Whether you nurse or use formula, feeding time is a great time to bond with your baby. Learn more about your options below and talk with your doctor to determine how best to feed your baby.

Breastfeeding Your Baby

Many healthcare professionals agree that nothing is better for babies than breast milk. Nutritionally speaking, it's tailor-made for your child. It has all the vitamins and minerals that babies need, it's easier to digest than formula and it's less likely to cause allergic reactions. Breastfeeding lets a mother pass on antibodies from her own immune system through her breast milk, to boost her baby's defence against infections. And it naturally adapts to your baby's changing needs over weeks and months.

Other Ways to Nourish

Of course, sometimes mothers cannot breastfeed, due to medical problems or other special circumstances. Discuss with your paediatrician how best to feed your baby. No matter how you decide to feed your baby, always be sure to hold them while feeding. The cuddling that comes with nursing and feeding helps to build a strong, loving bond between you and your baby. Invite your partner to participate — feeding time is a great opportunity for your baby and partner to feel close.
