mOmma, a Product Review

Update: Giveaway closed. Congrats to the winner Karen H.!
This week I had the pleasure of trying out mOmma, Lansinoh's new feeding line of products. While Lansinoh's primary mission as a company is to support the breastfeeding Mother, they recognize modern Mama's may have additional product needs. The mOmma line is proud of  the following features of their product line:

* Patented NaturalWave™ Peristaltic Nipple based on over 50 years of research
* Allows baby to mimic natural sucking rhythm, reducing nipple confusion
* Wide, rounded nipple base which encourages a wider latch-on which promotes oral, facial and jaw development
* Soft and flexible 100% silicone nipple that is lined internally with specially designed grooves that are made to optimally compress and control milk flow
* Available in slow, medium and fast flow to meet baby’s changing needs
* AVS™ Air Ventilation System reduces intake of gas, a potential cause of colic or spit up
* Round bottle shape is easy and comfortable for baby to hold
* Wide design is easy to pour into and clean
* Interchangeable with mOmma® Non-Spill and Straw cup lids
* Features protective cover for leak-free, hygienic coverage on-the-go
* 100% BPA Free

     While all of the above features are positives, what I was most interested in was how my 8.5 month old baby would actually like the products. I first introduced him to the mOmma bottle. Since I am breastfeeding I gave him some water in the bottle. Much to my surprise he LOVED it.  He loved it so much that we have now been taking a bottle of water with us on hot days and he loves to hold it and drink from it. The shape of the mOmma bottle reminds me a lot of Russian nesting dolls. Very plump  and round in shape. The nipple is extremely soft and flexible. The large mouth of the bottle makes it very easy to prepare and to clean.




     The second thing we tried from the mOmma line is the sippy cup. The sippy cup is very similar in shape and configuration to the bottle. It also has a valve to prevent leakage.  This valve is a sippy cup must!  I attempted to give my son the sippy cup but he couldn't quite catch on. He chewed on, rather than sucked on, the spout. Perhaps, the mOmma sippy cup will be something good for us to try when we start the weaning process.



     The last item we trialed was the mOmma feeding spoon. The spoon has a rubbery red handle which you hold to feed the baby. The spoon rocks back and forth when you place it in front of the baby. This is both good and bad. It is a fun interactive toy for the baby, however, it also makes your feeding utensil more attractive. My baby happens to love to try to grab the spoon (any spoon) and this makes for some messy feedings indeed.

     If your baby is a more passive eater ( and not trying to swat the spoon out of your hands) then this spoon is amazing. The shorter handle allows the spoon to rest more solidly in your container of food. The actual spoon end of the utensil is wider than most baby spoons. This allows you to shovel food more easily into little hungry mouths. This spoon is also one of the only baby spoons I have seen that come with a cover. A covered spoon is wonderful for traveling or lunch out.





     Thanks for checking out my product review. Hope this helps in your search for high-quality feeding products! Thank you to Lansinoh for providing a mOmma feeding line giveaway as well as a link to a $1.00 off coupon for a mOmma bottle .


UPDATE: The giveaway has ended. Congrats to the winner,
Karen H.

  2. I've been on bedrest for over two months and while this has been going on, my toddler has regressed and started acting out, dumping her cups of drinks on the floor, and refusing to remember how to hold a spoon but instead using her hands for everything like a savage.I think she would love the spoon and sippy cup personally! It makes me sad to see her struggle with what she used to be able to do.

  6. My 7 month old LOVES to grab the spoon when I'm feeding him. Most of the time he just wants to direct it to his mouth, but sometimes it ends up on his face :)

  10. My son gets distracted when he's feeding and likes to pull my nipples along with him. It can be painful, but it also makes me laugh. He's so curious about everything. When my husband feeds him breast milk, he spits up a lot. He makes the cutest sound when he does it.

  12. I don't have a kid yet, but I have a story about my niece. I got to witness the first time she had peas. It was one of the most hilarious events. One pea would go in, and after a few seconds, one pea would come out. This give and get method of feeding is not very effective.

    1. Chris,
      Your neice sounds hilarious! Hopefully her style of eating has progressed haha. You said you dont have a kid yet? Perhaps, one on the way who can use these products?

  13. I think it is so funny (although messy) when my son sneezes when I am feeding him. It is just one of those moments that you think oh geez, not again! I know these days are numbered though so I try to enjoy every second of them!

  24. It's always a messy challenge when baby tips over the plate, bowl, or cup and the food and drink that's supposed to go into the baby instead goes all over the baby, the high chair, and the floor!

  27. Our feeding challenge is that we cannot find child spoons that are wide enough to hold food. All the spoons we've found are so small that the food falls out too easily for beginning eaters and spills all over the place! I love that this spoon is wide and easy for little hands to hold.
