Infant Feeding

Health Visitors can support you with information and guidance to make ongoing choices about how to feed your baby.

Breast milk is the bespoke food for a human baby. Breastfeeding ensures all the baby’s nutrient needs are met, encourages development, protects the baby’s and mother’s health in the short and long term, and supports a close and loving bond to develop between mother and child.
