Is breastmilk best for my baby?

Is breastmilk best for my baby?

Breast milk is nature's perfect food for your baby, and it is wonderful to be able to breastfeed your baby for as long as you feel comfortable and able.

The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding up to 6 months of age, with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years of age or beyond.

Brush your baby's teeth as soon as they are visible in the mouth with a baby toothbrush, and no toothpaste until the age of 1.  Then use a children's toothpaste, which has less fluoride, until the age of 6. Brushing your baby's teeth is important, because a part of the milk is broken down into simple sugars.

Even though the baby teeth will fall out, it is important that your baby's teeth are brushed daily, before bed, and preferably twice a day, because decay in the baby teeth is often followed by decay forming in the adult teeth later on in life. Also this will set your baby up with good habits for life.

There are many cases of toddlers and small children needing general anaesthetic to have their baby teeth attended to, because they are in pain, as a result of extensive decay, and being too young to be able to sit through treatment in the dental chair.
