nfant®, the leading provider of FDA-approved smart feeding solutions to pediatric hospitals, revealed today the first home-based smart infant feeding solution at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
“The nfant Thrive Feeding System applies cutting-edge smart technology that takes baby feeding from guesswork to a science,” said nfant co-founder and CEO Tommy Cunningham, Ph.D. “It will provide moms, dads and caregivers with expert guidance to optimize baby feeding and their care providers with timely analytics to measure thriving and development over the critical first year of life.”
The nfant Thrive Feeding System will support either bottle or breastfeeding. The bottle uses specially designed high-quality nipples with a sensor that measures baby-feeding activity. The sensor output is conveyed via Bluetooth to a smartphone app showing mothers and care providers exactly how the baby is feeding and responds to changes in nipple flow or feeding position. For breastfeeding, silicone pads placed on the breast during feeding connect to the nfant Smart Sensor and Tracker App to convey real-time data on feeding activity and volume consumed.
