Best app for tracking all things baby!
They have really thought about just about everything on this app! All of the functionality you could want (even has light/dark mode so the white isn’t too bright during night time feedings!) and the app is very intuitive. Only thing I would like is an option to add something miscellaneous to the schedule, like a bath. I have a hard time remembering which day I last gave her a bath lol so it would be nice to be able to add that in through a miscellaneous option. Right now I track it in the “Notes” section of the temperature option because I don’t take her temperature very often. Overall though if you need an app to track sleep, eating, etc. this is the one to use! My baby is too young for the sweet spot but once she gets a little older I’m excited to see how that works as well. She sleeps pretty good so I am not going to pay for premium at this point but if she starts struggling with getting sleep I may be willing to pay for it!
Loved it but...
The notes part of the app has been VERY glitchy for weeks now, as I type it’s like someone hits the delete button in the middle of me typing, it sometimes takes me 3-4 tries to type a single letter because it will quickly erase it. It’s tricky enough logging stuff with a baby in my arms, fighting with this glitch doesn’t help. Can take me several minutes to write a few words with this issue! This only happens in this app, so it is definitely the app and not my phone. Also, I wish there was a way to REALLY customize the input categories. When my son was very young he spit up A LOT - which can really affect how much he ends up with in his belly after a feeding. Wish I could have added a category to log things like that because it didn’t always happen right after a feeding where I would add it as a note on that feeding. It’d be nice if there was an option to make your own categories- maybe even come up with responses to check off like the current categories. But I’d be happy enough just adding notes throughout the day that aren’t part of another event. Side note to last bug fix - download update that fixed bug where nursing timer continues after being paused which I don’t think ever happened for me, but I was hoping maybe the update might fix the typing bug..... my app has a NEW issue of the timer continuing after I pause it 🤦🏻♀️
This app is incredible. It can be really hard to find a good sleep routine for a baby and everyone seems to have an opinion on what to do or not do and it ends up being very confusing. This app lets you identify your own goals and then sets a plan customized to your goals and preferences instead of forcing you to do something you don’t think will be right for your family. The app is very user friendly and I haven’t encountered any bugs. A friend told he about the app and she waited rather than paid for the advice because she wasn’t sure if it would be worth the money, and after I spoke to her and got the app, I paid for the quicker response and it was worth EVERY PENNY. Within days of using the tips we say improvement, with my six month old going from a horrible regression of 10 wakenings a night to two or three (which I customized as being ok for me, but I’m sure you can say no to that if that’s your preference). Love, love, LOVE HUCKLEBERRY!
Amazing. Wish I knew of this sooner.
I read a few reviews of huckleberry and seriously laughed in anger. Boohoo, your baby only sleeps in 4 hour stretches! I have a 6 month old, who prior to downloading this app only slept in TWO hour stretches all day all night. Actually, day naps were 30-60 min on average. Then night sleep = up every 2 hrs. I had been tracking his sleep in a note pad in hopes of figuring out a pattern, then thought “there must be an app for that” enter: huckleberry. What a saving freaking grace. Since following the sweetspot feature we’ve figured out his optimal wake windows which has resulted in better day naps and night time sleep. Let’s knock on wood, but the last 3 nights have been magical. He would sleep 7 hrs the first stretch from bed time (645pm ish) and then up again 4 hours later. He’s up for the day around 5:50-6am, so we are working on a later morning rise, but overall OMG. I feel human again. Thank you.
Nap time has returned!! 🙌🏻
Thank the lawd for the good people at the Huckleberry Sleep app/Baby Sleep Science. My husband and I used their services via this app twice-at roughly 12 mos and 18 mos for our little guy, who had always been a decent night sleeper and TERRIBLE napper. That said, I wish I’d had the app earlier on, when I started to structure nap times around 7-8 months. I’m a SAHM and while I have a background in early childhood ed, I was not prepared for how much confusion and self-doubt could come along with ensuring proper sleep habits for my son. Huckleberry was a lifesaver-we charted sleep patterns for about 7-10 days each time, answered some really thorough and thought provoking questions and were rewarded with a detailed, cohesive plan for remediating our son’s disordered nap patterns. As I write this, my almost 19 month old is cozy and snoozing for his afternoon nap which now averages 2 hours a day. Sweet sweet rest time for mama! In short, I HIGHLY recommend this app for all parents!
I finally gave in and paid for a monthly subscription and I am so glad I did! I’ve really enjoyed using the free version, logging my 6 month olds sleep and following the “sweet spot” suggestions for nap times. The paid subscription gave me such good, practical and down to earth advice! I feel like I have so many tools now as I begin to work with him on reducing his night time wakings and feedings as well as lengthening his daytime naps. I also like this app because it gives options for gentle approaches without making me feel like I’m crazy for not wanting to do the “cry it out” method. I actually feel excited for this journey! $14 is really nothing compared to what some sleep experts charge for their programs! It seems very worth it to me! Now... fingers crossed that I see some progress with my sons sleep!!!!
My favorite sleep tracker EVER (free version)
I can’t speak to the subscription service with the sleep tips, but what I mostly use this for is the “sweet spot” feature. It tells you the best time to lay your kid down so that they’re not A. Not tired enough, or B. Too over-tired and hyper (like my daughter gets.) And it’s been right for the whole week I’ve been using it! You can use the same account across multiple devices, so phone/iPad, or someone else’s phone like a spouse/babysitter/family member. You can even set up notifications to alert you when they’re going to be sleepy soon, and you can adjust the time for the alerts to give you plenty of time to get home, have a snack, etc. Love it, love it, love it.
When you’re a parent desperate to get everyone’s sleep schedule on track, you do things like pay $20 for a sleep expert to “help” you—pronto. Yes, you could opt for the free version... if you’d like to wait 12 business days. But as I’m sure the brains behind the app suspected, desperate parents will pay $20 for a response in 2 business days. The “help” I was given was generic information I could have (and have) googled about typical baby/toddler sleep schedules and routines. The information we received was by no means life changing, and honestly not really helpful at all. Our little one’s sleep patterns are still so unpredictable and all over the place. We put our little one down at the scheduled time recommended by Huckleberry and we’re going on 90+ minutes of her playing, crying and not sleeping. But if I want to contact Huckleberry again for help they will just keep charging my card. I honestly can not recommend this app to anyone desperate for sleep or a semi regular schedule. I wanted so badly to love it and for this to be the answer, but... nope!
First time baby made EASY
First baby, don’t know what I’m doing. Thank goodness for Huckleberry. No joke, it makes parenting an infant SO much easier. Always knowing when the next nap is is invaluable. Plus, the app is accurate DOWN TO THE MINUTE! 30 minutes ago my son got fussy, but I knew his nap wasn’t for another 25 minutes, so I was able to focus on what else could be going on. Because we track his feeding, I also knew it wasn’t time for a bottle. Turns out his diaper needed changing and he was uncomfortable. Then, he fell asleep on the exact moment the app said he would. I mean, what else do you need? When people as for parenting advice, I only say “get the Huckleberry app.” This is the greatest app of all time.
Great app to help your child sleep better!
We highly recommend this app! Our two toddlers went through a period when they would try to delay bedtime, get up multiple times in the middle of the night and wake us up, or rise up earlier than usual (even before sunrise). We put in our son's sleep times and answered some questions about his habits and routines, and then we received very detailed recommendations on what to do to help our kids go to bed and stay in bed. Within two weeks, the nighttime wakings became less frequent, and now it no longer happens. Our kids get more sleep, which means we also get more sleep! The app is also very easy to use and visually appealing.
The app can’t add
I like the sweet spot notifications which let me know the best time to put my daughter down for a nap. I’ve been aiming to help her sleep between 14-16 hours a day which is why I downloaded the app. Which brings me to my issue with the app- when you click on the “summary” tab and select a day you’ve recorded, it gives you the total number of hours slept for the day- which is actually tallied incorrectly. I went back to the “list” tab and counted the amount of hours of sleep she had under yesterday’s date and came to 13, but then the summary tab lists her total as ten. For the last week I have been relying on the summary tab to see whether she met her sleep goals for that day and all along the hours listed under summary didn’t match with the hours logged. I was making parenting decisions with my infant based on an app that can’t do basic math
Apple Watch co-application?!
I love this app! Though I thoroughly believe in trusting my “mom-instincts” this app sure is nice when you have a toddler, part-time job, and need to remember feeding and sleeping intervals for your infant. We even did the sleep analysis and it’s very helpful. I just wish there was an Apple Watch component when my phone isn’t within reach. With my extreme mom-brain it’s super efficient to record as I’m doing each task (which I could do quickly with my Apple Watch) rather than estimating and backtracking when I finally have my phone. Thank you Huckleberry! Your features are intuitive, helpful, and a great record of my little one’s progress!❤️
Free version is a great sleep tracker
This review is just for the free part of this app. I’ve really appreciated having an easy to use baby sleep sleep tracker and I’ve found the sweet spot (nap time) predictions to be fairly accurate. Sometime it is spot on and sometimes my son is ready to nap 20-25 minutes before the given time. (He’s a baby, not a robot after all!). So, when used in conjunction with reading his sleep cues, it’s been really helpful. I have not yet paid for the sleep consultant advice portion of the app. Since this is my third kid and I’ve already read a couple books on infant sleep, I’m guessing they would probably tell me stuff I already know.
New UI Color Pallete
I love this app and have recommended it to several up until this new UI upgrade. While the color palette may look more appealing from an aesthetic perspective, from a functional perspective it is very difficult to decipher the difference in these colors that are so close in shade. Particularly, the lime green for naps and hot pink for feedings were just easier to identify quickly in the calendar chart. Now everything just gets lost on the chart and I can only immediately see the bar for night sleep because it is the longest. Everything else just blends together. The key on the calendar page is no longer there so after the colors changed I don’t even have a quick reference for what all these similar looking colors mean, ex: orange, gold, brown, what are these colors referencing now? Old color UI was so much better!
This app literally changed my life. My 7 month old was taking erratic, very short naps and it was driving me crazy. He was also waking once or twice a night to eat but that wasn’t bothering me as much. However! After 1 week of using this app he started taking regular 90 min naps AND sleeping through the night!! He is now 12 months and still going strong with his sleep. I have told all my mom friends about it and they’ve had similar results. I can not recommend this enough. I never even did the paid option, but I’m sure if the free app isn’t working well enough, it’s worth it.
