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.
Because superheroes make great role models, here’s an activity to take role-modelling to a fun, new level! Get your child to perform 6 tasks, each of them delivering a value that the superhero version of themselves should possess. Once all the tasks are completed, your child will achieve superhero status, and you can reward him with a DIY cape and headband, or any reward of your choice.
