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.

Ovulation Calculator

The best time to try for a baby depends on when you ovulate. If your cycle is regular, you can use our calculator to create your personalised ovulation calendar or fertility chart, showing your most fertile days.

Calculate your ovulation dates

When was the first day of your last menstrual cycle? How many days in your menstrual cycle? How many days in your luteal phase?

Trying for a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life. While conception is a very natural process, you might be interested to know that there are only a few days each menstrual cycle when conception is actually possible! These most fertile days occur when your body is undergoing ovulation – the release of one of your eggs (or two if you have fraternal twins) from your ovaries. So becoming pregnant may simply be a matter of good timing to begin with and our Ovulation Calculator may help you get this timing right.

The length of your menstrual cycle can vary from month to month so it’s important to track your cycle.  To use this Ovulation Calculator, you need to be able to provide three pieces of information:

  1. When was the first day of your last menstrual cycle? - This is the day your last period stopped.
  2. How many days in your menstrual cycle – Measured from the first day of your cycle to the first day of your next cycle.
  3. The number of days in your luteal phase – This is the latter phase of your menstrual cycle starting from ovulation and ending on the first day of your next cycle. While the amount of time before ovulation can vary widely each month, the time after ovulation to the end of your cycle is usually fairly constant and unless you have a health problem that affects your periods or you become pregnant, this phase will be 14 to 16 days. If you are not sure about the length of your luteal phase, you can assume it is 14 days (the average length for most women).

Once you have entered your information into the ovulation calculator above, your personalised fertility calendar will show your most fertile days. Over to you!
