Breastfeeding is best for babies. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you eat a healthy, well-balanced diet and rest whenever you can. For help with breastfeeding, speak to your health professional or breastfeeding counsellor.
Infant milks are intended to replace breast milks when mothers cannot or choose not to breastfeed. It is recommended that they should be used only on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public nurse, dietitian or pharmacist.
If you are considering changing over from breastfeeding, talk to your midwife, health visitor or breastfeeding counsellor first, as it is not easy to go back once you’ve made the change. Partial bottle feeding with an infant milk may reduce the supply of your breast milk.
The cost and social implications of using an infant milk should be considered when deciding how to feed your baby. If you choose to bottle feed, it is very important that you use an infant milk throughout the first year (follow-on milks can be used from 6 months). Cow’s milk is not recommended as the main drink until after 1 year of age.
If you use an infant milk or follow-on milk, it is important for your baby’s health that you follow all preparation instructions carefully. Failure to choose an appropriate feed or to use it correctly can be harmful to your baby’s health.
The decision to begin weaning, or to include a follow-on milk formula before 6 months of age, should only be made on the advice of a doctor, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist based upon the individual infant’s specific growth and development needs.
