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.

A piece of raw fruit or vegetable wrapped and tied in a piece of muslin (or similar fine meshed fabric such as nylon or terylene curtain net) makes good finger food that’s safe for baby to hold, chew or suck on while teething.
Fruit can be chilled briefly in the freezer so it is cold and soothing on sore gums.
Place fruit or vegetable in the centre of the muslin. Gather up the edges to firmly enclose the food in a tight parcel and tie securely (trim off any loose string or threads). Baby will soon learn how to hold and suck or bite on the juicy parcel.
