We recently received the Yoomi Self-Warming Bottle to review. We have used it a few times so I thought i'd share my thoughts.

I hadn't heard of the Yoomi bottle so when I heard about it I was so intrigued to find out how it worked. The bottle contains a heating element that heats milk up as it pours out of the bottle. The heating element is warm for up to an hour meaning your bottle will stay warm for an hour.

The idea is that you would have a bottle of milk that is cold/ room temperature and it heat up to body temperature. You can use breastmilk or formula with the Yoomi Self- Warming bottle.

The first thing that popped into my head when I heard about the Yoomi Self-warming bottle was the fact that I wouldn't need to get out of bed to do the night feed! I followed the instructions and sterilized and heated the heating element using the microwave. I took the bottle, heating element and a ready-made bottle of formula to bed with us. I used a ready-made as they can be stored at room temperature and I felt that making up a bottle would be a waste because it would only last 2 hours and Amelia doesn't usually wake till around 4am. She woke up and I poured the ready made into the Yoomi bottle and as instructed I pressed the button and left for 30 seconds and then I turned the bottle upside down and again left for 30 seconds and just like that the milk was ready and warm and Amelia drank it with no problems at all. I was a little worried as we've always used Mam bottles and the Yoomi is very different but she took to it right away and she drank all of her milk. I like that once you have got the heating element ready that you can use it anytime and as long as you dont press the button it will be ready. It was lovely not having to get out of bed to do the night-feed as Amelia is still sleeping next to us in our room. I liked that it was ready in 60 seconds. It's really easy to use, it's literally the push of a button.

I haven't taken it of the house yet but again the concept is great for being out and about, there's no need to worry about how your going to heat the milk up. We are planning on going for a few picnics over the next few weeks and this will be perfect to bring along so I don't have to worry about how i'm going to heat up Amelia's milk.

The Yoomi Self-warming bottle retails from £23.95* Right now they are on offer for £17.99 and include a free warmer worth £15. 

I think the bottle is fab and I really wish we had it when Amelia was younger and was feeding every few hours during the night. I think it will be fab for people who are breastfeeding and want to express some milk as it will heat the breastmilk up really easily to body temperature. I loved that I didn't have to get out of bed to feed Amelia, it heats the milk to the perfect temperature and it's so straight-forward and easy to use.
