Is Breastfeeding Best for Babies?

| December 29, 2011

There’s a lot of debate when it comes to feeding and what’s best for your baby.

Exclusive breastfeeding, mixed feeding (breast and formula) or formula feeding?

The World Health Organisation (WHO) published a statement in January 2011 indicating findings show exclusive breastfeeding up to the age of 6 months is best for babies, as it helps to achieve optimal growth, development and health.

This statement on breastfeeding by the WHO is for all babies and not just babies in developing countries.
