Breastfeeding is the best nutrition for healthy growth and development of babies. Good maternal nutrition helps sustain an adequate supply and quality of breast milk. Unnecessary introduction of bottle-feeding, partially or fully, or of other complementary foods and drinks may have a negative impact on breastfeeding, which may be irreversible. Consult your doctor and consider the social and financial implications before deciding to use breast milk substitutes or if you have difficulty breastfeeding. Follow usage, preparation and storage instructions of breast milk substitutes or of other complementary foods and drinks carefully as improper or unnecessary use may pose a health hazard.

Once upon a massage

It may not look like hard work, but your child is busy exploring the world every waking moment – and this multisensory experience can tire him out. So something as simple as a bedtime massage can go a long way in easing him into a good night’s rest, before he takes on the world tomorrow.

 

Here, you will learn basic massage techniques through a bedtime story. Read it to your child as you knead away, and personalise it where we have indicated in BOLD. Our story massage is best practised in a cool, quiet room, with some baby oil to keep your little one’s skin moisturised. Even some spas aren’t this relaxing.

  • Lay your child on his back.
