Feeding: Nursing Supplies, Pumps and Milk essentials

When it comes to feeding your baby The Kiddie Company has everything you need, from manual breast pumps to electric breast pumps, sterilising kits and various name branded bottles for you to find the most compatible teat for your infant. Not every baby is the same, what works for your sister’s kid may not work for yours and it is important to take your baby’s individual needs into consideration.

If you decide to breastfeed your baby you may want to purchase a breast pump as well as breast milk storage containers that will allow you to safely store your breastmilk which is perfect for mommy’s going back to work or for moms that aren’t as comfortable with breastfeeding in public. The Kiddie Company has your favourite International branded baby bottles and teats, like Tommee tippee, Avent and NUK.  Our Feeding accessories range from newborn to toddler, and when your baby is ready for their first sippy cup we have great range of these too!

Breastfeeding essentials for mom:

Breast Pads: When breastfeeding, these are a necessity as those little wet circles around your nipples can be a slight bit embarrassing should you start to leak, you have no idea when your breastmilk will surprise you! Keeping a few extras in your new found hand bag, (nappy bag) in case of an emergency is always advised.

Nipple Cream Don’t get us wrong, breastfeeding is a beautiful experience, however, it can also be a painful one for first time mom's. Keeping a tube of nipple cream around can help you avoid the painful side of breastfeeding.

Nursing Pillow : a breastfeeding mommy’s best friend! New babies need to be fed every 3 hours and this can become quite uncomfortable if you don't have the right position or pillow to aid the comfort. With the nursing pillow, this will not be the case. Nursing bras: These are magical, comfortable and also practical! Nursing bras make it a little easier to breastfeed on the go.

Breastfeeding essentials for baby 

Breast Pumps: There are two types of breast pumps; manual breast pumps and electric breast pumps. If you are a working mom and need to pump milk in larger quantities on a more regular basis, an electric breast pump will be the perfect fit. The manual breast pump is perfect for moms who do not pump breast milk as frequently. It is also light and easy to take along while travelling.

Breast Milk Storage:  Milk storage containers are a necessity for any mom who needs to store breast milk for later use. These can be stored in the fridge and your milk should last 3 - 7 days.  If stored in the freezer, your milk can last up to 6 months!
