It's not often we stop to admire the smooth sleek lines of a baby bottle as if it were a Maserati that just pulled along side us with Hugh Jackman helming the wheel, but the feeding line of Italian company mOmma has this effect. Did we mention the bottles and cups rock back and forth?

mOmma aims to bring innovation to their products and sees their bottles and cups as both functional and fun for babies to watch and play with. The bottles and cups (with sippy attachment or straw) have what the company describes as "roly poly" motion (see it here) - think Weebles wobble but they don't fall down. mOmma suggests the motion will "entertain [babies] during mealtime and stimulates their reactivity and concentration." We're pretty sure it would delight our son and make him giggle. Thankfully the bottoms are coated with rubber to make them non-skid (aka less likely to be exuberantly swatted off the table by little hands).

The bottles and cups might be the "sexiest" products in the mOmma line, but the rest are no less attractive and well-designed. The spoon and fork are also part of the roly-poly family and their main design innovation is their bulb-like handle which is easy for infants to grip.

mOmma offers two plates which are divided and shaped to prevent tipping. Interestingly the warm plate has a hole to pour hot water in to keep the meal warm - something we think is an even better idea as a warming plate for the adult whose meal has grown cold as they cajole and help their infant eat.

Based in Italy, mOmma is beginning to expand globally. The first retailer we've found in the US that carries their products is Ginsey Home Solutions where you can find the products mentioned above as well as a bottle/cup brush and three different teethers. We'll be on the lookout for more U.S. retailers and are hopeful that some might carry their bibs, placemats, the intriguing microwave safe egg cooker, soothers (pacifiers), high chairs, boosters and bags - all of which you can check out on mOmma's site.

European readers - have you used any mOmma products? What do you think?

edited: Since a few people asked, we wanted to add that, yes, these are BPA-free.
