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.

Protein Quality and Quantity

Breast milk is truly amazing! Did you know that the composition of breast milk changes depending on the age of your baby? This is because you baby’s growth and development needs change over time. The crucial element that adjusts in response to these changes in growth is PROTEIN. When very young, your baby will drink small quantities of breast milk, so during this time, the protein content per 100mL of breast milk is high to ensure your baby’s rapid growth is supported. As your baby gets older, they will drink larger quantities of breast milk so the protein content per 100mL goes down to continue ensuring that your baby’s growth and development needs are met.

Protein is made of smaller components called amino acids. Each amino acid plays a specific role in your baby’s health and development and, because of this, they are each required in specific quantities. It is the combination of these amino acids in just the right quantities that defines the quality of proteins.


It is the unique quality and quantity of breast milk protein that makes it so special
