With the recent October announcement of the closing of Adiri and the discontinuation of their Ultimate Nursing Bottle, newcomers mimijumi are stepping up to the natural bottle feeding plate (if such thing exists), with their Very Hungry breast shaped bottle. Check out more on this oh so pretty and functional feeder after the jump.
Although the Very Hungry bottle has some seriously stylish good looks, there was a great deal of thought behind the conception of this product. Here's a little of what they have to say about themselves:
"mimijumi, LLC was founded in January 2008 by two psychiatrists and an industrial designer with the goal of creating new products that will revolutionize the parenting process. mimijumi, LLC based in Nashville, TN is a new design company that specializes in simple, safe and natural products for the modern family. Through the design and production of infant care essentials, mimijumi products are made for both baby and parent to create the most natural experience possible. This design is based on the psychological dynamics of feeding/soothing items as transitional objects. The benefits of breastfeeding are well known, but breastfeeding is not always practical in today's society."
The Very Hungry bottle is 100% BPA-free and is more than a product aimed to capture the hearts and minds of the design world. Time, effort and extreme safety measures have been taken to release this product to the market.
The Ultimate Nursing Bottle from Adiri had a serious cult following and we expect this to fall into the same category for frustrated mothers who have the need to bottle feed, but have little ones who put up a fight! The Very Hungry bottle will be released in early December at retailers across the country. mumujumi has promised to keep their website updated with locations where you can find one near you once the line launches.
