Breast-feeding is the best form of nutrition for infants.  The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that infants be exclusively breast-fed for the first 6 months of life, with supplemental breast-feedings for at least the first 2 years of life. In addition to the systematic benefits of mother’s milk, breast-feeding promotes healthy orofacial development, including nasal breathing and the prevention of adverse oral habits.  In short, breast-feeding contributes to the development of the entire craniofacial complex.
