Whether you’re breastfeeding and need to express milk when you return to work (or to let dad have a turn at feeding their baby), or you’re combination feeding or just using formula exclusively, you’ll need plenty of baby bottles. Try one of our baby bottle starter kits, which come with everything you need including baby bottles, teats, cleaning brushes and sterilisers.
If you’re breastfeeding, you’ll need a breastfeeding pump to make expressing easier. A manual pump speeds up the process, or you can go one better and get an electric pump and quickly express off several bottles. When using bottles for feeding your baby, whether you’re using breast or formula milk, you’ll want a steriliser to clean your bottles efficiently. With space for multiple bottles, plus teats and lids, a Tommee Tippee steriliser will speed up the cleaning process and give you peace of mind knowing that your baby’s bottles are safe. Feeding pillows make feeding time easier whether you’re breast or bottle-feeding. The added support under your arms and side help avoid shoulder strain and back ache, whilst giving some extra cushioning for your baby to settle into.
When it’s time to move onto solids, get a highchair that is secure and easy to clean. Food is going to go everywhere, especially if you want to take a baby-led weaning approach, so make it easier on yourself by getting a chair with a large tray and wipe clean coverings on the seat. A large supply of baby bibs is also a must!
Nourishment goes in one end and of course it has to come out of the other! Nappy bags are essential for keeping all your nappies in order and for when you go out with your baby. Some even come with changing mats and other accessories.
