Breast feeding has numerous advantages. We believe that it is the best source of nutrition for your baby. It is natural and does not require the complex preparations associated with formula feeds. We therefore encourage all mothers to breast feed. Even if you are only able to breast feed for a short time or part of the day, your baby will derive some benefits from it. There are many reasons why breast feeding may not be an option for some families. There are some very good baby formulas available, and we will work with you to determine which is best for your baby.
