“Simple, quick and easy to use – a must for night feeds!”
"All the answers to your paediatrician's questions in the palm of your hand!"
Time Magazine says:
"Baby Feed Timer, an elegant app that makes tracking breastfeeding a cinch, with perks.
The feed timer gives you 'left' and 'right' buttons (large buttons, thank goodness, so they’re easy to hit if you’re simultaneously cycling the baby through different feed positions). The best part? The 'analysis' screen."
Designed by and for breastfeeding mothers who want to track when and for how long their baby feeds, including a useful reminder for when a feed is due. It even tells you which breast to start on!
Baby Feed Timer does it all for you!

Ratings and Reviews
So first of all I paid for the full or premium or whatever it is called to share the log with my husband.... and it is beyond worth it (my family made fun of us etc. but here is our experience (it’s long so... I put I’d down below) for those who don’t wish to read I would 100% recommend even if baby is happy and healthy.
this log helped us post hospital release (day 4) to day 10 in determining that our child’s weight had likely gone down again. We had minor signs which concerned us, but family insisted we were being overlying cautious new parents of a new generation and didn’t need to track anything let alone use an ap... our child had lost weight post birth (most do) and gained it back, but on the first dr visit (day 6) lost weight again... went back day 7 and had gained significantly (it was concluded there was little to worry about and it was likely an issue with the different scales used in delivery vs pediatrician’s office. However we noticed (thanks to the ap) that 24 hours between poops had gone by twice and we were only getting 3-4 small wet diapers per day rather than the expected 8+... after our initial release. So we decided to call and asked for a dr appointment 5 days early (I’m glad we did) our child had lost weight, may have been experiencing some dehydration, and visited an ent.... long story short our child is doing well and this ap is wonderfully laid out and worth buying!
Just the app I needed!!!
Love this app! At first I just wanted an app that easily tracked when I fed my baby and which breast - this app definitely met those needs and more! The app is very user friendly and I love the simplicity - nothing over the top or trying to do too much - it just does the job which is perfect!
I love the reminder of which breast you last used and which breast is next - especially as a first time mom and being so exhausted that you can't even remember which breast you last used! The reminders are also very useful - especially with a sleepy jaundice baby that you need to wake up for feedings! I didn't think I would really need to track the poops and pees - but it's so useful to trend if baby is getting enough milk!
The analysis feature also proved to be very useful! I just used the app to answer all my doctor's questions at the hospital - he was asking the trends of her feedings and poops/pees - this app made it so much easier to remember how many times I had fed her for the day and yesterday, wet/dirty diapers she had, average time between feedings, how long her feedings have been - the doctor was so impressed by the app! Gave him all the details he needed!
Why No Voice Activation?
If I can get my Home Pod to start a timer, why can’t it start this timer? You’d think it would be a no-brainer to create a hands-free breastfeeding timer, but I’m guessing these things aren’t created by people who have actually nursed a baby. Particularly for those of us whose babies have poor latches, we need both hands to sort the kid, not faff about pushing buttons. Even with an Apple Watch, you still have to get your wrist in the right position and have a free hand to press go. So much for technology improving everyday life. It’s far easier to just watch the clock on the wall.
Otherwise, the app is fair-to/middling. There is no way to input the amount of milk the baby is taking at the breast, for those who are weighing. The sleep function is pretty rudimentary; if you start the clock on one device you won’t know it on the other. My husband and I can’t coordinate very well as a result. The separate sleep timer isn’t much better, and why would you want to open a separate app for sleep anyway? The main benefit of this app is that you can choose what to track and eliminate the rest from your screen. The log filter is also helpful. All data can be entered or amended later, in case you don’t log something immediately, which is a plus.
The analytics are really the only thing that make this better than a clock and a notebook. The machine saves time by doing the math for you. Otherwise it seems more like a toy than a tool.
