NCT Courses and Covid-19

Until the end of February 2021 our courses are online. Currently, due to rising Covid-19 infection rates and official guidance for pregnant women, online is the only way we can safely and practically deliver local, fully interactive and inclusive courses – a decision supported by the Royal College of Midwives.

We know how much you value our in-person courses so we’re keeping our options open for courses from March 2021 onwards. Currently you can still book these as in-person classes but we’ll only bring people back together in venues once it is safe to do so. We’ll never put you, your baby or your family at risk.

To understand more about why we're delivering our courses online please read our course FAQs. Our website also has an up-to-date section on Covid-19 pregnancy and birth information.

Our Covid-19 Price Promise: If you book a course that is already being delivered online you’ll receive a 15% discount at the time of booking. If you book a course that is currently offered as in-person, we’ll give you back 15% of your course fee if we need to move it online to ensure your safety.

Introducing your baby to solid foods can be a very exciting time but you'll also probably have lots of questions. Our online workshops are interactive and tailored to you. We'll help you decide when the time is right, how you want to go about it and what to expect.

Introducing solid foods

Moving on to solid foods is a big moment in your baby’s development. But with so much advice and so many methods out there, it can be tricky to know how to go about it. 

Our Introducing Solids Foods online workshops are interactive to give you all the information you need to make  decisions that work for you. We make sure every parent comes away from our workshops feeling confident about feeding their baby.

What you’ll learn 

Baby eating

When to move onto solid foods

Experts recommend waiting six months to give your baby solid foods. We’ll discuss the evidence around this with you, how to spot signs your baby is ready for solids and the risks of giving your baby solid food earlier.

Spoon-feeding baby

Different feeding approaches

From baby-led weaning to traditional spoon-feeding, we’ll talk about all your options. We’ll discuss when and how to give fewer milk feeds, and make sure you’ve got all the important info you need to make your choice.

Baby eating

All about feeding

We want you to feel confident feeding your baby. So you will explore when and what to feed your baby, including thinking about meal and menu planning. This way you’ll come away from the online workshop reassured that you know what is best for your baby


These workshops are priced based on where they are being delivered in the UK. We want every parent to have access to our sessions, so we offer discounts in some circumstances – find your local course or get in touch for more info.
