Healthcare experts like you who are in contact with new mothers are uniquely positioned to assist women in making informed decisions regarding the breastfeeding of their baby1. Philips supports you in that effort. We are committed to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) goals, which aim to ensure optimal growth, development, and health of babies, by initiating breastfeeding within one hour of birth and continuing for at least 6 months2.
Upon your advice, new parents will have access to products that have been developed through extensive research, clinical trials, and by listening to new moms and professionals. In addition Philips provides training and parental support tools for ongoing education. Whether breastfeeding, bottle feeding, or combining the two, Philips Avent is here to help give every baby a strong start and set the stage for a healthy future.
The benefits of breastmilk have been proven critical for healthy development of newborn babies. The ability to express breastmilk can be invaluable in supporting and prolonging a mother’s ability to breastfeed. Our clinically tested products are created with in-depth knowledge of breastfeeding and milk expression.
Bottle design may have a positive effect on infant behavior and maternal satisfaction, both of which are likely to be of importance to parents. Our clinically tested bottles provide infants with an intuitive feeding experience that is as close to breastfeeding as possible.
We’re constantly collecting interesting and educational resource materials – including clinical studies, infographics and parent guides. Feel free to download anything you need, and keep an eye out for new downloads.
Dedicated to helping mothers breastfeed longer
At Philips Avent, we are dedicated to helping mothers breastfeed longer because we recognise the importance of breastfeeding for the healthy development of the infant and the health of the mother.
To give babies the healthiest start in life, we support the WHO recommendations1 and the recently reaffirmed AAP guidelines2 to help mothers aim for 6 months of exclusive breastfeeding and continued breastfeeding onwards while other foods are being introduced. We provide parents with educational materials, online forums, professional support and evidence-based products; and we work with healthcare professionals to support them in helping parents achieve breastfeeding success.
