Baby Bottle Designs in the Shape of Brest that Simulates Breastfeeding
A start-up called Emulait has developed a bottle designed to offer an alternative for mothers who choose not to breastfeed or to aid in the transition for those who are gradually ending breastfeeding. In collaboration with lactation and infant feeding specialists, Emulait scanned over 1,000 nipples to complete its prototype after six years of research.
The goal was to create a bottle that best mimics the texture and feel of a breast. The tip is made of silicone while the container itself imitates the look and elasticity of a breast. The flow of outgoing milk has also been studied and made possible thanks to a special treat.
Emulait has developed baby accessories that mimic five main nipple shapes and five different skin colors. The bottles are currently available for pre-order on the emulait.com website, with an official release date of March 8.
Around 42,000 people have already expressed interest in the product, according to company co-founder Ben Zeev. Emulait’s initiative is part of a wider effort to promote breastfeeding, which was highlighted a few months ago when a group of associations unveiled a creative magazine cover to normalize breastfeeding in public.
