Since my boys are getting bigger I have been thinking back to items that I could NOT have done without when I was a new mum and the Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Machine is one I always recommend new mums to buy or have on their list. My husband and I call it the Baby Nespresso machine! It’s just so easy to use!
When I was pregnant with my first son I swore I would breastfeed him and had the pump and all that came with it. But all was not plain sailing- he didn’t latch well, I was a nervous mum and I felt pressured to be able to breastfeed..after all is was the most natural thing in the world, right?!
It must have been our 2nd night home with him and he was screaming, I was crying as my nipples were literally one big sore and I felt that I was failing. My husband mentioned that we had the perfect prep machine downstairs and why not just try it as our baby needed milk. I gave in and boy was it the right thing to do! He had a teeny few ounces and fell straight asleep. I cried happy tears and we all snuggled. It turned out that my breast milk never fully came in so my baby was hungry – I was so upset. The prefect prep machine saved my sanity. I still supplemented the formula with my minuscule breast milk that I managed to pump but nothing really came in and my son was happy with the formula.
The Perfect Prep Machine is so easy to follow. It literally takes two minutes to make a bottle that is drinking temperature the baby. Cleaning it is super simple as a button will appear when you need to change the filter or clean it out. You can also use it with different brands of bottles, if needed. Just so versatile! You can make a small 4oz bottles up to 11oz bottles.
You better believe when our second son was born I was straight on the Perfect Prep because I knew it worked. There was less stress and I still supplemented with my breast milk.
My know they say breast is best…but if your situation is similar to mine then feeding your baby is best and less stress is best!
I tell every friend of mine who is pregnant with their first or even second or third baby to buy a Perfect Prep Machine and every time they love it! I’m not saying to not breast feed but if you can’t, then this is the way to go; and if you can, then this is a great way to ween or even just have as a back up.
It definitely worked for my family.
