Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding, so much is being said about it at the moment and everyone has an opinion which can make it all very confusing. I myself have encountered both a breastfeeding disaster (the twins, 2 months) and a breastfeeding success (miss 2, 1 year) yet all three children have turned out healthy and happy which in my opinion is all that matters. After my first (negative) experience with breastfeeding and the nasty comments I received from some people I was quite scared about having to try it again but I discovered the Breastfeeding Book just in time.

Breastfeeding BookThe book ‘Breastfeeding: Real Mums Tell You How’ by Melissa Macdonald (also known as the Breastfeeding Book) is a real, informative book with lots of facts, figures, real-life experiences, tips and tricks about breastfeeding, combined feeding and bottle feeding. It left me feeling inspired to try again but also supported in case it didn’t work out the way I hoped. After reading this book I was much less worried about feeding our new baby and I think it really helped me to stay calm.

Now that I have started my third breastfeeding journey I thought it would be good to mention this book again, it could just be what you need to help you prepare for your own feeding journey without feeling guilty or pressured. I wish every mum could read the Breastfeeding Book, it is so worth the read!

Quite some time ago, during one of my online travels searching for hip products to share with you, I came across a very interesting looking baby bottle called Mimijumi. The quirky shape of this bottle straight away caught my attention but at the time Mimijumi was unavailable in Australia so I decided not get you all excited about something out of reach. Well I have good news for you, Mimijumi has recently hit Australian shores so now all Aussie mums can get their hands on these amazing baby bottles.

There is much more to Mimijumi than meets the eye, this range is carefully developed by a brilliant team of doctors, mothers, lactation experts and designers who bundled their knowledge and talents to guarantee a product that really works. The bottle is designed in the US while the high quality, completely safe materials are sourced from Europe, because when it comes to feeding your precious baby only the best is good enough.

The Mimijumi concept is actually quite simple, which is also the reason these bottles are so popular. Most people will agree that breastfeeding has fantastic benefits for mother and baby but the truth is that breastfeeding is not always possible. By creating a bottle that closely mimics a mother’s breast you can bottlefeed your baby as natural as possible. The unique Mimijumi shape, texture and drinking technique will make the transition to (or a combination of breast and) bottlefeeding a breeze.

Mimijumi products are completely free from BPA, latex and EA free and they exceed Australian safety standards, because the last thing mums need is to worry about nasty chemicals in their baby’s milk. The bottles don’t just look ‘simple’, they are simple to use too as each bottle consists of just 3 pieces: the base, an easy screw-on nipple (one piece) and the lid. You can even clean the bottles in the dishwasher (top rack)!

There are two bottle sizes available, Very Hungry (240ml, $22.99) and Not So Hungry (120ml, $19.99), as well as replacement nipples in two flow rates. When you order 3 items or more shipping is free Australia wide.

To find out more about Mimijumi, to locate a stockist near you or to order online visit www.mimijumi.com.au.
