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.

Tips for Expressing & Storing Breastmilk

Tips for expressing milk

  • Breastfeeding let-down requires certain hormones which are stimulated with the bonding and skin to skin contact of your baby. While expressing, it is important to try to relax, take some deep breathes and ideally be in a quiet, warm, relaxing area, away from distractions.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  • Emulate the skin to skin contact with your baby by gently massaging and stroking your breasts to help trigger the let-down.
  • Some mothers find pumping in front of their baby, looking at a picture of their baby or thinking about your baby and how much your breastmilk is helping them will encourage their let-down reflex.

Storage of breast milk

Breast milk does lose nutritional value the longer it is stored, so it is best to pump close to when the milk is required if possible. The most important part of expressing and storing breast milk is that both pump and storage containers are sterile and milk is stored correctly.

In a refrigerator it is best placed at the back; the coldest part. If you know the milk will not be used within that time it is best to be stored for an hour in the fridge and then transferred to a freezer.

Once the milk and the baby have begun feeding, the milk should be discarded at the end of the feed.
