The Office for Product Safety and Standards has issued an Urgent Safety Alert for baby self-feeding pillows and is urging the public to stop using them immediately and dispose of them safely.
Self-feeding pillows/prop feeders present a risk of serious harm or death from choking or aspiration pneumonia.
Talking through your feeding choices with your health visitor and your partner can help you feel more confident that the choices you are making work best for you and your babies. You can also contact Twinline or Twins Trust's breastfeeding peer supporters to help you work through your options.
If your babies are born early, are unwell or are not putting on weight, ask your health professional for guidance on how and when to feed your babies.
Some parents find that developing a routine of some sort works well for them and their babies, while others find they prefer to 'go with the flow' - it's your choice.
