Our gorgeous baby Sybil is now 7 weeks old and after a few hiccups at the start we seem to have established some sort of breastfeeding routine that works for both of us. Expressing (excess) breastmilk has helped massively when I battled mastitis in the second week and it has provided me with a small milk stash. This frozen milk has proven to be very handy as the little lady regularly vomits and spills her whole feed, needing a top-up shortly after.

I have found this combined breast and bottle feeding very easy thanks to the Miomee feeding system. Check out these great Miomee Feeding Essentials and enter for your chance to win the lot:

Miomee Manual Breast PumpWhen it comes to expressing milk a good breast pump is a must-have, it will save you time and allow you to collect every single drop of precious milk. The Miomee Manual Breast Pump ($89.95) is designed to be comfortable, efficient, easy-to-use, compact, portable, durable and affordable, what more could you ask for? The unique flex cup suits most breast shapes and by gently compressing the breast it closely imitates a baby’s natural feeding action.

With the Miomee Manual Breast Pump Kit you can easily go from expressing to feeding or storing breastmilk as both a feeding teat and milk storage lid are included as well as a 150ml Miomee bottle, bottle stand and 6 disposable breast pads. The pump is compatible with all sizes Miomee feeding bottles so if you are likely to pump a decent amount you can go straight to a bigger bottle as opposed to having to stop half way to empty/change bottles.

Miomee 150ml Bottle

Miomee Feeding Bottles are available in three different sizes: 150ml, 270ml and 340ml all of which come with slow flow teats. Medium Flow Teats and Fast Flow Teats ($8.95, 2 pack) are sold separately for when your baby gets older. The extra wide neck design is another example of how well the Miomee range mimics breastfeeding, the breastlike shape will make it easier for baby to drink from the bottle which is especially important when you combine breast and bottle feeding. A nice bonus of the wide neck shape is that it is very easy to fill and clean. The Miomee bottles are made of high quality materials, are very durable and of course they are BPA free. Smart buy: when you buy the Miomee 150ml Bottles ($16.95 2 pack) two free storage lids are included.

Miomee Milk Storage LidsYou can use the Miomee Storage Lids ($8.95, 4 pack) on any of the Miomee Feeding Bottles to store breastmilk, water, milk or even solids. The flat lids allow you to stack bottles in your fridge, freezer or insulated bag for travel which is much more practical than regular rounded bottle caps. To help your poor, exhausted baby brain the lids have a write-on panel so you can mark the date or contents of the bottle.

image001If you prefer to keep you bottles on hand for daily use you can use the Miomee Breastmilk and Formula Containers ($12.95, 4 pack) to creating ‘bite size’ portions for the fridge for freezer. They are easy to fill and stack, feature the write on panel and they are much cheaper than feeding bottles. The great thing is that when it comes to feeding time you place the whole container in the feeding bottle, that way you don’t have to transfer the milk.

Miomee Nipple ShieldsIf you are yet to start breastfeeding I’d like to warn you, it’s not all moonlight and roses and can be quite painful at times. Usually this is just a fase and it will get better. To give your sore nipples a break whilst keeping up with the feeding make sure you have a set of Miomee Nipple Shields on hand. The Miomee Nipple Shields ($12.95, 2 pack) are made from soft BPA-free silicone so they are gentle on your (sensitive skin).

Miomee Washable Breast PadsIn the early days (and in some cases longer too) breastfeeding is often a bit messy. In between feeds your breasts can leak some milk and during the actual feed you might find milk flows freely from the second breast while baby is drinking from the other side. The Miomee Washable Breast Pads ($14.95, 6 pads + carry case) will keep your clothing and underwear dry, one less worry on your mind. Unlike disposable pads you can simply wash and re-use them, great value for money!

  4. The thing I found most tricky (impossible!) about breast feeding was that I had a very low milk supply. I changed to bottle feeding and nothing was tricky and we loved using Tommee Tippee bottles!

  5. I’m looking forward to giving breast and bottle feeding a go. I’m imagining it being all tricky at first especially in the first few days.

  6. For me the Most Tricky Thing was Getting My Milk to come in when I was not with my Son all the time He was in NICU and I was sent home after 2 days.

  19. My son didn’t breast feed very well. He was a ‘lazy feeder’. I had to pump all the time and supplement with formula for 11 months. It was a pain but well worth it.

  28. I was actually very blessed and found breastfeeding very natural and fed all my three children for quite a long time my last one being 2 and a half years. My daughter is now expecting a baby and is hoping to breastfeed and hoping she will find it as natural and easy as I did.

  29. i have had 4 children and now only 9 weeks away from having my 5th tried to breast feed as long as i could but was always worried i didnt have enough milk or my babies wouldnt latch properly so my breasts would end up very sore and bleeding this time i have tried to do everything i can to boost my milk supply be for bubs gets here just worried about him being able to latch on properly

  36. Found it difficult breast feeding my fourth as she failed to gain weight 🙁

  37. I found the first 6 – 8 wks the most trying. Pain when feeding was aweful. Once this time passed feeding was a breeze. Although with number 3 I kept getting blocked milk ducts which is the most painful thing. Happening about 8 different times it was the physio that I went to that finally unblocked the ducts. Such relief!

  47. The thing I found most tricky about breastfeeding was the pain during the first couple of weeks, especially with my first baby. It took a lot of willpower in times when I just felt like giving up but I powered on and fed my first for 19 months and my second for over 2 years

  51. The thing I found trickiest with breastfeeding both my babies is getting them to latch on correctly!
    With my eldest she also didn’t feed well from me and we had to change to bottle feeding after a few months.
    This time with my newborn I found it hardest when my milk came in and my daughter was in a different hospital in the NICU unit.

  52. The biggest challenge for breast feeding for me was feeding in public, as well as expressing for the first time. I over came feeding in public by being around people I felt comfortable feeding in front of and practicing in front of the mirror to get my baby to latch on without much effort.

    Expressing and sterilising bottles was very confusing and I found the breast feeding association very helpful.

    • I now can add to this that I am not a huge fan of my little ones biting stage during breast feeding too!

  96. I am yet to have my baby so anything that helps & makes breast feeding easier and enjoyable is a great bonus !

  97. The most tricky thing for me was deciding when to stop! I fed my son til 16mo and daughter to 20mo. They both handled stopping with no issues so I believe I chose my timing well. Looking forward to doing it all again in 7 weeks when bub 3 is due 🙂

  115. I hated the pressure the nurses placed on me in hospital to breast Feed . Come on ladies we should be supporting each other not placing more stress

  116. I never got the hang of expressing. Despite breastfeeding my son for 20 months, I always had to leave formula if I went out, as I could never express more than a few millilitres.

  120. The pain of breastfeeding horrible (my son was tongue tied which made it tricky) and sterilising botles gets a little annoying!

  121. Figuring out how to get our baby to latch was the hardest. Once I got a handle on that, finding comfortable places to breastfeed in public was a challenge.

  136. Hardest thing about breastfeeding was trying to get baby to have a bottle if i wasnt going to be around or back at work

  137. Getting the baby to drink expressed milk out of the bottle and the milk not being wasted if the baby didn’t want it, especially when you don’t have alot to express in the first place.

  151. I am expecting my first baby anytime now @ 36 weeks along … so in answer to the question I would say the most difficult thing so far was turning up to the hospitals breast feeding classes with hubby & having him as the ONLY man there of 20 or so pregnany anxious women LOL! more funny than difficult though although he was definately squirming in his seat!

    So, no experience but after IVF the coffers are dry so this would go a long way to helping us get a positive start in the breast feeding realm in what will probably be our one & only very special opportunity 🙂 I am really hoping that I can breast feed & all goes well 🙂
