Breastfeeding in dry weather helps protect babies from sickness as it transfers healthy parts of the mother to the child.  In dry weather make sure you continue to breastfeed children.  It is proven that breastfeeding straight for 6 months and then bringing in complimentary feeding with solids whilst continuing to breastfeed for up to two years helps children’s brains develop.
