7 helpful products for feeding your baby
Whether your baby is bottle or breastfed, you are the best mom or dad for your child. In our BABYmatters range, you'll find several products that make it easier for you as a parent and will certainly come in handy.
Soft night light
"Why do I need a night light to feed my child? Well, night feeds are often part of parenthood. Especially in the beginning, it is important that your child drinks well and drinks enough. A soft ambient light like the one in Yumi Yay can come in handy, without having to turn on a bright light. This way, you create an instant cosy moment with your child, while your partner can continue sleeping.
A hydrophilic towel is indispensable when feeding your baby. Protect your clothing by putting a hydrophilic cloth on your shoulder when your baby burps. Or use the cloth as a breastfeeding towel to discreetly breastfeed your baby. Tuck the corner of the tetra cloth under the strap of your nursing bra to keep it in place.
Discover 13 more reasons why a tetra cloth is so useful.
When you cuddle your baby or carry him/her close in a baby carrier, your body produces oxytocin, also known as the cuddle hormone. This substance provides a warm feeling and a good bonding with your baby and also stimulates the milk reflex when breastfeeding.
If you need a little help to trigger the milk reflex, take your baby for a walk in the baby carrier. The BeSafe Haven baby carrier is very easy to put on and take off thanks to the Flex Shape Buckles. This makes it easy to take your baby out of the carrier when you feel the flow reflex.
Baby bathtub with scale
The first few months with a newborn are particularly exciting. Unlike measured bottle feedings, breastfeeding and reflux feeding parents cannot see how much milk their little one is taking in or keeping down. This makes it important to keep a close eye on your child's weight.
The AquaScale baby bath has an integrated baby scale that makes it easy for you to keep track of your baby's weight at home. Thanks to the built-in bath thermometer, you can also read the water temperature on the LCD display. So with one purchase of AquaScale from Baby Patent, you immediately have three handy baby products at home!
Does your baby drink from a bottle or do you need to pump to keep up your milk production? OXO Tot has developed a handy cleaning set especially for cleaning your breast pump and baby bottles.
With these brushes, you can get into the smallest corners and your pump or bottle will be clean in no time. Or go for the complete set with a bottle brush and two smaller brushes that can also be used for teats and straws. The compact bottle drying rack from OXO Tot comes in handy to dry all the parts of the pump, baby bottles and teats.
Glass baby bottle
A handy baby bottle is a must have for every young family. Elodie's durable baby bottles are made of temperature-resistant borosilicate glass and have a soft silicone coating.
Tip: Elodie's baby bottles are also compatible with the teats of Lansinoh, Difrax Wide, Avent anti-colic and the Avent Natural teat (including twist-off top).
If you're looking for a sustainable alternative to plastic storage bags, OXO Tot's storage jars and freezer trays are ideal! Breast milk can be kept for up to 4 days in the back of the fridge and at least 6 months in the freezer.
You can choose to divide the milk, vegetable snacks or fruit puree into 22ml portions or freeze a full portion immediately. The OXO Tot storage containers have airtight lids and hold 60, 120 or 180 ml. The containers can later be used as a fruit box, ice cube tray or storage box (for baby food).
At BABYmatters you will find a lot of handy baby stuff to make those moments of feeding your baby more pleasant!
