Breast feeding is recommended as the optimal source of nutrition for your baby for the first 6 months of life, by various organizations around the world, including WHO (the World Health Organization).
Breast milk can provide all your baby’s nutrition needs for the first 6 months of life, exclusively, and then as part of a balanced and healthy diet for up to 12 months or longer if it suits both mother and child.
The first few days’ milk after birth, contains a thick, nutrient dense milk called colostrum that is important for the immune system. It contains anti-bodies, and a higher proportion of protein, minerals and vitamins initially, everything that your baby will need.
A few days after birth you will notice that the breast milk will thin out and become whiter, as your body adapts to producing enough milk for you to feed your baby.
There is also a reduced chance of any tummy upsets with breast milk. There is less chance of breast milk being contaminated (compared to unsterilized bottle, water etc.), and breast milk is easily digested by your baby as it has been perfectly designed for your baby’s nutrition needs.
There are not only nutritional reasons for breast feeding, but there are other factors that breast feeding also provides.
• Free, and readily available
• Convenient and always the right temperature
• Helps to form a bond with your baby
• Uses calories to produce milk, may help you regain your pre-pregnancy weight faster
Growing toddlers need a balanced, healthy variety of foods to meet their nutritional needs.
• Meat and Fish are a good source of Protein, Iron and Zinc. Eggs are another good source of protein and Vitamin A.
• Dairy Products such as milk, and cheese provide a source of protein, calcium and B vitamins
• Orange Coloured fruits and veges, i.e. carrots, pumpkin are a source of carotene which is needed to make Vitamin A
• Fats and Oils in moderation are a dense source of energy, providing essential fats needed for growth
• Vitamin C will help in the absorption of iron (from plant sources) from the diet. Foods that are good sources of Vitamin C include Citrus and other fruits, Tomatoes and green leafy vegetables
Foods to avoid for you toddler include things like chips, fizzy drinks, lollies and chocolate. These are not nutritionally balanced and may contain things like excessive salt, additives, sugar and sweeteners which should be avoided. If you do give these types of foods, try to restrict them to special occasions or as a treat.
Your toddler’s stomach is smaller than your own, and it is important that you are giving them a range of foods so they can get their required nutrients. It is normal for them to be fussy, and you can persevere trying novel foods, and your toddler may refuse a new food several times before actually eating it.
