Breast Milk Benefits Means Healthier Babies


MELBOURNE, Australia, January, 2012 — Parenting website Raising Children Network reveals that breastfeeding can protect babies against infection and some chronic diseases, and is linked with optimal development in early years. Breast milk is uniquely suited to the needs of infants from birth to six months and gives babies all the nutrients they need.  However some mothers feel they need to use formula if they are returning to work or simply want a night off.  One Australian invention has solved this problem for mothers by providing a simple, hygienic solution to storing and freezing breast milk.

Qubies is an efficient way to store breast milk – especially for busy mothers who need to pump breast milk and store it for later use. The award winning Qubies’ design keeps breast milk evenly portioned in 30 ml cubes making it easy to access and thaw, ready to be placed in the bottle for feeding time.

Alexandra Wardle, creator and company director of Qubies says, “Qubies is the simple way to freeze and store breast milk and baby food. Incorporating the dividers on the lid means liquids do not have to be poured into individual compartments one after the other. This ensures that food remains frost-free, doesn’t absorb any freezer smells, and also stops any food from leaking if it is tipped. All busy mums have to do is fill the tray, snap on the lid, freeze and serve.”

Beyond the immediate benefits for children, breastfeeding contributes to a lifetime of good health. According to the World Health Organisation adults who were breastfed as babies often have lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol, as well as lower rates of overweight, obesity and type-2 diabetes.

There is also evidence that people who were breastfed perform better in intelligence tests.

Breast milk naturally has these long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids which greatly improve the intellectual growth of babies:

  • Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) Is An Omega-3 Fatty Acid;
  • Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) Is An N−3 Omega-3 Fatty Acid; and
  • Α-Linolenic Acid (ALA) Is An N−3 Omega-3 Fatty Acid.

Anything that gives babies a continuous supply of breast milk and makes providing this ‘liquid gold’ easier for busy mothers is sure to be welcomed with open arms.  In fact, Qubies users are amazed at how much easier life is for them:  “My wife bought one of the Qubies at a baby expo in Brisbane and we found them so useful we bought two more. My wife has recommended them to all the mothers in her mothers group and other friends that are currently expecting.” David J, Rainworth QLD

Qubies is an ‘upside down’ ice cube tray that makes seven perfect 30 ml cubes. It is safe to use because it is BPA-free, and also phthalate-free and PVC-free.
