Feeding Your New Baby
As a new mum you have a lot of things to think about.
Breastfeeding is what your body is expecting to do when your baby is born, and it's important for your baby as he or she continues to grow.
Breastfeeding your baby is an amazing achievement because every day that you breastfeed makes a difference to your baby's health. There are also lot of benefits for you as a mum. Breastfeeding your baby is what only you can do, and nobody else can. It is a very special experience that will give you a closeness to your baby which will make your baby feel loved and secure.
Breastfeeding is the healthiest way to feed your baby. Breast milk is all your baby needs for the first 6 months. After that, giving your baby breast milk alongside other food will help them continue to grow and develop.
