CLAIMS

I/We claim:

1. A system for delivering an agent orally to a breastfeeding child, comprising: a wearable device configured to be positioned adjacent to and/or in contact with a breast of a wearer during breastfeeding and to allow human milk from the breast to pass through the wearable device to the breastfeeding child;

an agent source configured to supply the agent;

a fluid source configured to supply a fluid; and

a connector coupling the wearable device to the fluid source and the agent source, wherein the connector is configured to receive a combined flow of the fluid and the agent, and wherein the wearable device is further configured to allow the combined flow to pass through the wearable device to the child.

2. The system of claim 1 wherein the connector extends between the agent source and the wearable device, wherein the fluid source and the agent source are fluidly coupled in series, and wherein the agent source is configured to receive a flow of the fluid therethrough to produce the combined flow.

3. The system of claim 1 wherein the wearable device is configured to simultaneously allow the human milk and the combined flow to pass through the wearable device to the child.

4. The system of claim 1 wherein the agent source is configured to control (a) mixing of the agent within the agent source and/or (b) flow of the agent within and/or out of the agent source.

5. The system of claim 4 wherein the agent source includes a flexible housing that can be squeezed by the wearer to cause mixing of the agent in the agent source and/or exit of the agent from the agent source into the connector.

6. The system of claim 4 wherein the agent source includes a plunging mechanism positioned within the agent source and a handle portion coupled to the plunging mechanism, wherein movement of the handle portion causes at least a portion of the agent to flow out of the agent source and into the connector.

7. The system of claim 4 wherein the agent source empties of the agent gravimetrically, and wherein a rate of emptying of the agent can be modified by movement of the agent source.

8. The system of claim 4 wherein the agent source has one or more ports configured to receive a mixing device therethrough, the mixing device including at least one of a paddle, whisk, hook, or other component configured to be moved manually within the agent source to promote mixing of the agent.

9. The system of claim 4 wherein the agent source includes a housing and a mixing utensil within the housing, wherein the mixing utensil is configured for movement relative to the housing, and wherein relative movement of the mixing utensil and the housing promotes mixing of the agent within the agent source.

10. The system of claim 1 wherein the agent source contains at least a first channel having a first agent disposed therein and a second channel having a second agent disposed therein, wherein the first agent and the second agent can be the same agent or different agents.

11. The system of claim 1 wherein the agent source contains one or more ports through which the agent can be added to the agent source.

12. The system of claim 1 wherein the agent source includes a first agent source including a first agent and a second agent source including a second agent, wherein the first agent source is fluidly coupled in series to the second agent source, and wherein the first agent and the second agent can be the same agent or different agents.

13. The system of claim 1 wherein the agent source includes multiple exit ports fluidly coupling the agent source to the connector.

14. The system of claim 1 wherein the agent source is perforated and wherein the connector substantially surrounds the agent source.

15. The system of claim 1 wherein the connector is a first connector extending between the agent source and the wearable device, and further comprising a second connector extending between and fluidly coupling the agent source and the wearable device.

16. The system of claim 1 wherein the connector is a first connector extending between the agent source and the wearable device, and further comprising a second connector extending between and fluidly coupling the fluid source and the first connector.

17. The system of claim 1 further comprising a second connector extending between and fluidly coupling the agent source and the fluid source.

18. A delivery system for delivering an agent orally to a breastfeeding child, comprising:

a flexible device including a nipple portion and a broad portion, wherein the nipple portion is positionable over a nipple of a breast of a human user and includes a plurality of openings that permit human milk from the breast to pass through the wearable device to the breastfeeding child;

a supplemental fluid source configured to hold a supplemental fluid;

an agent source configured to hold the agent, wherein the supplemental fluid source is coupled to the agent source to permit flow of the supplemental fluid from the fluid source into the agent source; and

a connector extending between the agent source and the wearable device, wherein the agent source is configured to permit flow of the supplemental fluid and the agent (a) from the agent source into the connector and (b) from the connector into the nipple portion of the flexible device, wherein the plurality of openings further permit the supplemental fluid and agent to pass through the wearable device to the breastfeeding child.

19. A method for delivering an agent orally to a breastfeeding child, comprising: positioning a flexible device over a breast of a human user such that milk from the breast can pass through openings in the flexible device to the breastfeeding child;

at a supply source, mixing a supplemental fluid with the agent to form a supplemental mixture; and

flowing the supplemental mixture from the supply source to the flexible device such that the supplemental mixture can pass through the openings in the flexible device to the breastfeeding child.

20. The method of claim 19 wherein the supplemental mixture includes a bulk amount of the agent.
