The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding.

Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.
