Ok, first off, I know that you don't absolutely need an app to breastfeed, far as I know you just need a willing pair of boobs and a amiable baby. That aside, it can be extremely handy to have a helpful app supporting your breastfeeding, to keep track of which boob you last fed from, how long you fed for and any other detail you might want to record. The reason for this, is in the early days of breastfeeding, it can be handy to remember which boob you last fed on (so you can alternate), as if you're trying to rely on your brain to function during this haze of sleep deprivation, you'll quickly realise that it's just not up for this task.

So to help you out, here's a few apps that you just might find handy. With some of the apps, there are some funky extras like space to track your baby's development and key milestones.

Medela Me will help you keep track of all sorts of important information


1) Medela Me - This free app allows you to log a host of activities including breastfeeding, sleeping, medications given, vaccinations required (and dates), health visits, weight, size and even nappies should you wish to get into the detail. You can also add photos of your baby too. If you're purely using to track your breastfeeding details, it's very simple, and all you need to do is click 'start left' or 'start right' dependent upon which breast you are using and then the data is saved. You can also record information if you are expressing too. This is a simple app, that will help you keep on top of breastfeeding with a few extra handy things thrown in for good measure.

2) First Year As the name suggests, this app is great for keeping on track of your breastfeeding habits, and with a few clicks you can easily record which breast you are using, and how long you have fed for and then 'log' the information for prosperity.

Keep track of everything in your baby's first year


As your baby gets older, you can even log the foods that they move to when weaning and what they have eaten, which can be good for ensuring that your child is still getting all the good foods they are need, and not missing out on their milk feeds that they'll still need in their first year. Switching between the different screens can become a little clunky, but as a free app, it's still very useful.

3) Feed me Mom If you want simplicity and just an app that will time your feeds, let you know which side you used last, and all with effortless ease and without the bells and whistles of some of the other apps, then this one if for you. Simple to use on even the least amount of sleep, and keeps track of your breastfeeding actions.

4) Baby Nursing/Breastfeeding With the free version you can keep track of breastfeeding actions, track measurements and weights and keep a photo diary of key milestones or baby updates should you wish to. You can upgrade from the free app to include vaccination monitoring, nappy changes, bath times etc, but the free option is a really good app that does enough to keep you more than occupied.

Track your breastfeeding progress and record diary entries as you go
