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.

Introducing solids is an important milestone in your child’s development and you want to get it right, for what goes in today has the potential to impact their health later on. So let’s help you get it right.

Babies’ growth in the first year of life needs to be fuelled by plenty of energy and nutrients. Growth is often not steady and can occur in spurts, meaning that hunger and appetite can be unpredictable. Starting solids is a learning experience for both parents and baby and needs to be done progressively to develop baby’s tastes.

Remember, you’re introducing a new consistency that is thicker than breast milk or infant formula. The purpose of the first stage is to accustom your baby to the more solid consistency of the food, so don’t worry too much about volume. Keep in mind that food is meant to be enjoyed, and your approach to feeding as a parent is central to your child’s early feeding experience.

Mess making is all part of your baby’s first attempts to learn to feed themselves and is an important part of the learning process.

Breast milk is the ideal source of nutrition for your baby and provides the necessary nutrients, fluids and energy up to around 6 months of age. At around 6 months, breast milk alone is no longer sufficient to meet baby’s nutritional requirements, particularly for energy, protein, iron and zinc.
