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.

It’s getting crowded in there…

Childbirth is just around the corner. You’re ready to go – and your baby is getting into position, almost ready to be born. So as you get ready to give birth, what’s happening inside you?

In the last stage of your pregnancy, your baby gets ready for childbirth too. It goes through dramatic changes, growing longer and heavier. Here are some of the things that are happening to your baby as you prepare to give birth:

  • Underneath Pregnant woman keeping her hands on bellyyour baby’s skin, a layer of fat builds up to help maintain body temperature outside your womb.
  • You’re providing your baby with important last minute supplies of nutrients, including fatty acids called DHA and ARA. You’re also providing protection by passing infection-fighting proteins called antibodies through the placenta. If you breastfeed, your milk will continue providing more antibodies after your baby is born.
  • Many of your baby’s organs and systems are fully developed now. But some, including the brain and digestive tract, will keep developing even after birth.
  • Meanwhile your baby’s sucking muscles are already primed for action. In fact, most babies suck on their fingers or arms while still in the womb. By the time your baby is born, it will have a powerful sucking instinct that helps feeding get off to a strong start.

If you could see inside your womb as you get ready to give birth, this is what you’d see:

  • Every day, your baby’s nervous system is working better.
  • Lungs continue to develop and your baby practises the motions of breathing.
  • Your baby puts on more weight and shifts head-down in your uterus.
  • Your body begins providing your baby with antibodies to help ward off infection after birth.

As the big day nears, your baby drops lower in your pelvis to prepare for birth.
