Feeding your baby
Whether you decide to breastfeed or formula feed (or a bit of both), we have advice and tips to support you.
It can take time to feel confident about feeding your baby, but there is lots of help available.
Breastfeeding your baby
If you're breastfeeding, try to let your baby feed as much as they want to. This could be every hour, day and night.
As your baby grows, they'll settle into a pattern and feed for longer and less often.
Have a look at our breastfeeding guide for advice and tips on how to breastfeed, good attachment, burping your baby, and coping with common breastfeeding issues like reflux, colic and sore nipples.
Bottle feeding your baby
You may decide to bottle feed your baby with expressed breast milk or infant formula (or a combination of both).
Have a look at our bottle feeding guide for practical information on the things you'll need to buy, sterilising the bottles, how to make up formula feeds, burping your baby and lots more.
