Tracking with a lot of clutter
I enjoyed this app at first. I even bought the premium subscription while I was still pregnant. Tracking works well, and when the watch app works properly, it’s handy. BUT... they keep adding silly features that get in the way. The “AR” photo book seems gimmicky and I wouldn’t trust it to work reliably. They are always sending notifications about silly posts in the forums... Now the stories! So much clutter and nonsense! It’s too bad because I like the tracking features and use them pretty religiously. I’ve been trying some other more streamlined trackers, and currently like Huckleberry because we’re in the throes of sorting out nap time and it helps guesstimate when the next nap should be. (And it’s not such a train wreck when I open it up!) Apple Watch app... ugh. Bit of a let down. First: It’s easy to accidentally lose the reading. In the phone app you can leave the timer and it keeps running, but on the watch, if you hit back it cancels it. So many lost sleep tracks! Worse: it displays the times differently than the phone and makes me do math to estimate when the last nap ended! For some reason they tell you when the last one started and how long it was - but not in minutes, in hours! E.g. 1:25pm, 1.4 hours long. So it ended.... errr... how many minutes is .4 hours? 20 something? This is not kind to users who are not sleeping well!!
Update a love it
Absolutely love this app & I am happily surprised at how well the developers listen to their feedback and truly improve the app based off that. It’s super easy to input & track almost everything in this app. The one update that would make this app even better would be to have daily pumping oz totals on the homepage as well for a bit more ease of convenience. I do love that it’s currently on the pattern chart as it helps me keep a perspective of the day but it’s a bit more difficult to get to. Or even if the pattern chart just opened up directly when toggling over to analysis instead of having to click in & highlight the day, so there would be less toggling / clicking to be done. I actually didn’t even know about the totals feature for everything on the pattern chart until I had been reading a Facebook post from a friend who was looking for app suggestions & someone mentioned the totals being viewable from the pattern chart. It’s kind of like a hidden gem the app features, that if highlighted a bit more / more easily accessed could greatly improve an already amazing app!
Incredibly helpful! - updated
First time mom here- I tried 3 other apps before finding Glow. I was so frustrated by how complicated other apps were. Glow really streamlines info and makes everything SO organized and easy to get to. I never have to worry about tracking because it’s seriously a breeze with this app. I gave it 4 stars because I’m not a huge fan of all the articles and/or tips - some things you can’t predict for every baby and it might make some moms worry when there’s no need to (too much information isn’t always a good thing). **update** lowered to 2 stars... I’ve used this app for over 4 months now and still really like how easy and convenient it’s been but they shove the pro version every chance they get. That gets annoying if you’re just trying to time a feed before your kid gets fussy and adds keep popping up. They also just updated the app (like a big update that changed where everything is) and it’s more confusing than it needs to be. Instead of making items more accessible they made it more difficult to find (also annoying if you just got used to the other version). I wouldn’t recommend the app with the new update.. the only reason I keep it now is because I have all my previous data on it 🤷🏻♀️
Great app that grows with your baby
I initially downloaded this app to track breastfeeding, but I ended up using it for so much more. I still log my nursing sessions and it's been 3 months. It's helpful to remind me which side I left off on and how long ago it was. It helps me plan ahead by checking to see if it's been a while since he ate last. I also used it for the first few weeks to track diapers. This is especially helpful for breastfed babies to make sure they are eating enough. Although I don't track diapers anymore, I have started using the pumping timer and the bottle fed tracker. I also started using the sleep tracker now that he's not sleeping all the time anymore and I want to make sure he is getting good stretches of sleep during the day to see if that helps him sleep more soundly at night. This app is great because the features are there for you to use them when you need them even if it's not all of them all the time. Oh! And I like that you an add another person to your account so both parents or babysitters can track too and you get the same information on your phone.
A must have!
I love that not only does this app track feedings and diaper changes and sleep but that it also allows for your partner to have access to all the same information. I’m a full time stay at home mom so majority of the time I’m the one adding information in the app but when my husband has a question he doesn’t have to ask me he just checks his app. He can see when her last feeding was or when her last diaper change was. So when she’s crying and he’s trying to determine why he doesn’t have to ask me question after question he has all the answers. The one thing I wish this app had was some way to take all the info you’ve gathered and give you your babies “averages”. Like a schedule that your baby is following on their own. For example: your baby is averaging a 2 hour nap from 11:00-1:00. Your babies average bedtime is 8:30. Things that would give you insight into making a schedule for your baby because you could see what they are generally doing overall.
My husband and I are brand new parents. My favorite features of this app are as follows: 1) the ability for both of us to be contributors on the same account 2) the logs for feeding and diaper changes 3) the timers for pumping and breastfeeding. Having both of us logged into the same account helps us keep track of how long it has been since we fed our daughter, as well as notice trends that we can share with the pediatrician. For example, when my husband gets home late in the evening he can jump right in to help out with a feeding since it’s easy to see when our daughter last ate. I’m doing my best to breastfeed every 2-3 hours so it’s helpful to be able to log this and keep track over time. I also love the feature that lets you record how much you pumped on each side. I’ve been able to see very easily that one side typically pumps much more than the other. I knocked off 1 star because there have been a handful of times that the app has not updated/synced in a timely manner so one of us hasn’t been able to see a feeding or diaper change that was put in by the other.
Pretty good app
Glow baby is great. It has lots of tools to help you keep track of things involving you, and your LO(s). You can track diapers, feedings, sleep times, and it even has a timer for when you pump. There’s much more that you’ll have to see for yourself. It even has an entire community, which I believe is tied to the Glow community in general. There are lots of threads, and forums, ranging from talking about pregnancy, weddings, what to eat for dinner, stubbing your toe yesterday, and much, much, more. This is where I docked one ⭐️. A lot of the community is great, wonderful, and beautiful, but, much like the rest of the internet, it is FULL of incredibly toxic people. These people will degrade, harass, insult, and bully you. They are relentless, and single minded. The reason I docked the ⭐️ is because, even though there are rules to the community, those people will bend, and break, these rules, even though they agreed to these terms. They get away with it too. Nobody is held accountable. I’m still going to continue using the app. It’s incredibly helpful. I’m just going to stay away from the community tab.
Like it, but could use a couple things
Overall this is the app I liked the best for logging everything for my babe. I like how it’s shown in different colors and it displays it on a graph for the day. There are a few things that could help a mama out. A nice feature would be Widgets... for quick logging. During the day when we’re out and about I don’t log as much because I have to go completely into the app each time. Glow does have an app for the Apple Watch and this has helped with the quick logging. Another nice feature would be notifications for synced users/ care givers. Sprout Baby would actually send me a notification when my mother would log that my baby was eating or that baby had just fallen asleep for a nap. It just eased my mind to know what was happening when I couldn’t be there. In Glow Baby there is a feature to export data into a PDF.. I have yet to have this work. I exclusively pump and it would be nice to see my statistics other than just for the day’s, this is said to be on the PDF but I wouldn’t know because it hasn’t worked. Overall I like the app and will continue to use.
This app is a lifesaver. You really don’t realize how quickly time is passing with a newborn. You could be thinking “why is my baby crying? I feel like I just fed her!” And believe it or not three hours have gone by without you noticing. But you don’t have to guess with this app: It helps you look at things objectively and above all relax. I am 99% of the time able to check this app quickly and know exactly what she needs because it also helps you discover feeding patterns and what is “normal” for your baby. My life would be much more difficult without this app. The only thing I wish they would revise are the articles as they often present conflicting information, which can be terribly confusing for a first time parent. But other than that, this app is incredible and actually kind of fun. You can even link your spouse or a babysitter to it so they don’t have to do any guess work either. My husband loves using it as well. Great job, Glow :)
I’m not a huge fan, it’s very average, and I trialed the premium version! I’ve been shopping around and tried multiple apps to see which is most user friendly and meets my needs, this ain’t it. My biggest issue is it’s not detailed enough and there’s no place to add details. I think as a mom we want to be able to add notes to various entries. That’s not possible within the app. There is a notes section, but it’s in general and you can’t go back to edit or review easily. I want to be able to add notes to diapers if there’s a problem to track, or to feeding if my baby threw up for example maybe from something I ate, or even sleep. And most of the standard options within the app (ie medication, symptoms, etc) you can’t edit or customize. Also no place for doctors visits or notes for that. And while there’s a place for milestones, no separation for other fun moments that aren’t considered a milestone. Its just too basic for my taste especially for the price. I guess you pay for the Baby 411 book, but it’s just not worth it in my opinion. And the community section is like all social media, there are trolls and people that give horrible, wrong advice.
This Momma’s favorite app
To say I like this app is an understatement. My husband and I tried, unsuccessfully, for 7 months to conceive our second child. Then I remembered using the Glow Ovulation Calculator to help track peak times to conceive for our first child. We literally got pregnant the next month. I used the Glow Pregnancy app all throughout my pregnancy until the day I gave birth to my daughter. Now I’m using the Glow Baby and it has exceeded my expectations. The articles are very informative and generally exactly what I need for that day. I love the notifications as well that give you information about what you have logged recently. Being able to track when, how long and which side I nurse makes it amazingly easy to keep track of. Also logging dirty diapers is wonderful to be able to easily see if she is getting the nutrients she needs from my breast milk. I can’t recommend these apps enough!!! Please download the bundle. You will not regret it.
Great app for tracking the essentials!
I love this app. It has been extremely helpful for me as a first time mom trying to exclusively breastfeed and learn how to do so, while also navigating the craziness of caring for this new tiny human and with barely any sleep. I love that it tells me which boob i used last - I rely heavily on the app to remind myself how to switch to keep my milk supply up. I also use it to keep track of how long it’s been since last feeding to make sure I’m waking him up enough to get his weight back up. The standard version is more than sufficient and so well written, you don’t really need to get premium unless you’re a stats nerd like me and like to see weekly summaries etc. you can get all the info you need out of standard if you don’t want to pay the pricey fee. All in all, LOVE it! And my pediatrician did too. ❤️ thanks glow baby for making this crazy time that much easier!
TERRIBLE Homepage Redesign!
The new redesign of the homepage just took the app from being five stars to two! I used this app with my first child and was excited to be using it again with my second. Now, I hate it! I told my sister about this app as she is currently expecting her first child, but will need to rescind that recommendation. This new redesign is both unattractive as well as inconvenient. Logging information is no longer as easy unless you want it to be a feeding, diaper change, or sleep pattern. I never logged sleep information, but did regularly log pumping sessions. With this new redesign, I can no longer see (without doing the math myself) how long it has been since my last pumping session. I also enjoyed being able to view the overall calendar/daily log from the homepage. Now you have to go to the “analysis” section to find this information. Please just change it back. You have added so many new steps for your consumers to find the same information that was once easily accessible. What was the point of that??? Severely disappointed!
This is a great app has made tracking my newborns feeding and dirty diapers and his sleeping very well . My son is strictly breastfed so you have that option or it does have the bottle option of breast or formula milk . I pump in occasionally too so there’s a section for that as well gives me the option of selecting what Breast and how much oz was pumped from each side . I also like that it has a medication tab which I use to take note when I give him comic drops or his vitamin D drops . It also has to track their emotions like a fussy tab or a crying, happy etc. I really like the app and the random facts it gives you I like going on the community group to see if what’s going on with my newborn is normal like if I have any concerns . Honestly it’s a great app its just expensive to go premium I believe it’s monthly too that you pay other then that it’s a great app
I mostly love this app. It tracks everything I want and it’s simple to use. However, I have a few complaints. Premium isn’t transferable, so when my husband purchased Premium on his phone, it didn’t do us any good because I’m considered the “primary” user. That means that he can’t add any additional caregivers and we had to double pay so that I can add my mother. It also doesn’t let one user start the sleep timer and another user finish it. That means that I have to go get my husband’s phone to start her sleeping after her middle of the night bottle because he’s the one who will need to mark her awake in the morning. Also, it lets you track things like medication, but the medication isn’t available on the “Pattern” screen, only the “List” screen. This is an issue because seeing a symbol on the Pattern screen would make it easy to see at a glance that she’s gotten her meds every day instead of having to scroll back through days and days on the list. Finally, when I was using the breastfeeding timer, it would let me swipe away to other parts of the app while the timer was running but not when the timer was paused. This meant that I had to either run the timer while not breastfeeding if I wanted to double check her last nap or diaper or I had to remember how much time she nursed in one side and redo the timer when I went back in. Overall this app is better than others I’ve used, but there are some definite drawbacks.

I am no longer receiving daily analysis updates. The last one I got was on Saturday mentioning that my baby will be 6 months soon. Now nothing. Is it just never going to update me again?
