Breast Feeding Support

The Centre employs 6 members of staff, all of whom have received breast feeding support training via the Unicef Baby Friendly Initiative.  We were also very proud to recently receive our BFI Accreditation confirmation. Therefore, whenever you visit one of our sites you can be confident that there will be someone who can help should you need reassurance or support during the early days of breast feeding your baby.

Additionally we work in partnership with Baby Café:

What is Baby Café?

The Tandridge Baby Café is situated at Caterham Children's Centre Naffi site (above Little Treasures Day Nursery, Western Road, Caterham-on-the-Hill) and runs every Thursday morning, 10.00 - 12.00 noon.  There is usually plenty of parking and there is a lift (should you find this easier than the stairs) to the first floor venue

The Baby Café charity coordinates a network of breastfeeding drop-in centres and other services to support breastfeeding mothers across the UK and other parts of the world.

  • No appointment needed.
  • All pregnant or breastfeeding mums are welcome to drop in at any time during opening hours. You can bring your partner too.
  • Baby Café drop-in centres are generally open once a week and set out with coffee tables, comfy sofas and play areas for accompanying toddlers. Locations vary from church halls and community room to children’s centres.
  • Run by trained staff.

Baby Café drop-ins are run by health professionals such as midwives, health visitors, or lactation consultants. Baby Café Local drop-ins may be run by healthcare practitioners (e.g. healthcare assistant, nursery nurse or maternity support worker) or breastfeeding counsellors from the voluntary breastfeeding organisations.

Help is available on all aspects of breastfeeding and its impact on daily life – from starting to stopping and all the variations in between.

In a relaxed, informal atmosphere you can:

  • Chat to other mums and build your confidence.
  • Get one-to-one help from specially trained staff
  • Look at books, leaflets and DVDs
  • And enjoy some tasty refreshments
