A book I read as a 7-8 year old, back in '96-'98. It was a family which had a robot as a help. The baby drank a particular brand of milk that I don't remember. And the robot was programmed to feed the baby or, the robot chewed the food for the baby and put the chewed food into the baby's mouth. The baby's mother was a working woman and was always rushing to get to work.

    Want to share with everyone how long ago you were 8-10 years old so we can put a time frame on this :) Any other details would be helpful. – Stan Dec 27 '13 at 11:19

I think what you're talking about is:

The Type One Super Robot by Alison Prince.

The kid's uncle names the robot Manders because he does everything a man does.

If not, maybe you're talking about the Richie Rich comics, where Irona is his robomaid's name. They've got a whole squad of robo-helpers, if I remember correectly, though.

Oh! Or the Jetsons. Family living in the future; their maid's name is Rosie. Although that's a TV show, there were comic-book versions of that show.

  • Hey, none of these. I have added more details. Maybe it rings a chord? – user20801 Dec 27 '13 at 16:28
