  • Carbohydrates are indispensible for the nutrition of your child. Like human milk nepheaAS 12 Infant contains carbohydrates. 
  • Incorrect use of the bottle (frequent or continuous sucking) can result in tooth decay (caries) and related damages to health.
  • Thus a bottle feed should only last for the time required for the food intake.
