MyMilk Labs sought to help answer some of these questions and assuage parents by developing a milk sensing device that can track breastfeeding and prevent low milk supply.
The device, called MyLee, works by analyzing a small sample of breast milk, about six drops, for electrochemichal properties. MyMilk then processes the sample to generate personalized insights about breastfeeding establishment and milk supply progress, starting from the first days post-birth. The information also includes the identification of early signs of breast inflammation, which can occur when breastfeeding. These data-powered features offer much-needed support for mothers post-partum and help inform short and long term breastfeeding success.
