About us

Who we are

The Breastfeeding Network (BfN) aims to be an independent source of support and information for breastfeeding women and others.

It aims to:

  • Promote breastfeeding and a greater understanding of breastfeeding in the United Kingdom.
  • Collect and disseminate information on breastfeeding and baby and infant nutrition.
  • Provide information and support to parents on the feeding of babies and infants.
  • Set and encourage the acceptance of quality standards for breastfeeding support.
  • Establish and publish codes of practice for such support.

We do not accept funding from sources which have a commercial interest in infant feeding.  For example, we will not accept sponsorship (funding or gifts) from manufacturers or distributors of breastmilk substitutes, feeding bottles, teats or dummies. We also do not accept sponsorship from those companies who profit from breastfeeding (success or failure) such as nipple creams, breast pumps, nursing bras, nipple shields etc. and those companies profiting from a particular parenting style. This enables women to feel confident that any information and support being given by a BfN Registered Volunteer is not biased in any way. We work within the scope of the World Health Organisation / UNICEF Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes and Subsequent relevant World Health Assembly Resolutions.
