Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides the optimal balance of nutrition and protection during growth and development, while the use of any kind of formula milk may put infants and children at risk of diarrhoea, chest infections and other illnesses and their mothers at a higher risk of breast cancer. In light of this, babies should be exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months of life and with the introduction of nutritionally adequate and safe complementary foods from 6 months, continue breastfeeding for up to 2 years of age or beyond.
Good maternal nutrition is important in preparation for and during breastfeeding. If you are considering bottle feeding, always seek professional advice, as introducing bottle feeding, either partially or exclusively, may adversely affect breastfeeding by reducing the amount of your own breast milk supply and may be difficult to reverse should you change your mind as your baby may refuse to be fed by breastfeeding. Consider also the financial and health implications when deciding on a feeding method for your baby.
