Infant Feeding Classes

Registration for Infant Feeding classes is closed at the moment due to the COVID-19 office closure.

For the first six months, breast milk is all your baby needs. To help prepare you and your baby for solid foods, our free Infant Feeding Class can answer your common questions. Class attendees will learn about the benefits of extended breastfeeding and when and how to introduce solids.

The ideal time to attend this class is when your baby is four to five months old.

You may bring your baby and other care providers with you. Each participant will receive a free “Feeding Your Baby from Six Months to One Year” booklet.

For more information, call 613-966-5500 or 1-800-267-2803, ext. 610.
