      Your baby's development, stage by stage

      Building a bond for the future

      Feeding is the ideal opportunity to bond with your baby, and provides the vital nutrition needed to support their future. As you spend time getting to know each other, you will notice many exciting changes in your baby’s development, from increased alertness to improving their grip and expressing their emerging personality.

      A growing appetite

      Milk has provided them with all the nutrition they need up until now. But your baby’s development will call for more than this over the coming months. As their eyesight improves, they learn to sit up, and their grip strengthens, they’ll require specific nutrients in their weaning diet to support their future health.

      Pump up their iron levels

      Your baby’s enquiring mind and increasing skill set require iron to support cognitive development, at this stage and in the future. As the natural stores of iron they were born with began to run low at 6 months, it is important to ensure that their weaning diet contains iron-rich foods and plenty of variety to nourish them through future stages of development.
