What is DHA?
DHA is a type of Omega-3 fat that helps nourish your baby's brain.
How do babies get DHA? Your baby gets DHA from the foods you eat while pregnant—as well as from your breast milk if you breast feed. But the amount of DHA your baby gets depends on how much is in your diet. To increase the amount of DHA your baby gets from your diet, try adding more fatty fish—such as salmon or Atlantic mackerel—or eating foods like DHA-enriched eggs. You might also want to talk to your doctor about a DHA supplement.
"If a mother is breastfeeding and chooses to use in addition an infant formula, I would recommend that she choose an infant formula containing DHA.
