My Review:
I was sent an 8oz yoomi feeding bottle with warmer to try out with my daughter, Savannah.  We have been trying without luck to teach our daughter how to hold her own bottle since she began grasping items.  But, I think, due to her expecting us to hold it, she has gotten lazy and never tries to hold a bottle.  Even when she is really hungry, she will grab her bottle and pass it to us to hold for her, while she strokes her hair and face.  So, when I received the yoomi bottle, I wasn’t sure if this would be the bottle that changes things.  At first, it took a few tries for her to get used to the breast-shaped nipple and style of the bottle.  But, shortly thereafter, she began to cup the bottle while we held it.  And, then, right before I went in last week to deliver our 2nd daughter, something amazing happened.  One morning, when I was putting Savannah down for a nap, she picked the bottle off the table and began to hold and feed herself.  I sat there in amazement, quiet not to disturb her and make her stop, and watched as she drank from the bottle that she was holding.  It was a miracle.  What I had hoped for had finally happened, and just in the knick of time, as this achievement would help us greatly coming feeding, with a new baby in the house. 
While I was in the hospital for a few days, my husband continued to report that she was holding her yoomi bottle and also beginning to hold her other bottles.  And, by the time I returned home with Arabella, Savannah was now a “big girl” and holding her own bottle. She even tried helping us hold her sister’s bottle, too.  If it wasn’t for the yoomi bottle, I don’t think she would be holding her bottle or sippy cups.  What a lifesaver this great bottle is.  I will definitely be buying more yoomi for my two girls, as well as giving them as baby shower gifts.
In addition to being easy to hold, I especially loved the warmer feature of this bottle.  Being a busy mom on the go, and now with 2 kids, I like the added feature of the warmer, which warms a bottle of formula in 60 seconds. In order to activate the warmer, you need to charge the warmer for 25 minutes before each use.  This is the only downfall sometimes, as either one of the baby’s isn’t sleeping, so I forget to charge the warmer.  And, then both babies begin to fuss for a bottle, and I need to revert alternate warming methods or cracking open travel size formula bottles, which are at room temperature.  But, I have found the yoomi most useful when we are traveling.  Before leaving the house, I charge the warmer.  Then, when we are out, I don’t have to stop and look for hot water to warm a bottle or use the warmer we have to plug into the car lighter – which really doesn’t heat up the bottles and takes forever.  This has been a lifesaver for traveling, and in just 60 seconds our daughter has a warm bottle.
Yoomi bottles are available through their online store and come in sizes 5oz and 8oz.  You can buy the bottles separately or with a warmer.  And, gift sets are also available. Click here to begin shopping the yoomi online store.
