I remember the sound like it was only yesterday: the siren call of my daughter, crying out for a feeding in the wee hours of the morning. Even though it’s been nearly 3 years since she was born, the body doesn’t forget; I can still be on my feet in seconds, having been awaken from a deep slumber by a sleepless child. One thing I’d love to be able to forget, however, is the experience of warming a bottle of formula until it was just the right temperature. It felt like forever, especially to a little person who has no understanding of time and can only express her growing frustration. Well, that waiting can finally come to an end for today’s bottle-drinking babies. A revolutionary new drinking system is vowing to provide almost instantaneous gratification to hungry little tots everywhere. Enter yoomi, a rechargeable self-warming bottle that heats breast milk and formula to an ideal feeding temperature. It works with a special warming chamber, powered by a non-toxic gel that’s sealed inside a leak-proof chamber. One push of the chamber’s button activates the warmer, and the gel begins flowing to warm the chamber (to 86-90 degrees). Within 60 seconds, the bottle is ready for feeding and the system can remain warm for up to 1 hour. Once it’s ready to recharge, simply remove the warming unit and place in a pot of boiling water for approximately 25 minutes. When the activation button turns orange, you’re ready to use your yoomi once again. (Yoomi is rechargeable up to 100 times.) It sure beats bottle-warming the old fashioned way.
In a Nutshell: Don’t leave your little lady-in-waiting in a state of despair. Nighttime feeding can go a whole lot faster with this self-warming bottle system that lets you get back to bed for those precious zzz’s.
