I’ve only left Johnny twice so far and I’d say one of the negatives of breastfeeding is that I can’t just leave him on the spare of the moment, I have to make sure there’s enough milk for him. Of course it’s no problem as I know when I’ll be going out and thanks to the Tommee Tippee Express and Go products, expressing milk is so much easier than I thought it’d be. I normally express first thing in a morning whilst feeding Johnny at the same time.
I was originally sent the warmer* but after looking into the whole set I ordered the other items in the collection. Basically, you can pump straight into the pouches, freeze them or just keep them in the fridge if you’re using them soon and then attach the pouch to the bottle. You can use the system with any pump too, you just need to buy the adapters. I have the automatic Tommee Tippee breast pump and I’d highly recommend it as it’s really simple to use.
The warmer can be used with pouches or bottles so if your baby isn’t keen on cold milk as they’re used to room temperature from the source then this is great. Also, if you haven’t got enough milk out of the freezer and baby needs more, frozen milk can also be defrosted in the warmer.
It used to be quite messy pumping into a pouch and then having to transfer it into a bottle so the pouch bottle is perfect as you can still use the Tommee Tippee teats from their normal bottles. The pouches come in a pack of 20 so it’s enough if you need a good backup supply! You can also buy a storage case so they aren’t scattered around the freezer like mine but that’s not a necessity. If you feel this is something you’re interested in, it’s cheaper to buy the full Express and Go set as it contains the warmer, adapters, 20 pouches, the pouch bottle with 4 teats and the storage case. Breastfeeding can be challenging but these products really have made it a little easier.
Do you find anything helps with expressing for your little one?
Ta Ta for now,
