Breast milk is the best way to feed a baby and is important for the baby's health and development. GMP Dairy is a member of the infant Nutrition Council and supports WHO's global public health code recommending breastfeeding. Professional advice should be followed before using infant formula as introducing partial bottle feeding could negatively affect breastfeeding. Good maternal nutrition is preferred for breast feeding and reversing a decision not to breast feed may be difficult. Infant formula should only be used as directed as proper use of an infant formula is important to the health of the infant. Social and finacial implications should also be considered when selecting a method of feeding.
