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.

Baby at 40+

If you’re over 40, your chances of conceiving are less than when you were younger. So if you’ve made up your mind that you want to have a baby, get things moving soon. Start by booking your preconception checkup.

Pregnancy over 40

Career choices, late marriage, remarriage, waiting for financial stability… there are many reasons why Australian women are having their babies later in life. So why not you? Being more mature and prepared for childbirth and parenting can be an advantage: psychologically, socially and financially, you have a stable foundation to give your baby.  But like any new mum, there are going to be many challenges.

 The facts

  • You’re not alone… The average age for a woman to give birth in 2012 is just over 30 years and there appears to be a trend showing an increasing number of births for women over 40 years of age.
  • You may take longer to conceive… Your fertility starts to decline at around the age of 30 and drops more significantly from the age of 35. At 40 your chance for pregnancy is only 5% per menstrual cycle.
  • You can do this… With good medical care, many 40+ pregnancies pass without complications. If you are physically fit, have not suffered from any earlier miscarriages and do not suffer from sterility, you are off to a good start.
  • During your pregnancy and childbirth, you may be at increased risk of complications due to your age. You should discuss any of your concerns with your doctor prior to conception.

 How can you boost your chances?

  • Stay calm and confident.
  • Keep fit.
  • Make sure you eat a healthy diet, including suitable supplements recommended by your health care professional.
  • Book your preconception checkup as soon as you can.
