Having a baby in the neonatal ICU (NICU) is understandably one of the most frightening experiences for new parents, esp. the mother. Not only are you constantly worried about your little one's health, you are entrusted with providing the most important nutrient for your baby's growth - your breast milk. While breast feeding under the ideal circumstances is natural, breast pumping is not, more so given that you are physically disconnected from your baby.
Kare Mom is a HIPAA compliant app that will be your support system during this phase. From tracking your pumping sessions, to feeling engaged in your baby's care at the NICU, Kare Mom helps improve the safety and efficiency of the entire breast milk tracking process. The nurses at the NICU are working tirelessly to ensure the best bedside care for your baby; that, coupled with the superpowers of your breast milk can make all the difference in your baby's world.
We hope your baby is back with you at the earliest, do remember to take care of yourself as you navigate these difficult days. Talk to your nurses, doctors, family and friends. We are here for you too, whenever you need us.

Ratings and Reviews
I love using this app. It provides helpful reminders to keep you on track. I like that I’m able to see the progress that I’m making as well as my inventory of milk for my LO at home and in the hospital. I also love the fact that the nurse that was caring for my LO was able to send me a picture of her while I was at home. It was comforting. I do just wish that the app could add an optional timer or the option to put what time you started pumping and the end time instead of just one time overall. I think that that would help with keeping track of how long you pump each time to also keep you on track and more closely monitor your output. I do also wish that it provided an option to still enter pumping seasons or bottles without the required labels. I do understand that the labels help to better ensure the integrity of each bottle but sometimes I run out of labels and am not able to provide the bottle number at that time which makes me have to go back into the app at a later time to enter the information. But overall I really do love this app.
2nd time NICU mom/ great app
This is my first time ever writing a review for an app. I truly enjoy this app and what it’s meant to do. I would’ve loved to have this available to me when I had my first round in the NICU. It would’ve Mazda’s my life so much less stressful.
I love how the nurses are able to provide pictures of my twin girls so I don’t miss out on those so important cutesy pictures 😊.
The only con I have about this app is that it doesn’t transition into an app that mothers can continue to use once their babies come home. to have to search for another app to help continue your pumping schedule/ tracking system that is as good as the one you’ve been using for however long your child is in the NICU can be tedious.
***My suggestion to developers is to make an app for mothers once they transition from the hospital to home.***
Pictures are the best part.
It was a great app for my wife to track her pumping, but as a father I loved logging in to look at the pictures the nurses would post. It allowed me to feel connected to him even though I wasn’t there.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
