When it comes to babies, breastfeeding is nature's best resource and provides the optimal balance of nutrition created specifically for your little one. Breastmilk is amazing. Women are amazing (seriously, we carry children, we birth them, we feed them.....how incredible are our bodies!).
All formulas vary in taste so it can take time to comfortably transition to a new brand. A slow and gradual change between formula is recommended to help your baby adjust to the new taste and smell and avoid refusal or change to feeding routine.
But first, a trigger warning. It’s industry regulation in Australia to present the following information about breastfeeding before you can enter our site. The following statements can have the potential to cause emotional distress for some parents, so it’s important to us at mumamoo to reiterate that this is an operational requirement. We know you are doing the best you can and are making decisions that are right for you and your baby.
If you are able, breastfeeding provides the optimal balance of nutrition for your baby. A healthy diet is important during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. If you make the decision not to breastfeed, we recommend you seek advice from your GP or health professional. Should you need an alternative form of nourishment to breastmilk, we recommend considering the social and financial implications. Introducing formula feeding can impact your breastmilk supply and is difficult to re-establish. Should you decide to use a breastmilk alternative, please take care to use the formula as directed.
We support your choices and your feeding journey - whatever that may be. We understand breastfeeding isn’t always possible, so please click I AGREE to confirm your understanding that mumamoo is supplying the information contained on this website for informational or educational purposes and should not be substituted for medical advice.
You’re doing an amazing job.
Love, team mumamoo x
