Sustainability Aspects: Self-warming baby feeding bottle warms up milk without chemicals, electricity


Iiamo Go is a self-warming baby feeding bottle. It is the only feeding bottle in the world that can warm up 180 ml of milk to the recommended 37°C (body temperature) in only 4 minutes – without the use of electricity.

Once it’s ready simply give the bottle a little shake to distribute heat evenly as you would normally. Always fill the bottle completely to ensure the milk heats up to 37°C. Milk will remain warm for up to 30 minutes.

This fantastic feeding bottle makes it easy to feed baby no matter where the family is; in the car, in the supermarket, in a cafe, at the park or on a plane!

How does iiamo work – Iiamo Warm disposable ‘heating’ cartridges are inserted into the base of the feeding bottle. These cartridges contain water and salt that mix together when it’s activated and provide energy to heat the milk or formula in the bottle. Iiamo Go is made from 100% BPA Free material and also has a built-in anti-colic airing system. The bottle comes apart making it easy to clean so you can be completely certain that there will be no old leftovers and bacteria from the previous feed. Iiamo Go is dishwasher safe and also withstands boiling, however, because of the stainless steel in the base, it is NOT microwave safe.

iiamo warm contains only salt and water – The warming effect originates from the rehydration of dried salt, meaning that salt and water are mixed to salt water, releasing energy. This leaves just salt water and heating for your child’s milk.

The only thing one could wish for is that it would be possible just to pour in a spoon of salt en some water instead of using the warming capsules which creates packaging waste
