Seamless Integration

Compatible with both WatchOS® and Wear OS, the Medela Family smart watch app synchronizes automatically with the main smartphone app.

This integration provides uninterrupted tracking of baby’s activities, from breastfeeding and pumping to sleep and diaper patterns.

The smart watch app includes an array of essential features to assist parents:

  • Diaper Tracking: Note diaper changes to ensure the baby’s comfort.

User-Friendly Interface

The interface of the watch app features dedicated tabs for each function, providing quick, on-the-go tracking with streamlined controls. While the watch app focuses on essential tracking, the full range of features, including detailed data input, is available on the smartphone app, ensuring a comprehensive record.

The Medela Family app is used around the world by expectant and breastfeeding families to track inputs from pregnancy through baby’s first years, offering personalized, evidence-based guidance and easy tracking to simplify breastfeeding and pumping for new parents.

The app also includes connectivity to Medela breast pumps, checklists for returning to work, virtual milk storage, and more.
