Zero actual REVIEWS! Developer GET REAL!

Hey developer! Why not set your app up with functions Mom’s actually want? Then Implement Advertising Plus requiring users to perhaps join your email list, or other ways to monetize your app... BECAUSE THER ARE SO MANY ways to monetize your app.
I know I would love an app with drug names and their interactions for other HEALTH CONCERNS and NOT only for mothers! Many health conscious people, plus adding more functions you could have a very profitable app just from advertising and selling your users emails to “Email optin” for categorizing according to primary use, this alone pays over $5 per user!

Real reviews from really Happy Customers... where are they? Time to make some changes Mr Developer, you could really begin to GET PAID, just by following what I offered here, a gold mine is awaiting you!!

site is wack ,


Dumb, dumb,dumb.
Where did lactmed go?
This is not free. Why the heck would you offer some advise on some drugs but make busy moms who have enough to worry about pay just to make sure that the drugs are safe for their babies for other drugs.
It’s for the money instead of actually helping new moms. This information should be FREE! Especially since we could call a pharmacy to get the information instead. But prefer convenance of an app to look up ourselves instead of bugging a busy pharmacist.
So dumb!
