Philips Avent for mothers

Products from Philips Avent for breastfeeding mothers

Already a few days after birth, the female mammary glands in the breast produce nutritious breast milk. This whitish-yellow secretion is rich in minerals, vitamins, water and nutrients, but at 1.2% has a much lower protein content than cow's milk. Breast milk is the best food for newborns and can be given until they are four months old. In order to give the mother a little more flexibility in her time management and also to give the partner the opportunity to feed the baby, there are Philips Avent offers products that make breastfeeding easier.

Nursing pads give a clean feeling

Stimulated by the frequent sucking of babies at the maternal breast, the mammary glands produce up to one litre of breast milk per day. At a meal, a baby drinks between 200 and 250 ml of milk, the rest remains in the breast. Although milk production adapts to the needs of the little one and the glands produce more or less milk depending on the need, the breast cannot simply be closed. An unpleasant feeling of wetness is often the result, which is why the nursing pads from Philips Avent are an optimal protection for the breast. The ultra-thin pads are very absorbent and leak-proof thanks to their honeycomb structure and fluff pulp. A breathable non-woven fabric keeps the body feeling comfortable, dry and hygienic. Two adhesive strips on the back of the pads guarantee that they do not slip and can be worn almost invisibly under clothing.

During breastfeeding, a blockage of the milk ducts due to irregular drinking by the baby can lead to milk engorgement. To prevent this, the breast milk can be extracted with the Philips Avent breast pumps. Depending on your preference, hand-held devices, electric pumps or devices for bilateral pumping are available.
