Nutmilk is undoubtedly best for the baby: it protects against diseases, transports important vitamins, minerals, enzymes, hormones and defenses to the baby. Often, pregnant women use a milk pump to help pump the fluid out. This is useful if the child does not take the milk from the breast, does not have enough force to suck, or the mother is working during the day and the baby can not breastfeed. Conventional milk pumps, however, are usually quite large and painful, in addition they restrict the mother completely for a few hours.
To change this, the company Willow introduced the same smart breast pump at the CES 2017 in Las Vegas. The breast-shaped device is only available in two packs – logically – and will secretly disappear in the woman’s bra, to perform quietly his work. In each device is a transparent bag that can be taken out and fit into the maximum 100 milliliters of milk. A third component of the device is the suction cup placed on the breast and the milk bag disappears.
Willow is especially discreet, mobile and can be operated without hands. Once created, mothers can take care of other things, instead of sitting around for hours and pumping the milk. Also no special bra is needed to accommodate the two milk pumps – the normal is also.
To make Willow really smart, there is of course an app, as the pump is constantly generating data. These can be viewed in the application on the mobile phone. It shows in real time how much milk has already been pumped down and past pumping sessions can be compared. You can also set reminders and alarms via the app. On the milk pump there is also a part with buttons for switching on, pausing and continuing. You can use it directly on the chest without having to access the app.
The smart breast pump will be on sale for 430 dollars this spring. If you would like to find out more, please take a look at the website of the company.
