Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides many benefits. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you eat a healthy, balanced diet. Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breastmilk, and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. Always consult your doctor for advice about feeding your baby. If you use infant formula milk, you should follow manufacturer’s instructions for correct bottle preparation.

At Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition, we support the World Health organization’s global public health recommendation calling for exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life and continued breastfeeding for as long as possible with the introduction of safe and appropriate complementary foods thereafter.
