If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the breastfeeding information out there, there’s no need to sift through it all to find answers. The Breastfeeding Central app, developed by a lactation consultant with 25 years experience, is a trusted resource for the information that new parents need, all in one place.
Parents Magazine rated Breastfeeding Central a best breastfeeding app and The Baby Spot named it Parenting App of the Year.
Breastfeeding Central guides you through each stage of breastfeeding, from preparing during pregnancy to the hospital stay, early days at home, first six months and returning to work.
Content is arranged chronologically and includes what to expect in the first four days, how to make plenty of milk, coping with common difficulties, caring for a toddler and the new baby, medications and breastfeeding, diet, alcohol and losing the baby weight, pumping at work, starting solids and much more.

New York lactation consultant Beverley Rae developed Breastfeeding Central as the next best thing to guide and support mothers who asked her to ‘move in with me’ after their breastfeeding consultation. The app effectively gives them – and mothers worldwide – a lactation expert on speed dial.
