Breast milk is simply the best source of nutrients for babies. The Ministry of Health Malaysia, or Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM), recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Note that early introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks may have an impact on the quality of breastfeeding.
Typically, after six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Seek pediatric advice to know when your baby is ready for her first weaning, usually when she has reached some key developmental markers. This can be as early as 4 months of age.
PipiPau fully recognizes breast milk’s primacy, value and superiority and supports exclusive breastfeeding as recommended by the KKM.
