What to Buy for Baby - Feeding Essentials

Everything you need from the first day of breast or bottle feeding to the last day of weaning

Baby Feeding

From the best breast pumps to anti-colic bottles and basic cotton bibs, we've thought of everything you need

Problem Solvers

How can I make breastfeeding less painful? How many bottles do I need? What types of food do I start weaning on? We've got the answers to all your questions!


Baby Feeding Essentials


We’ve got the best breast pumps, stylish solutions for feeding in public, products that make breastfeeding more comfortable and everything you need to troubleshoot breastfeeding problems. We are told again and again that “breast is best” and while in theory breastfeeding is natural, many women struggle physically in the initial stages of breastfeeding, struggle to maintain it due to sheer exhaustion, and even find it alienating if they have little support from others. There are a number of accessories which address these issues and which we highly recommend in sustaining breastfeeding if that’s your choice.


We tell you how many bottles you need whether you bottle feed from birth or start much later, and identify the best choices for special needs such as colic or reflux. We’ve also got the most nutritious baby milks, the best options for feeding equipment sterilisation, a selection of cleaning brushes and starter kits that contain all the bottle feeding equipment you will need.


There are thousands of highchairs on the market, but we carry only the most functional and stylish – the models that have received the highest consumer product ratings and best reviews from parents. We’ve covered everything – ideas on foods to start off with, recommendations on the exact quantities you’ll need in terms of plates, bowls and utensils as well as the best easy-to-wash bibs and most practical methods for storing homemade food.


A selection of cotton bibs and muslins that you will need at every stage – including a wide range of organic options and several “large” muslin designs that can double as breastfeeding covers.
