Whether you nurse or use formula, feeding time is a great time to bond with your baby. Learn more about your options below and talk with your doctor to determine how best to feed your baby.

Feeding Your Baby

Studies have shown that routine touch can lead to improved physiological, cognitive, emotional and social development. Your baby’s first emotional bonds are built from physical contact, and these serve as the foundation for emotional and intellectual development later in life.

So while you hold her in your arms, whether you feed her from bottle or breast, your baby is getting the benefits of your touch (and your smell) along with the nutrients she needs, nurturing her happy healthy development.

Other Ways to Nourish

Of course, sometimes mothers cannot breastfeed, due to medical problems or other special circumstances. Discuss with your paediatrician how best to feed your baby. No matter what you decide, always be sure to hold him while feeding. The cuddling that comes with nursing and feeding helps to build a strong, loving bond between you and your baby. Invite your partner to participate: feeding time is a great opportunity for your baby and partner to feel close.
