Breastfeeding is the best option for feeding a baby in the first months of life. Breastmilk contains all the necessary substances and vitamins, which help to develop and grow.

A unified opinion about the timing of the introduction of the first complementary foods during breastfeeding in the diet of the baby is not. Some argue that when breastfeeding it should be done from 4-5 months, others say that it is not necessary to introduce lure before half a year.
