The benefits of breast feeding for baby

  • It's completely natural
  • It's easy to digest
  • It provides the best nutrition for your baby
  • It helps to support their immune system
  • Breast feeding helps your baby grow!

Breast feeding is great for mum, too!

  • It's ready to go when you are
  • It's exactly the right temperature
  • There's no need to sterilise bottles
  • It helps to reduce your loss of calcium
  • It helps you bond with your baby
  • It may help to get you back to your pre-pregnancy weight

In preparation for and during breast feeding, it's important that mums eat a healthy, balanced diet.

Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breast milk, and reversing the decision not to breast feed is difficult. If you're thinking about bottle feeding your baby, always seek professional advice first - from your doctor, midwife or healthcare professional.

Supporting choices for mums

Before you enter, please read this important statement:

If you are able, breastfeeding is best. It provides all the nutritional health benefits as Mother Nature intended. In readying for and during breastfeeding, it's important that mums eat a healthy, balanced diet.

If you're considering bottle feeding, seek professional medical advice first. Introducing bottle feeding either partially or exclusively, may reduce the supply of your own breast milk, which makes reversing the decision not to breast feed difficult. Also consider the social and financial implications, such as convenience and cost over time.

When using infant formula, always follow the instructions for use carefully, unnecessary or improper use may make your baby ill.
