Protein is one of the basic building blocks for all cells and is the motor for healthy growth. In baby’s food, it delivers the building blocks for the muscles and altogether plays a decisive role in its development.
The quality and amount of protein in baby’s food are key

Your baby’s protein requirements change constantly over their first 1000 days of life. This is no surprise because in their first year of life, babies triple in weight and grow 2 cm a month.

Current studies suggest that protein in food must first be of high quality and second be available in the right quantities, enabling this rapid growth to take place appropriately and healthily. Breastfeeding is best for your baby. But when breastfeeding is not possible for whatever reason, there are now high quality infant formulas that guarantee healthy nutrition for infants who are not breastfed. If you feed your baby infant formula, you need to ensure that it contains the best protein, in a dosage which is appropriate to the baby’s needs.

Baby’s optimum development

Many parents question how many meals their baby really needs. A baby who is exclusively breastfed is getting enough milk if it regularly produces five to six wet nappies a day. As long as your child is well and thriving, there is no need to weigh them every day. Of course you should always take advantage of child health examinations so that the doctor can check your baby’s weight, etc.
5 practical tips for baby’s growth
•    Above all you will support your baby’s healthy development by making them feel safe and giving them lots of love and attention.
•    Breastfeeding is the best way to feed your baby, but breastfeeding is not always possible, for a variety of reasons. When you buy infant formula, you should pay particular attention to the level of protein it contains, and the quality of the protein in the product. Because even if you are bottle-feeding, high quality, appropriate amounts of protein will contribute to the healthy growth of your baby. Due to its very high protein content, cow’s milk should not be given as a drink, at least in the first year of life and preferably even longer.
•    As well as nutrition, physical movement plays an important role in weight development. Your baby is able to learn early on that physical movement is good for the body during baby swimming.
•    Equally, plenty of fresh air is also important for your baby’s healthy growth. Regularly go outside with your baby, even on cold days, and make sure that you dress your baby appropriately for the weather.
•    In the first months, your baby will constantly grow out of its baby clothes at an alarming rate. If you want to make a few savings here, explore flea markets and second-hand shops for nearly-new clothes.
•    It is highly important that you never miss any of your appointments for child healthcare check-ups with your pediatrician! In these appointments your baby’s health is checked very precisely to ensure that they are healthy and thriving.
