One of the hardest things to do as a working mom, is head back to work. To complicate things even more, moms who are exclusively breastfeeding must transition their little ones to the bottle. Finding the perfect breast pump is one thing, but finding a bottle with a nipple that closely mimics a mother’s breast, is just as important. In fact, one of my girlfriends is getting ready to head back to work on Monday, and her beautiful little princess simply refuses to take milk from a bottle. In fact Mom has tried over 10 different popular bottle styles and brands, sippy cups, regular cups–she’s tried everything! Everything but mimijumi that is.
I have never used a mimijumi bottle personally (or for my kiddos), but saw them for the first time a couple weeks back when Anthony Sabato Junior was shown feeding his baby boy on Celebrity Wife Swap. As moms we know how it goes when we’ve “tried everything” and nothing seems to be working, so I gave her the name and am anxious to hear how mimijumi bottles work for her. I am excited to offer one of our Happy Hour Moms a chance to try them out too!
