    This would mean that 2 amazing friends of mine would have something they really need.. Struggling with a brand new baby, the stress of not being able to breast feed.. These people are amazing and would help anyone, including strangers. I’d love to give them something <3

    I love all of closer to natures items! Being due with number 3 in a few weeks and not being able to successfully breastfeed my first two, this item would bring a peace of mind to a very stressful time, and even daddy can operate it 🙂

    I am constantly overheating the milk in the microwave while the little one is screaming. This would save me waiting forever for the milk to cool while dealing with an unhappy little man!

    I’d love to win this for my sister in law for when she has her next baby. She doesn’t have a choice to bottle feed after going through breast cancer at age 23. This would help to make life a lot easier!

    This machine is a god send, no more spilling the formula in the middle of the night coz your eyes are too stubborn to open due to sleep deprivation. This is pure intelligence, the perfect gift for any mum with a baby or a mum to be.

    Will make sure bubba gets milk at the right and safe temp each time.

    This would mean the ultimate gift for my niece having her first bub very soon- as a mum of three myself i understand the time and prep required to make bubs bottles, i would love to win this to give to her, i only wish it were around when i had my bubs!!! its fantastic!

    It would be such a help especially when your dealing with a 3 year old as well. Any help is good help.

    If my second is anything like my firstborn was, I will be up multiple times a night and also having a 3.5 yr old who doesn’t love sleep, will help make the night time feeds as painless as possible. Would also make it easy for my hubby to help with the night time feeds!

    It will mean I can make the transition from breastfeeding to formula smoother – I have had a horrendous time with breastfeeding so anything to make it easier from here on would be a lifesaver!

    My BFF is having a bubba and this would be a great baby shower gift for her!

    It would mean more time with my babies, which has been in short supply lately. I have a nearly 2 year old (who was 9 weeks early) and a 12 week old new born (who is really only 38 weeks today after being born at 25 weeks, was touch and go for me and him), but he will hopefully be home from the hospital in 2 weeks. I have the Mum guilts big time for having to share my time between them. It will be great when we are all in one spot and my little ones can have all my attention at home.

    No more burning myself with the kettle while pouring bottles while asleep on my feet in the wee hours.

    Having this would mean peace of mind and more time to relax and bond with my daughter!

  42. Avatar of taniiah

    I’m 23 and haven’t had any baby interactions until this year. My sister has two babies under 1 and I’m often over to help out. This would relieve some stress for me and my sister, and quicken the bottle preparing process so we can get some nutrients into those little bodies as soon as possible.

    It would mean the world to me as it would help my nephew live a better and fulfilling life with a healthy start with the prep machine.

    As I go back to work, Hubby will be a stay at home dad to a 5 month old and a 5 year old. This will certainly help him out between house work and school runs. Help a fella out and promote Daddies taking care of their babies!

    This would have been so great for my middle child who was on prescription formula for 5 years for medical reasons (failure to thrive), not to mention my other 2 who also couldn’t be breast-fed. I would love this for my sister, as chances are she won’t be able to breast feed it seems to run in the family and this would be awesome to gift to her to make her changes to mummy hood a little easier when the time comes.

    This would mean the hubster wouldn’t get kerfluffed in the middle of the night trying to do it in the dark and make a mess of the bench 😛
    End result I get to sleep, he doesn’t stress, bub gets food faster and no mess to clean up….bonus for all of us 🙂

    A Closer to Nature Perfect Prep Machine,
    Would mean, fewer bottles to sterilise and clean.
    More time spent with the bubby,
    Looks simple to use, even by a hubby.
    Night feeds when not fully awake,
    Means I’m less likely to make a mistake.
    With Closer to Nature baby is quickly fed
    And mummy can get right back to bed!

    Less time to prepare bottles = more sleep. That’s never a bad thing
