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.
Children were never made to be kept indoors. But don’t go buying hiking gear just yet. When it comes to raising kids outdoors, start in small ways like frolicking in the rain, planting a seed in your backyard, enjoying the view from a tree branch, or setting off on a scavenger hunt in your own neighbourhood. Because the best toy for your child has always been at the park near you. Batteries not required.
