The Windsor- Essex County Health Unit would like to introduce you to WYNI, a breastfeeding app designed to help mothers get fast and reliable breastfeeding information When You Need It. WYNI is available for free download on both Android and iOS devices.
WYNI is interactive, fun, and easy to use! It has answers to commonly asked breastfeeding questions and concerns such as:
- How do I know if my baby is getting enough milk?
- How do I know if my baby is latched on properly?
- What do I do about sore nipples or breasts?
- When will my baby sleep through the night?
WYNI also has tracking features that allow you to track breastfeeds, baby’s diaper changes, and keep a record of your child’s growth. WYNI is filled with colourful pictures, helpful diagrams, and videos that provide support for breastfeeding moms and babies. There is also a fun quiz to test your breastfeeding knowledge and a “Get Help” section that links you with local breastfeeding help if you need more support.
The WYNI app was created in partnership with the Building Blocks for Better Babies program, University of Windsor Faculty of Nursing, and the University of Windsor School of Computer Science with funding support provided by Health Nexus.
