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.

How Does My Menstrual Cycle Work?

Your menstrual cycle determines when you can conceive. The opportunity comes around roughly once a month for several days. This happens when you ovulate. At ovulation, your body releases an egg and the journey begins.

Getting pregnant… the basics.

For you to conceive, two things have to happen:

  • Ovulation: Your ovary releases an egg mid cycle – around day 15 of a 28-day menstrual cycle. (The day is counted from the day your period starts.)
  • Fertilisation: For 12 to 48 hours after its release, the egg can be fertilised by sperm. This is when you are at your most fertile.

The hotspot: mid cycle

You are most likely to conceive mid cycle. Timing depends on your cycle length, which varies from woman to woman. A normal cycle can be anything from 23 to 35 days.

When are you fertile?

If you have a 28-day cycle, it works like this.

  • Day 1: Your period starts day 1
  • Mid cycle: You ovulate around day 15

Hotspot: You’re most likely to conceive if you have sex in the two or three days leading up to ovulation and the day following ovulation. Days 12-16
