What is Babyation?

Babyation is the developer of a breast pump that enables women to pump without removing their shirts. The company’s smartphone-enabled breast pump consists of low-profile breast shields that are worn under a bra, allowing milk to travel from the breast shield through long, thin tubing and into a bottle.
