Along with the bottles, teats and steriliser, if you're using formula milk a dispenser is really handy. They often carry several pre-measured portions of your baby’s milk powder, and so they're ideal for travel.
There are many bottles on the market to suit your baby’s needs. Some, such as Dr Brown’s produce bottles that help babies who suffer from colic, as they have a special valve inside which eliminates air as baby sucks.
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. 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.

The Beaba Cook steamer/blender is a very good buy, enabling you to prepare and cook baby’s food with one neat product.
If your little one is ready for solids, this charming dinner set from Little Rhymes includes everything you need in one handy pack, and the OXO tot range is sturdy and colourful too.
