Smart breastfeeding boost for mothers

Breastfeeding is the normal way of providing young infants with the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development. According to the World Health Organisation, virtually all mothers can breastfeed, provided they have accurate information, and the support of their family, the healthcare system and society at large. More needs to be done to improve breastfeeding rates. In Europe, rates of breastfeeding are among the lowest in the world. The EU-funded TheCoroRevolution project will develop a smart way to reverse this trend. It is developing a nipple shield with a microsensor that can provide accurate, real-time milk volume data directly to the mother via an app. The aim is to minimise unnecessary anxiety of mothers concerning insufficient breastmilk supply.
