If you're a parent or parent-to-be I'm sure most of you would have heard of the brand Dr Brown's by now. Dr Brown's are one of the leading brands for baby products across the globe. I'll be honest, I hadn't heard of them before Amelia was born but I came across them in her first few weeks of life.
Dr Brown's Natural flow bottles are designed to reduce colic and wind by eliminating negative pressure, the bottles can help to reduce the build up of fluid in baby's ear. The design also mimics breastfeeding, so Natural flow bottles are perfect for breast milk and formula too. When Amelia was a newborn at around 8 weeks I tried expressing and giving her breast milk via a bottle. However she wouldn't take any bottle and we tried loads of different brands to cheap supermarket ones until I finally came across Dr Brown's. Success! I was able to feed her milk via a bottle for the first time and it gave my breasts some time to heal. Although this was only short lived as Amelia stopped taking milk from a bottle after then I do believed that Dr Brown's helped as the teats were so similar to the breast.
Dr Brown's offer a large range of products from baby bottles to breast pumps and sterilisers, all which suit every lifestyle and are widely recommended by many parents and health professionals as the most effective way of preventing colic caused by regular teats and baby bottles.
Their Newborn Gift Set which includes everything that you need to feed your newborn whether they are formula fed or given expressed milk apart from the breast pump which is sold separately. The gift set includes a steriliser with tongs, 2 x 120 ml bottles, 3 x 240ml bottles, 2 level 2 teats, 2 level 2 teats, a bottle brush and two travel caps. Available to buy for £45.95 which is a fantastic price down from £60!
The Newborn gift set is something I would have loved to have bought or received when pregnant with Amelia and would make a lovely gift for any expecting mother.
When I breastfed Amelia in the early stages when she wasn't on solids I would find that she would be hungry all of the time, I found a breast pump very useful for being able to express milk handy if you needed to leave your baby with someone for a few hours so you can have a break, or if Daddy wants to share feeding duties and you can catch up on some sleep. I didn't express a lot but it was great to have a pump handy if I did need to at any point. I loved breastfeeding but everyone needs a break every now and again
