Motherhood comes with a mixed bag of emotions, right from the feeling of excitement to the fear of doing the right thing and some new challenges every single day!
Since your baby is completely dependent on you, it becomes more difficult and pressurizing on the part of the mother to fulfill all the needs of the baby. Feeding a baby is one of the most important tasks that need the most attention.
According to WHO, the nutrition during the first years of life are crucial for the life-long health of the baby. That's why doctors also recommend the policy of exclusive breastfeeding for at least initial six months.
