New parents can make their baby's formula in seconds and track feedings on their smartphones thanks what's thought to be the first Bluetooth-connected formula barista.
Parents can scan the barcode label of their baby's formula and Milk Nanny identifies the brand and knows what proportions it needs to whip up a well balanced bottle of it.
In addition to making formula in just 15 seconds at the touch of a button, parents can use the app to obtain insight into their baby's health by tracking milk consumption.
The machine sterilizes the formula using ultra violet technology and is equipped with a stirring function that prevents clumping when the powder is mixed.
Other features include bottle alignment detection for a spill-free experience, suction feet and the ability to control the machine without using a smartphone -- although founders say using one enables a maximum of functions.
Milk Nanny has made a splash on Kickstarter, raking in over $118,000, surpassing its goal of $100,000.
It's still possible to preorder Milk Nanny for $149, with shipping available anywhere in the world and delivery expected in May.
Founders promise in a video that Milk Nanny will be available in time for Mother's Day.
