About the Infant Feeding programme

The e-learning programme has been produced by the Yorkshire and Humber group of the National Infant Feeding Network (NIFN).

The programme is for healthcare professionals who have contact with pregnant women and new mothers. It aims to provide information about the importance of building close and loving relationships with baby during pregnancy and following birth, as well as information around breast and bottle feeding. This programme isn’t intended to replace existing training. Instead it is intended to complement training for those in facilities which are implementing Baby Friendly standards.
