Important notice to customers — product packaging changesLearn More


From August 2018, customers will notice our rebranded food packaging start to appear on shelf in all major stockists.

  • CURRENT Packaging
  • new Packaging

We are excited to announce our new packaging will start to appear on shelf from August 2018. This transition to new packaging will occur over a number of months. During this time there will be a mix of current and new packaging on shelf.

There are no major changes to these products, in some instances there is a small name change or slight recipe improvement, see below for the full details.

Products purchased via the website will be delivered to customers in our old packaging until the end of October. From November, products ordered from the website will be delivered in the new packaging.

Please note, our Infant Formula packaging will not be rebranded until later in 2019.

Midwife Cath’s Ultimate Hospital List

Packing your hospital bag is a bit like packing for a holiday in a foreign, exotic country that you know nothing about. Does the baby really need so many onesies? (yes). Do I really need to buy maternity pads when I’ve got a whole box of regular ones at home (yes, you do). Will I really wear those ENORMOUS high waisted knickers (oh, yes). This may seem like a lot but you’ll be grateful when the little one arrives and you have everything organised.

Here’s the checklist I give to all my prospective mums:


  • 4 pairs of stretchy pants in a dark colour. Make sure the waistband is soft and comfortable
  • 4 tee shirt tops that allow for easy breastfeeding
  • 4-6 pairs of black underpants (make them high waisted so that if you have a c-section, they won’t dig into your scar)
  • 3 soft, well-fitting nursing bras
  • 1 packet of nursing pads for leaking breasts
  • 3 packets of maternity pads
  • Comfortable slip on shoes or slippers
  • Pyjamas for night feeding
  • Toiletries- toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, shampoo, deodorant.


  • 7 soft, onesies with zips – anything else is too challenging
  • 7 singlets
  • 7 large muslin wraps
  • 2 hats
  • 1 set of going home clothes
  • 1 soft nail file for baby’s nails
  • 1 packet of disposable nappies (in case the hospital doesn’t provide them)
  • 1 packet of baby wipes (as above)
  • Formula and bottles (these are supplied by all hospitals)


  • Blood group card
  • Any relevant correspondence from your doctor, for example your Group B strep status
  • Change of clothes for your partner
  • Chargers/ battery for phones laptops, camera etc
  • Tote bag for dirty washing

Important Notice to Parents and Guardians

  • The World Health Organisation recommends that breastfeeding is best for your baby.
  • Having a balanced diet when breastfeeding is also important. Infant Formulas should only be used after you’ve sought advice from a doctor or health practitioner.
  • A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse and introducing partial bottle feeding may reduce the supply of breast milk. It is also wise to consider the cost of infant formula.
  • If you use infant formula, all preparation and feeding instructions must be followed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important for your baby’s health.
