The Mylee by MyMilk is featured as a smartphone connected scanner, that measures how established breast milk is, via the levels of ions.
Dr. Sharon Haramati explains how it works: ‘Basically, the mother just takes few drops of milk into this tiny milk chamber, and then connects the chamber with the MyLee device, that senses the electro-properties of the milk sample. This information is being transferred directly to the mother’s smartphone to generate immediate insights’.
The algorithm is based on data from over 800 milk samples, and lactation consultants have uploaded details from hundreds of feeds.
‘Usually the device shows me that I was right, but, it might help us see something earlier than the human eye would detect’ Maya Dubinsky, a certified lactation consulatnt (IBCLC), add from her experience with the use of the MyLee.
Mothers also get to see how they getting on. ‘It is very calming, when you get the App and it is all green. It gives you a scientific sign that you are doing OK. Because many time you are doing fine, and its all in your head. But when its not, The MyLee tells you are not’ Einav Alvas, mum and MyLee tester, explain.
