Helpful products for hungry babies
There’s been a lot of talk, and quite a bit of controversy, about feeding choices - breast or bottle. As far as we nursery advisors are concerned, the choice has to be yours. If for whatever reason you opt for the bottle path, we can recommend many good products on the market to help support you.
Along with the bottles, teats and sterilizer, if you're using formula milk the Philips Avent powder dispenser is really handy, carrying 3 pre-measured portions of your baby’s milk powder, and so is ideal for travel.
There are many bottles on the market to suit your baby’s needs. Dr Brown’s is a very good bottle for babies who suffer from colic, as it has a special valve inside which eliminates air as baby sucks.
As your baby grows and they start to need more than just milk, weaning then begins. Pre-prepared foods are popular, but there have been concerns expressed about the quantity of salt, sugar and additives them. There’s no doubting their convenience, but we’re certainly finding that for reasons of economy too, many mums are now turning to home-made meals. The Beaba Cook steamer/blender is a very good buy, enabling you to prepare and cook baby’s food with one neat product.
The Philips Avent Bottle Feeding Solutions Pack is a great set to buy and very good value. It contains everything you'll need to bottle feed your baby, taking you through to their first cup. Don’t worry if you’re on a tight budget, as the items in the set can be purchased separately too, allowing you to buy items as and when you need them.
