Formula Feeding

We fully support the WHO, UNICEF and NHS guidance on the benefits of breastfeeding, but recognise that some mums may choose to give formula feeds to their babies.

Infant formula is available in two forms:

  • Ready-to-feed liquid infant formula, sold in cartons, which is sterile
  • Powdered infant formula, which is not sterile.

The Department of Health and the Food Standards Agency have produced the following booklet which will help you bottle feed your baby safely.
