What's NewThis release is in response to a lot of great customer feedback - please keep it coming!
A story really moved us - a mom wrote to tell us she used Smallnest when she had milk supply problems. Three checkups saw the baby's weight declining, and she had to supplement with formula. But, her supply finally came in - and she needed to switch off of formula back to breastmilk, but carefully monitor diapers. Among the many things we learned from her was that smaller increments are crucial really early on - so we've added them in. It was exciting to hear how much Smallnest helped her get on track. Her healthy baby is now 3 mos old, and has been on breastmilk exclusively for quite some time.
Now, you can use mL and go from 0-50 (about 1.67 oz) and in 10mL increments from there (roughly 0.34 oz). If you're using ounces, you can go from 0-5.0 in 0.5 oz increments, which matches Medela and most other pumping bottle increments (at least, as well as our eyes can see them). If you want more granularity than oz provides, just use mL (on the other side of the bottle!). As always the app remembers your last choice, so if you switch back and forth don't be surprised if it defaults to mL if that's what you used last time.
We also sat down with a respected pediatrician who pushed us on totals - as many have you requested. Now the app shows 24-hour totals for all relevant activities!
