If you have ever been pregnant, did everyone seem to ask you if you were going to be breastfeeding your new little cherub? I remember getting asked that question and while I was hoping to exclusively breastfeed J-Girl, it just didn’t happen for us. I was heartbroken but felt comforted in the fact that she was still going to be nourished and be healthy. When it was time to pick out bottles I just used what all my sisters had used for their kiddos, they did the trick but they weren’t anything to write home about! When I was asked to review the new mimijumi bottles I thought that it would just be like any other bottles on the market. I was wrong.
Getting to know mimijumi
Mimijumi was founded by a team of psychiatrists and design team with a goal of creating infant care products that revolutionize the parenting process and feeding experience. The company based in Nashville, TN strives through simple, safe design and production to create the infant care essentials for both baby and parent. The design is based on the psychological dynamics of feeding and soothing bottles as transitional objects. Their “Very Hungry” bottle was conceived as a natural, modern and stylish complement to breastfeeding moms.
Very Hungry Bottle Review
First thing that caught my attention when I opened the box was the fabulous packaging design! Being a designer myself I appreciate a fun and functional design with simple and straightforward design elements that complement the product not take away from it. Seriously though, a milk box carton is too cute! The “Very Hungry” baby bottle design is very breast-like in appearance and in texture, so that when you start with the “very Hungry” bottle your child will less likely to have problems with going from the breast to bottle.
This bottle would be ideal for bottle picky babies, newborns have gravitated to this form of feeding which is an aid to prolong the breastfeeding experience. The unique nipple used on the mimijumi bottles is more like mothers breast and the baby has to “latch” onto the bottles nipple to express milk. I think that this is a very important feature that mimijumi has honed in on as I know when I used bottles with J-Girl she didn’t have to latch on to get any milk out of the bottle, so trying to keep breastfeeding and using the bottle did not work for us in the end. I am glad to know that with the next baby I will be able to help remedy this problem using the mimijumi’s “Very Hungry” bottles.
