Feeding an Infant

The process of feeding an infant is a ritual for the mother and her newborn baby, which is not only about food, but also about the communication and warmth that strengthens their relationship.

Ideally, from the first until the sixth month of its life, your baby should feed on your breast milk. If this is not possible, your baby will be fed with first-stage infant formula, which can be bought from pharmacies.

Creams and solid foods should be introduced into the baby's diet after the sixth month as babies at this age do not have absolute control of the muscles in their tongue and lips and it is therefore difficult to feed them with a spoon.

In addition, the digestive tract of infants at this age is not able to tolerate some solids. When that time comes, it would be good to start with suitable soft foods, according to the instructions of the pediatrician.

The nutritional information and recommendations on infant-toddler diet are indicative and refer to general guidance for this age group. Time that every child can be introduced to solid foods or add more to it’s diet, must be individualized. We recommend to set advise from your pediatrician about the specific nutritional needs of your child.
