Breast milk has tons of vitamins and nutrients that benefit your baby. However, some of those precious nutrients and vitamins are lost when breast milk is heated up in standard feeding bottles. Thankfully, nanobébé has designed a game-changing bottle specifically for breast milk. With an innovative, geometrical design, the bottle warms up the breast milk quickly without destroying its health benefits. That means more nutrients for your baby!
What’s more, nanobébé will be at the New York Baby Show on May 20 and 21, at Pier 94.
The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler.

For someone unfamiliar with nanobébé, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
We aim to improve infant nutrition and help parents give their babies the best. We developed the first feeding bottle for breast milk; it’s designed to preserve the breast milk’s nutrients. Our bottle is part of an entire ecosystem of innovative feeding products that make safe and healthy feeding a breeze, and are designed with care to look modern and sleek.
Tell us about nanobébé. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
nanobébé is the brain child of two biomedical engineers who joined forces with the former owners of Born Free, the baby bottle company that revolutionized the industry with the first BPA-free baby products, and became the top-selling bottle company in the US.
One of nanobébé’s founders came up with the idea for a breast milk bottle in 2013 when his son was a newborn. Like so many other parents, when faced with his hungry baby’s cries, he was tempted to place the bottles of breast milk his wife had prepared in boiling water in order to warm them up as quickly as possible. But when he discovered that doing so damaged the breast milk’s nutrients and vitamins, he came up with a solution rather than compromise his baby’s nutrition. That’s how the idea for the nanobébé bottle was born.
Since then, nanobébé has developed an entire ecosystem of award-winning feeding bottles and products, and has been recognized as one of the most cutting-edge companies in the field.

What sets nanobébé apart in the baby marketplace?
Ours is the first baby bottle uniquely designed for breast milk. More and more moms use breast pumps in order to combine breastfeeding with feeding breast milk from bottles. However, traditional baby bottles are far from optimal for the storing and warming of breast milk due to their cylindrical shape.
Why is our bottle optimal for breast milk? It’s all about the geometry. Thanks to the bottle’s patented design, the same amount of milk in traditional bottles spreads across a larger surface area to enable more efficient cooling and warming. The results: The bottle cools down quickly in the fridge after pumping, which reduces nutrient-damaging bacterial growth. And when your baby is hungry, you can warm up the bottle to body temp quickly and evenly without exposing milk to nutrient-damaging temperatures. The bottle warms up 2-3 times faster than traditional bottles, speeding up prep time and allowing parents to promptly feed their crying babies. Warming milk in a traditional bottle at the same rate requires exposure to much higher temperatures, which has been shown to damage the breast milk’s vitamins and nutrients.
The geometry has benefits that go beyond nutrients: bottles can be stacked in the fridge to track pumping order and save space. Babies can comfortably hold it by its concave base and self feed much earlier. The bottle has a wide base with a bottom that is covered with anti-slip silicone to prevent tip overs. And the base can be easily detached for thorough cleaning.
