Our Story

The decision for putting our private practice lactation chart in an electronic format occurred in 2011 while Elizabeth Flight (“Liz”), was completing her BSN at Hampton University.  One of her  computer classes included Microsoft Access and the concept of building a database was born!  So much of what we write is repetitive and the goal was to find a way to reduce the amount of time it took to chart a visit.  Initially we were trying to find a way to adapt the one-page form that Liz developed over the last 25 years to a database with dropdowns.   

The goals were to make a program that would be user friendly, specific to outpatient lactation providers everywhere, on a mobile platform with storage capabilities in the cloud, and was customizable for each consultant whether they used IOS/Apple or Android. The process has been trial and error and included a painful search for the right people who could turn the vision into a functional product.  We finally found the right team of programmers. We are adding  more functionality faster and we have achieved our best design yet!  We’re excited that it meets your needs and your practice will grow! 

Special thanks go to Angela Love-Zaranka for being such a good friend and sounding board throughout this process and to Lillian Davis for always having my back and keeping me focused over this 6 year journey. 


I am loving MilkNotes. Liz just spent an hour with me giving me a tutorial of the App. It is very easy to use. I have been taking notes on paper during consults and then spending too much time typing up a report to send to MD. I think this will simplify my life. Thank you Liz! I am a fan.

I just want to applaud Liz Flight for her amazing work on creating a charting program for LC’s. She spent over an hour giving me a tour of the program and even giving me tips for my new practice. We need more brave, helpful, kind, servant leaders like Liz in this world.

Excellent customer service and feedback. I really appreciate the personal phone conversation I had today with Liz, and her tech support team is great! I like this product because i’t has great functionality out of the box and is intuitive to learn. A slow learner can poke around and find what they need, and someone who can adopt new things easily can whip through it. It has a beautiful layout and any IBCLC will be able to easily tell that IBCLCs had a hand in every part of this. It’s set up from the start for how we work instead of other systems which are adapted from other providers to us. Liz is very open to suggestions and making changes that open up options for the unique ways we each think and practice. I would recommend this product to any IBCLC!
