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.

Getting in the zone

It’s natural to feel a little nervous about giving birth. Labour is challenging. But by facing it calmly, you’ll have a better experience. Here are some practical tips to help you.

In the zone: tips for labour

Stay positive and try to relax. If you believe you can do this, you’ll find it easier to weather the pain. Assure yourself that everything will be fine.

2. Review your class notes.

Revise what you’ve learned in your childbirth education classes. If you know what to expect during labour, it will help you be less anxious when your contractions intensify and become more frequent.

3. Brush up on labour research.

Read books and magazine articles about giving birth. Because each woman’s labour is different, it helps to become familiar with the many ways women experience childbirth.

4. Prepare a birth plan.

Participate as fully as possible in the birthing experience by preparing a birth plan to help clarify your goals.

5. Share your fears.

Tell your partner or support person what worries you. Explain that you’re counting on their strength and encouragement during labour.

6. Labour isn’t forever.

The average is 14 hours for first-time mothers and most of that time is spent on the first stage. Remind yourself that the memory of labour pain is often erased by the euphoria of seeing your newborn.

7. Seek support.

Talk to a friend, perhaps someone you’ve met at your childbirth education class. Share your concerns with them.

8. Remember that pain-relief is available.
You won’t be considered a failure if you ask for it. There are many pain relief options to explore. Many of which will likely be covered in your birthing classes. Ask your doctor or specialist if you have concerns with any of the options and include your ideas and intentions in your birthing plan.

If you ever feel your confidence waver, tell yourself that women throughout the ages have given birth successfully,and and try to relax.
