Inspired by mom and designed by dad… When former award winning BMW UK design engineer Jim Shaikh and UK Litigation Lawyer Farah Butt had their 1st baby the challenges began. Jim’s role was to warm the breast milk, and it would take over 10 minutes as the baby cried, waiting for the bottle. Then the baby would drink ½ the bottle and fall back asleep; leaving ½ the bottle full with the precious breast milk wasted. Farah would cry as they poured the milk down the drain. She said to Jim, there has be a better method… You’re an engineer, can’t you create one? And the challenge to create Yoomi was taken and the world’s first self warming baby feeding bottle was born.
Hailed as one of the Top Ten British inventions of the decade, the yoomi self-warming bottle does not use electricity or batteries, but instead uses unique patented technology designed, developed & manufactured by yoomi in the UK. The yoomi range has been extended to include a unique manual & electric breastpump and a Deep Clean electric steam steriliser, offering parents flexibility and choice whether they choose to breastfeed or use formula.
From the initial humble beginnings, yoomi is now an international company with a manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom and operates in over 20 countries around the world.
