Alternate Feeding Methods

There are a number of ways babies can receive expressed breastmilk or infant formula if required. 

Using a cup, spoon, syringe or tube can be used instead of bottle feeding, which can negatively affect breastfeeding. Ideally, these methods would only be needed for a short amount of time and breastfeeding can be resumed.

For more information on alternate feeding methods, contact the Health Unit toll-free at 1-866-888-4577 and speak with a Family Health nurse.
