Infant feeding in Ealing

Read more about this page below

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

Ealing Early Start Team is working towards the next stage of Unicef Baby Friendly Initiative (BFI) accreditation, which means our staff are educated to Unicef standards, to provide you with evidence based advice about building close and loving relationship with your baby, breastfeeding, safe bottle feeding, and introducing solid foods.

The breast feeding support is available at a drop in group setting at various locations across Ealing, at our local Children Centres.

All clinics are walk-in so there is no need to make an appointment.

We also support parents who are formula feeding their babies by providing information on choosing milks and making up feeds, and helping them to feed safely and responsively.

We provide advice and support to all Ealing families in the antenatal period, following birth of a baby and for as long as they require infant feeding support including solid food introduction.

Your Health Visitor can refer you to a dedicated breastfeeding supporter who will visit you at home to help you get breastfeeding off to a good start or to help you to continue breastfeeding. If your baby is under 10 days of age please call our duty line or email duty desk (please see Contacting our team) to arrange breastfeeding support home visit. Otherwise your Health Visitor will contact you to arrange a home visit between day 10 and 14 after the birth of your baby and will refer you for a one to one support if required.

Your health visitor can refer you to a local infant feeding clinic.

You will also be provided with information on introducing solid food workshops.
