Ratings and Reviews
Love this app but has quirks
This app was a lifesaver as a new mom. It tracks diaper changes, breastfeeding, and pumping. Though I didn’t utilize it as much it even allows you to track height and weight (our Pedi does this for us so not much use for it). I appreciated the ability to contact a lactation consultant whenever I needed one (who knows where to find those anymore?!). But, I will say the app has some quirks you need to be aware of. It will occasionally log you out. If you choose to manually enter time for a session it defaults to the last breast you fed/pumped on and you will have to also manually select which side you used. And the quick track only shows up in the list or day overview not under stats for whatever you auto logged. For example if I didn’t want to open and log the details of a diaper change just that one occurred I would hit the quick track but it doesn’t show up under diaper instead only under list or day overview.
The old version was much better :(
In 2019 and the beginning of 2020, this app saved my life. My husband and I both used it on our phones to track bottles and diapers, and I tracked breastfeeding and pumping. It was user friendly and well organized. With baby #2, I just reopened the app to use it again and it’s just terrible. :( It’s very unorganized, timers automatically start when you click to log breastfeeding or pumping that you have to immediately stop and then manually put in your time (unless you have a pump that will connect to the app via Bluetooth). And don’t get me started on logging previous happenings - I came home from the hospital and wanted to log her first 36 hours in the app so everything was in one place, and when it takes about 10 tries to change the time on logging something and the date because they make it so small that you fat finger everything. They have what feels like 5 millions categories now for logging when it was nicer to have the basics - breastfeeding, pumping, bottles, and diapers. Stats gives you the overall for the day but it’s laid out different for each day in a different order depending how what order you logged things. It is just SO hard to navigate efficiently now and it’s difficult to find things!!! Medela, please fix these issues because I am losing my mind after using the app for only 24 hours! I really don’t want to switch to another one but will have to if it stays like this — it’s giving us headaches.

sorry to hear you are having a bad experience. Next week we will release a big update that will solve many usability problems.
New Version needs major work
**update** Medela contacted and said I was one update behind and that updating my app again will fix my problems. It seemed to for a week. But just now I was nursing and finished and my time seemed off. Sure enough it says I started at 6:45am, finished at 7:03am, and recorded 21 min of nursing. Not sure how this is possible when only 18 min of time had elapsed. My original review below stands. My girl will be one in a week and I won’t be using the app after that.
I used the old Medela App for over 2.5 years before they switched to this new version. And while the old one was annoying to travel between tracking and stats, the new one just doesn’t work as well. When I’m tracking breast feeding and pause for a min for whatever reason, then go back to tracking, it will jump from say 7 min to 12 min. Yet I KNOW it has only been 7 min. This happens more times then it doesn’t and is extremely frustrating. I also dislike when you go to the track session it doesn’t tell you which side you last nursed on. You have to go back to the my baby page to see that. The slider bar to input ounces of formula or milk is annoying. The stats used to be much easier to edit and now it’s like I need a manual to Use the app. It’s glitchy and inconsistent. If I wasn’t a month away from being done with nursing I would find a new app
Developer Response ,
we released the 5.0.7 update end of last week, could you please install it? Apple says here you are still on v5.0.6.
You can enter the volume without using the slider bar just tapping on the volume boxes.
