Feeding your baby in the first six months

In the early weeks following birth, your baby will spend most of their waking time feeding. Feeding regularly will help build a good milk supply, and keeping your baby close will help you create a strong loving bond. Responding to your baby is very important to help them feel safe, secure, and helps their growing brain develop.
