Hot off the press! Elvie has this week launched two amazing new products to the market, the Curve and the Catch.
The new Elvie Curve is a silicone breast pump designed to be worn in your bra to gently express milk whenever your breasts feel full or when you let-down while feeding or pumping your other breast. This is great for mamas wanting to express milk with next to no effort while they breastfeed so that no milk goes to waste when they let down.
The Elvie Catch is designed for discreet milk collection with slip-proof security to help prevent leaks. You just slip them into your bra onto your nipple and leave. These are especially beneficial for women who experience heavy leaking, or for women earlier in their breastfeeding journey and are still in the leaky phase. The Elvie Catch easily collects those precious drops of breast milk, meaning you can use them if you’d like to top up a feed, or perhaps even add into your baby’s bath.

Families can enjoy a trail around Kew Gardens Arboretum as the ‘little brown mouse’ to track down the Gruffalo and the other much-loved characters in the best-selling book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. With the help of a guide, children can follow the tracks of each animal leading them to the characters’ hiding spots.
Visitors are encouraged to come to Kew Gardens donning their own face-painted whiskers, ready to step into the role of the little brown mouse. On your way to find the Gruffalo, you’ll come across fox footprints, an owl feather xylophone, and a snakeskin gong inspired by the story, while you learn more about the characteristics of each of these animals as they go.
Besides the Owl, the Fox and the Snake, you’ll spot all sorts of other wildlife and enjoy the autumn landscape your adventure unfolds. Kew Garden is home to 14,000 trees, and all will become immersed in the world of The Gruffalo.
Brave explorers might even get the chance to encounter The Gruffalo himself in the form of a costumed character making timed appearances throughout the half-term period.
