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.

Paternity Leave

Dads are definitely not forgotten when it comes to parental leave in Australia. So what are you eligible for?

As government initiatives change over time, the best place to get advice on your eligibility for different benefits – including paid maternity leave, is to seek out your nearest Centrelink office or go online to the Centrelink website to see what you are eligible for.  Current government initiatives you may want to ask them about include:

  • The Fair Work Act
  • Paid Parental Leave scheme
  • Partner Leave entitlements

In addition to what the government provides, you may also be eligible for paid and/or unpaid leave through your employer.  You should touch base with your human resources department to see what the parental leave policy is and benefits that apply to your workplace.
