COVID-19 Infant Feeding Update – March 2020

Infant feeding leads and peer support co ordinators from across the Lancashire and South Cumbria area have brought this information together in March 2020 to support good decision making during the COVID-19 crisis.

We have provided information for formula feeding and breastfeeding support on separate pages, but of course it may be that as a family you need to access both.

Information on how to assess baby’s feeding and growth without access to weighing at Well Baby clinics, is also provided.

It has been agreed across Lancashire & South Cumbria that what have been known as ‘breastfeeding peer supporters’ will be offering support and information to ALL families about all things infant feeding in the immediate future, not only breastfeeding families requiring breastfeeding information.

There’s also a graphic for those who are expecting baby soon:
