The Smart Feeder is designed so that the ergonomics facilitate the comfortable, broadly horizontal positioning of the feeder required for Paced Feeding. The nipple area is large and clear so that it is easy to level the milk with the baby’s lips.
If the baby is being fed and the angle of the feeder indicates forced feeding rather than Paced Feeding then a warning light is turned on.
The Smart Feeder is designed to monitor the baby’s feeding performance. It does this by measuring the flow of milk. The data is only meaningful if the baby is in control of that flow. Paced Feeding is the only feeding method that we are aware of that satisfies this requirement.
