MOTHERS AND THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION
Nestlé S.A. endorses and complies with both the letter and the spirit of the World Health Organization (WHO) International Code of Marketing of Breast-Milk Substitutes in developing countries, including standards for product integrity, labelling, distribution and promotion. In accordance with Article 4.2 of the WHO Code, the following statement applies:
Breastfeeding provides the best nutrition and protection from illness for your baby. For most infants, breastmilk is all that is needed for the first 4 to 6 months. Many mothers continue to breastfeed after 6 months and then give other foods as well. For advice on breastfeeding, consult your doctor or any other health professional, or a friend or relative who has successfully breastfed. Frequent feeding is the best way to establish and maintain a good supply of milk. A well balanced diet, both during pregnancy and after delivery, also helps sustain an adequate supply of breastmilk.
Advice especially for the working mothers
Your baby can still receive the benefits of breastmilk even if you go out to work. Partial breastfeeding is better than bottle feeding completely, so continue to breastfeed even if you have been advised to give other foods. Before you leave home in the morning and again when you return, breastfeed your baby. When mixed feeding, always offer the breast before giving other foods. Remember: Breastmilk is the best and most economical food for your baby.
The use of foods which are not intended for young babies can be harmful. Unnecessary introduction of partial bottle feeding or other foods and drinks will have a negative effect on breastfeeding. Therefore always consult a health professional before introducing anything other than breastmilk.
Using a breastmilk substitute
If a doctor or other health professional recommends an addition to breastfeeding, or its replacement, during the first 4 to 6 months, it is preferable to use an infant formula meeting recognised quality standards. When used correctly this supplies the nutritional needs of your baby in an easily digestible form. You will need more than one can (450g) per week if your baby is only bottle fed, so keep your family circumstances and costs in mind before deciding whether to use infant formula.
