Hi my name’s Mel a born and bred kiwi, living my best life with my family in Auckland, NZ. Mum to Levi & Sophie, Wife to Clinton and the proud owner of Boob or Bottle.


My motivation? I was a mum whose feeding journeys did not go to plan; it wasn’t easy or natural right from the start. I admit, I really struggled early on, and I can’t believe that I fed Sophie to 25 months and counting. Low milk supply, premature babies, tongue-ties, anxiety, the list goes on. I had a 2kg premature baby that had a tongue-tie that was released twice. I managed to increase my low milk supply and maintain it using both techniques and quality lactation boosters, which I personally recommend.


I was a bottle-feeding and breastfeeding mum who found it difficult to find a place for supplies and support that understood everyone’s journey is different.  At the end of the day, we all want what’s best for our babies.


Boob or Bottle, a NZ owned and operated business is here to help you. We’ve taken the guessing out of choosing by carefully selecting quality supplies for you and your family.


Having a new baby is one of the most amazing and rewarding times in your life, but lets face it – its also immensely challenging.  I must remind you, you’re doing an amazing job, and you’ve got this mama.
