JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli invention will allow a nursing mother to measure how much milk her baby drinks at a feeding, and how much milk she has available in her breast.

The device, MilkSense, is the first product to be developed by the Israeli startup Bradley and Luka.

MilkSense uses electromagnetic signals to measure the amount of milk in the breast before and after a feeding.

The Israeli chain store Dr. Baby will begin selling the device as early as next month, with plans to market it around the globe.
