Congratulations! You’re the proud (and nervous) parent of the world’s most beautiful baby! Giving your baby love and nurturing comes so naturally to you. So does showing him or her off to your family, friends, and even perfect strangers! But when it comes to feeding, you may feel a little unsure of what to do. Here are some guidelines.

Breast milk is the only food recommended for the first 6 months of life. If you cannot breastfeed or express milk, your infant should be fed iron-fortified formula.
