Do you already know if you want to breastfeed or bottle feed? Our maternity nurse can always help you with this choice if you are not yet out.

Breastfeeding is considered the best start. Not only for your baby but also for your own health. However, you can also decide to bottle feed with expressed milk or with formula. When we talk about formula, we mean formula.

Breastfeeding

If you want to breastfeed, our maternity nurse will support and guide you in this. She does everything to make your breastfeeding successful. If a little extra guidance is needed, a lactation consultant can be called in.

The World Health Organization recommends that you only breastfeed your baby during the first six months. This is because breastfeeding has several advantages:

Benefits for the baby:

  • Breastfeeding protects your baby against all kinds of infections
  • The composition of breast milk is tailored to the nutritional needs
  • Breastfeeding protects against allergic diseases
  • Breastfeeding has a positive effect on the central nervous system
  • Breastfeeding reduces the risk of bacterial infections, ear infections and meningitis

Benefits for the mother:

  • Breastfeeding promotes the recovery of your body after delivery
  • Breast milk is always at the right temperature and present
  • Breastfeeding can have a positive influence on the bonding process between you and your baby
  • Breastfeeding is cheap
  • Breastfeeding reduces the risk of bone loss

There can be several reasons to choose bottle feeding. Your maternity nurse can also advise and guide you in this.
