Contamination may have occurred during birth or come from their environment.
A few simple hygiene rules can prevent any risk of contamination: before breastfeeding, carefully wash your breasts. If baby is using bottles, sterilise the equipment before they put it in their mouth. Also wash their dummy and toys, including their favourite cuddly toy, at a high temperature. After feeding, give them a little water to remove milk residues inside their mouth.

Breast milk is the ideal nutrition for your baby. It naturally contains everything your baby needs to grow.
