Breastmilk (or an appropriate first infant formula) is the only food a baby needs in the first 6 months of life. This has been the recommendation from all UK health departments for the past 13 years. This is not just a UK recommendation, it is global – and most countries now recognise the importance of exclusive breastfeeding, and of waiting for babies to be ready for solids

How much milk do infants need

How much milk do infants need?


One of the joys of breastfeeding is knowing that your baby will always take the amount of milk they need, and you don’t need to know how much that is. As long as baby is growing well and producing the amount of wet nappies you would expect, you can trust the breastfeeding supply and demand system to do its work. If babies are not breastfed then we have guidance on the approximate amounts of milk babies may need – but of course responsive feeding is important for all babies, so this is just a guide based on average babies.
