A Basque inventor has a solution to a problem when a mother has to breastfeed her baby. The product allows the baby to suckle alone, without continuously being held. The offer is for companies devoted to producing innovative devices for babies care and comfort to establish a manufacturing agreement under license.
A Basque (Spain) inventor and grandmother found a solution to a problem that her daughter had at home, when trying to breastfeed her baby. She designed a cushion that allows the baby to suckle alone and to enable the mother to keep her arms free. The device is moulded to fit the mother and to hold the baby in a comfortable position, to make breastfeeding easier without exhausting the mother. The top of this device has a slight depth to accommodate the baby and protects him/her against falls. This nursing pillow can be made of different materials such as foam rubber, inflatable materials or from lightweight materials. They are looking for companies working within the production and marketing of products for babycare, who are interested in manufacturing the cushion under license with rights to sales in certain markets.
Innovations and advantages
The mother has her arms free while the baby is suckling, so that baby's mother can do other things. The mother can also have a moment of relax, especially when the feeding is long. The top of this device has a slight depth to accommodate the baby and protects him against falls. In addition, a lateral curvature of the cushion can hold the device in the lap of the mother, and breastfeed the baby from this position.
