App boost for new mothers

Have your say

A Feed-Finder App that helps new mums to find and share reviews on good places for breast-feeding has been welcomed by a county specialist.

It is free to download and works like Trip Advisor to create an online directory of reviews linked to maps of the most breast-feeding friendly places. The app ( was developed by Madeline Balaam, a new mum herself, and her team at Newcastle University.

Liz Lingard, speciality registrar in public health, said it is vital that organisations do as much as possible to help new mums keep going with their breast-feeding.
