An app for nursing mothers: latchME

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, April 29, 2015

High tech help for nursing mothers.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   A company called Fairhaven Health, which makes a variety of products to assist with breastfeeding, is now partnering with an app called latchME.    It was created by pediatrician Dr. Jonathan Goldfinger….

“So after a mother downloads the app it will immediately offer her the key latchME services, the first being that she can tap a button on her phone and find local breastfeeding resources so that mothers can find a professional to help them latch their baby, a doctor to help them with a potential nipple infection or a local milk bank to donate milk or receive milk if she has, let’s say a baby in a neonatal intensive care unit.  In addition, many women will go on there and chat with each other.  So we have a social support network.”

LatchME is available for iOS and Android devices.   Other products can be found at FairhavenHealth.com.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
