OHbaby's gadget of the week
We love gadgets at OHbaby! especially when they make our life easier. Here's our pick of the best parenting technology.
We love this little German invention, it’s a Paul and Stella self-warming baby bottle that you can take anywhere. By clicking a button on the bottom the bottle it will heat up the water ready for you to add formula or heat up your breastmilk. It has a handy thermometer so you can accurately read the temperature and will keep the bottle warm for up to an hour.
And best of all it doesn't need electricity or batteries, perfect for the mum on the move

If you’ve had a glass of wine of two after a busy day it’s always a worry about how that alcohol will affect your breast milk. As everyone metabolises alcohol differently it has always been a bit of guess work. Now the with the Milkscreen testing kit you can get an answer in a few minutes.
The testing strips will tell you if your milk is safe for baby with a clear positive or negative rating. A great idea to put your mind at ease.
