In brief: MANY
Advantages of breastfeeding include: better nutrition, better immunity, reduced risks of ear infections, protection of mom from some cancers.
Also, breast milk is free, always available and always tailored exactly to your baby's needs. Breast feeding also allows the baby to decide how much to take, and probably helps prevent obesity.
