    Pros: 

    It helps moms get more milk, and get time back to multitask.

    Cons: 

    Keep innovating and building new products. Add heat technology to the bra.

    In an industry of outdated technology, the Lilu Massage Bra brings innovation to breast pumping.

Thank you for hunting our product, @katmanalac Hi Product Hunt! We’re the makers of the Lilu Massage Bra and we’re super excited to share with you that we are live on Kickstarter! We embarked on this journey to build technology make life easier for moms about 3 years ago. We met in a robotics class at the University of Pennsylvania where we were lab partners. Our passion for empowering women & moms prompted us to join forces to create the Lilu Massage Bra. We spent hundreds of hours in surveying and interviewing moms to understand their problems with breast pumping. We were gutted to discover that over 60% of moms today are not able to pump enough milk to feed their babies. In trying to find a solution, we found that to battle the shortcomings of their pumps, 2/3rd of moms used breast massage while pumping. This wasn’t just anecdotal, studies at Stanford Children’s Hospital showed that using breast compression and massage while pumping can increase milk supply over time. That is why we used research insights from soft robotics to develop the ultimate pumping bra that will provide moms with the proven benefits of breast massage hands free and hassle free. The bra mimics the breast massage motions recommended by lactation experts to stimulate milk flow. It’s easy to wear, comfortable, adjustable and compatible with the standard breast pumps in the market. We have tested the bra with over 130 moms and have seen overwhelming results. With Lilu, moms are pumping 30% more milk per session,on average, than with their breast pumps alone. And the benefits go well beyond just increase in milk supply. We’re constantly flooded with pictures and messages from moms and influencers who tell us that they are finally able to give their hands the much needed rest and do other things while pumping, like using their phones or laptop or even playing with their babies! We’ve already set up manufacturing and lined up supply chain to start shipping our first batch of the Lilu Massage Bra in May! As fast as technology moves, advancement in postnatal tech has been lacking. We want to change that because we believe moms deserve more. The Lilu Massage Bra is just the beginning...

This is a product which every female with a just-born kid must have because there is absolutely no alternative to breast milk atleast during the first year of the baby's birth.This is a revolutionary product which helps a woman to spare her hands for multi-tasking even while breast-feeding the baby.
