Breastfeeding is best for babies and will protect them from illnesses such as ear infections, stomach upsets, diabetes, eczema and obesity. Cow & Gate infant milks are intended to replace breastmilk when mothers cannot or choose not to breastfeed. Follow-on milk is only for babies over 6 months, as part of a mixed diet and should not be used as a breastmilk substitute before 6 months. It is recommended that all formula milks be used on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian, pharmacist or other professional responsible for maternal and child care.
