Recommended: An App for Breastfeeding on android

The last time i breastfeed Kyle was 3.5 years ago for a period of 1.5 years (so it's been two years since i stopped breastfeeding!). Then, i wasn't using the iPhone yet and i was recording the feedings and pees & poos information manually into a notebook, which i had up to two thick notebooks with every  single pages filled with everyday's record.

Fast forward to today, i had already changed three iPhones and is using a Samsung Galaxy Note II now. Same, i needed to record down Kyne's breastfeeding diary to monitor his intake and output. I  did a search and downloaded a few apps to try before i found this very perfect app for me!

It's called "Feed Baby - Baby Tracker Lite" by Penguin Apps. It's really very cool because it:

* Easily record breast/bottle/SOLID feeds with a single touch.
* Easily record daiper changes (pees/poos) with a single touch.
* Easily record your Babys Sleeping Sessions with a single touch
* Device-to-Device Synchronization between any number of devices so that Mom and Dad always knows whats going on!
* Easily record and chart your babys Growths (weight, height and head circumference)
* Easily record your Pumping sessions
* Easily "Continue" the last recorded feed
* Easily "Pause" the current feed
* Easily add Medicines and create Medication Records to record all of your babys medicine intake
* Daily Summary screen that shows ALL activities for each day
* WIDGETS to help you access key features from the home screen
* Feed Baby automatically saves and restores your data in case the database gets corrupted
* Easily add notes for Feeds, Diapers and Sleeps
* Charts and graphs give you a clear visualization of feeding patterns.
* Export your entire Feeding History as a CSV file and automatically send it to any email address. You can then print it out for further analysis by yourself or your doctor
* Full screen clock is displayed during feeds so you can check at a glance the amount of time that has elapsed during a feed
* All history is kept and fully browsable
* Individual feeds are grouped automatically into "Feeding Sessions" for better visualization
* Fully customizable notifications alarms means that you never miss a feed or have a feed go for too long
* Each feed is fully editable so that you can retrospectively alter the start/end times and bottle quantities
