Statements on supporting infant feeding during the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak
The Unicef UK Baby Friendly Initiative has produced a series of statements on infant feeding, infant feeding on neonatal units and supporting Baby Friendly assessments during the Covid-19 outbreak. We recommend that all practitioners follow latest updates from the UK governments and the World Health Organization (WHO) as these could change as more information becomes available.
In partnership with First Steps Nutrition Trust and NIFN, we have also produced a guide for local authorities on infant feeding.
