Baby's Development

At 9 months, your baby should be about 18 inches long and weighs about 2.5kg.

Your baby now has control of many body movements, and you will be able to feel your baby's many movements and even the vibration caused by his hiccups. His organ system is now fully developed. He can now blink, with eyelashes fully grown and may have a full head of hair. Nails have grown on his fingers and toes too.

Tips for Mum

Be wary of varicose veins

Don't stand too long if you suffer from leg cramps and varicose veins (enlarged and swollen veins). If a varicose vein ruptures, it will cause heavy bleeding. You can wear tight clothing and tube socks to protect affected areas, and place a cushion under your legs while you sleep to raise them slightly.

Bond with your little one

Since your baby has developed his hearing at this point, you can start talking to him or singing to him. Keep count of your baby's movements, and try stroking your belly while lying on the bed, just to feel the movements. This can be the start of a beautiful relationship between just the two of you.

Reduce or stop consuming caffeinated and alcoholic drinks as they are known to cause miscarriages and damage the foetal brain.

Cook all foods thoroughly to avoid bacterial contamination. That means raw fish or meat is strictly off limits.


You need 1000 - 1200 milligrams (mg) of calcium a day to build your baby's bones and teeth; a healthy heart, muscles and nerves. Top sources of calcium-rich foods include milk and dairy products. However, stay away from unpasteurised milk and dairy products as they may contain bacteria that can harm your child. You may also boost your intake with calcium tablets.


You need 27 milligrams (mg) of iron a day to make more haemoglobin (red blood cells) and placenta growth. Fish and meats such as chicken and lean beef contain large amounts of iron. Non-meat products that are rich in iron are beans, vegetables and grains. However, avoid liver products as they contain high amount of Vitamin A, which is harmful to the unborn child; and swordfish, marlin, shark and tuna as they are known to contain mercury.


You need 70 grams (g) of protein a day to develop your baby's body. Try beans, lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk and dairy products. However, avoid swordfish, marlin, shark and tuna as they are known to contain mercury.

Folic Acid (Folate)

You need 600 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid a day to reduce your baby's risk of neural tube defects such as spina bifida and other defects such as cleft lip, cleft palate and heart defects. Folic acid can be found in green vegetables like cabbage, beans and broccoli; and fruits such as bananas and oranges.

Vitamin B

Vitamin B reduces the risk of foetal deformities and congenital heart disease; develops brain and nervous system; and may relieve nausea. Essential Vitamin Bs include B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B6 (pyridoxine), and B12 (cobalamin). They can be found in fortified breads, cereal, whole grain products, beans and peas.

Your daily intake of Vitamin B is as follows:

Vitamin B1:1.4 milligrams (mg)

Vitamin B2:1.4mg

Vitamin B6:1.9mg

Vitamin B12:2.6 micrograms (mcg)

Vitamin C

You need 85 milligrams (mg) a day for tissue repair, bone growth and repair, and healthy skin. Citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges, and grapefruits; and vegetables such as broccoli and cabbages are excellent sources of Vitamin C.

Vitamin D

You need 200 IUs (5 micrograms) of Vitamin D to maintain optimum levels of calcium and phosphorus. Fish liver oil, fatty fish, eggs, milk and cereal products contain Vitamin D.


You need 450 milligrams (mg) of choline a day to boost your baby's brainpower and protect him against neural tube defects such as spina bifida. Choline can be found in spinach, poultry products, beans and fish. However, avoid swordfish, marlin, shark and tuna as they are known to contain mercury.

Compared to pregnant mums, lactating mums need extra energy and nutrition – preparing to breastfeed requires more calories, protein, and calcium, as well as most forms of vitamins and minerals.

Comparison of nutritional needs during pregnancy and lactation *
Nutrient Pregnancy** Lactation***
Energy +300 calories +500 calories
Protein +15g +25g
Calcium +200mg +200mg
Iron +4mg +4mg
Folic Acid +200mcg +150mcg
Vitamin A +70mcg +600mcg
Vitamin C +15mg +50mg
Vitamin B12 +0.5mcg +0.8mcg
Selenium +5mcg +18mcg

*Compared to Chinese DRIs of adult women with an estimated energy requirement of 1800kcal/d

**Chinese DRIs of pregnant women in the second trimester

***Chinese DRIs of lactating mums

Lactating mums also need to make sure their diets include enough nutrition and water while they are breastfeeding. Since their breast milk provides the main source of nutrients for infants as they grow, they especially need to consume sufficient amounts of high-quality protein, in addition to other nutrients that help produce breast milk.

Preparations for breastfeeding
Nutrient Sources in diet
Water Water, tea, juice, milk
High-quality protein Meat, dairy, eggs
Folic acid Dark green vegetables
Iron Dark meat, dried beans
Zinc Beef, pork, shrimp, shellfish
Selenium Garlic, bean sprouts
Calcium Fresh milk & dairy products
Vitamin D Fresh milk & dairy products
Vitamin A Red & orange produce, liver

Besides consuming the right amount of nutrients to support breastfeeding, the following list of Dos and Don'ts can help lactating mums better prepare and pave the way for their baby's healthy growth.

Dos & Don'ts for breastfeeding
Dos Don'ts
Drink 10-12 glasses of water a day Don't eat a lot of collagen-rich foods, such as fish maw and cow heels
Drink 3 glasses of milk a day Don't eat too many foods with strong flavours, such as onion and garlic, or spicy foods
Consume a sufficient amount of high-quality protein Don't consume too much caffeine
Eat foods rich in vitamin A/carotene Avoid "lactation suppression" foods such as chives, grapes and squabs
Follow a balanced diet, with sufficient intake of immunity-boosting nutrients such as zinc, selenium, nucleotide and GOS Avoid prematurely slimming down after giving birth

FRISOMUM GOLD Stage 0 contains balanced nutrition for breastfeeding mums, including nutrients that can be hard to fulfill from an everyday diet. Most mums become very busy taking care of their babies once they are born, so lactation formulas become a convenient way to meet the extra nutritional needs for breastfeeding.
