Breast milk is best for your baby

Breast milk is best for babies. The World Health Organisation (WHO) and Health Promotion Board (HPB) recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. At around six months of age (but not before 4 months), infants should receive nutritionally adequate and age-appropriate complementary foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.

Abbott Singapore fully recognises breast milk’s primacy, value and superiority and supports exclusive breastfeeding as recommended by the WHO.

The HPB recommends that infants start on age-appropriate complementary foods at around 6 months, whilst continuing breastfeeding for up to 2 years or beyond to meet their evolving nutritional requirements. If no longer breastfeeding, toddlers can switch to full cream milk after 12 months. This should be complemented by a good variety of solid foods from the four main food groups (fruits, vegetables, grains, meat and alternatives).

Right nutrition helps build the foundation for a child’s ability to learn, grow and thrive. Studies suggest that babies who are breastfed have stronger immune systems, which may be due in part to the presence of 2’-FL.

Abbott has pioneered over 15 years of research on 2’-FL, an immune-nourishing prebiotic found in breast milk. Combined with nucleotides, an immune system developer, they support the strengthening of your child's natural defences.

2'-fl and nucleotides support your child’s two systems of immunity

Immunity Droplet

What is

An immune nourishing prebiotic found in breast milk that supports a child’s innate immunity system. 2’-FL feeds the healthy bacteria in the gut, allowing it to work better. Having healthy microbes in the little one’s gut is critical to immunity development.

What are nucleotides?

Act as essential building blocks in the body. Studies have shown that it helps to build immune cells and trigger release of antibodies, which helps to support the immune system that kids develop over time.
