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.
Children were never made to be kept indoors. But don’t go buying hiking gear just yet. When it comes to raising kids outdoors, start in small ways like frolicking in the rain, planting a seed in your backyard, enjoying the view from a tree branch, or setting off on a scavenger hunt in your own neighbourhood. Because the best toy for your child has always been at the park near you. Batteries not required.
