Glad it has data analytics 4/5
Love this app. I can review averages and get insight into how she's doing. I'd like to see more user flexibility on what data to show, aka able to turn off or on sections. I'd also like to see an average time between feedings. Ideally I'd like the data summary page to show me average daily total, average amount per feeding, average time between feedings, and average diapers. I'd also like it to have a growth section like the WebMD app (only part of that app I like) so that we can track growth percentile etc.
Love love love 5/5
I love this app! It is literally the only app I have ever purchased or reviewed. It has everything you would need.
Small suggestion: would love a section on the daily recap to make personal notes such as teething or traveling. This would help in looking back and seeing why certain days were different or when these events reoccur it would help prepare. Also would love to be able to customize what is shown on the main page and be able to reorganize
Great diary but could use UI/UX updates 4/5
Easy way to track my infant’s feedings. However, the UI isn’t the most user friendly. I use the free version of the app. Overall, has all the tools I need.
Great app 4/5
I’m a first time mom so I worry about EVERYTHING! This app makes it so easy to keep track of a lot of the important things. Will give 5 stars when I can change what shows up on the main page. Not everyone pumps.
Great tracker app 4/5
By Amber KY
The app is great. Loved the fact that my husband and I could sync between an iPhone and an android phone. Have had the app for 14 weeks (since we brought baby home) and it's been amazing for tracking nursing and milestones at the pediatrician. The milestones include percentiles, which is also awesome. The app developers seem to be pretty on top of app maintenance, as they released a version of the app that messed up the font in the app and within the same week fixed the issue. I'd recommend it, but I haven't tried other tracker apps.
It might be cool to be able to attach pictures to milestones or each month if you wanted, Just for future reference.
Like old version better 4/5
By Pink Magnolias
Font is too large
Great except for limited pro version 4/5
I love the app and use it frequently. The only problem I have is that I paid for the pro version within the app and it doesn't apply across all my devices. So I can only access certain features on one device. Wish that would change.
Great App, Highly Recommend! 5/5
Love using this app. We primarily use it to track feedings and diapers, and the UI is super intuitive and easy to use. The information on the most recent activity (eating, diapers, etc.) is clear and easy to see right when you open the app. Plus you can view all of your baby’s activities by category each day in the unpaid version. If you opt for the paid version, you can view the same information in weekly and monthly format to help find patterns or irregularities.
And you can have several users entering data, making it easier to keep close track of your baby’s happenings.
Best of all, the support team is super responsive! I contacted them with an issue and they replied within minutes, and resolved the issue within 24 hours.
Loved it until recent update 5/5
Updated since the font was fixed in most recent update.
We have been using this all since our baby was born and it has been a lifesaver! It is so nice to quickly check to see when he ate last or had a dirty diaper. My favorite feature is the graph where you can see everything from the week! So nice to see how he is getting into a schedule!
Dislike update 3/5
By Taylor V M
We like how we can open the same account on multiple devices. I personally don’t care for how many options/things to track there are, but those things don’t get too in the way.
I am disappointed with the recent update. The selections and type are now too small for my half awake mama brain and have mis selected many things in the days since the update.
Also, the photo at the top need not be so big. I know what my kid looks like, I need to know the last time I changed her diaper
Love it but.... 4/5
The most recent update shrunk everything smaller and it’s much harder to read at a glance especially with a new baby. It was great before when I could glance at my phone.
Issue was fixed within a day. Thank you
Why fix what’s not broken 5/5
I love this this app. Have used it faithfully since little dude was born. This morning i woke up to an update where all the print was super tiny..... This doesn’t work for a nursing momma in the middle of the night when her eyes barely register. I can no longer see how long we’ve been nursing, when it’s time to switch sides etc etc.... please put it back to larger print this stinks!
I wrote this review and within 1 day it was fixed so that everything was again big enough to read. Thank you for addressing this issue so promptly!
Hate the new layout 4/5
Love the app, but the new update made it so much harder to use. When I'm fumbling with a baby and trying to hit the button to start a nursing session it's so much more difficult because it's tiny! Was so much easier to touch the big areas to record diaper changes, feeding, sleep. Why would you mess with something that worked?!
Great app! 5/5
By Another SAFE member
This app is perfect for tracking all of my babies activities during the day, and I would be lost without it. The charting feature is definitely worth the price of the one time fee to upgrade.
Love the app, gave feedback about the updates and they made some adjustments! See EDIT. 5/5
This app is easy to use but since it’s most recent update, I do not like that the start stop and pause buttons and the time are smaller. Also, as much as I like seeing my babies face, I don’t like that the rows for what action I’m dong is smaller. I mostly use this app just for nursing and I’d prefer them be the size they were before. I don’t know about you, but most of the time when I use this app, I’m half asleep and the last thing I want to do is to guess where to tap my phone and have to put my glasses on to see what my time is. Please change it back.
EDIT: Thank you so much for listening to my concerns! I like that the times are on a different row now and the font is much easier and bigger to see. I’ve also noticed that I don’t have to press just on the icon to select my action and that I can press anywhere on the row AND the rows are bigger again! I don’t really use any other part of the app besides the nursing tracker anymore since my baby is older now so i don’t know if there were or have been other adjustments. Again, I appreciate you listening to my feedback and I’m excited to keep using this app!
Love the App- Needs Larger Font for Time 4/5
Loving using this App with my baby but not loving a change in the latest update... On the home screen, the time or hours/minutes since last feeding/diaper change/etc is now in a smaller font and the information (how long I nursed or what type of diaper) is larger. I prefer for my eye to see how long it’s been, especially since a last feeding, but now my eye is drawn to this large font telling me Left or Right. I hope you change this back!
*Wow! Quick response from the App Developers and problem solved! Highly impressed.
Almost perfect 4/5
Update 2: Wow! Baby Tracker really listen to its customers! It’s only been a day or two and they have already fixed the small font.
Update: I reduced the stars from 4 to 3. They just updated the app and a lot of the text is way too small. If it is during the daytime, it’s not that bad. But I keep the brightness on my phone very dim after my baby’s bed time. Then when I go to feed her, it’s so hard to read anything. Some of the text they made bigger. But I feel like they made a lot of the text I depend on really small. Please make the text bigger again. Once the text is bigger I will change my rating.
I really like this app! I think the best feature is that it can be shared between iPhone and android users. I have an iPhone and my husband has an android, but we can both update the info. Most other apps that I found could only do one or the other. Also, it is very simple to use. If an app like this is too complicated, what busy mom has the time to deal with it? Another feature that I really like is that there is a place in each log, for each section (feeding, diaper change, sleep, extras), where you can put your notes. Also it is nice that it shows up in the review screen. I wish it would also show in the main screen too (one reason for the 4 stars instead of 5).
There are several reasons though for giving it only 4 stars and not the full 5. They are just little details, but I feel would make this app way better.
1) I wish that it would update the info a little faster between devices. In other words, after my husband has updated the info on his phone, it takes a little while for it to show up on my phone and sometimes I have to completely close the app and then open it to be able to see the changes.
2) Another reason is that I wish I could see the time range for the breastfeeding and the sleeping in all areas of the app, on the main screen and the review screen. Who has time to calculate the time?
3) I wish the pumped option in the feeding section would have a feature where it allows you to also subtract from the total amount of pumped breast milk that the baby didn't eat. In other words, sometimes the baby doesn't eat all of the pumped milk, but there is only a section to put the amount eaten. So only that amount gets subtracted from the total. When in fact, there is the rest of the milk from that pumping session that needs to be thrown out and subtracted from the total amount of breast milk in your inventory.
4) Lastly, I wish it would show if the baby fed on the right and left or just one breast on the main and review screen without having to go into the individual feeding logs. If it also shows how much on each side when both sides apply, that would be even better.
I guess this kind of became more of a wishlist than a review...
This is great and really a life saver. Though I wish it persists the last viewed chart and take me there directly when I click charts.
Update with smaller text is way less user friendly 5/5
Update - WOW! The developer responded to this issue and has already fixed it! Thanks so much for being so responsive!
This app is great but the recent update to make the picture larger and all the font smaller is not helpful when you are also juggling a baby. Large buttons and large font is the way to go!
Perfect app and responsive developers 5/5
Makes life with a newborn significantly easier and I would HIGHLY recommend to any new mother. Luckily I found this app just a few days after my baby was born and I have been using it religiously ever since. There is no way my sleep-deprived mind would be able to keep track of how long it’s been since her last diaper change or feed without it!
Sidenote: I really appreciate how the app developers responded so quickly to my complaint about the small font size. They fixed the issue almost immediately and the app has gone back to being my trusty sidekick. Keep up the awesome work!
So Useful! 5/5
This app is a great tool! It can be so hard to keep track of when my baby last ate, or when how long ago I pumped. This app is fast and easy to use. I love the graphs and the way it tells you how long ago you did something... eliminating math, which I can't do on 3 hours of sleep anyway :) Very recommended!
Life changing 5/5
I’m a new mom with a beautiful but high maintenance newborn daughter and I could not keep my head straight without this app. Sleep deprivation caused me to forget when I was feeding her and from which Breast, how many diapers she had and what kind, how much sleep she’s getting or when her last nap was, and when I pumped and how much milk. SO many things you have to keep track of and this app does it ALL. You can even set up alarms for all that if you are on a schedule. I went ahead and bought the premium because it lets you see your babies feed, sleep, and diaper patterns and averages. This isn’t necessary to be a mom but it’s interesting to see all her happenings in easy to read graphs and charts. Even lets you track their growth and shows you what percentile they fall under. This app is amazing!
Great app but print is too small 4/5
This is a great app for keeping track of feedings and diapers as well as sleep, medications, etc. I love it and my husband and I both have it on our phone so if one person feeds baby, the other person will see it entered when the app syncs. Only complaint is the last update made the print so small and I have to hold my phone close to my fave to read it now. I’ve never had vision problems and don’t wear glasses. Really wish the print was back to normal size
New update looks awful 5/5
Edit: design has been modified again and it still looks ridiculous on my 5s and 6s but at least the font size issue was fixed so I'm happy.
I've loved this app for over a year - it seemed to do everything pretty perfectly. Before today, I would've given it 5 stars easy. But this latest update (I guess for iPhone X?) looks terrible. Weird font sizes and arguably the most important text (time since last event: feeding, diaper change, nap, whatever) was made small and much more difficult to read. I don't care as much that my kid's last diaper change was wet/mixed (largest text) versus she was changed over two hours ago (now tiny text), for example. The text size for both of these items was the same previously. Maybe it looks different on newer phones but it looks like garbage on my 5s, and I don't see a preference or option anywhere to change it. Disappointing that the value of this app was reduced so much with one change.
Helpful, but interface is awkward 4/5
By poet muse
We have used this app since our baby was a week old. I love having the data and help with tracking his eating, sleeping, growth, and most of all patterns to predict his needs. But, one thing is that the way the app is designed is very awkward. You have to enter into several layers to see some data and enter other data. And the timers are so tiny while the screen is filled with empty space for notes, which we never use. I use the timer when I’m breastfeeding with my phone sitting on the arm of my rocker. I can’t see the times 18 inches from my face but I don’t have a hand to pick up my phone and bring it closer. Why is the design so ugly and awkward?? Anyway, still a helpful app and we will continue to use it!
I don’t like the update format! 3/5
When I look at the display, I don’t need to see how long he ate last or how long he slept- I need the larger display to be how long ago was it! Yes, that info is still there, but for a tired parent trying to figure out why the tiny human is fussing, it helps to just glance and see he ate two hours ago or has been awake for three hours. Please fix it back!
Otherwise, it is helpful when keeping track of feedings, diapers, and sleep.
The latest update looks good on iPhone X. This app is useful to collaborate on baby data with my wife!
Small font 4/5
I've been using Baby Tracker for the past 4 months and love it. It easy and convenient when it comes to tracking feedings and diaper changes.
However, with the latest update I'm not overly thrilled with it. The font is rather tiny, and no there is no way of increasing the size.
Why the change to make the type so small? 3/5
It’s hard enough to see during middle of the night feedings, the type was so big and bold before for times of feeds etc, now it’s sooo small and hard to read. Disappointed, it was so much better before!
Love it... track naps? 5/5
Can you add a feature that lets you track naps/daytime sleep separately from nighttime sleep (in addition to total sleep)? It could just be a preset time like - track time slept between 6am and 7pm and show it in the table and line graph. I want to easily see if my baby is napping less over time.
New update 1/5
I do not like the new update that has reduced the size of the font
Love the recent updates! 5/5
Perfect for keeping track of feedings and sleep time—because, let’s face it—it’s impossible to remember these things when you’re sleep deprived and your days run together. Loving the cleaner layout and pumping alarm! Favorite feature is the nursing timer. Overall, very intuitive and easy to use.
Best Baby Tracker 5/5
By Jean C 11
This app is fabulous. We literally depend on it. With everything going on with new baby we sometimes forget how long he slept or when did we feed him last? The sync feature is so helpful when daddy is holding down the fort and mommy goes out.. all the info is in one place! when the doc asks how much he is eating or how long he sleeps.. it’s just a click away! This app has it all and it’s so easy to use and i love they added alarm for pumping!!!
Not a fan of the update 3/5
This app does what I need it to do, which is keep track of the babies’ eat, sleep, and diaper schedule. But the update (3.0) made all the important things, like the words, super small and made the babies’ profile pictures huge. Why? I’m looking at the kids right now, I don’t need a huge picture of them on the home screen. Also, I use this app as a nanny, updating it throughout the day so the kids parents can keep track of them. I love that you can take a picture in the app and save it there, but I hate how you can’t actually view the full picture. It’s never more than a thumbnail, and now with the update the majority of the screen is taken up by a giant note section. The notes would be nice, but if I fill in the note their mom suddenly won’t be able to see the picture, just the note.
Tl;dr: app is nice for keeping track of baby but design could be way better
New update blues 1/5
I am very frustrated with the 3.0 version. I wish I could go back to the older version because it was easier to read. In this newer version the “action” is in a very large font, but the more important information which is the “timer” is small. The timer is much more important to know verses yes he nursed for 40 mins. I know that I nursed him! What I may not know is how much time actually passed since then.
Another suggestion, occasionally some of the entries get erased by accident if one of our many caregivers selects the wrong button at the top to close the viewer window. For example, we write each other notes and then need to read them. But if we select the X vs the check everything goes away. Have you thought about installing a safeguard window that asks if you want to erase the entry?
Also, when exporting the data charts to Excel the formatting looks unreadable. I’m not versed in Excel enough to fit it so it looks more like the paid version of the app charts.
We do enjoy your app and will continue to use it but these are things that could make a sleep deprived mom happy.
Excellent Baby Tracker! 5/5
This app seems to have thought of things I need before I knew I needed them. The tracking for nursing, diaper changes, pumping and more are simple, easy to learn, and so helpful. The settings allows for the user to personalize how they use the app, and overall, it has been an easy, useful and pleasant experience to use this app. Thank you!
Smaller font 4/5
Hate the update. I have 20/20 eyes and you made it harder to see the important numbers by making them smaller and less important things bigger. I want to see how long on each side in big font while nursing and when I’m not I’d like to see the last time I nursed or how long it’s been since I last nursed big. You made that tiny too. Been using for 8 months and loved it. Just not a fan of update.
Awesome tracker! 5/5
Started with a notebook from the hospital my first month, but wish I started with this from day one. So easy to track feedings, diapers, baths, pumping, and so much more. Love this app!
By far my favorite app in terms of tracking my babies feeding, pumping, etc.
Tip: For new users, you can change the time stamp view by tapping on that text area.
I wish there was an option to add/remove certain categories on there. I don't use the sleeping and diaper logs, so I just want to hide them.
11/14 Update - I'm not a big fan of how small the text are on the main view. It's way too small actually. Is there a way to increase the text size?
The help I have truly needed 5/5
I’ve used this app for 2 years. It helped me manage my time and keep track of EVERYTHING to do with my son.
One suggestion—it’d be interesting if on the graph section that there was some way to see a report of a whole year or even since birth. I think it would be truly fascinating to see just how many diapers I have changed over the course of my son’s two years and such. :-)
Almost there 4/5
By Kernel Panik
I have an iPhone X. So it looks great for me. But the overall font size got a bit small for my wife’s 7 Plus. Now it’s harder to click on the time in the main view to change between last time of an event and how many hours and minutes before. Also still would be nice to add a quick add from the widgets of the iPhone home screen.
A good app that we've used since our son was two months old. Great to keep track and stay on a schedule.
What keeps it from 5 stars?
Two key things to improve would make this great. First if technically possible, being able to start a quick option form the home screen widget of the iPhone would be key. Sometime both hands aren't available with the baby. Start sleep or abreast feeding. Or perhaps from the Apple Watch or Siri to tell the app to start or stop the feeding.
Second and most important in what we track is sync accuracy. We have the two of us with iPhones and syncing to one account. Actually added the second user. Sync happens automatically but you can swipe down to refresh. His works as advertised for everything except breastfeeding. If one parent starts on Left or Right. No matter how often both refresh the sync, it'll never show mom the other's app. Even after ending the feeding, you can't see that he was fed from the main panel. Only going to the daily charts in the list of the day's events will yu see that this occurred. Need to function just as sleep or diaper change. If she starts it I see the in progress and can stop it.
Fix that issue and add some both hands full functionality and you've got yourself a champ app. Thanks.
Fantastic app 5/5
We love it
Perfectly made app 5/5
This app does everything I could want it to do. Sometimes I end up needing to adjust start or end times, or I need to go back and add a missed entry if I didn't have my phone with me when at the time. And I love that it allows me to leave notes for each entry so I can document if she woke up mid-nap and went back to sleep, or struggled with a feeding, etc. It has all the features I would want, they have thought of everything!
It’s great to have one central place to keep track of everything! This app helps ensure we are working on her schedule, while adapting her to ours. It also allows you to find issues that you wouldn’t necessarily notice, otherwise, which is really helpful for medical and daycare staff.
My only wish would be to have a preference to remove Pumping Record and Breastfeeding from the main page for people for whom that is not an option (like with adoption, for example).
So Useful 4/5
Love this app to use with my son. So easy to track everything because I would never remember on my own! There are two things I would change though. One, I wish I could rearrange the order of the categories to log (ex. I don’t track diapers, but that appears before sleep). Two, I wish I could type in the time instead of having to scroll through to find the right time. Overall a great app though!
Huge help for new parents 5/5
By Eastern Market
While there are a coupe of funny UX things, overall this app is a great asset for new parents trying to get the hang of feeding. There isn't much functionality hidden behind the paywall, so it's a great download for anyone trying to keep track of their new baby's health.
A life saver. 5/5
Seriously, I've used this app for 4 months straight. It's absolutely amazing. Helps out a new mama!
Super Helpful 5/5
Really helpful in keeping track of everything. Easy to use. Unbelievably free
Lifesaver and almost PERFECT 4/5
This ap is excellent for new parents! Took a few days to get the rhythm down, but once we did my husband and I could keep organized. Baby Tracker made reporting stats on feedings and diapers to the pediatrician a breeze. Only reason I took away a star is that when tracking the time, I find myself unlocking the phone multiple times to check where I am. This is difficult when your hands are already tied up with baby. It would be excellent if the screen wouldn’t lock while the timer is running. Otherwise this ap is perfect!
