When it comes to babies, Breastfeeding is best, and provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness. During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. Infant formula is intended to replace breast-milk when mothers do not breastfeed. A decision not to breast-feed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, could reduce the supply of breast-milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use, such as the use of unboiled water, unboiled bottles or incorrect dilution may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, such as the preparation requirements and the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.

Our Baby Website mentions food, toddler milks and sometimes infant formula.

What Support Is Available If You’ve Decided To Feed Your Baby Formula?

There are many parents out there just like you, who have for whatever reason, decided not to breastfeed, and given this is to be an unlikely easy decision, it’s important to know what support is there for you in your decision making process. Apart from friends and family, or mums group companions who can provide you with support in your decision, your health care professional (e.g. Doctor or health care nurse) will be the best person to give you current advice on which baby formula may be best for your baby.

As the aim of the MAIF Agreement is “to contribute to the provision of safe and adequate nutrition for infants, by the protection and promotion of breast feeding and by ensuring the proper use of breast milk substitutes, when they are necessary, on the basis of adequate information and through appropriate marketing and distribution,” your decision on how to feed your baby should be respected by your health care professional. The infant formula companies ensure that the products they provide are safe and nutritious.

The ‘NHMRC Infant Feeding Guidelines’ is a report published by the Australian government for healthcare workers. This report highlights key points of responsibilities for Health workers, including:

  • Respecting and supporting your informed decision not to breastfeed;
  • Educating and supporting you about formula feeding;
  • They must know how to demonstrate correct safe and hygienic preparation of baby formula, including using the correct scoop, and how to feed a baby with a bottle.
