New born baby and MotherBreastfeeding is best for your baby, especially in their first 6 months of life. Breast milk contains all the nutrition and immune protection an infant needs. Breast milk is available in the right amount and temperature without the need of preparing bottles and formula.

For mothers, breastfeeding is an excellent way to build a strong bond with your baby. Breastfeeding can also reduce the risk of breast cancer and helps to reduce body weight to the pre-maternity stage.

Breast milk is also a rich source of DHA which is vitally important for the healthy development of your baby’s brain and vision.

Formula milk should only be considered when babies do not receive breast milk. Once you have started to feed your baby with formula milk, it may be difficult to reverse to exclusive breast feeding. The advice from a medical professional or health worker should be sought before making a decision to switch to formula milk.
