Breastfeeding is best for babies, please read this important notice first
Breast-feeding is the best form of nutrition for babies and provides many benefits to babies and mothers. The longer the babies are fed on breastmilk, the greater the benefits for the health of babies and mothers. According to the WHO’s recommendations, babies should be breastfed exclusively in the first 6 months and continue to have breastmilk with solid food in their diet until 2 years old or above. Breastmilk contains antibodies that enhance babies’ immunity and offers comprehensive nutrients that promote growth.
It is important that in preparation for and during breast-feeding, to protect your health and to ensure your baby receives the necessary nutrition, you should eat a healthy, balanced diet. Both you and your baby need some time to learn and adapt to breastfeeding. Since breastmilk is a biologically specific food for your baby and can be easily digested, so you need to breastfeed your baby frequently in the first few weeks. Once you choose not to breast-feed, or combined breast and bottle-feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breast-milk, and reversing the decision not to breast-feed is difficult.”
Always consult your Healthcare Professional for advice about feeding your baby. If you use infant formula, you should follow manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully. Powdered formula milk is not sterile. All feeding equipment for breastmilk or infant formula must be washed thoroughly and sterilized. Bacteria may grow if the milk is not prepared properly. It is best to make up a fresh feed each time your baby needs one, and to consume it within 2 hours to reduce the risk of infection. Any unused milk must be discarded.
The social and financial implications of using infant formula should be considered. Improper use of an infant formula or inappropriate foods or feeding methods may present a health hazard. If you use infant formula, you should follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully – failure to follow the instructions may make your baby ill.
