Before you know it, your little one is rolling, baby babbling, smiling at you, and discovering something new about themselves every day. As the months go by, your baby will continue to change in ways you couldn’t imagine. You'll start understanding some of her sleeping patterns, whether swaddling helps, does she prefer a dummy or not...and so on and so forth.
While sleeping patterns may be unpredictable one thing is for certain, your tiny human needs to feed, starting off with milk and then progressing to solids. Current NHS guidelines recommend weaning onto solid foods commences from 6 months. From then you're about to embark on a journey thinking about what nutrients and vitamins she needs.
We're taking a look at what brand Piccolo has introduced in the shape of formula to help you decide your next steps when it comes to milk.
