mimijumi bottles – Helps baby switch from breast to bottle with ease – review

I know that breastmilk is best for our little ones and I am all about doing what is best for our children. That is why I have nursed two of the three of my kids. My first child and I just couldn’t handle it emotionally but my other two have been great. And I know that nursing isn’t for everyone but for those of us who do nurse our children, sometimes there comes the problem of switching to a bottle. Whether it be for a weekly babysitter or because we are weaning them this proves to be a challenge for some babies. At mimjumi they know this all to well and have designed a modern type of baby bottle that eases the transition between breast and bottle.

mimijumi is based in Nashville, Tennessee and is a desing company that specializes in simple, safe and natural products for the modern family.  They designed a bottle made for both baby and parent.  Their first product the “Very Hungry” bottle is designed through sight and touch to be breast-like in apperance and texture.  It is ideal for bottle picky babies and newborns to aid in prolonging breastfeeding.  The unique nipple is more like a breast so the baby will latch onto just as they would their mother.  This is key when making the transition since the baby must latch on to the nipple to make the mimijumi bottle express milk.

We tried the mimijumi Very Hungry bottle on my two week old baby and she did just fine.  She took from the bottle and then she still took from me.  She didn’t seem to have any problems being confused with switching between the two.  She does take a binky and doesn’t have any problems with nipple confusion so I don’t know if that helps.  I don’t know if it came out to fast or if she didn’t swallow fast enough becuase it kept dribbling out the side of her mouth but she still did just fine with it.  Also, I don’t know what will happen when I continue to use the bottle, whether she will prefer the bottle or me, but I don’t think that she will become picky to one way of eating or another.  At least I hope not!  I really liked that the bottom has a non-skid base.  It makes it easy to fill and you don’t have to worry about spilling it.  Also the nipple is very soft and flexable.  Very life like if that make sense.  She did have a few more burps than usual but I think that’s normal when you use a bottle.  Over all I really liked the bottle.  It has a very simple look but very modern.  I like that it has color on it.  The red is fun and playful.  Most bottles are just clear with white on them so this bottle is fun.

If your looking for a new bottle I would suggest checking into the mimjumi bottles.  It is a great design and it seemed to work great with my little one.  You can purchase them online here.

  1. I am agree with with you in this opinion that breast-milk is best for child. It has not any exchange. I have seen that you have discovered a bottle like breast. Its a good product. But why in exchange of mother-breast? Thanks, Wyatt
