Expansion of nfant® Thrive Feeding System addresses top concern for breastfeeding moms
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, Jan. 4, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — nfant®, the leading provider of FDA-cleared smart baby-feeding solutions, today unveiled nfant Thrive Breast, its highly anticipated breastfeeding technology for the connected home nursery. nfant Thrive Breast, the latest expansion of nfant’s Connected Feeding™ system, enables moms and healthcare professionals to better understand milk flow during breastfeeding and addresses concerns about milk supply and proper nourishment for breastfed newborns during critical growth windows.
With the addition of nfant Thrive Breast to its consumer product line of nfant Thrive Bottle and mobile Tracker App, parents, family members and caregivers will be able to receive real-time support during feeding sessions of all types, with the ability to share key information with their pediatricians, lactation consultants and other medical specialists.
nfant also announced strategic alliances to enhance the value and scalability of its consumer product line. The company is leveraging the PICOLEAF™ film force sensor from Murata (a global electronic component supplier) to manufacture the nfant sensors. nfant also expanded its relationship with SimpliFed, a maternal telehealth platform dedicated to infant nutrition and parental support, through which it will deliver professional virtual lactation and feeding support.
“We are proud and pleased to be returning to CES this week having made several major strides in line with our mission to take the guesswork out of feeding,” says nfant CEO Tommy Cunningham, Ph.D. “With nfant Thrive Breast and our close collaboration with SimpliFed, we now have a Connected Feeding solution for everyone – parents to professionals, bottles to breastfeeding. In addition, our collaboration with Murata, a world leader in electronics manufacturing, will enable us to incorporate their latest developments in sensing technology, alleviate supply chain concerns encountered by other organizations, and maintain affordable solutions for consumers as we scale up production.”
nfant is exhibiting at CES Booth #8478 in the Digital Health Section in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center and will be featured in Murata Booth #10249, also in the North Hall.
Orders of nfant Thrive Bottle will be available for shipment in February along with downloads of the mobile Tracker App on both iOS and Android platforms. nfant products can be purchased directly through the company’s website as well as through Amazon and bttn, the world’s largest online medical supply store. nfant Thrive Breast is currently in beta testing and will be integrated into the Tracker App with anticipated availability in Fall 2023.
