Formula Feeding Support

Porcupine Health Unit

For a variety of different reasons, families choose, or may have to, formula feed their baby. 

Formula feeding requires knowledge and skills. It is important to properly sterilize equipment, and know how to safely prepare and store formula. It is also important to understand different types of formula available. Did you know that there are ways to feed your baby that will help reduce the risks associated with formula?  

Your infant feeding goals are important to us! A trained Registered Nurse is available to provide one-on-one formula feeding support. Support may be provided over the telephone or in person at a home visit. We want all babies to be as healthy as possible! Call us today at (705) 362-4854, and we will be happy to discuss your infant feeding plans.
