Breastfeeding - Give Your Child a Headstart - What it is

Breastfeeding Your Baby

Congratulations on welcoming your baby!

One of the biggest decisions that new parents make is whether to breastfeed or formula feed their baby. At KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, we recommend breastfeeding as the best choice for babies. We are Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) certified. This means that we are committed to make caring for you and your baby more complete by helping new mothers achieve breastfeeding success.

Breastfeeding puts a baby on the right start to life. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of a baby's life as it provides all the energy and nutrients needed for optimal growth, development and protection against infectious and chronic diseases.

Breastfeeding is an acquired skill, which requires counselling, consultation and support to mothers. We also understand that every baby is different and so would every breastfeeding experience. To guide you in your breastfeeding journey, please download or view this guide - Breastfeed Your Baby - Give Your Child a Headstart.
