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.”

Lansinoh® Single Electric Breast Pump

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.

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.

Barbie and the secret door DvD #Review

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

    New Cadbury Eclairs Velvets #Review


    Last week I wrote a post to let all my lovely readers know that Cadbury will be introducing some new Velvet Éclairs to their Chocolate Éclairs collection.

    My son Callum and I are huge Éclair lovers but I have now taken a liking to the new velvet Eclairs more where as Callum is still fond of the Original ones.
    One thing I like about the Cadbury Éclair Velvets is that they are not as hard to bite in to and dont get stuck to my teeth as much as the first chocolate Éclairs. Cadbury Éclair velvets have a scrumptious smooth caramel coated with delicious Cadburys milk chocolate with a hidden chocolate centre they really are just mouth watering.

    I really have fell in love with Cadbury Éclair Velvets they have both my favourites caramel and chocolate so I give them 5/5

    Lifes been a busy one !


    Over the past few months life really has been a busy one for me and my three wonderful children having finally moved into our new house in July 2013 its been a long and bumpy ride for myself and my children. Having waited 10 years to move on and make a fresh new start away from our old two bedroom flat we use to call our home. We had so many good but also some bad memories there, so when we got our new house we couldn't wait to pack and move all our stuff into our new home. I have to admit life really couldn't be better yes there has been times the children have missed their old friends and wanted to go back but over the past months they have adjusted really well to their new surroundings. For the first few months they travelled a 45 minute journey back and fourth to their old school having lost appeal to move to a closer school, but I didn't give up till Callum and Michaela were finally moved to the school I went to as a child. They both settled in really well and made lots of new friends straight away.
    Michaela also received an award for settling in really well which was such a lovely surprise it made her feel more welcome and had the biggest smile on her face.

    Im so proud of both my children for the effort they have made to settle into a new school having had so many great friends at their old school they have had to leave behind also for getting up at 6am every morning and travelling that 45minutes to school and back by bus. I have noticed moving can have a big effect on children both mentally and physically I did notice a big change in mine but things are getting better. 
    I've been so busy focusing on my children and getting them in to a whole knew routine and working on the house ive neglected my blog but im back now and looking forward to posting lots of new reviews competitions and also keeping you up to date on how my little ones are getting on.

    Wordsearch Junior #Competition


       A brilliant way for youngsters to build their language and recognition skills!


    Now Wordsearch Junior (rrp £18.99, ages 4+, for 1-4 players) brings Drumond Park’s unique and much loved Wordsearch ‘race’ game format to a whole new generation - of youngsters.  They’ll have hours of fun playing this stimulating game - while getting to grips with language, recognition and pattern.  
    We all know children love to compete with one another… and this fun packed game will get them excited about playing with words - reinforcing the positive aspects of learning and enriching their vocabulary.
    With the emphasis placed firmly on fun, Wordsearch Junior also helps to develop young learners’ visual acuity.   The little ones can dive in straight away and search for images and patterns on the starter-level blue picture pattern cards. Here they will be developing those crucial early recognition and reasoning skills, such as sequencing and spatial awareness. 
    The next – red - level takes players through the picture hint cards – finding words with picture hints to help them in their search.  This prepares them for the green word-only cards, where they’ll be learning to look for consonant clusters and vowel combinations - increasing their reading skills without even realising it!  The vowels in the word puzzles are helpfully printed in red so children can easily distinguish them from consonants.
    Wordsearch Junior brings together the much-loved game play of wordsearch and a fun, competitive edge.  It motivates youngsters to build on their embryonic language, recognition, pattern and reasoning skills while enriching their vocabulary through exposure to letters and words.  The game is also proving to be immensely helpful to children who may be struggling with reading and language, providing a wonderful feeling of accomplishment when they succeed.  All in all, Wordsearch Junior is set to be an all round winner!
    I have been given a chance to giveaway one of Drumond Parks Wordsearch Jouniors away to one of my lucky readers so if you would like to be in with a chance of winning one for your family please Enter through the rafflecopter below:
