Help with breastfeeding
You'll have heard the evidence: breast milk gives babies all the nutrients they need for their first months of life and helps protect them from infection. If you’re able to breastfeed, it can also help you and your baby to bond and get closer - both physically and emotionally.
If you are breastfeeding, we’ve plenty of products to help you with the process.
Treat yourself to a proper nursing chair: KUB's glider chairs come in several finishes and are ideal for nursing or later for bedtime stories as they've been ergonomically designed. There are matching stools too for when you want to put your feet up.
A nursing pillow is a bit of a must for comfort. The wrap-around design provides plenty of support and helps you to maintain an ideal position for feeding. Or there’s the V-shaped pillow available from our Nursery department.
Reusable thermal pads such as those from Lansinoh can be used warm or cool to enhance feeding. They're safe and discreet, and help soothe the discomfort of blocked ducts, mastistis or engorgement.
Nipple cream gives immediate soothing relief to nipples made sore by breastfeeding. The cream is 100% natural with no preservatives or additives, there's no flavour, colour or perfume which means there's no need to remove before breastfeeding.
And to protect sore nipples during breast feeding, we do nipple shields. They're shaped to allow skin contact with baby, and, made from ultra fine silicone, are odourless and tasteless.
