This app is designed to help parents get fast and reliable breastfeeding information "When You Need It" (WYNI). 

WYNI is interactive, fun, and easy to use! It has answers to commonly asked breastfeeding questions and concerns such as:

     •     How do I know 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 WNYI 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.

*The Myths about Painful Breastfeeding.  If you're trying to breastfeed, and having difficulties, you've most likely heard all of these myths, sometimes from those we trust (even, at times, professionals).  Dr. Ghaheri's clinical interest is helping babies with breastfeeding difficulties. This desire stems from personal experiences, where both of his daughters had significant problems breastfeeding. He is one of the only ENT surgeons in the US who uses an in-office laser treatment for assisting babies to latch on to the breast, in addition to treating older children and adults for certain dental and speech issues. He provides many useful handouts, available for download.  As well as being exceptionally informative, he has a great sense of humour!
