yoomi bottle

Parents out there, you know how hard it can be to get a baby’s bottle warmed just right.  But now, thanks to the Yoomi bottle, you can get the temperature of a bottle of milk EXACTLY to the right temperature.

The Yoomi bottle takes up to five ounces of milk and heats it to the exact temperature of breast milk, between 32 and 34 degrees Celsius, and it does it in just one minute.  It was invented by a husband and wife duo who were desperate for a fast and easy way to heat milk.  They’d fussed with microwaves, begged hot water off waiters at restaurants, everything in between.  And then, after six years, the self-heating milk bottle was born from a sketch on a bar napkin.

Cold milk flows through heated warmer channels, thus heating the milk inside to the appropriate temperature.  Never too hot or too cold again, the unit itself can be recharged fully 100 times before needing to be replaced.  Frankly, I call this one a good idea–never again will you accidentally scald a baby with too-hot milk.  Plus, they cost around forty bucks with replacement nipples at nine bucks for a two-pack, so here’s a shower gift that can’t miss.
