Almost every parent has been there – your baby is hungry and you need to make a bottle, but she’s upset and you don’t want to put her down to do it. The bökee makes preparing a bottle with one hand easy! Here’s how it works.

What is the bökee?
The bökee is a small bottle holder that sticks to your counter and can grip a baby bottle or sippy cup, allowing you to make a bottle one handed.
The bökee holds the bottle in place while you pour in breast milk, formula, or water, and then screw on the nipple or cap.
When would you use a bökee?
I think that the bokee can come in handy in two ways.
1. Making a bottle one-handed
Here’s how I made a bottle one-handed (while holding my phone with the other):
(Video transcript: Video has no sound. Woman puts Medela bottle with breast pump parts in it in the bokee. The bottle sticks to the bokee and she twists the pump parts off one-handed and screws on the nipple.)
2. To avoid spills when cleaning up
I’ve found the bökee to be really helpful in terms of avoiding spilling your full bottle of milk when you’re done pumping.
I’ve put down the bottle from one side and then knocked it over while disconnecting the other side so many times.
If you put your full bottle in the bökee while disconnecting, it’s a lot less likely that you’ll spill it.
How does it work?
Basically, the bottom suctions down onto the counter or table, and then the silicone holder grips the bottle, holding it in place.
I found that I needed to push down on the bottle while screwing the pump parts off and the nipple on for the best results.
Can you use it after baby gets older?
Yes, you can use it to make sippy cups one-handed, too.
And then, when baby is done with sippy cups, it makes a great drink holder! I’m currently using it as a coaster to ensure my kids don’t knock over my Diet Coke (which seems to happen constantly otherwise):
Bokee Review: Bottom line
If you find yourself making bottles one-handed all the time and struggle with putting your baby down to do it OR are always knocking over pumped bottles of milk, it can come in really handy!
