Pregnancy Awareness - Part 3

Trimester 3 is when the build-up of pregnancy truly sets in. Have you done enough research? When do you go on maternity leave? Which baby products do you still need to buy? There seems to be so much to do but too little time!

In today’s post we take you through some essentials and some spoils for you to add to your baby shower wish-list.


In the age of the internet we are inundated with social media telling us which items we absolutely need for our babies but in actual fact they are very simple creatures.

When looking at breastfeeding and bottle feeding, there are so many options on offer.  A few of our favourites include:

  • Philips AVENT Classic Feeding Bottles–The Classic range has been improved to provide an even more enjoyable feeding experience as well as being proven to reduce colic and discomfort. Buy it here.
  • Philips AVENT Glass Natural Feeding Bottles –Our Natural glass bottle helps to make bottle feeding more natural for baby and you. The teat features a comfort petal design for natural latch on similar to the breast, making it easy for baby to combine breast and bottle feeding. Buy it here.
  • Philips AVENT Manual Single Breastpump – The Manual breastpump offers a more comfortable pumping position due to the unique design and soft massage cushion with warm feel. Buy it here.
  • Philips AVENT Electric Single Breastpump – This electric breastpump is the perfect timesaver for moms and is easily operational at the touch of a button. The compact lightweight design allows for easy travel if need be. Buy it here.

A few other feeding essentials include Breastmilk Storage Bags, Microwave Steriliser Bags, Breast Pads and Breastmilk Storage Cups.
