Looking for an easy and stress-free feeding solution for preparing formula bottles? Isn't it about time that making bottles is as easy as preparing your favorite cup of coffee?

Moozi enables you to quickly soothe your baby's hunger - at the times you need it most! And say goodbye to running to the kitchen to tackle a messy, multi-step, measure and prep process while your baby cries and screams in frustration!

Moozi delivers freshly prepared formula bottles made at the touch of a button in under a minute. Now you can relax and enjoy more quiet bonding time together - and if it's 2am, go back to bed quickly and sleep!

Here are the exciting Moozi features:

Freshly prepared formula made at the touch of one button! At any time of the day or night, it couldn’t be easier to make the perfect bottle.

You want the formula that's right for your baby. With Moozi’s single-serving reusable pods, you choose whatever formula you (and your baby) prefer and how much you will use for each feeding. Each Moozi comes with 3 reusable pods. Each pod holds up to 8 oz. of powdered formula and additional pod packs are also available for purchase. We have you covered!

Safety is of utmost importance with Moozi. The water sensors ensure there is water in the tank and the water temperature is regulated. The bottle sensor alerts you if there isn’t a bottle in position. Moozi will do all of the thinking for you, so you can be stress free and focused on your little one.

Your wrist is no longer needed as the test strip for figuring out the perfect temperature bottle! Body temperature is approximately 98.6 degrees -- so is the formula made in the Moozi.

Moozi’s unique dry release system keeps the formula and water separate until they mix in the bottle. The dry environment reduces bacteria growth and keeps the system running smoothly.

Moozi is a single use formula preparation system. Your bottles are always fresh. What you put into Moozi is what you get out of Moozi, so you safely ensure consistency each and every time you use it.

Cleaning Moozi is as easy as operating it. The dispensing funnel is removable and top-rack dishwasher safe.

Parents decide what’s best for their infants. Moozi works with upright wide-neck bottles. All formula brands work in the Moozi reusable pods, so you decide what’s best for your infant and how much you need to use.

If we are able to sell enough Moozi systems to our Kickstarter fans, we'll be able to offer color choices! Check out the blue and green Moozis! What might your favorite color be? We'll be sure to survey everyone before final selections are made!

The inspiration for Moozi began over a cup of coffee after a long night with my oldest daughter, but it was Christmas Day 2011 when this incredible journey truly began. While visiting my parents and relaxing Christmas morning, I read an article in the NY Times titled, "If These Moms Can't Find It, They Invent It." Immediately I thought back to those long nights ten years ago and let my curiosity wander on Google. I couldn't believe there was still no simple solution for formula feedings on the market. How could that be? The coffee industry had proven the success of the easy single serving pod system. As a multi-tasking working mom juggling family and career, I decided to put my business mindset to work on this new venture too. It's the stress-free time-saving feeding solution I wish I had had when my girls were infants. I'm so blessed to have met and built the team to make this dream a reality.

My sweet inspiration -- my girls!
My sweet inspiration -- my girls!

We truly have a talented and experienced team in place to bring Moozi to market. We’ve been working with our manufacturing partner for several months to finalize the engineering. Here’s what’s next:

  • November 2014: Build a fantastic group of Kickstarter friends and enjoy the final design decisions together. Bright blue or lime green color options, perhaps? 
  • December 2014 & January 2015: Tool and qualify Moozi parts.
  • February 2015 & March 2015: Finalize and test pre-production units. 
  • April 2015: Manage quality assurance and secure safety certifications.  
  • May 2015: Start manufacturing Moozi!
  • May 2015 - July 2015: Ship Moozi to you and Operation Shower!

Risks and challenges

Moozi is an exciting and unique new product. In developing Moozi, safety has been at the forefront of our thinking in addition to smart engineering and design. We have a talented team of professionals with experience in everything from product development and engineering to design and marketing. Our board of advisors includes successful entrepreneurs, executives, and business start-up experts.

Here are the potential risks we are ready to tackle:

Manufacturing
Tooling accuracy and quality is essential. We are working with a global manufacturing partner who is vertically integrated and manages every stage of production, from the initial molds to the final testing, in house. There may be a short delay while we ensure tooling is perfect for mass production.

Product Adjustments
Our prototypes are amazing, but there still may be some minor adjustments to improve the final Moozi product. We will keep you posted on any refinements.

Fulfillment
We don’t anticipate delays, but there can be unplanned fulfillment issues, such as a delay on the production line, a delay in assembly due to the holidays or a delay with a shipment that is en route to us. To minimize these potential manufacturing setbacks, we have on-site team members at the factory overseeing all stages of production, assembly and logistics.

I have been told to expect some surprises along the way, but our experienced team has seen and lived through decades and decades of manufacturing experiences. We are committed to delivering the best Moozi to you, your family and your friends. Your financial support, at any level, and your help in spreading the Moozi love will make us successful. Thank you so much! We look forward to having you on our journey.
