Support provided by Children’s Centre sessions in Salford
Salford family hubs in Broughton, Swinton, Winton and Little Hulton are now back open running face to face baby social sessions with an infant feeding champion available for feeding support. Some previous Children’s centre sessions are no longer running due to Covid-19.
Baby Socials are sessions for babies non mobile aged from birth to twelve months. Each week we will introduce you to one of our five to thrive key messages and a fun activity you can do at home with your baby. It will also give you the opportunity to connect with other parents and share your experiences. Infant Feeding Champions will also be available to support you with your babies feeding journey and answer any questions you may have.
