I received Breastfeeding Accessories & Bottles From NUK for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Stocking up on the essentials before welcoming a little one into the world sure can be stressful! Even though I plan to breastfeed this baby girl like I did with my last two I still have to get items to prepare for feedings. Babies feed about six times a day and I won’t always be right next to my baby girl with boob ready so I need to have a pump and bottles ready to go. NUK has launched two innovative products which keep the feeding process natural and just like mom.
The NUK Simply Natural Freemie Cups are to help give mom the freedom to pump anywhere, anytime, and around anyone. These cups fit discreetly and comfortably in mom’s bra and enable hands-free pumping of up to 16?oz. without having to remove her shirt. They are compatible with all leading double electric breast pumps and are especially great for moms going back to work. I went back to work after my second and pumped so I am aware how hard pumping can be. I wish I had this back when I was pumping for her because I would have used this on my drive home from work each day!
It includes everything you see in my picture above which is 2 collection cups, 1 connection kit and 4 funnels (25MM and 28MM). You of course provide your own pump and these are used with that pump. My baby has not yet arrived so of course I have not used it yet but I have gone over it. Just like with anything to do with pumping breast milk I highly suggest reading the instructions thoroughly first. In my picture below my finger is where your nipple would go.
I have thick and long nipples so mine fit best in the 28MM. The cup part attaches to hold the milk like in my picture below. Of course it is big because it is needed to be to hold the milk. I have tried it on while wearing my maternity/nursing bra and I just unhooked my nursing clips and put the cups in my bra and left my clips unhooked but that still held it tight against my breast. I can see how this would be a fabulous way to pump hands free!
In a few short months I will be trying it out for myself but until then I can honestly say this accessory is pretty awesome. To go along with their Freemie Cups you can then use their NUK Simply Natural Newborn Gift Set to feed and soothe baby.
- Four NUK? Simply Natural? bottles: ?two 5 oz bottles with slow flow nipple and two 9 oz bottles with medium flow nipple.
- Two fast flow nipples with 9 nipple holes.
- Three NUK? Orthodontic silicone pacifiers: one 100% silicone newborn pacifier and two pacifiers with adorable panda face design (6 to 18 months).
These bottles are modeled after the shape of mom’s breast to provide the perfect fit for baby’s mouth. The nipple moves flexibly with baby’s mouth to ensure a continuous latch and is made with extra soft silicone so it feels just like real deal. Available in three different flow rates so mom can easily transition the rate of feeding as baby grows.
These?Breastfeeding Accessories & Bottles From NUK would be great for moms-to-be to add to their registry! Pumping is hard enough so having a product to make it easier can really help a mom out. The Freemie and the bottles that mimic a breast are just what a new mom need!
