Breastfeeding or formula
Whether you will breastfeed your child or give it formula is a very personal choice that you have to make alongside your partner.
We know that breastfeeding provides your child with the most natural food. Because it contains valuable nutrients and antibodies that children need for their growth, development and health, breastfeeding is the preferred option. Breastmilk cannot be reproduced. When you can’t or don’t want to breastfeed, we can advise you about different formula products.
If you are going to breastfeed, it is important to prepare yourself for this. Also involve your partner in this, because it is known that good support from your environment is the most important factor in successfully breastfeeding. You can go to an information evening, for addresses look at 'usefull links'. For more information you can always ask us or come to our lactation consultant office hour (every first Tuesday of the month).
After the delivery and during the postpartum period the maternity assistant and us will help you with the breastfeeding. After the postpartum period you can direct your questions to the consultationbureau or a lactation consultant.
