This Genius $15 Invention Allows You to Pump Milk Directly to Your Baby
Breastfeeding is challenging enough, but for moms who pump exclusively, having to separate pumping time from feeding time can feel like a second job. Katherine Hornbostel, a PhD mechanical engineering student at MIT, was in this exact predicament when her twin babies struggled to latch. Her life revolved around the endless loop of pumping, storing milk, bottle feeding, cleaning bottles, and pumping, and she knew there had to be a way to streamline the process. That's when she came up with the idea for the Pump2Baby Bottle, an invention that allows moms to feed their babies breast milk as it's being pumped. And the best news? It's only $15!
