Baby Connect – You can record nursing, pumping, and bottle feedings as well as sleep, development, and even the baby’s mood. The app also stores important medical information like doctor visits, blood type, allergies, and current medications. When you’re away, your caregiver can use the free web interface to log information as well. Data can be automatically synchronized between accounts online, so everyone involved in the baby’s care can access.
Feed Baby – Feed Baby allows you to track everything you do with your baby, from feeding times to diapers and growth and development. The app’s one-touch logging makes it easy to record. You can also share with dad through device-to-device synchronization. Customized alarms can be used as reminders or to keep organized.
Glow Baby – Glow Baby will help you log and time all aspects of your baby’s care: from bottle feeds, to breastfeeding, to diaper changes, sleep schedules, developmental milestones, medication and growth charts. Glow Baby has it all and is the single best resource for new parents!
LactMed – The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has a database called Toxicology Data Network (TOXNET) that keeps track of drugs and dietary supplements that may affect breast-feeding. NLM created LactMed to bring all of this information directly to you. Find out how much of a drug or supplement can be found in your breast milk and what potential side effects it can have on your baby. The app also suggests alternative medications that are safer during breast-feeding.
latchME – It was designed by doctors and lactation consultants and created to help breast-feeding mothers connect with resources in their area. Based on your location, the app will tell you where to find support groups and professionals, comfortable places to breast-feed or pump while you’re out, and businesses that support breast-feeding.
Pumplog – Pump Log focuses exclusively on helping you make breast pumping more efficient. It lets you set reminders of when you need to pump and tracks breast milk production. Find out what foods can boost your breast milk production, learn what times during the day you pump the most, and set goals you’d like to meet. You can also record notes from each time you pump.
