ELECTRIC NANNY: The Milk Nanny can whip up a milk formula for your infant, in an instant.

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 sterilises 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 US$118,000 (RM426,452), surpassing its goal of US$100,000 (RM360,000).

It's still possible to pre-order Milk Nanny for US$149 (RM538.50), 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.

Other formula appliances include BabyNes from Nestle, a WiFi connected baby formula maker that's coming soon, and BEABA's array of non-connected formula cookers currently on the market. — AFP/RelaxNews
