Breast milk is the ideal food for your baby.
Not only is breastfeeding providing your infant all the nutrients he needs for a healthy growth, it is also a unique intimate moment between you as a mother and your baby.
Breast milk is the first natural food for infants: all the calories and nutrients the infant needs during the first month of life are contained in it and it covers up to more or less half of his nutritional needs during the second semester of life. During his second year of life, the infant gets one third of his nutritional needs from breast milk.
Furthermore breast milk supports the sensorial and cognitive development and protects the infant against infections and chronic illnesses.
The WHO recommends the colostrum, thick yellow milk liquid produced towards the pregnancy end, as the perfect food for the newborn baby, who needs to start feeding within the hour following birth. Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended until the age of 6 months.
Breastfeeding is the perfect way of providing an infants all the nutrients he needs for his normal healthy growth.
Nevertheless in a woman’s life there are sometimes reasons preventing from breastfeeding, either because the mother is unable or does not wish to breastfeed.
Adapted infant foods are available to feed her baby. There is an infant milk for infants up to 6 months of age, then a follow-on milk for babies aged 6 to 12 months and finally a growing-up milk for toddlers between 1 and 3 years of age.
