Support with feeding is offered by all members of the health visiting team at the new birth visit and any follow up contacts at home or in the child health clinic.

Health visitors, community nurses and nursery nurses undertake the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative Breastfeeding training and can provide mothers and families with information and practical support to help you achieve your breastfeeding goals. How you feed your baby is a personal choice and we are here to support you and your baby with whatever feeding choices you make and at any stage. This includes providing support and information about breastfeeding, mixed feeding, formula feeding and introducing solids at 6 months.

Specialist breastfeeding support is offered by appointment in children's centres and run by a member of the health visiting team who has had additional experience and breastfeeding training. If you have any questions or concerns about feeding your baby please contact your health visiting team directly or call 0208 200 2500 (option 2).
