Feeding Your Baby

Happy baby

In this section you will find everything you need to know about feeding your baby.

Once you have your baby, our dedicated team of midwives and infant feeding advisors will provide you with one to one support to help you feed your baby. It can take a while before you feel confident, especially if you are breastfeeding, but help is available from your midwife, health visitor or local breastfeeding support group.

Find out more about breastfeeding, bottle feeding and introducing solid foods (weaning).

You can find more information on the NHS Choices website.
