Infant Feeding Classes

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.

If you are interested in attending, please review our 2020 Infant Feeding Class Schedule or check out the list of upcoming classes below and complete our online Infant Feeding Class registration.

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

Alerts:

1) Our offices are temporarily closed to the public to allow us to respond to COVID-19 demands. Phone lines remain open. Phone line hours over the long weekend (April 10 to April 13) are 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

2) Returning travellers must self-isolate for 14 days and contact Public Health if symptoms of COVID-19 develop.

If you have returned from travel anywhere outside of Canada, you must self-isolate for 14 days and immediately contact Public Health or your local health care provider if you develop symptoms of COVID-19. Earlier this month all travellers were asked to self-isolated when they returned to Canada. Effective March 25, the federal government made this isolation mandatory under the Quarantine Act to better protect our most vulnerable citizens. Each of us must make the responsible decision to follow the advice of health authorities. It’s in everyone’s best interest to do everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19.
