Feeding Your Baby

This page gives advice on feeding your baby. 

Feeding your baby is also about nurturing and bonding. The information is mainly about breastfeeding but if you are planning to bottle feed, you may find some of the information below useful too.  You might even want to give breastfeeding a go!

The information leaflet, Guide to Bottle Feeding, tells you how to make up a feed correctly, this is very important to make sure your baby gets the right nutrition s/he needs and to make sure they don't pick up any germs which could give your baby gastroenteritis.  

You might like to look at the NCT page on bottle feeding for more information: Bottle feeding your baby.
