iBaby World – Our Guide to Baby Feeding Accessories
Teaching your baby to use a bottle to drink milk is an important skill not only for them, but also for making your life a little easier to plan and organise.
iBaby World stocks a wide range of Bottle feeding equipment and accessories to make the transition from breast to bottle as smooth as possible. Let’s have a look at what’s on the menu.
If you’d like your child to drink breast milk, but you’d also like to be able to do this flexibly (or have your husband feed them once in a while!) A breastfeeding pump is an essential piece of equipment. A pump allows you to express milk at a time that is convenient to you, and then give your baby milk at suitable times from a bottle. This may also be valuable where mothers are finding their nipples are suffering.
A pump gives their skin a break from constant irritation. Pumps may be manually or electrically operated, but vitally must be properly sanitised to protect your child from harmful bacteria. iBaby World stocks a range of pumps and accessories including sanitisers and sterilisers to keep you safe.
If you’re transitioning away from breastfeeding, you will obviously need something else to hold milk for your baby. We recommend having a few bottles on hand so you can store milk in the fridge while other bottles are in use or being cleaned. Bottles may start with a nipple head to allow your child to suck as if from the nipple, but as they grow you may transition them to cups with an opening that still allows them to suck, but prepares them to drink without a specialised opening.
We all know that baby feeding time is a messy business, especially when they transition away from breast milk. If you want to make sure you don’t end up doing a round of laundry a day, it’s essential to equip yourself with a few bibs or smocks that can be wiped down or rinsed under the tap regularly after meals. We stock a range of bibs to suit your needs, so that even the wriggliest of babies doesn’t make a Jackson Pollock from their porridge.
iBaby World stocks a great range of additional products to help you move through feeding stages all the way to solid foods. This includes little forks, spoons, plates, bowls, and a range of storage options such as jars and boxes. We also stock food makers and mixers to help you prepare food suitable for your child before they begin teething. We have everything you need to keep your baby happy!
