Solid Foods Workshops

Child face on blondeOur Solid Foods Workshops cover topics such as when to start weaning, purees and baby-led weaning, and which foods to avoid.


Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding gives your baby all the nutrients he or she needs for the first six months of life and beyond. It helps to protect your baby from infection and other diseases and, as a mum, it helps to reduce your chances of illness later in life. Breastfeeding also helps you and your baby to get closer physically and emotionally – helping the bond between you to grow stronger.


Breast Feeding Support

Come and join our weekly breast feeding support group for expectant and breastfeeding mums in a warm and happy place! Professional help and support available every week during term-times. For more info https://www.nct.org.uk
