Welcome to the Baby Feeding Law Group (BFLG)

The Baby Feeding Law Group is made up of leading UK health professional and mother support organisations. Members include the Royal College of Midwives, the Royal College of Nursing, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative, UNISON and mother support groups such as the NCT, La Leche League, Breastfeeding Network and the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers (see the 'Group' section for the full membership list).
 
BFLG is working to strengthen UK baby feeding laws in line with UN recommendations.
 
We aim to protect babies’ health by ending marketing practices which commercialise infant feeding and threaten breastfeeding.
 
This aim can be achieved by bringing UK and European legislation into line with the International Code and subsequent relevant WHA Resolutions.*
This will help parents base their decisions about infant feeding on truly independent evidence-based information.

* The International Code means the WHO/UNICEF International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes (1981) plus subsequent relevant World Health Assembly Resolutions. The Resolutions have the same status as the International Code and should be read with it. The International Code is also known as the WHO Code.
