A London product design student believes she has the perfect solution for the problem of gender inequality around breastfeeding – a special kit that would make it possible for men to “chestfeed” children.
Marie-Claire Springham appeared on Good Morning Britain to show off the kit. “Basically the way I designed it is new couples when they find out they’re expecting sign up to basically a pre-natal course,” she said.

“And they receive a kit in which it contains a nine months of a drug called progestin,” she added, noting that the drug will “stimulate the production of milk-producing glands” in the males who take it. Getting men to lactate then requires a separate drug regimen.
The final piece of the kit would include a pump and compression vest.
Springham’s kit won a design award for “[challenging] the fundamental meanings of male and female, father and mother, parent and child.”
“At a time when we increasingly use hormones, medication and technology to change the life options available to us, Marie-Claire’s design concept goes right to heart of our taboos.”
