Breast milk is best for your baby

The World Health Organisation recommends 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. After six months of age, infants should receive age appropriate 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.


Your Newborn's appearance

Your Newborn's appearance

Your baby's reflexes

Getting a grip-understanding the reflexes that come naturally.

Your baby already has a good grip, and many automatic reactions or reflexes.


Nurturing your baby's intellectual and social development

Together time: Interaction between you and your baby, even at this young age, will help determine his intellectual, social, and emotional development. How you respond to his cries, satisfy his needs, and show him love will determine how he sees the world later.


Sensory motor development

Sensory overload-from the dark womb to a world full of sights and sounds.

From the moment your baby enters this world he's learning.


Dreaming of sleep

Coping with your 1-month-old's unpredictable sleep patterns can be a challenge.

Newborn babies often seem to have no real sleeping pattern.
