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.
