9 Must-Have Breastfeeding Apps

August is National Breastfeeding Month, and one of the goals of the campaign is to help make breastfeeding easier and more manageable.

So in effort to take the guesswork out of breastfeeding, we’ve rounded up a few pretty cool breastfeeding apps that will help give you piece of mind, and hopefully help lighten the breastfeeding load.

Want to track feedings? There’s an app for that!

Need help with letdown while away from baby? There’s an app for that too!

And my favorite, an app that takes the guess work out of medications and supplements,  letting you know if they are safe or should be avoided.
