Love this app, but one wish!
I have used and am using this app with my two kiddos. I love how easy it is to use and how customizable the features are. That is so amazingly brilliant! The most powerful feature for me is the timeline and graph feature, because it shows me my child’s progress when I’m in the thick of it, and frustrated about the lack of progress. One thing I would like to ask for, is on the graphs section, I’d love to see “nighttime sleep” and “daytime sleep” buttons in addition to “total sleep”. So yes, I’m asking for total hours slept at night, average length of sleep at night, # of sleeps at night, and the whole thing again for daytime sleep. It sounds like a lot to ask for, but with such a sophisticated software already, I’m sure it can happen! I’ll buy it again! PS. On the days, weeks, month features on the graph feature, I don’t find it helpful to have the totals of whatever for that week or month, but would find it ever so much more meaningful it it was the average of that month’s whatever.
The phone app and website (which is free and looks just fine in mobile view on Safari, by the way, so your occasional caregivers can access it that way without paying for the expensive app) are AMAZING. This tool has every single thing I could ever think to record about my child's life. It takes some practice to learn how to customize the app to fit your needs, and the data export process could use a little work (for instance, there's no way to bulk export ALL data at once), but this app has already been worth the money as I care for my 10 day-old. One of the primary reasons I bought this app was due to the promise of Apple Watch compatibility. While it does have a Watch App, it's pretty crappy. I mean, in theory it's great, but when it does actually load (which is rare), it takes forever and is actually faster to find my phone, launch the app, and log it rather than to try to go through my Apple Watch to log anything. (And my Watch works just fine on other apps so I don't think it has anything to do with my Watch's connection.) Once this company figures out how to make the Watch app actually WORK and be a quick way to log something, I'll gladly come back and change this review to 5 stars.
This is a great app for multiple caregivers for same child. I paid for the app coz I didn't like the ads limiting the screen. Each caregiver can customize their own pages. Ex- my daughter breast feeds and pumps at work. I don't need that info, so I just have "bottle". Also, I don't like BM, so I changed it to "poopy diaper". When my daughter drops my grandson off in the morning, she is usually running late and doesn't have time to give me details about what time he woke up or when he ate or pooped. She just drops him off and I can look on the app to see how the early morning went. Even when I am not keeping him, like vacations, I can still see how he is doing. Grammas miss their little ones. At first when I my daughter told me to use this app, I thought it was silly and she was just using it to spy on me or something. Then she said-Mom, I work and don't get to be with my baby. This is a way for me to be there and have contact with my baby. So, I finally got it. I can write down all the little things he does and she has a permanent record of all that to look back on. For my daughter's and grandson's sake-this app is totally worth it!
Great for twins!
I’ve been using this app with my twins for four months now and it’s great! My husband and my mom have it as well, and I love how you can synch multiple caregivers so any of us can enter information. We track feedings, diapers, medicine, my pumping, naps, and activities like bath time. I love the built-in timers, especially when I pump, and all the graphs it generates (for example, last night I was looking at the volume of milk I’ve been pumping over time to see what the trends are). It’s also incredibly useful to be able to open the app and have the time since their last feeding listed right there. My mom loves how, when she’s not with them, she can open it and see what they’re up to. I get texts in the morning with things like “woah, he went eight hours last night??” And sometimes we even have fun leaving little comments for each other (on a recent diaper change: “it was bad”). I’ve been recommending this app to all my pregnant friends, especially those with twins. It is SO worth it!
Perfect tool for mom and newborn
I loved using this app!!! It is easy to use and easy to navigate! It keeps track of data such as diaper changes (which is important to monitor with a newborn), sleeping time, feeding, etc. The app has very good options for describing what you log. For example, you can specifically choose what consistency and color baby's stools were after a BM (which is useful information for mom/dad to know). My complaints are that there is no way to go back and see individual breakdowns of how many naps baby took, it only has total time they slept for the entire day. Same thing with diapers, no way to go back after several days to see consistency or color; only shows how many diapers of each. This is a big disappointment because you take time out to take the data and then it's kinda lost in limbo afterwards. There is a diary entry option too, but I couldn't figure out how to go back and read my entries. The complaints are the only reason I'm not giving it a 5. Overall, I like the app a lot and I used it everyday in his first month.
I’ve been using this app for 2 months now and really enjoy it. It has all sorts of tracking options and if it doesn’t have it, you can probably add it! It’s nice to see averages for her nursing when we go to the pediatrician. Thank you for this app. Definitely worth the money! One suggestion is for the pumping side of the app. I wish there was a way to connect what I pumped to bottle feeding. I used an app 3 years ago with my son. I was able to “use” milk I pumped for a bottle. When I did this, it would be deleted from my milk supply and added to my son’s milk intake. With this app I go in and delete the entry when my daughter uses it. It’s fine but it would be awesome to show the milk as used rather than deleting it. The other app also kept track of where my milk was stored (freezer, refrigerator, out) and warn me if the milk was close to expiring or if it was expired. Not a big deal but helped this tired mommy have one less thing to worry about.
So worth it
This is exactly the kind of app my husband and I were looking for. We like that he can check on our son’s feeding, diapers, and sleep while he’s at work. It’s also nice to check on when and how much he last ate during the night without having to wake up the other person. Plus, who can remember times and mLs in the middle of the night? Our son is just over a week old, and before purchasing the app (for only $5 each total of $10), we were manually writing down all this information. Of course the app does more. I like how I can enter the vaccine information for the pediatrician. My husband was about to create a Google Sheet for us to share. This is way better. We’ve been using the app for several days now. I love how it syncs all the data all the time. This was definitely one of the best purchases we could have made as new first time parents!
Has almost everything I need!
I'm a first-time mom and this was recommended by a friend. It has been great and keeps track of everything I need to help me answer questions from the pediatrician. A few features I would change/add though: - I wish I could go back to specific days to see details. I don't like having to create and email myself reports to get eating/sleeping times. The timeline doesn't provide anything detailed and only marks/labels the hour every 4 hours. - You can't edit/add entries in past days - The option to keep track of diaper rash both in the diaper module and the food module. It could help me keep track of what foods my daughter has a reaction to. - The option to indicate whether my daughter liked or hated a certain food. A thumbs up or thumbs down selection, for example. - Bigger buttons for the nursing session start and stop timers on each side. Sometimes with one hand and a wiggly babe it's hard to hit that little button and I often end up hitting the number and it asks me if I want to reset the timer. A minor inconvenience but it is frustrating. - A more detailed way to track patterns. I can see trends in the timeline but it isn't very detailed and it would be nice to have a place to see average length of naps, average bedtime and wake up time, etc. - I wish I didn't have to choose a time for medical symptoms like a runny nose. I would just like to choose the day in full. They should also add "diaper rash" to that list and "ear infection".
Great tool for tracking all things baby, but...
My wife and I use this app extensively to track our baby’s daily goings-on, and it’s been great. Every nanny we’ve had (sadly it’s been several) we buy this app for them so that my wife can track what’s happening at home through the app. Up until today it’s worked very well, except now we have a nanny that exclusively speaks Spanish. So that’s fine I thought, the app offers a Spanish language option... except the entries she inputs show up in Spanish on my app, even though I’ve specified English as my language. It would make more sense to translate everything possible to the language that is specified by the individual user. I understand that there’s a case where there is some custom text entered by the nanny that isn’t easily translatable, but that’s very infrequent if ever for our scenario. Typically my baby eats, sleeps, poops etc... those phrases should show up in English even though they have been entered by my nanny in Spanish. Overall good app, but this is a clear bug that needs resolution.
Very Good, but missing some stuff
I used another app “total baby” for all 3 of my kids but unfortunately with my new phone upgrade, the app is no longer available. I picked this one because I thought it fit my type A mom needs. I must say, it’s actually a little too much. I feel like I have to press so many buttons to add a simple entry. I can say customer service was great. I couldn’t figure out how to edit an old entry, I emailed them and received a response very quick with a solution to my problem. -My biggest complaint: It does not allow me to manage my pumped milk supply. My other app recorded if I pumped and froze the milk and tracked when it would expire in the fridge. It also allowed me to manage my pumped milk supply as it was fed to baby. (ie pumped 8oz, baby ate 5oz of it. The remainder stayed until baby drank that milk or I froze it). As an exclusively bf/ work pumping mom this was crucial to me. I think a feature like that would enhance the app, but overall it’s a solid app.
I love it!
If you’re a mom who like to track all your baby feedings and sleeping, this is definitely for you. I used this app regularly for almost 18 months with my firstborn, 3 years ago. At the end I was just tracking his nursings since I kept it as a journal for myself later (thanks to the export option). The sleeping and nursing graphs was so helpful!! I could easily identify sleep pattern issues and put a plan in place so he could sleep longer through the night. If you’re a data and graph person like me this will save your sanity trying to figure out what is going on. A bunch of data is not really useful if you don’t have some reports and graphs to help you. Now I’m 37 weeks pregnant and ready to use it again. I never gave any app reviews but had to do it to thank the app creator for adding so many cool features that helped me so much!
A must for every parent during the first year
My husband and I have been using this app for over two years now. We like it so much that we still record the main events for our son (drop off, pick up from daycare, sleep times, and occasionally diapers and foods). During the first few months we found the app vital since we could get the answers for all the questions our son’s doctor asked us (how much did he eat, how long did he sleep, how many wet / poopy diapers, etc.). I always like looking at the overall gallons of milk I pumped, the number of hours spent pumping and nursing, etc. The only downside I can think of is that we would need to pay separately if we wanted the iPad app. We chose just to use the iPhone app and we like the instant syncing across phones.
I LOVE that this let me keep all the info on my son’s feedings, doctor appointments, milestones, growth charts, even pictures... ALL in ONE place. This app and my obsessive charting has recently saved my son from getting a repeat vaccination that he already received ... he is now 4 1/2 and while he was getting his school readiness checkup, they noticed they were missing some records for a vaccine from when he was around 18months (they had recently updated their record systems and had some files go missing). Thankfully, I was able to go back (nearly 3 years) in my records and show them that he had already had those vaccines. I highly recommend this for any new moms/dads... or those with very small babies/children who are obsessed w/ tracking EVERYTHING.
Only Problem is Apple Watch App
The best possible baby tracking app when you’re in the newborn fog of feedings and diaper changes. I love that you customize the interface and allow multiple people to input items for your child. While the app isn’t the most fancy “looking” app, it definitely works the best. My recommendation is to start using this app right away in the hospital with baby. I wish I was using it from day 1 instead of writing down feedings/diapers for the nurses. Only rating 4 stars solely for the fact that the Apple Watch app needs major improvements. I can NEVER get it load on my watch, and if I don’t completely close the app out after trying, it drains my watch battery. The ability to use my watch was one of the main reasons I chose this specific app. Please fix the Apple Watch app!
I can’t imagine a much more robust app for baby management
That’s right, I said it: MANAGEMENT. Babies take a lot of management! BabyConnect was clutch for us. We only used like four of the features but they were so crucial to keeping our little nugget on track. She was underweight at first and the app helped solve that with the nursing and tracking; but then we hit sleep regressions! Some reading about sleep strategy and tracking her sleep on the app saved us once again. Now things are pretty mellow and we no longer need to track much. We still track her sleeps cause it’s an easy way to keep us both aware of how much rest she has had / still needs at any given point. This app is worth it for any parent who gets anxiety about managing their baby!
