The Unicef UK Baby Friendly Initiative has received a number of queries regarding best practice for infant feeding during the Covid-19 outbreak. They suggest 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.
The Unicef statement includes:
- Public Health England (PHE) guidance – If you are breastfeeding while infected
- Accessing infant formula – information from First Steps Nutrition Trust
