For anyone who has used an Amazon device with Alexa, you know how convenient she is. From asking her the weather for the day, to order you some more toilet paper, or even helping turn on and off the lights in the house, she’s a household name that is helping families everywhere. Building on that support, Medela, the breastfeeding brand, has announced that Alexa is now also able to provide breastfeeding information through the new Medela Breastfeeding skill.
When enabled, users can ask Alexa about breastfeeding, storing breast milk, pumping, and even issues, like “What is a milk blister?” and “Why does my milk taste soapy?” Answers were developed with Medela’s team of board-certified lactation consultants. With the Medela skill, Alexa can answer the most frequently asked questions about breast milk feeding.
The Medela Breastfeeding skill is available on devices with Alexa including the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap and via the voice remote on Amazon Fire TV. Users can enable the Medela Breastfeeding skill by simply saying “Alexa, enable Medela” or by searching for and enabling the Medela Breastfeeding skill in the Amazon Alexa Skill Store, which is available in the Alexa app on iOS, Android and Fire tablets.
