Breast milk & breastfeeding

Important note

Breastfeeding is the best and cheapest form of nutrition for your baby and provides protection against illness. Frequent feeding is the best way to encourage milk flow. Take care to eat a balanced diet during breastfeeding. The decision not to breastfeed is difficult to reverse. If you give additional formula, this can affect successful breastfeeding. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months. Seek advice from your clinic or paediatrician. Improper preparation of infant milk can lead to health damage. Therefore, please pay close attention to the tips and preparation instructions on the package.
