I’ve heard of the baby fog. I know a lot of moms suffer from it and I don’t anticipate me being any different. I’ll have a lot of family around to help and that will be great but there’s only so much family can help with, especially when it comes to feeding. I’m hoping to breastfeed my little one and start pumping early, both for dad and family to help with feeding but to also to build a stash. Building a stash is the main reason I want to find a good nursing/pumping app. One that helps track pumping sessions but also one that keeps my milk stash organized (I like organization and easily get anxious without it). So I’m going to try to set myself up for success (I image the Rocky theme song whenever I get like this). Try to get ahead of the chaos and get things organized. Being a first time mom there’s a high possibility I could crash and burn but hey, I’m going to give it my best shot.

In looking at apps I ran across a lot of them but these are the top nursing and breastfeeding apps for Android products.  It looks like Baby Connect (available for both Android, Apple and Kindle Fire), Feed Baby Pro, and Baby ESP are leading the way for Android nursing apps. If I’ve missed any that you love please feel free to share!
