What does the app do?
While the app acknowledges that drinking alcohol while breastfeeding should be avoided, it provides information about breastfeeding and occasional alcohol use, to enable the user to make safe decisions. It uses your height and weight and alcohol intake to estimate when your breastmilk should be free of alcohol. The timer function can alert you when this time has been reached. It also has answers to frequently asked questions around alcohol and breastfeeding such as how does alcohol affect breastmilk. It has been made available by WellSouth Primary Health Network. For a complete app description go to the website(external link), Google Play(external link) or iTunes(external link) and for a complete app review, see Reviews.
✔ Developed by an academic and various health associations.
✘ The information section discusses the effect of food intake on alcohol levels, but the user is not able to input food intake into the calculation section. Food intake reduces and delays the time of peak alcohol levels in breast milk.
