From the moment we know we are to be parents, we realise we have the responsibility for the care of our babies forever.
A correct diet for your baby should begin in utero. It is essential that mothers look after themselves and maintain a balanced diet to promote the development of the foetus.
A new life for the parents as well as the baby begins with its birth. Breast-feeding is an essential stage in the baby’s development as breast milk provides essential nutritional requirements and confers immunities to disease.
You have many months to see his face and now with his arrival, you can’t believe it. It is here! Now begins the most wonderful but also difficult time. Before the arrival of the baby, most parents have made the decision whether to breastfeed or to rely on formula.
It is always a personal decision but you should be aware that the World Health Organisation and the majority of pediatricians, world-wide, recommend breast milk as a unique source of nutrition for the first six months of baby”s life and then as a supplement to a balance diet, during each stage of development, up to a maximum of two years.
While we realise the benefits of breast feeding, it cannot always be achieved. With the best will in the world, sometimes there are complications that prevent the realisation of your desire. Formulas, nowadays are scientifically balanced so that your baby will receive all the essential nutrients. So, don’t feel guilty and try to make feeding times with your baby both intimate and special.
