Infant to 9 month Child Health councicling :
Breastfeeding Beyond 6 Months :Internationally agreed recommendations for optimal feeding of infants and young children advocate exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life, followed by complementary feeding and continued breastfeeding for up to two years or beyond. From 6 months, infants need additional foods alongside continued breastfeeding. This is termed complementary feeding because the aim is to give other foods and drinks to ‘complement’, as in ‘make complete’, the nutrients provided by human milk. Appropriate CF is an advocacy issue because of lack of understanding and misinformation through the promotion of commercially produced follow-up and growing up milks.
