There are many apps available for your phone that can streamline your pumping experience and provide valuable information right at your fingertips. Here's three of our favorite mobile apps to support your breast milk feeding experience:

Breastfeeding is one of the most natural things a mother can do for her baby, but that doesn't mean feeding your baby always comes naturally. Breastfeeding can be a journey with successes and challenges for new and even seasoned mothers, and it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed at times.

Fortunately, there are many apps available for your phone or mobile device that can streamline your pumping experience, provide valuable information at your fingertips and help you navigate the art of breastfeeding more easily – wherever you are!  

Here are 3 helpful mobile apps you can use to simplify and support your breastfeeding experience: 

Medela Family App

Save your precious time and energy by avoiding manual recording of your pumping and nursing sessions and by not having to write down your baby’s naps, diaper changes and growth. The Medela Family app holds this detailed information for you, and is a perfect breastfeeding tool for mothers just like you. This intuitive app seamlessly connects to most Medela double-electric breast pumps via Bluetooth® for automatic tracking of your pumping sessions. You can also track important information like nursing sessions and your baby’s sleep, diaper changes and growth in one central location for easy reference whenever needed, letting you spend more time enjoying your little one and all the beautiful things motherhood offers.

Due date getting close? The Medela Family app is also equipped to help guide you through all aspects of your pregnancy with interactive features to track the progression of your baby’s growth and time contractions when labor starts. In fact, no matter where you are in your prenatal or postnatal journey, you can find valuable content like customizable checklists for packing your hospital bag or preparing for a return to work.

A convenient virtual milk storage system allows you to monitor your milk stash with expiration alerts so you can make sure nothing goes to waste – because, as new moms know, crying over spilled (or wasted!) milk can happen!

Finally, you can use the app to get reliable, expert-reviewed answers to all your maternity, breastfeeding and motherhood questions through our carefully curated Medela knowledge base. This resource features educational articles and other content to help you learn all about your body and your baby. With everything you need, you can spend less time worrying and more time bonding with your new bundle of joy!

Mamava App

Mamava is transforming the culture of breastfeeding by providing freestanding lactation pods designed to meet the needs of breastfeeding parents everywhere. With the Mamava app, you can find lactation spaces anywhere to pump or breastfeed while on the go, so you never have to resort to using a public restroom. The app includes both Mamava pods and user-submitted lactation spaces with reviews and photos, allowing you to plan your trips ahead of time or find private lactation spots on the fly. As an added feature, the app includes sounds to help stimulate letdown and support a relaxing pumping experience. 

The app also allows for one-tap unlocking for most Mamava pods for a secure experience, no matter how public the location (airport, train terminal, ballpark? No problem.) Just make sure your Bluetooth® is on so you can access your nearest empty pod when needed. 

Finally, most parents know that community is important as you transition into this new phase of life and all of the challenges it can present. The Mamava App makes it easy to connect with other breastfeeding parents to help you navigate the experience; read words of support from other parents, and leave your own encouragement to pay it forward!
