Breastmilk is the most precious gift a mother can give her baby, providing nutrients necessary for healthy growth and antibodies that protect your baby from disease. The time spent breastfeeding also helps to foster a stronger bond with your baby.
The benefits are so great, that Health Professionals recommend that your baby should be fed exclusively breastmilk from birth to six months, and then that breastmilk be given in addition to solid foods until at least 12 months.
Breastfeeding is such an important part of the amazing journey of motherhood. Our colleagues in Singapore have put together a comprehensive website that covers a variety of topics relating to breastfeeding, including:
