What's New in Version 1.1.5
A brand new color scheme
I also wish I'd downloaded this sooner- so convenient, and great comfort knowing the ratings come from a great research group. Much more trustworthy (and easy) than doing your own internet searches about safety. Also, there's a lot of healthcare providers who simply don't know if medications are safe, so they just tell you to "pump and dump" or even quit breastfeeding when neither is required for baby's safety and makes breastfeeding a greater challenge for us moms. Great resource, easy to use and understand, highly recommend!
Wish I'd found it sooner
I've been nursing babies for 4 years straight. Trying to figure out if I could take a med in the wee hours I bought this app and wish I had known about it sooner. I normally call my ped to verify meds I take which works well, but not after hours and a lot of other sites/apps do not have the data base this site has as well as the simplicity of figuring out safety. Dr. Hale is THE go-to in this field and knowing this app is based off his research makes it easy for me to trust.
MommyMeds is a Great Investment
Being pregnant for the first time is scary enough without having to worry about if your medicine is safe to take or not. I trust MommyMeds to give me the most recent information regarding the safety various medications.
I love that MommyMeds is also customizable based on the trimester of pregnancy. By using this app I learned that Ibuprofen can cause birth defects if used during pregnancy but may be safe for use by a breastfeeding mother after the baby is born. This is invaluable information that all mothers need to have access to!
