MiLQ breast pump

Let’s get real here: nobody really enjoys the process of expressing their breast milk: the fuss, the clean up, the sound (!!) and being unable to use your hands for the duration of the pumping session. Enter MiLQ, the hands-free, rechargeable, wearable breast pump that doesn’t sound make that telltale ‘hee-haw’ sound. Assembly is easy-peasy and you can wear it while working, looking after the other kids or… doing whatever you want, really! Bonus: it’s easy to clean.

The women who created the breast pump, Nkgabiseng Motau and Mukondi Kgomo, say that they designed it to give women back what they need the most: ‘time and free hands’ – and that’s exactly what they’ve done. A big thank you from pumping moms everywhere! From R1 985 from MiLQ.

Good Night Baby

Does getting a full 8 hours of sleep sound like a pipe dream? Mommy, you’re not alone – it’s estimated that a new mom loses out on 900 hours of sleep in the first year alone. And, for many parents, the sleep deprivation cycle doesn’t improve until their child outgrows the toddler years. But it doesn’t have to be this way. While sleep training might have a bad rap, you can rest assured that it’s not the “cry it out” method of years gone by. At child and baby sleep consultancy, Good Night Baby, they know that every family (and every child) is different so there’s no generic approach that they implement to get your little one sleeping through the night – there are a variety of methods and they take all factors (including feeding, activity level, temperament, routines etc) into consideration when formulating a customised sleep plan for your family.

October is Good Night Baby’s 10th birthday…

…and to celebrate they’re running some incredible giveaways every week for the entire month – you can see what’s up for grabs and enter by visiting their Facebook and Twitter pages. For more information on services offered, visit Good Night Baby.
