(HealthDay News) -- For the first few months, newborns need sustenance from either breast milk or formula.

Since breast milk contains disease-fighting antibodies, the womenshealth.gov Web site says breast-feeding may help reduce the risk of these health problems in babies:

  • Ear infections.
  • Stomach viruses.
  • The skin condition atopic dermatitis.
  • Asthma.
  • Obesity.
  • Childhood leukemia.
