BabyBoob is a small wearable device - placed on the breast via two sticky electrodes - that accurately measures the baby's milk consumption in real-time. Not only is it capable of determining the quantity of milk, it can also determine the quality (foremilk vs. fatty hindmilk).

The method is based upon complex electrical impedance variations in the breast that occur during breastfeeding.

The sticky electrodes will send the signal wirelessly to a smart device, while the BabyBoob app will support information gathering about the mother and child. Its technology allows for statistical analysis and enables mothers to receive tips based on their personal information and feeding patterns.
