There’s a new invention that hopes to make breastfeeding a little easier for moms by tracking the exact amount of breast milk consumed by baby after each feeding.
Pop Sugar shares that the device known as Milk Sense is a new device released by the Israeli start-up Bradley and Luca. It bills itself as a wearable device that tracks the feeding volume and amount baby eats via a wearable tracker.
To use, moms simply place the device on the breast 10 seconds before and 10 seconds after feeding baby. The device measures the volume of a part of the mammary glands known as breast alveoli using electromagnetic signals. The exact amount of breast milk ingested in millimeters is then generated.
The kit includes a scale and the device, and is available only in Israel for the time being and retails for about $200, but it could get international distribution soon.
Although it looks a little clunky to us, we suppose it could be a useful tool to track how much your baby is eating or how much milk the mother is producing, just in case.
Would you ever use this device, moms?
