Feeding Your Baby
Feeding Your Baby

One of the most enjoyable parts of parenthood is feeding your baby. It's a time of bonding that nourishes the soul as well as the body. This early contact develops trust and is very important to your baby's sense of well-being.

Women & Infants Hospital supports breastfeeding because of the many health benefits it provides for both mother and baby. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding exclusively for the first six months. After the introduction of solid food, breastfeeding is recommended until the child is 12 months of age and may continue as long as both mother and baby desire. However, any time spent breastfeeding will benefit your baby.

Our goal is to assist all mothers and babies to feed in a comfortable and healthy way.  We support women in meeting their goals for successful breastfeeding.  We also assist women choosing to formula feed by providing safe formula preparation and bottle feeding information.
