Free to access and open 365 days a year, the NCT Infant Feeding Line is here to listen, help and support new mums and families - however they feed their babies.

Open 8am till midnight, we answer calls at night, during the holidays and weekends, when other services are closed.

"It’s so helpful to know we can call so late at night."   Anonymous caller

Since the pandemic began, with so much health and community support unavailable, it’s a life line to those worried, stressed and anxious about feeding their babies. Call volumes have increased dramatically. 

         "It was a relief to admit I was struggling, you helped shine a light.  Nicola

At the same time, like many charities, our fundraising has been affected and we need your help.
Right now, demand for our support has never been higher. Please donate so that every call is answered - day or night, weekday or weekend.

£15 could answer a call to help a new mum anxious about feeding her baby. £75 could pay to answer calls in the evening when parents need us most £240 could help us answer calls quicker by funding extra capacity for a whole day

"I was so grateful, particularly on days we were on our own, close to tears"  Tracey

In March 2022 the Big Give gave us the amazing opportunity to fundraise with match funding via the Women and Girls fund 2022 and an astounding £25,228 was raised.

Whilst this is an amazing achievement, the increased demand for our support continues and so does the appeal.

"It has just been so hard. Talking to you has made me feel better"  Anonymous caller
