Formula Feeding Your Baby

While breastfeeding is recommended by Health Canada as the best choice for the first six months and up to 2 years and beyond, for some families, breastfeeding isn’t an option. If you are thinking of formula feeding your baby, it’s important to make an informed choice about what’s best for you and your baby. 

Timiskaming Health Unit public health nurses can answer any questions you may have and help you make the choice that works best for your family.
