The National Infant Feeding Network (NIFN) is a network of 600 infant feeding specialists responsible for the education and support of 70,000 health professionals across England, who in turn are responsible for caring for over 650,000 mothers and babies every year.
The network shares and promotes evidence-based practice around infant feeding and very early childhood development to deliver optimum health and wellbeing outcomes for mothers and babies (and their families).
Effective communication across the networks is co-ordinated by nine local leads who provide representation of their member’s views at national strategic level. For more information on your local network, contact details and news of upcoming meetings, you can visit the NIFN section of our website. Our mapping document outlines how the NIFN groups match up to the NHS regional teams.
