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. After six months of age, infants should receive age appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.
It’s important for your little one to explore the outdoors, especially when you live in an urban jungle like Kuala Lumpur. Being outdoors will allow them to be curious and self-confident. Being outdoors is also a great way to increase their physical skills and most importantly, it gives you and your little one a chance to bond over new experiences!
