Are you feeling overwhelmed by all the breastfeeding information out there, and too tired to sift through it for answers?
The Breastfeeding Central app, developed by a lactation consultant with 25 years experience, has the essentials that expectant and new parents need, all in one place.
Breastfeeding Central guides and supports you through each stage of your breastfeeding experience, 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.
Use the app’s Bookmark feature to save favorite sections.
A Help Locator enables mothers to find IBCLCs and breastfeeding support groups in the US and worldwide.
The FAQs cover What is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant? ; How can an IBCLC help me? ; When should I see an IBCLC? ; How Long Should I Breastfeed My Baby?
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 – access to a lactation expert at any hour.
Beverley’s 25 years of experience as a board certified lactation consultant began with nursing her own five children. She is a former president of the International Lactation Consultant Association.
