Support and nursing pillow

Ergobaby Natural Curve Nursing Pillow – Gold

Advertisement

“This is a really effective nursing pillow. It has a great shape that helps positioning really well so makes using it a real pleasure. It’s very soft to the touch and the cover can be easily removed and washed. It also helps mum support her arms which is a bonus. Definitely one of the best nursing pillows I’ve tried.” Anna, mum of 2

bbhugme Pregnancy Pillow – Silver

“Honestly this has been a life saver. I hadn’t had a full night’s sleep in pregnancy till this product changed everything. It’s even stopped back ache in the mornings. It’s easy to use, the case is easy to clean and it is amazingly comfortable. A clear winner.” Liz, mum of 1

bbhugme Nursing Pillow – Joint Bronze

“This is a lovely nursing pillow that can be adapted for different sizes and positions. If you tie the pillow around your hips, you can sit baby on it while holding onto your older baby and it will help take some of the weight off and make it more comfortable for carrying your baby around! I have also been using it as a pregnancy support pillow and have found it very comfortable and helpful to getting a bit of extra rest at night time.” Claire, mum of 1

Belloost Pregnancy Pillow – Joint Bronze

“Once I’d got the hang of getting comfy into a good position on the pillow I really felt a relief of the pressure on my lower back – I’m normally a front or back sleeper so that comfy, cosy feeling of being able to lie on my front again was bliss, felt so natural and familiar so very relaxing. The sturdiness of the pillow meant I felt very secure and safe in lying on my front without any pressure on my bump, and my hips and pelvis felt very supported.” Elisa, mum of 2

Breast pump

Breast pump

“The machine is simple to put together and easy to use and adjust.

Available from: John Lewis

MAM 2-in-1 Single Breast Pump – Joint Silver

“I love the sleek design of the machine and the touchscreen which makes it so easy to use. The electric pump was able to extract more milk than my current pump and it was very comfortable to use. It also wasn’t too loud when in use. I like how it’s very simple to switch between manual and electric pumping modes.” Kerry, mum of 1

Available from: Mothercare

Philips Single Electric Breast Pump – Joint Silver

“Really good product, a bit pricey compared to other pumps I have seen and tried but well worth the money. Expressing is comfortable and easy.” Baljit, mum of 1

Available from: Philips

Medela Swing Pump And Feed Set – Joint Bronze

“Excellent quality product that pumps really well. It’s quite highly priced compared to others on the market, but definitely worth considering.” Lucy, mum of 1

Available from: Medela

Nuby Natural Touch Ultimate Double Breast Pump – Joint Bronze

“I had postpartum anaemia and my breast milk was delayed in coming in. I used the stimulation function of the Nuby pump to encourage milk production. I also used it to pump top up feeds. The pump was invaluable in helping me start my breastfeeding journey and took a lot of stress out of a difficult time.” Laura, mum of 1

Finalist: Green Group Collective 150ml Silicone Breast Pump with Suction Base

Available from: Argos

My Expert Midwife No Harm Nipple Balm – Joint Silver

“Easy to use product and pump. Great that you don’t need to remove prior to feeding. Similar ingredients to cheaper products on the market, so a little pricey but product does go a long way. Had no nipple issues using this through breast feeding.” Kara, mum of 1

Available from: My Expert Midwife

Boobbix Breastfeeding Cookies And Bars – Joint Silver

Breastfeeding top

Cover Me Baby Cover Me – Gold

“A really useful product which I know I will use for years. Handy now as a swaddle and cover when feeding, but I can see us using on high chairs and shopping trolleys as my baby grows.” Lucy, mum of 1

Available from: Cover Me

Chico Jack’s The Breastfeeding Hoodie – Silver

“I love the longer length of this hoodie as I am 5ft 8 and can wear this with leggings. The fleece lining feels extra snug. The zips make breastfeeding even easier in public and I can feed baby discreetly. I prefer this then having a flap that goes over baby like other maternity tops as it is easier for me to help baby to latch on and for her to have a peek up at me every now and then!” Lauren, mum of 1

Available from: Chico Jacks

The Bshirt – Joint Bronze

“The style of the vest means it can be worn on its own or as an undergarment allowing you to wear regular clothes on top. I really like this feature as regular nursing clothes can be quite obvious and not very flattering. It also comes in a long sleeve which is ideal for the colder months or for when you don’t want to wear a coat or jacket. The organic cotton has a lovely soft and comfortable feel to it and washed very nicely maintaining its stretch and colour.” Lollie, mum of 2

Available from: Bshirt

Stylish Mum Breastfeeding Hoodie – Joint Bronze

“I’ve lived in this during the cold winter months, even wearing it to bed while co-sleeping with my newborn. It’s comfy, easy to feed in and discreet. People have even commented on how ‘slimming’ it is – fantastic!” Ruth, mum of 1

Chicco Polly Magic Relax – Silver

“Great highchair. Love that it is suitable from newborn. Seat unit is comfortable and soft. Feeding tray is a good size. Very convenient to store. Price is slightly on the high side but having said that I would definitely recommend to any new parents.” Alexis, mum of 5

Bobo&boo 5 Piece Bamboo Dinnerware Set – Silver

I loved this set and it appealed to me straight away. It’s made from bamboo fibres and therefore eco-friendly whilst not breaking the bank. The set might be a bit more expensive than others but in my opinion with its sleek and simple yet stylish design this set can easily last you from toddler all the way through to primary school.” Katharina, mum of 3

Available from: Amazon

DK Annabel Karmel Weaning Book – Joint Bronze

“I’ve recommended this to other first-time mums as I found it the most interesting, engaging and informative weaning book so far. I enjoyed that their guidelines were not set in stone and it allows you to make informed decision to figure out how you want to wean. The images were colourful and clear and the book was set out well and colour coded for when you need to quickly check a recipe etc.” Rebecca, mum of 1

Available from: Waterstones

Doidy Bowl – Joint Bronze

“The babyfood pro was extremely easy to use and clean. I have made large batches as well as small one off meals for my baby and like the ability to do this. I would highly recommend this product.” Louise, mum of 1

Available from: Vital Baby

Itsy Blitz – Bronze

“I think it would be very useful on holiday as of course, you would not have a blender. Another advantage would be if you have older children you could blend their food, when eating out so you get a 2 for 1 meal and no wastage!” Lauren, mum of 1

Available from: My Itsy

Cup / Beaker

Toddler cup or beaker

MAM Trainer 2-in-1 – Gold

Available from: Amazon

Kiddylicious – Bronze

“We tested the Kiddylicious strawberry wafers and they were a big hit with all three children, aged 14 months, three and five.

Big thumbs up from us. All of my children loved the range and I loved knowing that what they are eating is organic and a healthy snacking option without added sugars. If you can find it in your local I would suggest you give it a try you’ll probably find your kids love it.” Katharina, mum of 3

Nana’s Manners Children’s Cutlery – Gold

“One of those simple, but brilliant ideas you wish you’d thought of. This colourful cutlery set is ideal for smaller children. The clever design teaches them how to hold a knife and fork properly and is so easy to use. Both my 2.5 year old and 4 year old were desperate to get their little hands on it.” Maxine, mum of 2

Available from: JoJo Maman Bebe

Annabel Karmel’s Baby & Toddler Recipe App – Silver

“This is a good starter collection of recipes from first foods to family mealtimes with older children.
