Breastfeeding

Mums can breastfeed everywhere in the Dudley borough. Whether it’s in the town centre, enjoying the sunshine in the park, waiting to pick up the little ones at the school gate, at the shops, or just simply waiting for a bus, breastfeeding is a completely natural thing to do.

Breastfeeding is the healthiest way to feed your baby. If possible, giving your baby breast milk only is recommended for the first six months of your baby’s life.

Introducing solid foods

Introducing your baby to solid foods, often called weaning on to foods, should start when your baby is around six months old.
