By breast feeding your baby, you would have taken that first vital step to your newborn?s healthy growth and development.
Breastfeeding Made Simple The Smart Nutrition Advisory Panel of experts has jointly developed this ‘Breastfeeding Made Simple’ guide. As a group of experts in the fields of nutrition, dietetics, paediatrics and lactation, it is our mission to assure you that breastfeeding is easy, natural and adequately nourishes your baby. Every bit of information contained in this guide has been geared towards that purpose and we are confident that they will dispel any concerns you might have.
From the lofty portals of the World Health Organisation to the most remote health centre, you will find doctors, nutritionists and dietitians unanimously agreeing that breast milk and breastfeeding are best for babies.
One of the problems you will have to cope with when you are breast feeding, or planning to, is that many people will give you different, sometimes conflicting advice and information about breast feeding.
In pregnancy your baby was growing inside you, and you were aware that you needed to eat to help him grow and develop healthily. During breast feeding, your baby is growing fast and depends entirely on the milk you are making.
The production of milk depends on your baby?s needs and demands. However, if you lack confidence in your ability to breast feed or are anxious and suffering from stress, this simple natural process will not work!
