About the Infant Feeding programme

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

The programme is for healthcare professionals and other practitioners who have contact with expectant and new parents. 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 is not intended to replace in-person training, rather to act as an introduction or refresher to complement existing training programmes. It is suitable for those in facilities which are implementing the Baby Friendly Initiative (BFI) standards.
