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.

Things To Watch Out For

Your body changes so rapidly during pregnancy that you may sometimes wonder if all the pregnancy symptoms you notice are normal. While usually there’s nothing at all to worry about, there are some pregnancy signs you should never ignore.

When to call the doctor

If you experience any of these symptoms during your pregnancy or anything else that may be of concern to you, contact your doctor immediately:

  • Bleeding. 
  • Severe nausea and vomiting. These are very common symptoms in pregnancy but if too severe, you risk dehydration and malnutrition that could seriously affect your baby.
  • Significant decrease in foetal movements. Baby’s may sleep up to 90% of the time and have active periods of up to 40 minutes at a time and this is when you may feel movements. If you are concerned that there has been a decrease in movements, consult your doctor.
  • Severe headache, abdominal pain, visual disturbances and swelling symptoms should never be ignored as it may be an indication that something else is going on with your pregnancy. Call your doctor straight away.
  • Flu. Pregnancy puts stress on the immune system, making you more prone to catch infections. Flu symptoms may include fever, cough, weakness, headache and muscle and joint pain. It’s best not to take chances when you’re expecting, so if you feel this way, contact your doctor.
  • Early contractions. Some women experience a type of contraction called Braxton-Hicks contractions, which do not increase in intensity and generally subside within an hour. Initially, when you are in the early stages of labour, your contractions may be mild and irregularly spaced. But if you experience contractions increasing in intensity and becoming closer together (about 7 to10 minutes apart), you may be going into labour early. If it’s too early for your baby to be born and contractions start, consult your doctor immediately.
  • Waters breaking. Some women experience their waters breaking as a gush of liquid. For others, it’s only a trickle. Sometimes it’s hard to tell, as you may also experience urine leakage due to your pregnancy putting pressure on your bladder. If you’re unsure if your waters have broken, go to the bathroom to empty your bladder. If the fluid keeps coming, then your waters have broken. If you think your waters have broken and your baby is not due then contact your hospital or doctor immediately.
  • Other warning signs. Consult your doctor if you experience any other symptoms, such as haemorrhoids, vaginal itching or thrush, pain or scalding when passing urine, unusual or severe abdominal or back pain, fainting or heartburn.
