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."

Worth Every Penny
I was in search for an app to help me keep track of feedings and expressing. Like my mother I found that I overproduce milk. And unlike my first child my second seems to not know when he’s full. It took my husband I two months of research and trying different techniques to find what worked best for me and our baby. Amidst this trial and error phase I knew I needed an app to send me reminders to pump and reminders of when to feed my baby. This app let me set reminders or use their preset to my liking. I get reminders for everything I need. I also didn’t think tracking my baby’s sleep was necessary but I have found it fun and informative. I can tell when he awake the most and when he sleeps the most. It also can passively tell when he’s going through a growth spurt cause he sleeps a lot more. I did the 7 day trial period to see if this would be the the app for me and a few days in I new it was the app I needed. I can keep track of how much he’s eating and how often and my pumping needs. It also lets you choose breast milk or formula when you go to add a bottle feeding. You can keep track of their growth and diapers plus many other features. I don’t use the diaper tracker too much work for me. This app also helps keep track of nursing and which breast was used last or to use next. I wholly recommend this app for those moms like me who are busy or sleep deprived or both lol. It had been a lifesaver.
Excellent Customer Service
Best app for tracking breastfeeding sessions! I love the big buttons - other apps have tiny buttons and when you’re holding a little one and trying not to disturb their latch, big buttons really come in handy. I also like that there is no time entry needed for growth entries, only a date is needed. Some OTHER big company apps require a time which is annoying. It’s very easy to find what you need and to edit entries. I also like that I can enter weight in lb and oz but enter bottle feeds in ml. I cannot do this on my Medela app which drives me crazy - you have to select metric or standard and when entering lb and you can’t enter oz, only lb with decimal point. Plus you can enter any increment whereas other apps (Medela) limits you to big increments that are less precise. #1 REASON FOR 5 STARS: CUSTOMER SERVICE. My first two entries for weight were showing on top of each other instead of being appropriately spaced. I emailed support, their response was FAST, and they FIXED the problem as soon as I gave them the right information. So happy with their customer service and can say this is app is worth the premium upgrade. Thank you to Alex with customer support!! Can’t believe you fixed it within 24 hours of me sending you the pics! So happy.
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.
