Breast milk is best for your baby
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.

The Office-Friendly Workout

Sitting in an office chair for 8 long hours in a day might be a tad uncomfortable, especially if you’re a pregnant mum. But don’t worry!

It’s recommended to have these exercises at least 3 times a week. Time to get moving!
