Feeding Your Baby Infant Formula (for full-term healthy babies up to 12 months of age).

 

Feeding your baby can be one of the most rewarding experiences of parenthood. Not only do you nourish your baby's body, you nourish your relationship with your baby.

 

This fact sheet is for parents and caregivers who have made the informed decision to provide formula to their full-term healthy baby. For premature, low birth weight and immunocompromised babies, talk to your baby's health care provider for guidance around feeding and formula preparation.
