Haakaa’s new range of summer essentials
We’re loving these summer months – plenty of fun in the sun with our little ones! But as exciting as beach days, water play and picnics are, babies can be significantly affected by the heat – especially when they’re teething and constantly on-the-go!
That’s why we’re loving Haakaa’s new range of summer essentials. They have plenty of solutions for creating healthy, homemade icy treats to give Bub some sweet relief from the warm sunny weather. We’ve teamed up to share some of our favourite tips for keeping it cool with the kids this summer!
BREAST MILK SOOTHERS – PERFECT FOR TEETHING BUBS!
When your little one is teething or fussing at the breast on those hot summer days, sometimes you need to be more creative in the ways you deliver their nutrition. Haakaa’s Fresh Food Feeders are not only great for introducing solids when Bub is ready, but they’re also fantastic for providing some welcome relief to your teething baby. Simply pop a cube of frozen breast milk into the silicone pouch, and baby can safely chew, suck and enjoy some cool comfort – whether they’re growing new teeth or just needing to chill down in the heat! There’s even a bonus teether on top to keep them entertained longer. But that’s not the best part! The Fresh Food Feeder is 100% silicone, which means it’s gentler on delicate little mouths and much easier to clean than other mesh feeders. That’s a Mama-win in our books.
ANYTHING POPS - IDEAL FOR OLDER BABIES, TODDLERS AND YOU!
These Haakaa Silicone Ice Pop Moulds are seriously cool. Made of 100% silicone, they’re easy, squeezy and perfect for little hands to hold! Plus, they contain none of the toxins that can leach from conventional plastic moulds. Just fill with whatever you like (toddlers love to “help!”) – our favourite combos include Greek yoghurt and banana or coconut milk and strawberry purée. Pop on the leakproof lid and freeze for a few hours – and voilà! You have healthy homemade icy treats with no hidden nasties!
ICE CUBES (WITH A TWIST)!
Not only are Haakaa’s 100% Silicone Freezer Trays perfect for freezing breast milk and baby food, but they also make awesome giant fruit cubes that are great for keeping your favourite little person hydrated. Fill with water and add berries, kiwi, lemon or orange (the possibilities are endless), put on the lid and freeze. The trays are flexible and soft, which makes removing the frozen cubes so much easier. Put them in your toddler’s drink bottle (or your own) to keep the water cool and tasty with an added hit of vitamin C.
