Please note: The Baby Friendly Initiative has published new standards, which use new evidence and best practice to build on the existing standards. All assessments from 30 June 2014 onward will take place using these standards. Read the new standards to find out more.
If you are currently working towards Baby Friendly accreditation and wish to talk to a member of the Baby Friendly team about how the new standards may affect your planning, please contact a member of the team.
