Whether you’re expressing off breast milk or using formula, bottle feeding can be a convenient way to feed your baby if you’re going back to work, or if dad wants to get involved. We have plenty of baby bottle accessories that make bottle feeding easier. From bottle warmers to insulated carry bags and baby bottles, you can find whatever you need. If you find you need to express at some point on your nursing journey, invest in one of our breast pumps. Whether you go manual or electric, these are vital for getting enough milk out into a bottle, so that your baby can enjoy the benefits of breast milk even if you are at work or just out for a little bit of me time. When you do get the time to feed your baby yourself, breast feeding pillows can let you and your baby get into a comfortable position so that they can enjoy a proper feed.
Feeding, whether it’s from the breast, the bottle, or solids, can get pretty messy. So, make sure you have bibs on-hand, to catch most of the mess, and muslin squares for cleaning up those little accidents.
As your baby begins to wean and move onto solids, you’ll want a good quality highchair for them to sit in, so that they can feel included at meal times. Spacious trays will catch most of the fallout as they try to feed themselves and wipe clean surfaces on the chair make clean-up simple after meal time is over. It’s also worth getting some highchair toys so that before dinner is served, they don’t become frustrated with being strapped in, or when they lose interest in the food you still have time to eat your own food.
