Breastfeeding and Bottle Feeding

Both you and your baby benefit from breastfeeding and feeding can be a very loving time for you and the new bub to spend together. Breast milk has all the right amounts of carbohydrates, proteins, fats and vitamins for your baby’s growth and development. Your breast milk also contains antibodies which will support your baby s immunity and help prevent infections such as upper respiratory tract infections and gastroenteritis.
There is no doubt that breastfeeding is the best way to feed human babies.
We’ve always known that breastfeeding is the ideal way to feed our babies.
Although breastfeeding is a natural way to feed our babies, this does not mean it always comes easily.
Amongst all the other things new mothers need to think about, how to manage their baby’s breastfeeds when they’re out in public is another burning topic.
Even though breastfeeding is the most normal thing in the world, some women still feel uncomfortable doing it in public.
Bottle Feeding
The term formula feeding means giving your baby formula milk in a bottle.
Feeding your newborn is a wonderful time and can also be surprisingly stressful.
One of the biggest questions expectant and new parents face is whether to nourish their child through breast milk or formula.
Lactase is naturally produced in the small cells that line the intestinal canal; hence any condition that affects the health and integrity of these cells can impair lactase production.
If you have ever tried to be more informed about infant formula, you may have found information somewhat sparse.
Starting solids
Introducing baby solids is an important and exciting step in your growing baby’s health and development.
One of the most important things you can give your baby is a balanced, healthy diet.
What do babies need to grow and develop into bouncing babies and healthy active toddlers? Looking after the nutritional needs of an infant until six months is fairly easy: feed them breastmilk (ideally) or formula.
Remember that all babies are different. They eat different amounts, have different taste and texture preferences, and progress at different rates.
Between 4 and 6 months, although most commonly closer to 6 months. Up to the first 4 to 6 months of an infant’s life, breast milk or formula will provide all their nutritional requirements for growth. At around 6 months, the iron stores that baby gained in utero begin to run low, which is one of the reasons we start solids around this time.
Kids nutrition
One of the most common concerns of parents of toddlers and preschoolers relates to fussy or picky eating and nutrition.
The talk of the town these days is fish oils, but what are they? We seek to answer some of the questions over these popular oils and their relatives.
Food pyramids have been around for about 20 years.
Toddlers and preschoolers often request fad foods, turn up their noses at any food with a hint of green or only eat food presented in an unusual way.
Being the common start to the day, breakfast cereals are an important part of a healthy diet.
