Feeding your child with the right baby food during his or her first year is important for laying the foundation of a healthy diet later on.

After your child’s third month he or she is about to discover her world and starts to move much more. Between month five and six you can start to serve your little one supplementary food. With the first spoon full of delicious carrot puree a new and exciting stage of your child’s development begins. More information >
During the first couple of months, breast milk is the best source of nutrition for your baby. It protects your little one from infections, reduces the risk of suffering from allergies and just meets the needs of a new-born baby perfectly. UNICEF and the World Health Organisation WHO recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of your baby’s life. Breast milk has many benefits:
In order to make breastfeeding as comfortable as possible for both mother and child, there are various useful items to purchase. Nursing pillows for instance, serve several purposes. While your little one is nursed he or she lies comfortably on the pillow or else is supported by it. The soft and comfy filling makes nursing pillows particularly easy to shape and can be adjusted individually. Breastfeeding also contributes to bonding with your child. After the nursing period is over you can continue using the pillow for relaxation or else as a neck support for mom or dad. Nursing pillows are available in various shapes, colours and sizes.
The nursing and relaxing chair Metal Glider by Hauck supplies you and your child with optimum relaxation. The chair rotates and reclines if required and features a backrest that can be adjusted continuously until it reaches a full recline position. When combined with the little stool which is included in delivery, you can create the perfect retreat for you and your child. Even after the nursing period is finished you can use this comfy chair for relaxing.
Breast milk is the best source of nutrition for your child. Breastfeeding is thereby the most natural way. However, there might be situation in which you are not able to do so. If you still don’t want to miss the benefits of breastfeeding, a breast pump comes in super handy. This way, you can easily portion the amount of the extracted milk needed. Another advantage of a breast pump is that even dad can take over feeding your little one and enjoy spending time with him or her.
Breast pumps are available in simple mechanical design to the Electric Double Breast Pump Swing Maxi by Medela. At the touch of a button the pump regulates the intensity and switches modes and thus helps you increase or maintain milk production.
In order to store your valuable breast milk, either flexible breast milk bags or screw-mountable containers can come in handy. They can be piled on top of each other and prevent the milk from leaking if dropped. No matter if you choose nags or cups or containers – all of them feature a measuring scale on the margin which tells you how much milk is stored and how much you little one has already drunk.
When baby has reached six months of age, most parents start to feed supplementary food. The transition of food can be quite a challenge for both parents and child. In order to ease this step into a new stage of life, you need to be equipped with several useful things. Children’s tableware and cutlery for instance, is made of shatterproof material – this way, there will be no sharp shards if your little one has dropped any of it. A child-appropriate ergonomics ease the first steps towards eating unaided. Knife, fork and spoon adapt perfectly to children’s small hands while being created with no sharp edges and with a large handle for optimum support. A bib is perfect for keeping your little one’s clothes clean.
However, the crucial question is: What kind of food can be placed on the plate or in the bowl? At the beginning, most parents feed puree made from fruit or vegetables. If you decide to prepare baby’s food all by yourself, a food processor such as the Babycook Solo by Béaba can take over the major part of all the work. The Babycook uses steam, warms food, blends it and defrosts it, too. With this kitchen aid, preparing your child’s food has never been easier.
As soon as tiny humans get hungry, mom and dad have to hurry up. Processed baby food that comes in handy jars can be a good alternative – due to organic quality and strict controls only the best food is served. A baby food warmer such as the Thermo Ultra Rapid by NUK is the perfect choice if you wish to heat up you little one’s food in a gentle way and make sure that all nutrients are preserved. This baby food warmer can also be used when you are out and about – by using an adaptor, you can simply plug it into a 12V outlet.
The puree is prepared and the tableware is ready – in order to make your child have a good view on all interesting things going on at the table, you must not miss a practical highchair. This way, you little one is provided with the best opportunity to participate in the mealtime with the family and watch everyone sitting at the table. In order to supply your child with safe support while sitting in the highchair, most of them are equipped with a harness that prevent him from dropping out. If you own a small kitchen or are travelling, you might want to get a highchair that can be fitted easily onto the seat surface of a regular chair such as the Rialto by Peg-Perego.
Since food residues are very likely to collect germs, cleaning the dishes, baby bottles and containers properly after every meal is very important. Specially shaped brushes are perfect to reach down to the bottom of baby’s bottle while a gentle dish detergent makes the cleaning pack complete. A steriliser eliminates all germs quickly and reliably. The Digital Steam Steriliser 3 in 1 by Chicco for instance, sterilises bottles, teats, teething rings and even breast pumps.
