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, try adding more fatty fish to your diet such as salmon or Atlantic mackerel or eating foods like DHA-enriched eggs. You might also talk to your doctor about a DHA supplement.
If you're using formula, consider DHA-enriched nutrition.
DHA-enriched infant formulas are an easy way to give your baby DHA. In fact, 9 out of 10 doctors prefer formulas with DHA as a practical way to support normal brain development during the first year of life.
