Feeding & Caring for Your Baby

Skin to Skin

Skin to skin contact helps your baby feel safe and secure.


Mum’s milk gives your baby all the nutrients they need for around the first six months of life (and it’s important beyond six months too).

Formula Feeding

If you have chosen to formula feed your baby we will help you to do this as safely as possible.

Weight Loss

It is normal for babies to lose weight in the first few days after birth.

Tongue Tie

This frenulum can sometimes be referred to as a tongue tie if it is tight and restricting the movement of the tongue.

Safe Sleeping & Caring for your Baby at Night

Newborn babies are often awake more at night; this is normal and helps to protect babies from cot death.
