Breastmilk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.​

When your child reaches the 24th month

What your toddler learns

Your toddler has developed well mentally. It has also learnt to establish relationships, with its memory increasing. You will start to realize that its voice and hearing are now better developed. Simple children songs are also memorized easily at this stage. Your toddler can also better master its daily routines like brushing the teeth and washing its hands now.

What your toddler needs

A brain research has shown that at this time, your toddler will be incredibly receptive towards many things around it. For example, it can easily learn a second language at its second year and since most parents are afraid to miss this golden period, they have been teaching their children to learn more at this time. However, the question would be, how useful will it be? Ask yourself, what do you want to provide your child? Calculation skills? Foreign languages? Or the ability to be optimistic about the future to cope with the demands of life or people and to stand up for their own opinion, so to be confident and courageous.
