Breastfeeding is best for babies

Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides many benefits. As the natural way of feeding, breast milk gives your baby the best start in life. Breast milk contains all the nutrients needed and a combination of hormones, antibodies and prebiotics that help support their immune systems and promote healthy growth and development. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you eat a healthy, balanced diet.

Our products

With over 100 years of caring for babies and inspired by 40 years of research into breast milk and early life nutrition, Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition combines science and experience to support parents, careers and healthcare professionals. We continually strive to improve our products for mothers, babies and toddlers.

At Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition, we support the World Health Organization (WHO) global public health recommendation that calls for exclusive breast-feeding for the first six months of age and continued breast-feeding up to two years and beyond, combined with the safe introduction of appropriate complementary foods.

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 social and financial implications of using an infant milk should be considered.

Please consult a healthcare professional to make an informed choice on feeding your baby milks & weaning onto solid foods (after six months).

Note that improper use of an infant milk or inappropriate foods or feeding methods may present a health hazard. If you use an infant milk, you should follow manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully – failure to follow the instructions may make your baby ill.

Some local regulatory authorities in Africa require changes on the primary and or secondary packaging of our products.

Consequently, the look and feel of our products may vary slightly from country to country to be compliant with the local regulations.

To ensure that you get the compliant product for your country, kindly consult your Healthcare Professional to help you make the right choices for your baby.

Breastmilk is the ideal food for infants: it is best adapted to their specific needs. A healthy and balanced diet of the mother is important for the preparation and continuation of breastfeeding. Mixed breastfeeding can interfere with breastfeeding and reduce milk production. It’s hard to reverse the choice of not breastfeeding. If an infant formula is used for a non-breastfed baby, it is important to carefully observe the instructions for preparation and use and to follow the advice of the medical profession. Incorrect use could pose a risk to the child’s health. Socio-economic implications must be considered in the use of infant formula. After 6 months, in addition to breastmilk, water is the only essential drink. Do not hesitate to consult your health care professional if you need advice on feeding your baby.
