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.

Growth and Development

Extraordinary changes take place during the first 1000 days of your baby’s life. By your baby’s first birthday they will have tripled their birth weight and increased in length by half!

Medical experts and researchers consider protein as one of the most important nutrients not only for your baby’s growth but also for their health and development. This is because protein is the most abundant component in the body, next to water, and can be found in every cell in your baby’s body. Proteins provide the material for muscles, blood and skin and have many other vital functions – transporting oxygen, forming antibodies to identify and neutralise harmful substances and forming enzymes and hormones that communicate information to organs.

Protein is so crucial that experts say the quality and quantity of proteins your baby gets in early life could impact their future health.


Breast milk proteins are the building blocks of life.


There is no need to worry about your baby’s protein intake – breast milk provides just the right mix of high quality protein in the amounts needed for your growing baby.

In fact researchers consider that protein in breast milk plays a potential role in reducing the risk of becoming overweight later in life. Optimal protein quantity and quality supports healthy growth including normal weight gain, which is associated with a reduced risk of later overweight and obesity.
