If your baby is HIV positive, the health professionals will put your baby onto antiretroviral medication. Whether your baby is EXCLUSIVELY breastfed or EXCLUSIVELY formula fed, they can be given prescribed medication. It is very important that you give this medication (and there may be more than one) exactly as directed and at the correct times each day. The dosage will depend on your baby’s age or weight and the health worker must show you exactly how to measure it out and how to give it. As your baby grows, the dosage will change. You must not miss a dose, so make sure you always have a supply of medication, that you store it correctly and that you have it with you if you go away. If someone else is to care for your child, they must be shown exactly how and when to give the medication. This is called ADHERENCE. Mums, or anyone else, on treatment also need to practice adherence very carefully.
