Nestlé Baby & me is committed to nurturing healthier generations through early nutrition education and support.
Our humble beginnings
In 1867, Henri Nestlé developed a milk-based food for babies unable to feed from their mothers. Within five years, Nestlé Milk was being sold around the world as a food for babies. Rapid development followed and Nestlé soon diversified into other areas with the introduction of a condensed milk product, followed by a move into the growing chocolate industry.
Although Henri bowed out of the Company in 1875, the name was retained and in 1905 it merged with the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company to form a dynamic new venture known simply as Nestlé. We have since then continued to develop through product innovation and acquisitions.
We believe nutrition is more than just you and your baby’s dietary habits. It is about nurturing healthier generations through the right early nutrition from pregnancy and beyond.
With over 150-year history of continuous research and innovation, Nestlé has teamed up with nutritional experts, researchers and healthcare professionals to provide parents with parenting and nutrition information they can trust.

Nestlé Baby & me is continually looking at new ways to support parents and caregivers, finding solutions and providing evidence-based information on nutrition.

We believe that breastfeeding is the ideal nutritional start for babies.
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. A decision not to breastfeed, 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 may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, including the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.
We recognise that breastfeeding is not always an option for some parents. No matter your feeding choice, Nestlé Baby & me is here to share the latest information to help you feel supported and confident on your parenthood journey.
As every child’s development is different, be sure to consult with your health care professional for individual advice about feeding your baby.
