Until what age should you breastfeed your baby?

The question in the headline is of concern to parents around the world. There are different, often polar points of view. Some say that it is necessary to introduce a variety of complementary foods as soon as possible, others say that it is advisable to breastfeed for up to 1 year, others say that even a child of 6-7 years old is allowed to breastfeed, if possible. Modern science does not give an unequivocal answer to this question, research continues. However, in general, today the point of view dominates, according to which it is better to feed the child with breast milk for as long as possible, taking into account the interests of the child and the mother. In any case, for babies up to 6 months, breast milk is practically the best food without any alternative, and WHO insists on this. Up to 12 months it is highly desirable to feed the baby with breastmilk. After is the choice of parents, but in any case, mother’s milk will not harm the child.

One should take into account that the choice of feeding scheme is influenced by many factors. It is impossible to say categorically: “it is necessary to do like this”, because in every family, every child has his own circumstances. For example, there are children who do not perceive lactose. They require a lactose-free diet, but breast milk cannot be. There are even more common situations when breast milk is not enough or absend at all. Finally, the child may not have a mother. In such and many other similar situations, one has to use milk substitutes – infant formula.
You should not choose the infant milk brands yourself, but after consulting with a pediatrician. He will professionally assess the circumstances of a particular child and help you choose the best option.

In general, we can say that the best baby formulas for children are those whose composition is as close as possible to the composition of breast milk. These formula milk brands include, in particular, the products of the Solbritt plant, manufactured under the brand name Nuppi. Certified raw materials, modern equipment from Europe, a multi-stage quality control system and adherence to world quality standards make these newborn milk powders a worthy choice even for the most demanding consumers. The Solbritt factory is located in the EU – in Estonia. Its products are sold all over the world and certified for different regions. Therefore, we can say with confidence: if for some reason breastfeeding a child is impossible or insufficient, Nuppi infant formulas will ensure the full development of the baby. They can also be used to feed babies over 6 months old.
