The hubster and I visited Las Vegas for the annual superstar technology show – CES. CES brings the latest and greatest in technology trends from all around the world. Of course, I did find some products way cooler than others, like this Gerber BabyNes machine.
Now, I’m way past the bottle feeding stage, but I think this Gerber BabyNes machine is the coolest baby product that I saw at the show. In fact, my first thought when I saw the formula producing machines was, “Wow! It’s like a Keurig… but for babies!” Unfortunately, I also said that to the reps there and they weren’t too happy with that reference. Anyhow… this is how it works.

As you can see – it works just like a coffee pod machine. You get one of the BabyNes formula pods – each labeled with the appropriate age on the top. The machine will recognize which pod is in the machine thanks to a bar code. Then just tell the machine how hot you want the formula in the bottle and click the button.
BabyNes is a smart nutrition system that brings a range of six single-serve formula capsules for infants and toddlers during the first years of life. It is a revolutionary baby formula system that marries the best in class formula with a Wi-Fi enabled system to provide a perfectly mixed bottle, at a temperature selected by the user, with no lumps, all at the touch of a button.
It looked really easy to do, and if you get the carrier case it also comes with a travel BabyNes formula cover for you to make the bottle on-the-go.
A few product highlights:
Smart Nutrition: BabyNes formulas, inspired from breast milk composition, changes month after month to follow baby’s evolving nutritional needs and to nourish a healthy body and mind.
Smart Feeding: The Babynes design allows for optimum convenience and removes worry around hygiene and getting the measurement correct. A filter in each capsule filters out the bacteria from the water and the formula is dissolved completely within the capsule to flow directly into the bottle.
Smart Services: An upgraded, seamless user experience with a Wi-Fi enabled machine, the BabyNes system syncs with a smartphone to allow users to track baby’s nutrition, replenish capsules automatically or get an alert when a caregiver feeds the baby.
The BabyNes machine is available in the New York Metro area at Giggle Stores and Buy Buy Baby and online at giggle.com, buybuybaby.com, amazon.com, babiesrus.com and diapers.com at an MSRP of $249. The formula capsules are sold online at BabyNes.com or on BabyNes app ($59/box of 26 capsules). Read more about the Gerber BabyNes machine on BabyNes.com.
