About 10 months ago, a Dutch company iiamo introduced the worlds’ first self-warming baby bottle, the iiamo go!
The bottle heats up to 37 degrees C (body temperature) in 4 minutes without the use of electricity.
Imagine its usefulness in long trips in the car, during outdoor outings, during long trips to the mall, at extended school or other public events and other times when you are out and about with your baby or toddler and don’t have an opportunity to heat up a bottle.

The innovative bottle is the brain child of Denmark-natives, Rasmus Schmiegelow and Nikolaj Leonhard-Hjorth. The two dads, who met in law school and had babies with their wives shortly after graduating, created the company to help out busy parents on the got! After seeing magazine ads with perfect families, the guys thought to themselves, ‘forget that! That’s not realistic!
Schmiegelow had twins and Leonhard-Hjorth had a baby who had colic. They knew that real parents who are busy and on the go need real solutions for their needs. Thus they teamed up with word renown designers Karim Rashid to design the iiamo go.
The bottle won the 2009 Chicago Athenaeum Good Design award, the I.D. magazine Annual design review and the Red Dot award.
The secret to the design is a disposable heating cartridge made up of salt and water only that inserts in the base of the bottle. Parents can easily dis-assemble the bottle for cleaning and sterilization. And as a plus, the bottles are environmentally-friendly and not made with BPA (Bisphenol-A), a harmful toxic material that many bottles world wide are made of, though some nations like Canada have banned it.
This cool and inventive bottle could be a lifesaver for many parents!
They are sold in limited online retailers including Elm Baby, a new online hub for all things baby, selling some of the top design and baby manufacturers and products made globally.
You want to get one of these to test out and help you navigate your outings with the baby! Get it at ELM BABY for $26.99, a modest price to pay to save the headache and stress of having to calm a screaming baby upset over being served cold milk!
