The healthy child service provides ongoing support for infant feeding (breastfeeding, bottle feeding expressed breastmilk or formula or a combination of these options) via your health visitor.
During this pandemic drop in clinics are currently suspended but you can still contact your health visitor or the duty health visitor for advice and support.
We are also providing infant feeding support via secure video call for parents needing one to one additional feeding advice. This is a weekly clinic and appointments can be booked by contacting your health visitor or the duty health visitor.
Below are some useful links for evidence based information on infant feeding in addition to the NHS website:
