Welcome to Me and My Child

Welcome to Me and My Child where you’ll find lots of information on the wonderful journey of parenthood, from pregnancy, to birth and your child’s early development. Every child’s development is different, so be sure to consult with your health care professional if you have any concerns.

You’ll also find plenty of information about what you can feed your child.

When it comes to babies, Breastfeeding is best, and provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness. During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. Infant formula is intended to replace breast-milk when mothers do not breastfeed. A decision not to breast-feed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, could reduce the supply of breast-milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use, such as the use of unboiled water, unboiled bottles or incorrect dilution may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, such as the preparation requirements and the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.

This website mentions food, toddler milks and sometimes infant formula.

I Understand

Weeks 32-35

32 Weeks Pregnant

You can now see nails and hair on your baby.

Your baby now has toenails, fingernails and a hint of real hair. The skin is softer and smoother and more baby-like. You will gain a little less than half a kilogram every week now – half of this weight goes to your baby, who will gain a third to a half the birth weight in the coming seven weeks. All the fat that your baby accumulates now will go into protecting it, helping it survive after birth.


33 Weeks Pregnant

Not long now until you cuddle your baby.

A healthy baby growing normally should now weigh over 2 kilograms and a measure a little more than 48 centimetres. Your baby’s skin becomes smoother and the bones harden. The skull, however, remains a little soft to ensure a smooth passage through the birth canal. This becomes possible only because the individual pieces making up the skull have not fused together yet and they can slightly overlap during delivery.


34 Weeks Pregnant

You’ve reached a crucial milestone.

Your baby should now cross the two kilogram mark and should be almost 50 centimetres long. Fat deposits make it look chubbier and rounder. The lungs and the central nervous system are continuously maturing. A baby born after the 34th week would normally do well in life and, with proper nutritional support, can even attain catch-up growth.


35 Weeks Pregnant

Your baby is now snugly inside you.

Your baby’s physical growth is almost complete. Although it may still kick you, it’s now snug inside your womb and probably won’t move around and somersault so much. Weighing about 2.5 kilograms and measuring around 50 centimetres, its physical growth is almost complete. Organs, such as the kidney and liver, are fully developed and can function normally. Your baby will spend the next few weeks gaining weight rapidly.
