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).

Monitor Growth To Fuel Your Child’s Growth Potential

Don’t let suboptimal growth hold your picky eating child back from chasing dreams!

Growth is an important indicator of your child’s overall health and nutritional status. Poor growth may be a result of imbalanced eating habits (eg picky eating), nutritional deficiency and in some cases underlying medical conditions. The growth trajectory of your child, can impact achievement of growth potential, especially height in adulthood.

Building a strong nutritional foundation in your child gives you the power to make a difference to your child’s current growth trajectory and more importantly, achieving growth potential. Help your child catch up on growth to achieve potential, supported by energy-dense, complete, balanced nutrition today as part of a healthy, well-balanced diet.

Know your child's growth percentiles 

What is the ideal percentile for your child's height and weight?

There is no one ideal percentile for any child. Therefore, it may be perfectly normal if your child comes in at the 25th percentile or the 75th percentile for height or weight. However it is still important to track height and weight over time and evaluate the data against the growth charts to identify your child's growth pattern.
