During my most recent visit to Eurobaby I wanted to focus on the products I’m going to need for feeding my baby girl from newborn to next stage.
When it comes to feeding it can be somewhat overwhelming and hard to choose what products to buy as there are hundreds of options from bottles and pumps to next stage feeding accessories and highchairs
After meeting with Angelina over at Eurobaby I compiled a list of the best available feeding products from newborn to next to stage that will help you in choosing what’s best for you and your baby.
Dr.Browns Options+ Anti-Colic Starter Kit
The Dr Browns Options + Anti Colic range is clinically proven to reduce symptoms of colic and can be used from birth. This range is suitable for babies who suffer from colic, and for those who don’t, to help prevent & relieve the symptoms of colic.
The unique internal green vent system creates 100% vacuum free feeding, which is clinically proven to help reduce wind related colic. This is what makes Dr Brown’s the number one choice of UK Health Professionals for the relief of colicky symptoms.
