The breast milk helps the babies to grow and protects them from various infectious diseases [3] like prematurity, malabsorption, short-gut syndrome, diarrhea, intolerance and immunodeficiency diseases [4] as the mother’s milk transfer IgG antibodies which develop the natural acquired immunity of the babies. It gives them a better chance of survival [3].
