As a new parent, the fear of unintentional accidents with your precious little one can take away the joy of parenthood. Bottle feeding, especially, is always a nervous, unsure activity as one doesn’t know if the milk is too hot or too cold, or when the last feeding was. Add to it the busy, demanding lifestyles where one is trying to juggle between caring for the baby to running for work. No wonder parenthood turns into a stressful experience! Korean startup Littleone, has launched its Smart Bottle which promises to bring all the joy by letting technology take care of your worries.
Digital technology to make parenting easier
The Smart Bottle warms and sterilizes the milk/formula and also gives tilt and air warnings through an app. The app also records feeding statistics and gives an alarm with real-time monitoring, letting you know when you have to feed you little one next. The bottle transfers its data to the app which can then be checked by the caregiver. The product also has an automatic detection where the Smart Bottle will set the right mixing temperature by scanning the bar code of the formula box.
Much more than a simple bottle
The Smart Bottle is not your regular feeding bottle lining the aisles in the supermarket. The product uses cutting-edge IoT technology and comes with a temperature sensor, acceleration sensor, heating plate, Bluetooth and a patented algorithm. By monitoring the temperature and feeding posture, it ensures your baby gets their feed safely and conveniently. It also helps avoid nutrient loss caused by the variation in temperature. The bottle is compatible with ios 7 and Android 4.3 and above. The bottle is made from glass, silicone and ABS material and has 160 and 240 ml volume. The company also has Smart Pee and Smart Temp products that also measure the bowel movements and body temperature of the baby. A happy baby means a happy parent!
