Baby Feeding during the coronavirus pandemic

Baby feeding expert, Shel Banks, has made a short video to reassure new mums and mums-to-be about baby feeding during this coronavirus pandemic.

Shel, who works at Blackpool Victoria Hospital for the Lancashire and South Cumbria Infant Feeding Network, has put together some advice slides for parents to help them through the current outbreak.

In the video, Shel talks about mothers’ first milk, skin-to-skin benefits and breastfeeding. She also gives advice about Formula feeding, weight gain and infant feeding support for those in isolation.
