Infant feeding Team

In the Infant Feeding Team we support all mothers, babies and their families who use the services of Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Trust in their infant feeding choices. 

We look to achieve the best possible outcomes for overall health and wellbeing of your baby by building close and loving relationships and helping you achieve optimal responsive baby feeding.

The Infant Feeding Team aim to:

  • Help parents and carers with making informed decisions on feeding their babies, supporting them to achieve their feeding goals.
  • Provide care which is mother/carer and family centred, non-judgemental and supports and respects individuals decisions.
  • Be committed to providing clear and impartial information which adheres to the WHO Code of Marketing Breast Milk Substitutes (WHO 1991).
