We at Nutricia believe in providing the best nutrition for babies, which is why we recognise that breast milk is best. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you follow a healthy, balanced diet. The information provided on this website should never replace the advice you receive from a qualified healthcare professional.
Choosing how to feed your baby is an important decision, which is why professional advice should be followed before using an infant formula. As your baby’s individual needs have to be considered, it is recommended that all formula milks should be used on the advice of a healthcare professional.
Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breast milk, and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. The financial and social implications of choosing how to feed your baby should also be considered when selecting a feeding method. Because the proper use of an infant formula is important for the health of your baby, infant formula should be used and prepared as directed; incorrect preparation and use can make your baby ill.
