ID Baby

I just want to tell you both how impressed I am with how the scanner has been received by both the pharmacists and technicians at Reading.  They are always scanning; I find them training each other. I have received numerous comments like "this is great", "impressive" etc.

Newborns are especially delicate; any error could potentially cause them harm  and tarnish the reputation of the healthcare provider. IDBaby® allows hospitals to use their existing patient ID barcodes for additional safety verification. The scanner instantly verifies that the patient barcode matches the barcode label on stored breast milk, parent identification, or other items like charts, cribs, or bassinets.


IDBaby provides electronic documentation with the date and time of every interaction with the infant, including:

  • Feeding
  • Parental visits
  • Bassinet/crib arrival & departure
  • Milk collection
  • Patient chart access

The solution uses barcodes to confirm the mother-to-infant and infant-to breast milk/supplemental nutrition relationship, drastically reducing the risk of feeding errors and mislabeling.
