Lansinoh launches pump-store-feed solution to help mums breastfeed for longer

Lansinoh launches pump-store-feed solution to help mums breastfeed for longer
- Now available exclusively at Mothercare
 

With over 30 years of experience supporting breastfeeding mothers, Lansinoh® has just added a new evidence-based solution to its award winning product range of beloved classics such as HPA Lanolin, Disposable Nursing Pads and Breastmilk Storage Bags. In line with the company’s commitment to helping mums and babies enjoy the benefits of breastfeeding for longer, the fully compatible ‘pump-store-feed’ solution was developed for those times when today’s busy lifestyle keeps mum temporarily apart from baby, due to work or other social circumstances.
 
The new product range includes a complete line of high quality Manual and Electric Breast Pumps which enable mums to express their breast milk quickly and easily, directly into bottles which can be safely stored in the fridge or freezer for whenever needed. With the clinically proven NaturalWaveTMTM  Bottle&Teat, babies can enjoy mum’s precious breast milk even when mum is away and return to the breast when mum is back. Based on extensive research[i], the NaturalWaveTMTM Bottle &Teat helps maintain established breastfeeding patterns, so that mums can switch between breast and bottle with ease and confidence.
Katie Hilton, Health Professional Associate at Lansinoh® and qualified heath visitor, midwife and nurse, explains: “Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for the first six months of baby’s life with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years. Families sometimes find this challenging and as a result, as many as 63% of mums who stopped breastfeeding said they would have liked to have breastfed for longer according to the Infant Feeding Survey conducted in 2010 on behalf of the Health and Social Care Information Centre. At Lansinoh®, we understand mums sometimes need a little help, support and flexibility, hence we have created a pump-store-feed solution that mums can rely on to achieve their breastfeeding goals.”

Designed to help mums express more milk in less time, the Lansinoh® 2in1 Breast Pump offers comfortable, flexible and effective breastfeeding support. Packed with features that adapt to mum’s individual needs, the 2in1 Electric Pump offers a choice between single and double electric pump functionality.

Lansinoh® mOmma NaturalWaveTMTM Botle & Teat
The NaturalWaveTMTM Bottle & Teat is ideal for breastfeeding mothers who occasionally have to be apart from their baby and express so that their precious breastmilk is always on hand when baby needs it. It enables mums to switch easily between breast and bottle and maintain their established breastfeeding patterns.
Based on extensive researchi, the NaturalWaveTMTM Teat is clinically proven to encourage baby’s instinctive sucking action and specifically their ‘wave-like’ tongue movement for natural oral development.
With a wide base, the NaturalWaveTMTM Teat encourages a wider latch-on, similar to the baby’s natural latch. Super soft and flexible for optimal compression, this 100% silicone teat enables baby’s smooth ‘wave-like’ tongue movement.
It has a gradual slope and textured base for improved suction and its structure is strengthened with innovative inner vertical ridges to make it collapse resistant so that baby can enjoy a comfortable feed.
For peace of mind, AVSTM Air Ventilation System reduces intake of air, a potential cause of colic. To meet baby’s changing needs, the one piece, hassle-free NaturalWaveTMTM Teats are available in slow, medium and fast flows.

I was kindly sent Snapdragon and Patchouli one of Comforts New fabric softeners from the luxurious range and I must say it smells lush. I am forever going around supermarkets opening the bottles and taking a quick sniff to see how nice they smell before choosing which one I would like to buy as ive noticed the stronger it smells the longer the freshness will last on my laundry. I really do love a lot of Comforts fabric softeners they all smell so nice and leave our clothes feeling really soft but Comforts new luxurious range are now top of my softeners as the fragrance last so much longer than any others I have used . I have recommend Comfort to both my family and friends as they all asked me what my new perfume was that I was wearing.

Barbie and the secret door DvD #Review

DISCOVER THE ULTIMATE FAIRYTALE MUSICAL!™ ADVENTURE WITH BARBIE™ AND THE SECRET DOOR
AVAILABLE ON DVD FROM 1ST SEPTEMBER 2014
Includes Barbie™ Song Book
 
Experience magic and music this September with The Ultimate Fairytale Musical!™, Barbie™ and The Secret Door, released on DVD from 1st September 2014.
Barbie™ stars as Alexa, a shy princess who discovers a secret door in her kingdom and enters a whimsical land filled with magical creatures and surprises. Inside, Alexa meets Romy and Nori, a mermaid and a fairy, who explains that a spoiled ruler named Malucia is trying to take all the magic in the land. To her surprise, Alexa has magical powers in this world, and her new friends are certain that only she can restore their magic. Discover what happens when Alexa finds the courage to stand up for what’s right and learns that the power of friendship is far more precious than magic.
Featuring seven new songs, this enchanted musical is set to have little ones singing along as they can follow the in-pack song book and join Alexa on her magical, musical journey.

Barbie and the secret door is one of our top fairy tales this year its so full of life, colour and happiness. When I sat down with my daughters Davina and Michaela to watch it I have to say I could watch it over and over again its magical.
Both my girls and I love Barbie Alexa and how she saves all her friends from the mean and spoilt Malucia who steals all their magic. Davina and Michaela have watched it so many times they now know all the words and sing along with Alexa when she sings her magic song. Barbie and the secret door is such a beautiful fairy tale which leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy inside, I felt myself smiling all the way through.
 
We give Barbie and the secret door 5/5
