It started in 1867 when Nestle made it possible for overtired mothers to have their babies nursed on something other than the breast milk. Unlike some cultures where wet nurses were, and in some instances are still, retained to breastfeed infants, European mothers had no such reprieve. Nestle changed that in 1867 by inventing the baby formula.
Now Nestle is back with another invention, BabyNes, which is based on the success of its Nespresso machine. Just drop a pod in the machine and the baby formula is ready in seconds. No need to boil the water or cool the boiled water or to refrigerate the prepared milk. Just drop the pod in the machine, press a button, and the formula is ready to be served to your infant.
