Bottle-feeding help for new mums at York Hospital
8:38am Wednesday 9th May 2012 in News
New mums who want to bottle-feed their babies can now get extra support from maternity staff at York Hospital.
A new infant-feeding room has opened on the unit where new parents are given specialist advice and guidance so they feel ready and confident to safely feed their baby on formula milk.
Morag White, infant feeding co-ordinator, said: “All women who come into the unit are given information regarding the health benefits of breast-feeding, however we do know that around a quarter of women choose to bottle-feed. It’s important that these parents are given the right information to enable them to feed their babies.”
