Happy 30th birthday to Philips AVENT, who celebrate a milestone of making newborn, baby, toddler and feeding equipment and appliances, plus gadgets such as monitors. Even before I edited a parenting magazine or wrote this blog, I was a Philips AVENT fan. In the hazy first few months of motherhood, I used the breast pumps (manual and electronic), milk storage cups, bottles and microwave steriliser. (And just between us, I used the breast pads and the breast “shells” too, possibly my best buys).


To celebrate 30 years of awesomeness, content and well-fed babies and happy moms, Philips AVENT is giving away 10 xΒ Travel Feeding Sets, worth around R280 each. These sets are great for on-the-go storage and feeding.Β Each Travel Feeding Set includes one large sectioned feeding dish, two removable small containers, and an integrated weaning spoon and suction mat to prevent spills.

The entire set can be sterilised and is both dishwasher and microwave safe.



To enter to win:

Simply comment below, and since it’s Philips AVENT’s milestone celebration, please share what your best baby/kid milestone has been. The competition closes on Friday March 28, and is only valid for South African residents. The winners will be announced on the Rattle and Mum Facebook page, and will be emailed too.

    My biggest parenting milestone so far has been my son’s first birthday. For some reason, things just seem to have gotten easier literally overnight. He sleeps better, is more independent, and I can FINALLY have a long soak in the tub again… at least every now and then, that is!

    I remember swelling with so much pride at the sight of our little guy’s first steps, that I thought I was going to burst! Instead, tears of pure joy ran from my eyes.

    Each milestone has been like that for me though, that first little squeaky cry when he was mere milliseconds old, his first awkward smile, his first word (“daddy”, but it still got me all emotional!). And now that we are baking little one #2, I thought I might faint when I saw that teeny tiny little person kicking happily in my tummy at our first ultrasound =) Once again, immense pride, joy and smudged mascara!

    Happy Birthday Avent…may you continue making our roles as parents, encouraging!
    My baby was a medical miracle that was said may not happen but it has! I have been struggling to breastfeed and I reluctantly began formula. My heart was painful but we went shopping for her first bottle and after learning and seeing different brands, I grabbed an Avent bottle. Its beautiful to look at, its friendly on the hands yet mostly, my baby embraced sucking from it immediately. She is succeeding in her first milestone – bottle feeding in a healthy stylish manner. I am also relieved that she does not experience colic and knowing Avent is advanced in assisting reduce it, id another bonus.

    We use Avent in our house and love them! Best moment with Kade is when I whisper ‘love you’ in his ear and he whispers ‘Love u too’ in my ear. With Gemma it’s when I kiss her neck and she giggles.

    Nice! My favourite milestones: With Megan, it was her first steps on her own. She was 10 months old and had really not taken to crawling, so she just got up and walked. With Michael it was going off nappies. He was 3 and one day just took off his nappy, went to the toilet and that was that. With Jack, it was his first word: Hungry. πŸ™‚ And with James, it was his first smile. I waited forever for it – he was such a very serious baby! And then, one day, he just grinned at me out of the blue!

    Mackenzie turns 2 on 28th of March and I happen to have my birthday the 27th so its very special. I loved every step of her milestones, crawling, walking, first tooth, but most special of course when she said Mama as her first word.
