Importent of breast milk

1Breast milk or iron-fortified infant formula is the only food a baby needs until 4-6 months of age. Breast milk is the best food for baby. However, iron-fortified infant formula also provides babies with all the nutrients they need to grow.

3 Avoid adding cereal to the baby's bottle. Adding cereal means the baby will not getting the formula needed. Cereal in a bottle can cause choking in young babies.
4 Avoid adding juice or other sweetened drinks to the bottle. Although babies like the sweet taste of juice and other beverages, these drinks fill them up and take the place of more nutritious breast milk or formula that babies need. Babies may be offered liquid from a cup between the ages of 6-8 months.
