The introduction of a wireless device for effortless digital recording and analysis of milk pumping volumes would simplify the lives of moms and provide them with quantitative data to assess their pumping schedules, history, and productivity. Visualization of this data will help our user make data-driven decisions about how to best meet her feeding goals, maximizing her child’s nutrition and long-term health. This technology aims to automate data collection, storage, and visualization, and is the first of its kind to offer a seamless alternative to manual data entry. In this work we develop an internet of things (IoT) solution, incorporating a sensor to measure milk volume and breast pumping time and durations. Specifically, we utilize a liquid volume sensor to measure fluid measurements within a breast pump collection bottle. Fluid volume and time stamp data are broadcast locally via BLE connection to a previously-paired iPhone app (Empower Pump app) which displays the current and average pumping session data.
