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.

We are gradually resuming in-person services at HPEPH by appointment only at this time.  Please review our Service Interruptions page for more information.

All program lines and the COVID-19 information line operate Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm (excluding statutory holidays).

To assist us with our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, we ask anyone visiting the office for an appointment to:

  • bring a non-medical mask, physical distancing may not be possible during your appointment
  • maintain physical distance of at least 2 metres, both inside and outside the office
  • review symptoms of COVID-19, and reschedule your appointment if you have symptoms of the virus, or any other illness
  • reschedule your appointment if a family member or other close contact is ill
  • use accessible buttons to open doors, instead of handles
  • use hand sanitizer when entering and exiting the building

We have made additional changes to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you are visiting our office for an appointment, you can be confident that we are:

  • increasing our cleaning, in alignment with heightened infection control protocols
  • considering alternatives to in-person appointments and meetings when possible
  • screening staff and visitors for symptoms of COVID-19
  • offering in-person services by appointment only to reduce traffic in office
  • ensuring staff wear masks and/or other protective equipment when seeing clients
