Breastfeeding is best for babies and is recommended for as long as possible during infancy. Breastfeeding provides many benefits to both mother and baby. It is difficult to reverse the decision not to breastfeed.
If you decide to breastfeed it is important you eat a balanced diet in preparation for and during breastfeeding and we recommend you speak to your healthcare professional about the preparation and maintenance of breastfeeding. Combining breast and bottle feeding in the beginning weeks of life may have a negative effect on breastfeeding by reducing the supply of your own breast milk. The social and financial implications of using infant milks should also be considered.
If you decide not to breastfeed it is important that infant milks are used properly and manufacturer’s instructions are followed closely. Unnecessary or improper use of infant milks may present a health hazard. Inappropriate foods or feeding methods may also present a risk to your baby.
We recommend that you speak to your healthcare professional for advice on how to feed your baby.
