FAQs

Experts favour breastfeeding as you will pass on nutrients to your baby, giving them more protection against infections, allergies and certain conditions.

 

However, breastfeeding isn’t possible for everyone, and formula feeding is still a great, healthy alternative to give your baby the nutrients they need to grow and develop as they should.

Yes, it is possible to catch thrush from your baby while breastfeeding.

 

If your baby has oral thrush then the regular contact between yourself and your baby means that you could also develop a yeast infection in your breasts or nipples.

 

This is why your doctor may also want to test your breasts for thrush if your infant has a yeast infection in their mouth.

 

It’s not unusual for both a breastfeeding mother and their baby to have thrush at the same time.

It’s recommended that you exclusively breastfeed your baby until they’re around six months old.

 

From six months, you can continue to breastfeed your baby alongside solid foods for as long as you like.

While breastfeeding is the most beneficial option for your baby, a combination of formula and breastmilk is a safe option too.

 

You may wish to combine breastfeeding with formula if you:

 

  • - Are breastfeeding and want to use a bottle to offer your baby some expressed breast milk
  • - Want to breastfeed for some of your baby's feeds, but give bottles of formula for 1 or more feeds
  • - Are bottle feeding your baby and want to start breastfeeding
  • - Need to leave your baby and want to make sure they have some milk while you're away
