Healthy infant feeding

Solent NHS has produced a Healthy Infant Feeding Booklet that has been written for you following discussions with local parents. It contains information they said would help support them with their decisions about feeding their babies.  Parenting is tough with lots of outside influences, pressures and advice and it can be hard to have the confidence that what you are doing is best for your baby. Whether you choose to breast, bottle or mixed feed, becoming overweight is your baby’s biggest health risk although, importantly, breastfeeding can help prevent later weight problems and is definitely healthiest. All parents want their baby to grow up healthy and happy. We hope reading this booklet, even before your baby is born, will provide more tips and facts about feeding so that you can give your baby the best start in life.
