Feeding your baby

The Rosie is committed to encouraging mums to breastfeed their babies and we would like you to be successful with this. View breastfeeding drop-in clinics here.

Breastfeeding drop-in clinics

We believe that breastfeeding is the most natural way to feed your baby, and we recognise the important benefits that breastfeeding provides for both you and your child. Our staff will offer support and guidance in the early days. Ask your midwife about the information and support available, and our parent education classes.

If you have made an informed decision to formula feed your baby, you will be given the appropriate care and support, but the hospital does not provide formula milk, unless your baby requires it for medical reasons. In all other cases, you are expected to provide formula milk yourself.
