Infants should be exclusively breastfed - i.e. receive only breastmilk - for the first six months of life to achieve optimal growth, development and health. "Exclusive breastfeeding" is defined as giving no other food or drink - not even water - except breastmilk. It does, however, allow the infant to receive oral rehydration salts (ORS), drops and syrups (vitamins, minerals and medicines). Breastmilk is the ideal food for the healthy growth and development of infants. If this is not an option Unimilk provides a great alternative.
