The first 1001 days (up to when your child is two and a half years old), plays a critical role in how your baby develops for their entire life. Breastfeeding is the healthiest way to feed a baby. It is the only food designed to meet all baby's needs, both nutritionally and emotionally. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for at least 6 months until solids are introduced with breastfeeding continuing for a minimum of 2 years.

We will support you to continue your breastfeeding journey for as long as you want to continue. No matter how you decide to feed your baby, your choice will be respected, and you will be supported by trained and caring professionals.
