    Feeding time, whether by breast or bottle, is one of the most tender and special times you’ll have with your baby. These moments progress into something more familiar faster than expect – a setting around a table where the whole family is together and lots of learning and social interaction takes place. Here are our top tips:

    Clean baby bottles

    Baby bottles and teats should be sterilised every time you use them. Newborns are particularly vulnerable to bacteria. Some bottles offer self-sterilisation.

    Anti-colic bottles

    It would be a good idea to consider these if your baby is suffering from colic (uncontrollable crying). These bottles are designed to reduce the amount of air a baby takes in whilst feeding.

    BPA

    BPA (Bisphenol-A) is a chemical that is found in baby feeding bottles that are made of Polycarbonate plastic material. It is believed that BPA can leach out of Polycarbonate plastic bottles into baby’s milk and cause problems such as diabetes, breast cancer and hyperactivity in the baby’s adult life. Its best to chose products that are certified BPA free.

    Sippy cups

    A great way to encourage independence. As they grow they want to become more like us so why not encourage them to drink by themselves from their own cup. Some children may take a while before taking to a sippy cup but introducing different types and styles may do the trick.

    Gadgets

    It is important to give baby and you a comfortable, uninterrupted moment together to get the most of out feeding. Think about time and energy saving gadgets like breast pumps, bottle prep machines and food processors for later down the line. Such gadgets can make life a lot easier.

    There is a palpable sense of confusion and now anger. There is no coordinated efforts from the council to organise people or the thousands of donations coming in. It's chaotic. . . The community have taken the lead and are providing all the support and assistance. Police are stopping people without wristbands in certain areas. . Information is slow in coming through and families affected are starting to question what's going on. "17 dead, come on!" The media aren't reporting a lot of what has and is happening, like the Muslim boys returning home from Ramadan prayers who pushed past the police to get people out. . kids talking about where their friends are, and there are a very concerning number of kids missing from classrooms. A mother told us yesterday that it "simply doesn't make sense". . Our PM has announced a Public Inquiry, when in fact it's an INQUEST that is needed. The former is government lead and the latter gives a voice to the victims. . These people have been let down BEFORE, DURING and now AFTER this horrific incident. Is it because they're poor? It seems as though this is very much a class and race issue? Is it a tipping point? I hope so. . . #grenfelltowerfire #realheroes #glenfelltower #communitylove #change #togetherwecanmakeadifference #forthemanynotthefew #londonfire #londoner #london4all #thisislondon #londonist #speakout #justiceforall #latimerroad #northkensington #communityspirit #seektruth #equalityforall #inquestnotinquiry #endausterity #peopleoverprofit
