Laurie commented on EasyIntimacy

Hi Lauren,
My concept would align more with the forth personas: The Support Systems. Principaly because the EasyIntimacy is to support parents who have to deal with deficient lactation.

My next step would be to meet with a silicone producer to know the limits of the material and it's faisability. I would also need ressources to learn more about food grade policies, sterilisation processes and different ways to fix the bottle teat to the mother's nipple (bra glues, succion cap, etc.). Then, I would need help to do validation models of all these elements, organise a discussion group of potential users and early childhood professionals and, with their feedback, make a final prototype and validate it again with a discussion group.

Thanks for your interest!
