*Important advice: breastfeeding is best for your baby. Ask your midwife or pediatrician for advice if you would like to use an infant formula.
*If you want to give follow-on formula from a bottle before the end of the 6th month, ask your pediatrician for advice.
Tip: the more solid food your baby gets, the more important the drinking issue becomes. Therefore, offer your baby liquid, but do not force them to drink.
Important: never leave the drinking bottle with your baby to suck on for a longer period of time. If your baby drinks just a little in the beginning, do not worry. As long as the baby’s stool is soft and the diapers are wet and heavy, your baby is getting enough liquid.
