Know Your Baby: The Smart Breastfeeding Meter!6:56 PM
I can remember with dread the hours spent in a doctor's office worrying that my baby wasn't getting enough breastmilk. Unlike formula-fed babies, it can be very difficult to know if they are getting enough to eat. You can't measure breastmilk like you can a bottle, and so you're left with weighing the baby after each feeding, or worse -- weigh the wet diapers that they leave behind!
I'm so thrilled to learn about a new product that alleviates all the worry that moms have, as well as gives them information needed to make informed decisions with their doctor. And with a recent study concluding that breastfeeding for at least six months reduced the risk of an infant developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in adolescence by a third compared to those who were fed less than six months, it's more important than ever to have the support you need when nursing!
Since a fear of "inadequate supply" is often noted as a reason for stopping nursing, I'm happy that Momsense has created The Smart Breastfeeding Meter to measure and track a baby’s breast milk volume intake when nursing.
How exactly does it work? It's genius, really... By using a little microphone sensor that goes underneath baby's earlobe, the patented technology can sense how much baby is consuming and the information is sent to your smart phone for easy monitoring! How cool is that?
You can now find this product on the Momsense website, as well as retailers Target and Babies R Us via their online stores. We are super happy to be able to give a lucky Lille Punkin' reader a chance to win, as well!
