5 Products That Will Make Feeding Time a Breeze For New Mamás
Whether you choose to breastfeed or formula-feed your bebé (or a combination of both), feeding time shouldn't be stressful. Like abuela always says, it should be a moment of bonding for you and your bebé throughout the day and night — but for many new mamás, that's easier said than done. So to make feeding time a little bit less stressful for all new mamás no matter which route you choose, we put together a list of five trusted products from Target that will make this time with your bebé go as smoothly as possible.
Philips Avent Natural Baby Bottles
I used Philips bottles with both of my niños. What I loved most about them is their anticolic technology and natural latch-on nipple, which makes these Philips Avent Natural Baby Bottles ($22 for three) easy to combine with breastfeeding. They're also easy to wash and sanitize so your bebé stays safe and healthy.
Boppy Notebook Nursing Pillow and Positioner
Add an extra layer of comfort for not only bebé but you, too, mami, as you breastfeed. The Boppy Notebook Nursing Pillow and Positioner ($40) lifts your bebé to prop them into an easier position to feed. As your bebé grows, the Boppy pillow can be used for tummy time and playing.
Enfamil NeuroPro Gentlease Infant Formula Powder
When opting to bottle-feed, choosing the right formula is always top of mind for new mamás. Enfamil NeuroPro Gentlease Infant Formula Powder ($34) is one of the top-rated formula choices because it offers brain-development and immune-system support, and helps to ease crying, fussiness, and gas.
Baby Bib Set
Mi mamá always said you can never have enough bibs and burp cloths when welcoming a baby, and she was right. Target has a wide selection of bibs and burp cloths to keep your bebé clean. From this four-piece set ($10) of machine-washable bibs to silicone options, Target has them all at affordable prices.
Haakaa Breast Pump with Suction Base and Orange Stopper
A lot of new (and experienced) mamás rely on breastfeeding pumps. This Haakaa Breast Pump with Suction Base and Orange Stopper ($28) has no cords or batteries — instead it uses suction to draw your milk. Plus, it's made from 100 percent medical grade silicone, is eco-friendly, and is small enough to fit in any diaper bag.
