How it works

In the last few years, there are many products that were invented and all of them try to ease the busy life of parents who are trying to juggle between all the tasks at work, family and personal affairs. We are sure you have thought many times of the possibility of what you could have done if you had one more extra hand. The inventor of the Beebo has also thought of giving this extra help to the busy parents and mothers and fathers who love multitasking while having to feed their babies at the same time.  On the other hand, there are lots of people who are asking themselves, if we had become so lazy that we cannot hold the bottle for our babies anymore and why do we actually need products that can hold the bottles so we can be hands-free? Yet the bottle holders are products that reflect our busy and hectic lives and especially if you have a family with three and more kids you know how difficult it can be if you are alone most of the time at home with the kids and how wonderful it can be if you had an extra hand with the bottle feeding. These bottle holders offer a simple way of nursing the babies and bigger freedom of movement for the parents. Check out the today’s review of the Beebo Bottle Holder, a product that stirred the public after it appeared in Shark Tank and was tried out by Ashton Kutcher and see what is the product all about it.

Product description

Product description

Beebo represents a type of accessory used for bottle feeding and it is pretty cool because its design is really simple for use. All you have to do is just throw it over the shoulder, put any bottle for feeding in it and your hands are free to hold the baby. It is a very light product because it weighs only 1.61 pounds, and it comes in dimensions of 7.9 x 6.8 x 6.8 inches. Some of the features of this product are that it can work with any bottle -glass or plastic and with different sizes of baby bottles. It has a grippy side so when you put it over your shoulder it will not slide. The place where you put the bottle can rotate an entire circle for you to find the best angle for the feeding of the baby. As it is a lightweight product, even when you put the bottle full of milk because of its design it is still comfortable for the shoulder. It is a product that represents a simple but smart design. It consists of a pad with a loop at the end of it for convenient storage and a detachable bottle holder. The name Beebo is imprinted in the product. All the colors are neutral and in this context, this is a gender-neutral product. The particular product that we are reviewing today is in teal color but there is also one in a charcoal color. The Amazon offers two options - original one that is the old version and the newer ones, and one of the changes that were updated in the newer versions is the size and dimensions, meaning that the older versions were bulkier than the newer ones. Except for the difference we could not find any other that influence the use and the product itself. The product is made in China but the concept was invented or better said designed in the USA.
Who is it for?

Who is it for?

This product is especially popular with families who have twins or multiples or families with more children and especially if the children are very close in age but still less than three years old and of course for all the multitasking mothers out there. The Beebo product resembles the process of breastfeeding, mostly because of the position, but now, in this case, the fathers or any of the caregivers can also join and take part in the bottle feeding of the baby. It can be a great product for those busy and hectic days when you have to feed the baby multiple times during the day but take care of your toddler too. This is like an extra hand offering help. It is also very convenient if you have a jealous toddler who is persistent about asking things the moment you start feeding the baby so now this product can help with the bottle feeding while you can use the other hand to hand things to your other child so he/she does not feel left out. This product is also appreciated much by parents who have medical conditions such as restricted use of arms, arthritis or related problems with the arms and in this state, it is a welcomed product. Mostly it is purchased by parents who bottle feed their babies, although if you are breastfeeding you are not excluded as a customer too. Regarding the age of the kids who use this product, it is safe to use it with newborns and of course, there is no limit to the age but once the babies start being able to hold their bottles by themselves this product’s service is no longer needed.
Materials

Materials

The Beebo is made of a material that looks like rubber and what is more important is that it is safe for the child as the material is BPA free as well as PVC free. The material also does not contain any lead or phthalates. The bottle holder that is rotatable is easily squeezable and it is made of foam. The foam is squishy and very soft as well as watertight at the same time because in this way (because of the foam) it can hold bottles of many different sizes and forms. The material is so easy to clean and if you want to take this product with you or you just simply want to store it for further use you will have to roll it up and you are ready to go. It does not take time or space. If you decide not to roll it up, you can hang this product as it has a loop for hanging. One other thing that is also great is that the bottle holder can be removed from the shoulder part, which makes the maintenance easier and more convenient. The attachment and detachment of the bottle holder to the other part is very easy and it is done by simple pushing of the clip up or down in dependence on the activity you want to do, that is either attach or detach the parts.

Ease of use

Ease of use

The bottle holder is an easy product for use. The first thing that you have to is to put the Beebo over your shoulder with the grippy part from the inside so you can be sure that the Beebo will not slide off from your shoulder and hurt the baby. The next step is to insert the bottle in the holder and to rotate it until you find the right angle for feeding of your child. When you are ready with the feeding you can rotate the bottle again to an upright position to allow the baby to burp. The customers who have used these products generally have complaints and remarks about the part of finding the right angle for comfortable feeding the child. There are many complaints which say that it is rather impossible to find out which is the proper angle so you kinda keep rotating the bottle holder and that it takes a relatively great amount of time to position the baby and the bottle right. However, you should always hold the baby on the same side with the Beebo. The incorrect angle results in milk leaking and spilled milk on the face and of course, a crying baby that is hungry and hard to settle. This product is extremely portable and fold and you can literally fit it in a diaper bag.
Safety

Safety

The product is approved by the pediatricians and it is safe for use. The grippy side helps a lot for non-sliding and on the back of the pad, there is a counterweight that also contributes to the Beebo to stay on the shoulder. However, many of the customers agree that it would have been nicer if there were some adjustable straps that will allow more personalized and adjustable position for different body structure and size. The materials that the product is made of are safe and child-friendly. The safety concerns are usually raised for the bottle holders which hold the bottle completely and the parents are both hands-free, but in this case, with the Beebo you are mostly using it with a newborn that cannot be left unattended and you still use one hand for holding the baby. The experience that this product wants to create with the bottle feeding is just as in the breastfeeding where the mothers who nurse use one hand for holding the baby but their other hand is free. So regarding the safety of this product, there are no concerns.
Comfort

Comfort

Many parents are asking themselves if this product will be comfortable for them as well as for their babies. The product has an ergonomic design and it is really nice that there are no straps or clips that secure the product to the person’s shoulder. For a comfortable feeding, you will also have to find the right position for the baby, too. The Beebo itself is soft and not heavy for the shoulder and on the plus side, it is very flexible so that it provides a secure fit. It offers comfort for the parents because they do not have to hold their hand in one freezing position but now are hands-free and use one hand to hold the baby and the other hand is free for patting or just helping the other child. The Beebo helps in this part because it provides one stable angle that is consistent at all times of the feeding and in this case the baby has to be in an upright position which is an advisable position for feeding. The customers who have used the product claim that it is much easier and convenient to be carried by women who are much flatter chested and men.
Maintenance

Maintenance

Although the material is like rubber the manufacturer strictly advises while taking care of the product not to put it in a dishwasher. This product cannot be also submerged in water but after you detach the bottle holder and the other part- the pad you can clean them with warm water and a gentle cloth using mild soap. It is very easy to clean the product and it can be done in a second. The product is made of materials that are stain resistant and does not absorb liquids. The colors also do not fade away and it seems to be of durable quality. The foam of the bottle holder is watertight and soft. The customers usually do not have any remarks about the quality of the material and the durability of the product but they rather refer their complaints to the performance.
Value

Value

This product can really be a lifesaver for some parents especially the ones who suffer from a certain medical condition like arthritis and have a pain in the arms especially if they keep the hands in one position. Thus it is a valuable product whose price tag is not on the high end. It can be purchased for less than 30 dollars and although it is shipped within the USA this product is not shipped internationally. However, many of the parents who tried using the product feel that it is a waste of money and time as the concept seem nicely imagined and smart but in reality, it can be an awkward product to use. However, if you are in a need of extra help on daily basis for the bottle feeding (a couple of times during the day) this is an extremely small price to pay and it is definitely worth the try.

Bottom line

If you are looking for an extra hand to help you in the process of bottle feeding you have found the possible perfect solution. Beebo is an accessory that can be used to assist the multitasking parents to bottle feed their babies, hold them and at the same time have one hand free to do the third activity. Beebo is a safe item for babies which comes in neutral colors that are gender-neutral. It is very simple to use and maintain and it is made of high-quality materials that are not harmful to the gentle babies’ skin. It is an ergonomic pad that can be placed on your shoulder and a detachable bottle holder that fits all brands of baby bottles in various sizes due to the foam material. The holder can rotate all around to find the perfect angle for feeding the baby. Once the baby had enough and he/she is ready to burb you just rotate the bottle in upright position. Interesting design that is offered for a price that is affordable.
