mimijumi's blog: Better Feeding for all Babies

Is BPA and BPS Free Enough for Your Family?

October 17, 2016

I don’t know about you, but these days I’m hearing I need to ditch everything from my mascara to my body lotion to storage containers and cleaning supplies. Many friends have bought in (and taking me with them) to their biz of hawking a safer, better, more natural, chemical-free alternative to virtually everything. I keep trying to convince my husband that all these new memberships and monthly charges are SO worth it to keep our family and children from literally DYING from exposure to all these “environmental hazards”. He doesn’t seem to have the same sense of urgency… weird.

Baby Number 2 Doesn't Make Me an "Expert".

September 28, 2016

I admit it:  Second time mothers think they know everything. If something worked well or well enough with the first child, we plan to give the second the same treatment and not change a thing. But let’s face it—this would only work if nothing were different. Something is always different.

I was a NICU mother with my first child.  Having spent critical ‘latching’ weeks in the NICU, my first newborn just wasn’t interested in breastfeeding when she was released.  When she finally came home, I was happy just to have her in my arms and I wasn’t going to insist on breastfeeding. We had all been through enough.

My second baby latched immediately and breastfeeding was quickly established.  Already, we were in uncharted parenting waters.  This baby would feed almost exclusively from me. While I obliged, we had two factors to consider.  First of all, I would be going back to work soon.  Second, my husband, who had bonded so nicely with our first baby, felt detached with our second little bundle of joy because he wasn’t involved in the feeding routine.  A bottle would definitely need to be part of the mix.

"Baby bottles are a huge career issue” says Penelope Trunk

September 15, 2016


Popular career-advice author Penelope Trunk recently featured mimijumi baby bottles and why they are a godsend for mothers. 

“Feeding a baby is a huge issue for women who have a 9-5 job. Or any job, really.

When I breastfed my sons my life revolved around making sure there was milk. If women cannot put breastmilk in a bottle for someone else to feed the baby, then they can never wrestle themselves from the baby.

Baby bottles don’t work for women if the baby won’t go back to the breast after an easy speedy bottle.

Baby bottles are a huge career issue."  - Penelope

Why I Never Lost Faith in Penelope Trunk

September 12, 2016


Thank you, Penelope, for finding a compelling way to tell the mimijumi story as only you could.

When I first contacted you, I wanted you to write about our bottles because I admire your unique voice. 

Or as I wrote at the time:

I've always enjoyed your direct, no-nonsense attitude. See problem. Address problem. See next problem (sometimes caused by attempt to solve original problem). Address problem. Rinse. Repeat.”

Planes, Trains, and Breast Pumps

August 05, 2016


I’m the VP of sales at mimijumi and a new mom to a five-month-old daughter. I recently returned from maternity leave and took my first work trip away from my daughter. Let me tell you – I give a shout out to all the travelling mommas out there; it is no joke! From scheduling when to pump, figuring out appropriate outfits you can wear to pump at work, flying with breastmilk and all the supplies, dealing with security lines and rude agents, sharing a hotel room with a non-pumping colleague and just being away from your baby in general, it is all so hard! Here’s my experience and some tips I learned.

Choosing to Exclusively Pump

August 03, 2016


My name is Laura Deznan, although many people know me better as @theexclusivepumpingmom.  I have been blessed with two amazing girls, and each of them has led me on a pumping journey. While most people may think of exclusive pumping as a choice, I know that to many moms it wasn't a choice at all.

The Safe Baby Bottle: BPS, BPA, & EA Free

TheBabyGuyNYC with Mimijumi.

July 18 at 10:56am

Good morning! I've been DEEP in rehearsals in Into the Woods here, so I apologize for how quiet is was this weekend.....gotta learn those lines!!

However, today we thought we'd show you a bottle line from mimijumi. They've been around for a few years now and have a pretty loyal following. They're easy to clean, easy to tell which nipple flow you're using, and they're much cuter than your regular ol' cylinder bottles not to mention they are an extremely safe baby bottle.
