If you are a new father or to-be a father, this is the news of the day. A Japanese company has built a new apparatus that allows even men to breastfeed a baby.

Called Father’s Nursing Assistant, the apparatus is a fake breast that can be worn like a jacket. As Cnet explains, the device vibrates when the infant drinks.

 

An accompanying app displays how much milk the child has drunk and for how long to monitor the child’s growing process.

The prototype device conforms to the infant’s body and features a natural texture and temperature to stimulate the body temperature of a mother to induce sleep.
