Infant Feeding in the Context of HIV/AIDS

Infant Feeding from 6-12 Months

  • At six months, if replacement feeding is still not Acceptable, Feasible, Affordable, Sustainable and Safe, continuation of breastfeeding with additional complementary foods is recommended, while the mother and baby continue to be regularly assessed. All breastfeeding should stop once a nutritionally adequate and safe diet without breast milk can be provided. (Consensus Statement IATT on Prevention of HIV Infections).
     
  • The weaning process should be carried out over a period of few days to minimize the mixed feeding period as much as possible. The baby should be introduced to cup-feeding before being introduced to other foods. Before weaning, mothers should be assisted on how to cup-feed the baby, preparing nutritious complementary feeding and how to stop lactation.
     
  • HIV exposed children that are shifted at six months from exclusive breastfeeding to cow's milk should be regularly screened for anaemia using pallor and provided with iron supplementation if required. Ideally, they should receive a multivitamin supplement syrup once a day.
