Bottle Feeding Advice

Breast is Best for your baby...

Breastfeeding your baby is the safest and most natural way to feed your newborn baby. The Breastmilk passed from you to your baby gives him all the nutrients needed for the first six months of life and helps promote a strong immune system to ward off infection and diseases. Breastfeeding also allows you and your baby to create a special bond and connect physically and emotionally.

Breast Feeding is also Best for you...

Breastfeeding helps your uterus contract and return to its pre-pregnancy size. To get you back into shape more quickly, the extra fat stored in your body during pregnancy is converted to energy to help produce breast milk. Breast-feeding mothers burn 200 to 300 calories of stored fat each day to provide enough energy to breast-feed. This calorie burn typically lasts for the first three months.

Most nursing mothers want to give their children the best nutrition possible. Eating a healthy diet yourself is the most effective way to do this. By adopting healthy eating habits (and adding physical activity), you can expect to return to and maintain a healthy weight.
