Although it is what we were all naturally meant to do in our lives, it is one of the most difficult tasks that you will ever have to undertake in your whole life but many people say that with all the hard work and all of the sleepless nights, the experience is worthwhile. Discovering that you are pregnant can give rise to a wide range of emotions ranging from excitement about the future to fear and nervousness about what is going to happen in the future. However, if you are pregnant, the best thing that you can do for yourself is to study the subject and use the nine months that you might have to educate yourself, learn about the process, and read about what you can expect in those first few months which are the hardest months of all.
You have to know what and how to feed your child because at this age, one mistake can cause a lot of problems. Many mothers do not know what to feed their children and this causes their children to develop weakened immune systems and various problems later in life.
A baby feeding consultant Melbourne will tell you that the baby will need to be breast fed for the first six months of his or her life exclusively as this is enough for the child to get all of his or her nutrients but it is important that you know just how much milk the child needs. You will need to get advice because children will not always ask for the milk and it is up to you as the parent to know how much to feed the baby.
If you find that you are unable to breast feed, make sure that you have SOS feeding therapy instead of giving up immediately and switching to formula milk as many parents in this modern day tend to do. Keep in mind that your baby is human and not a baby cow which makes cow’s milk unnatural and dangerous for your baby even though the milk industry will not tell you that. It is important that you do not try to start the baby on solids too early in life and six months is the perfect time to start introducing solids while continuing to give the child breast milk for a minimum of another six months although ideally, it is recommended that you feed the baby breast milk along with other food such as fruit and vegetable purees for at least the first two years of the babies life.
