The little helpers from Medela make breastfeeding easier

The first weeks after the birth of a baby are challenging for parents and children. The correct handling of the little one and the unfamiliar utensils for the baby have to be learned. With the accessories from Medela accessories make many a move easier and breastfeeding becomes a time of cuddling and well-being for mother and child.

Taking the right breastfeedingposition

Breast milk is the best food for the little ones. Breastfeeding also promotes a sense of security for the little ones through the intensive contact between mother and child. In order for breastfeeding to be a success, it is important to have a good breastfeedingposition. The baby must be at breast height so that it can grasp the nipple with its little mouth without having to turn its head unnaturally. The breastfeeding pillow from Medela is an accessory that makes it easier to assume this position. The half-moon shape of the pillow allows the baby's weight to be distributed evenly and leads to less muscle and joint pain. Thanks to the lightweight EPS microbeads, the nursing pillow is very light and nestles comfortably against the skin. In case of a small mishap, the cover can be removed and cleaned in the washing machine. The breastfeeding pillow is a great accessory even before birth, because it can be used to support the baby's tummy while sleeping. Of course the breastfeeding pillow is Medela breathable and hypoallergenic.

Baby products need thorough cleaning

When babies drink breast milk or formula milk, this milk is free of bacteria and germs. After drinking, the accessories from Medelahelp ensure that bottles, dummies and teats are thoroughly cleaned. Bottles can be washed in the dishwasher, but it is advisable to remove the milk residues beforehand with a bottle brush. The brush has a brush head with tufted bristles that removes all milk residue the first time it is used. To reach difficult places, the handle is flexible. The end of the handle is a special feature, because the spiral structure allows thorough cleaning of dummies and teats. Newborns are very sensitive to germs in the environment because their immune system is only slowly establishing itself. It is recommended to sterilise bottles and teats for the first 12 weeks of life. With the microwave pouches, this activity is very easy. The set contains five bags, each of which can be used several times. The teats and bottles are placed in a bag and the bag is sealed and placed in the microwave for three minutes. Thanks to steam sterilisation, 99.9% of the most common bacteria and germs are killed. Afterwards, the individual parts must dry well. Each bottle of Medela can be used with a selected teat. The teats are held on the bottle by the bottle ring. Through frequent use, this can develop small hairline cracks and should be replaced after a few months. At Medela bottle rings are available as accessories.
