What does the app do?

The app uses a global positioning system (GPS) to determine your location and show you breastfeeding friendly venues closest to you. The app is limited to the Southland and Otago area. Users can search for specific location types such as cafes, restaurants, pools, libraries and parks. For a more detailed description of the app, see Google Play(external link) or iTunes(external link).



✔ Google maps overlay of breastfeeding friendly venues in Otago and Southland

✔ Lists the availability of amenities such as private spaces, changing stations, highchairs, pram friendliness and play areas.

✔ Custom descriptions from the venues about how they support breastfeeding mums.

✔ The website has guidelines for venues wanting to become breastfeeding friendly.

✘ The major flaw is that it only supports Otago and Southland.

✘ Not a fully native app, with most of the links opening in a web browser rather than displaying information natively within the app.
