I just discovered an amazing free app for those of you that are breastfeeding, available for your IPhone! It's called LactMed and it's a database complete with information on drugs and dietary supplements and how they can effect a nursing infant and lactation. Of course you should always consult your pediatrician and primary doctor for more information on a drug or to see if it's right for you. But this is a very handy app to have when you need an idea of the safety of something your taking quickly. It includes the summary, the effects on the infant, the effects on lactation, alternative drugs and much more useful information. Plus the best part is that it's free! So be sure to check it out I promise you won't be sorry and it's free so you have nothing to loose.
I'm not receiving anything for this post the makers of the app don't even know I wrote it. I just really love the app and think it's super handy to have!
