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.

Pregnancy Test

Early pregnancy symptoms can be misleading. There are many possible reasons for how you're feeling. If you think you're pregnant, take a home pregnancy test – or two. If you test positive, get the results confirmed by your doctor.

Home pregnancy tests

Pregnancy test

Home pregnancy tests are available from pharmacies and give you a result in just five or so minutes.

How do they work?

About 11 to 14 days after conception – or about a day after a missed period – a urine test can detect the pregnancy hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin).

Are they accurate?

While home pregnancy tests are fairly accurate, they can sometimes give you a false result, so it’s a good idea to repeat the test a week later to double check. Follow up with your healthcare practitioner if you test positive – or if you aren’t sure about the result.

Tips for a more accurate result

  1. Read the directions on your test before you start and follow them carefully.
  2. Don’t drink too much fluid beforehand as it can dilute your HCG levels.
  3. Test your urine first thing in the morning when it’s most concentrated.
  4. If you test negative but you are still unsure, make an appointment to see your doctor. A pregnancy test conducted by your doctor is more likely to be accurate than a home pregnancy test.

My test is positive? What next?

It’s time to see your doctor to confirm your pregnancy.  A blood test can detect hCG as early as 11 to 14 days after ovulation. Your doctor will also organise any other relevant tests to check everything is on track for prenatal care.
