Overall pretty good 5/5
Like some of the other reviews, I agree some of the functionality should be reworked but overall I think it’s a great app. It’s allowing us to track our newborns feeding progress and my pumpings etc. which was desperately needed since our baby dropped too much weight week one. We will continue to use!
When your tired and can't remember the last time you fed, or what side, or how much meds you gave last time, then this is helpful. You can track everything.
Useful but continuously shuts down/freezes 2/5
This app was great on the beginning until it just started shutting down and freezing my phone. I suggest they update the app or you look for another product.
Easy to use. I love it.
Wish it had iwatch compatibility 4/5
This is my second time around with my second baby is in this app. I use this mostly to track nursing sessions and to help me determine which breast I need to feed my baby from. I like the reminders it gives me, however, I wish the reminders would alert me to which side I nursed from last and to be able to start the timer right from my iwatch instead of having to open the app on my phone.
Great app but still could use some work 4/5
I’m a new mom of a three week old and this app has been so helpful keeping track of everything. I downloaded maybe 25 apps and liked this one the best. Below are my pros and cons list.
- simple interface
- ability to edit end time and/or number of minutes spent on an activity (a lot of other apps only have the ability to edit the number of mins but sometimes you don’t know how long you spent feeding)
- the notification counter to show how many timers are on from the home screen
- difficult to find and see trends (graph section could be more useful)
- view needed to see pumping and nursing only.
- need option to auto add medication for when we set reminders so we don’t have to manually enter the same info in when we give the dosage
- timer to be visible and controllable on multiple devices.
- diary view to show end time
- need ability to edit start time when setting a timer (not just when I stop the timer)
Used to work well 4/5
Updated: restarted my phone a couple times and got it to somehow work again. It may have been my phone that was the problem!
Loved this app with my first baby 3 years ago. Now for baby #2 I keep having little issues here and there with it freezing. Then all of a sudden all my pumping sessions turned from oz to mL and I can’t change them back. Every time I try, the app closes on me. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app and am having the same issues. Looking for a different app now.
My lifeline 5/5
I have used this app for 13 months. As an exclusive pumper, it has helped me keep track of my pumps as well as how much she drinks. I have even programmed things such as to give her a bath every third day. I can also log her vaccinations. Very helpful app!
12 weeks of use 4/5
I love this app. I use the free version.
My main complaint is that if my baby falls asleep before midnight and wakes after midnight it’s all in the same day.
He just slept 7 hours for example. But it all shows up under yesterday and not split like it should be. This drives me nuts..
Great to keep track 5/5
Love the app
It’s free and does basic things but here’s a list of negatives:
1. Terribly illogical way of grouping feedings together. Marks two sets of feedings - three hours apart - as one feeding. Totally non sensical.
2. Too much clutter. The user interface could be a lot cleaner by letting users select what they elect to track rather than keeping them all on the main page.
3. It requires pushing too many buttons.
Great app 4/5
Loved the app, does what we need between mom and I. Can you update for the iPhone X sometime? 😉
Thanks in advance guys!
Great App needs Apple Watch 4/5
New Parents here, love this app, dead simple to start tracking everything and giving reports to doctors, spouses, etc. It would be great to see this on the Apple Watch as we can’t always get (read, find) to our phones to start timing things.
Nice features, but crashes frequently 2/5
I like many of the recording features for this app, but it freezes/crashes at least once a day. I have installed the most recent update, so I’m not sure what the issue is. I really wish it was more stable.
We love the app!
Great app but drains my battery 3/5
I love this app and the way it lays out the history of breastfeeding and time between feeds. I like how easy entering in diaper changes are.
My two challenges with this app is that it drains my battery very quickly and I end up need to charge my phone multiple times a day. Also the app is very slow in refreshing when you go from background to active.
2 babies, 2 good experiences 4/5
By Lauren E.S.
I have used this app through two babies now and I’ve really liked it. I purchased the full version pretty early on so I could keep track of sleep and meds for my middle child. It’s very easy to use and allows me to be pretty detailed in keeping track of things. It’s nice to be able to keep track of so many things, even tummy time and baths! My tired mom-brain doesn’t have to struggle to remember all that stuff
There are some things that could improve - the charts are fairly useless, I wish the notifications were more like an alarm, and the sleep section could highlight when the child woke up rather than when he went to sleep - but overall it’s a great app.
So far so good but drains battery quickly 4/5
Much easier way to track feedings and diapers especially when your a zombie mommy and can't remember things.
update caused logout and loss of data 1/5
last time this app got updated automatically on my wife's iPhone , it logged her out without trace. Then she kept entering baby data into the app for months without successful sync and thought it was a glitch to the sync. But then when I helped her signed back in, all the months of data on her phone got erased. thanks a lot for losing user's important baby record!
Breastfed baby 4/5
I like to keep track of time and what side I was on last. Due to the fact we’re sleep deprived we don’t remember. This app does just that for us!
Downside, it freezes a lot and when my phone turns off due to it being over 2 min when I go back to check I have to close and reopen app frequently.
It would be nice to have the home screen in the app have the left and right at the top so you could open app and start immediately instead of having to figure out where breastfeeding is clicking into that then getting to the start point. When baby is hungry we need fast and efficient or I won’t end up using app and log later.
Over all great app for keeping track of time and side. I’m going to explore app more as baby gets older.
Easy to navigate 5/5
Very helpful to keep track of feeding times and amounts. And it's free, but I would love the option to pay to get rid of ads.
Easily tracks everything you need to note 5/5
Only annoying thing is the constant requests for likes on Facebook!
Good concept, too clunky 3/5
I love the idea of this app, but I think they try to squeeze too much in and really messed it up. It moves very slow sometimes. The ads are super annoying because it always launches you somewhere else. It even has weather, seriously I don't need the weather in this app. They just put too much and it really slows it down.
New Mom 4/5
There are a couple of things I’m not sure about with this app. It may be because I’m not using it properly. Or, I am using it properly and these points are things that are being worked on.
I wish there was an alarm clock and not just a notification sent for when baby needs to be fed again! The notification doesn’t wake me up in the middle of the night. I still end up using my alarm clock or timer to time 3 hour stretches. Also, it would be nice to see a trend from day to day. Like a comparison chart from one day to the next to see if my baby is feeding on a pattern yet (she 2 weeks old). Other analytics like, baby is eating every x hours. Oh and, when the baby cluster feeds, there’s no way of knowing when to feed again, when she is done cluster feeding. In the dirty diaper section, maybe include the recommended amount of BM diapers and Wet diapers depending on age. Please forgive me if this review makes no sense, I am a bit sleep deprived because of my brand new baby princess!
Needs a widget 3/5
By Deesa 0
This is a really handy app. A widget for the nursing feature would greatly help. Imagine trying to unlock device, open an app, then press start/stop during a midnight feeding. Hard. Being able to stop/ start from a lock screen- splendid. Please provide a widget.
Keeping track 5/5
This has completely saved my life as a first time mom and breastfeeding at that! I highly recommend this app to alllll mothers or even people who babysit frequently for people who have small kids!!!! AMAZING!
Very helpful 4/5
This app is nice for tracking all things baby. Really helping me to keep myself on track for feedings and diaper changes. Like that I can add notes and other details to each entry, manually record a feeding session or time it, and I receive auto-notifications to remind me to change my baby's diaper after a feed.
Why 4 stars? The number of in app notifications asking me to upgrade, write a review or like on Facebook is a bit annoying. I wish it only asked 1x per day max.
Nice app! 4/5
Good functionality and tracking ability!
Useful, small lags 4/5
I like this for the early days of tracking diapers, breastfeeding, and nap times. There is a bit of a lag, and it's pretty resource intensive--no other app drains my battery so quickly. But these are not reasons to stop using it yet.
Good app 5/5
Helps keep track when sleep deprived!! :)
Good app 4/5
Helpful in tracking feedings and diaper changes. Con: before every entry a pop up requests an app rating and your location
Super helpful for new parents 4/5
By Sara Horn
We’re using this with our newborn daughter and we love this app! Easy to use, and while we’ve only really used the breastfeeding and diaper trackers so far, I’m sure we’ll start using the other features soon as well. It’s so nice to be able to look at when the last feeding was, especially when you’re sleep deprived and can’t remember much most days! Would love to see this work with Apple Phone and Amazon Echo/Alexa.
A little confusing 3/5
Could be a little more user-friendly and fewer ads.
Love it 5/5
Lov it. 5/5
By Ta kaa
Good app. I can keep track all my baby stuff. Easy to use.
Used with Both My Kids 5/5
I've used this app with my daughter a couple of years ago and now again with my son. I only use it for diapers and nursing. It appreciate all the other features too! So easy to use!
Good but 4/5
Wouldn't leave me alone about rating the app. Seriously! Every time I use it. Leaving a review so I can use the app without a pop up. Would've been 5 stars
Easy to use 5/5
Great for keeping everything in one place. Actually has way more functionality than I need for one baby. But I bought the upgrade so I have the multiple kid option for our next.
Awesome app 5/5
So helpful with keeping up with feedings and sides!!! I've used it for all 4 of my kiddos.
So far so good 4/5
I like the app. Easy to use. Still learning as a ftm so it gets a 4 out of caution. Keeps reminding me for a review so that also makes it get a 4.
Useful app, sleep tracking needs a change 4/5
I have found this app to be very useful in tracking my baby's schedule and routine. Spending the money to get rid of the ads was well worth it to me. The only part of the app I don't like is the way sleep is calculated. Instead of tracking how much my baby sleeps in a 24 hour day, it tracks a 24 hour day plus however long her last sleep is. If she falls asleep at 11pm and doesn't wake for 6 hours, those last 5 hours don't show up in the correct day's total. They are added to the previous day which makes it difficult to see how much she is really sleeping every 24 hours.
So far so good 4/5
I haven't been using this app for very long but have found it useful. I am writing his review so the app stops asking me to review it.
Overall Good 5/5
This is a pretty solid app. Criticism is in regards to lack of some easily parsed charting/data, ex ability to view right and left pumps separately over time.
Absolutely useful app for first time mom 5/5
We are using this app on every day. It's simply best tool for first time moms.
Has all my needs plus 4/5
I would give 5 stars but the pop ups drive me nuts.
Helpful in and out of hospital 5/5
Really helped us keep track of diapers and nursing while still in the post partum unit. Love the tracking and easy to use start/pause/stop functions.
The best 5/5
Very happy with this app, especially bc you can sync with your other devices
User friendly and accurate 5/5
This app is great for keeping track of nursing and pumping. Highly recommended for moms wanting to track all the important things while breastfeeding (diapers, nursing sessions, pumping, bottles, etc).
Ad-free version purchase not for multiple devices 1/5
I bought the ad free version, assuming this would remove ads for all devices that are logged into and synced with the Baby Nursing app account (I’m using the app from multiple Apple devices). It turns out I was wrong and the $5 purchase doesn’t unlock it on all devices, even after clicking on “Restore Purchases”. The app customer support team was disappointing - they said it should work, but they can’t help. I was told to connect Apple instead. This company seems to not care about paying customers. Very disappointing.
Great app!! 4/5
I've only been using it for a week, but it has been extremely helpful! It makes tracking the activities so effortless and helps me to manage my day.
