If you are able, breastfeeding is best. It provides all the nutritional health benefits as Mother Nature intended. In readying for and during breastfeeding, it's important that mums eat a healthy, balanced diet.
If you're considering bottle feeding, seek professional medical advice first. Introducing bottle feeding either partially or exclusively, may reduce the supply of your own breast milk, which makes reversing the decision not to breast feed difficult. Also consider the social and financial implications, such as convenience and cost over time.
When using infant formula, always follow the instructions for use carefully, unnecessary or improper use may make your baby ill.

Makes about ½ cup apple purée
Instead of peeling and chopping an apple you can cook a whole apple in the microwave then scoop out the cooked pulp for baby’s purée.
Cook time for an 800 watt oven
Wash and dry apple.
Use an apple corer to remove core and stem.
With a sharp knife make a shallow cut just through the apple skin, going right around the middle (equator), then right around from stem to blossom end. This divides skin into 8 sections for easy peeling later.
Place apple in an oven-glass bowl or casserole, cover, then microwave for 4 ½ to 5 minutes. Leave apple to cool until you can handle it.
Use a teaspoon to scoop apple flesh away from skin. Discard skin.
Either purée apple using a hand-held electric blender, or rub apple through a sieve to ensure no little tough bits remain. Thin if necessary with a little boiled water.
Serve warm or cool.
