Finally, An Effective Gadget to Measure Breast Milk Supply


Many mothers the world over are concerned that their breast milk supply is inadequate. This anxiety leads to most of them abandoning breastfeeding earlier than they had planned. There is thus a large gap in the market for a gadget which can effectively and reliably measure breast milk production. I am pleased to reveal that I have discovered a device that meets these specifications, and has additional advantages!

The device is quite small, and thus portable. It can be strapped to the mother for hands-free usage or placed on the mother’s lap. While switched on, the device emits audio cues which indicate that milk is due to be tested. The device then follows a simple user-friendly test procedure: the unit attaches directly to the mothers breast producing a vacuum effect. This has been scientifically proven to extract milk more efficiently to a higher quantity than any other product to date, even surpassing hospital-grade breast pumps.  There is no need to use any additional attachments or aids such as rubber shields, flanges, shells or teats. The device can even be programmed to test larger quantities of milk over a period of time. One of the unique selling points of this product is that it has pre-installed motor and sensory applications including visual sensors, auditory sensors and olfactory sensors which provide a multi-faceted user experience. When not in use, the device has a sleep mode (however admittedly, in new devices this can be temperamental). Importantly, the device features a discrete feedback port which produces an accurate and user-friendly reading of milk production. The device is environmentally friendly and, with gentle maintenance, will provide the user with years of satisfaction. For illustrative purposes, here is a prototype diagram:

I LOVE this!!! So so true. It amazes me how little we trust our bodies (and our babies) to do what we were designed to do in relation to breast feeding!

Yeah this sounds great, except when the baby hasn't gotten back up to his birth weight and his doctor tells you to supplement with formula...so apparently it doesn't work every time.

In that scenario, it's the doctor who is malfunctioning, not the baby.

And again here is the doctor undercutting you. How long after before they told you to supplement? And how much weight did the baby lose? If its not a lot and they are slowly gaining weight back then you don't need to supplement, even if they are not quite back at their birth weight. Plus they found some women who were on IV fluids end up with bloated babies, who then drop all that extra water, which then leads to pressure for them to return to that bloated weight quickly. And they always conveniently forget that donated breast milk is an option if the mom is truly not making enough. Or IV fluids if the baby is dehydrated. No, its always just give up and go straight to formula without even trying to investigate whats going on.
