25 November 2009
A new baby bottle heats itself to a particular temperature at the touch of a button.
The Yoomi is claimed to heat a baby’s feed to breast milk temperature. Manufacturer Feed Me Bottle says it takes just 60 seconds to heat formula or expressed milk.

Yoomi self-warming baby bottle
Feed Me Bottle claims the bottle, which will cost £22 for the bottle and warmer, stays warm for up to one hour, and the bottle warmer can be recharged up to 100 times. It recharges when the bottle is sterilized so requires less preparation than a standard bottle, according to the manufacturer.
Which? baby product expert Lizzy Ruffles says: ‘The Yoomi bottle has some useful features that promise to take the hassle out of feeding time.
‘As soon as we get our hands on a Yoomi we’ll be trying it out to see whether parents think it’s worth the £22 price tag.’

Yoomi baby bottle warmer
The Yoomi uses the same gel found in hand warmers to heat milk or formula, to between 32 and 34 degrees centigrade.
The feed flows from the bottle through channels on the outside of the warmer and by the time it reaches the teat it’s been heated. This whole process takes less than one minute.
The bottle will be available exclusively from John Lewis from 25 November and will cost £22 for a bottle and warmer. Additional bottles will cost £7.50, and teats are £4.50 for a pack of two.
