The Silicon Review
“We want Baby Health Care to be known for contributing to the prevention of colds, RS virus, and otitis media by suctioning nasal mucus. It facilitates breathing and guarantees restful sleep, both of which enhance the baby's Quality of Life (QOL).”

The Silicon Review reached out to Kazumasa Yamafuji, CEO of Baby Health Care, Inc., and here’s what he had to say.
Q. What circumstances or events led to the creation of Baby Health Care, Inc? Please brief us about the history so far.
One day a patient treated his child's otitis media using the device he was using. He subsequently posted about the success of this application on a blog for mothers who were having a similar problem, and this was the beginning of our market.
Setbacks are a part of every growing business. Tell us about a few roadblocks and learning lessons that helped Baby Health Care grow through the years.
The setbacks were rooted in the experiences of the parents. Since they were used to manually suctioning or using pipettes, they were reluctant to prioritize the advantages of electric alternatives.
Q. Can you introduce us to your products? What are their key features?
The efficacy of nasal suction is not yet widely recognized, even among physicians. Infants who have recently been born cannot breathe through their mouths and cannot regulate pressure in their ears and noses. Therefore, if the nasal mucus is not suctioned, it flows into the middle ear, causing inflammation. Moreover, the maximum effect is that by suctioning nasal mucus before sleep, the baby can sleep well, leading to improved immunity. We hope to spread this understanding first among physicians through allergy and pediatric conferences.
Q. Can you provide us with one or two success stories describing the challenges parents faced and how Baby Health Care helped them overcome those challenges?
A doctor's opinion will have the most weight with mothers. Therefore, we arrange for physicians to counsel mothers suffering from otitis media. We also exhibit at pediatric and allergy conferences to raise awareness among healthcare professionals.
Q. What's the one thing you want Baby Health Care to be known for?
We want Baby Health Care to be known for contributing to the prevention of colds, RS virus, and otitis media by suctioning nasal mucus. It facilitates breathing and guarantees restful sleep, both of which enhance the baby's Quality of Life (QOL).
This also helps reduce the physical and mental stress of mothers and eliminates the need for antibiotics. We believe that early treatment and prevention are extremely important and that such care is the ultimate preventive medicine for the future. We call this philosophy ‘Healthcare for Baby’, and we are delivering the joy of baby's health to mothers all over the world.
Tell us, what’s next for Baby Health Care.
We will release a low-cost respiratory sensor to prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). We plan to set the price under 50 dollars so that young parents can easily afford it. The safety of babies during sleep is of utmost importance and emergencies like SIDS, falls from the bed, suffocation accidents with bedding, etc., are all too common. It is crucial to be able to quickly call an ambulance and administer resuscitation measures when abnormalities are detected.
Q. Is there anything you would like to add before we wrap up?
This is our company's philosophy and we want to stick to it and pass it on to young parents: ‘If you raise a child with love and give them the appropriate treatment when they are sick, their immunity will strengthen, and they will not fall sick even when they grow up!’
