Healthier Together

The resources on the Healthier Together have been developed in partnership between parents and NHS healthcare professionals. You’ll find clear information on common childhood illnesses, including advice on what ‘red-flag’ signs to look out for, where to seek help if required, what you should do to keep your child comfortable and how long your child’s symptoms are likely to last.

Better Health: 24/7 Breastfeeding Support

The best start for you and your baby

Breast milk provides all the nutrition your baby needs in their first 6 months and boosts their ability to fight illness and infection.

Breastfeeding is great for both you and your baby; it helps build a strong bond and is good for your baby’s overall health. But, as with anything new, it’s something you need to learn how to do and it’s normal to experience the odd set back.

Luckily, Start for Life is here to help.
