How do breastfeeding apps work?
Breastfeeding apps work by allowing you to track how many ounces you produce, how much your baby eats, and how often you feed your baby. These apps will keep track of all the stuff you tend to forget. All you need to do is download them and you’re ready to go! Some of them will even record which side you last expressed or fed from so that you can try to have equal feedings from each breast.
