About Haberman

Mandy Haberman, director and founder of Haberman, is a serial inventor best known for inventing the anywayup® cup, which was the world’s first (and still the best) non-spill toddler cup.  Her first invention, a feeder for babies born with feeding difficulties, is used in hospitals throughout the world.

Haberman’s latest innovation, the Suckle Feeder, is on course to revolutionise the baby bottle-feeding market as it encourages a slower and a more active way for babies to feed by responding to a baby’s suckling, the wave-like motion that occurs when a baby breastfeeds. Today, over 25 per cent of new mum’s don’t or can’t breastfeed and over 50 per cent aren't breastfeeding at six weeks.  The Suckle Feeder satisfies a real need as many popular vented baby bottles had been teaching babies a different way to feed, encouraging guzzling, over-feeding and unnecessary air intake.  

Mandy Haberman has been recognised by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as ‘Pioneer to the Life of the Nation’ and was named Female Inventor of the Year in 2000.
