Why This Event Matters

At Pippeta, we emphasize that feeding should be a shared experience. It’s family time, sibling bonding, playtime, and even part of family holidays. Breastfeeding, in particular, should not be seen as just "mum’s job." Our products, such as our hands-free breast pumps and milk storage solutions, are designed to make it easier for the whole family to be involved in the feeding process.
