​​​​​​​​​​​​Breastfeeding

Do you have breastfeeding questions, or need support?

We have nurses trained to help you.

  • Phone 519-753-4937 ext. 464 to speak with a nurse or have a nurse visit you at home​.

At BCHU, we promise to support you​​ as you feed your baby.  

Breastfeeding is the normal way to feed a baby. Breastmilk is all the food your baby needs for the first six months. At around six months, introduce iron-rich foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years and beyond.
