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.
