Love the app but recent update has a bug 5/5
Recent update is causing the time to disappear when I push sleep to end my child’s sleep. It becomes blank. I push it and let it sit for a sec to see if my kid actually is awake or not and then when i look again, blank. Didn’t do this the last 2 years i’ve used it, just after the last update
Great app. Makes it easy to not have to write down everything. I used iBabyLog and the developer stopped updating so i lost all of my older kid’s stuff I marked as it doesn’t work with the new iOS which is awful and was afraid i wouldn’t find a good one like that, and this def is. I wasn’t finding another app that could combine it on mult devices like the other app until this one! I really like that you can mark something and set it up for someone else to have access to doing that on their phone too. So convenient and that’s the main reason I went with this one over every other one.
Such a great app!! 5/5
This app is so easy to use, I love it!! It makes breastfeeding so much easier when I can look and see what the last side I nursed on, gives a total each day for how many minutes per side, and keeps track of how long since she last ate!
One suggestion I would make to make it PERFECT would be to have a sleep tracker for mom and one for baby. I’ve been using the sleep tracker to get an idea how much sleep I get with a 5 day old newborn but I also want to be able to keep track of how much she sleeps too!!
Right at your fingertips, easy to use, peace of mind knowing how often your baby is feeding
I hope they change some titles to activities.
Expressed to bottle-feed. Also allow us to input dates and times instead of scrolling - this is so annoying to do with one hand 🤬
Really useful and free 5/5
I’m not sure what I would have done, if not for this app! Excellent and free of cost. I absolutely love it and helps me keep track of everything with my newborn! Would highly recommend to beginners.
Missing edit feature 3/5
Since the recent update I can no longer make changes or delete an entry. Please fix!
Does not sync 4/5
Update: Developer has fixed the sync issue.
The new version looks great, except that’s useless to me because it killed syncing between devices via dropbox. So now I should wake my partner to ask her how long it’s been since the last feeding? Awful changes.
Last update is garbage 2/5
Two stars because I used this app for four and a half months and liked it (and even paid for the chart system - not worth the money IMO, it doesn’t even let you decide when the “start” of a day is, nor compare charts between babies for those of us with multiples), but the most recent UI update made the whole app totally unreadable. Please change it back or at least allow users to revert in preferences. Whitespace isn’t useful. Having to decode icons isn’t a good user experience. Put the information back on the main screen!
Update: Developer reached out to condescendingly suggest I use the legend buried in the settings menu. The problem I’m criticizing in my review IS that you buried the meanings in a settings menu, guys. Tiny icons (even at the largest font settings) with a few pixels’ worth of difference between them is an unhelpful way of expressing information users want to take in at a glance. Good UX would mean nobody has to go looking for definitions. Lose the pride and listen to your users; there are dozens of reviews saying the same thing about this UI overhaul.
Apple Watch - disappointing 3/5
I wish that when I paid for the full version to use this app on my watch that I would’ve know that it doesn’t show up as an option for the face of your watch app to easily see which side you need to nurse on next... that’s the only reason I paid for the full version and now I have to open up my watch and find the app to see when another app I had for breastfeeding tracking would show right on the face of my watch with the clock... please add this feature. Another disappointing function is not being able to start your timer on your phone and then stop on your watch and vice versa. If I accidentally forget to stop the timer on my phone and then sit down to nurse later with just my watch I can’t stop it and start a new one without having to stop the timer on my phone.
Lost a good feature in an update 4/5
I love this app but in a recent update for the apple version, I lost the ability to toggle between time displays. For example when baby went to sleep once marked it could either read 7:45pm or 2hrs and 20 minutes ago. You could toggle between the two by tapping the area. Now it will only read the “2hrs and 20minutes ago” version. It was really helpful to have both options of information. Is it possible to bring that back?
Easy to use 5/5
Very easy to use and great features like ability to set timers. Wish I could look at pumping volumes separate from feedings, but otherwise it’s a great app.
Sync between devices doesn’t work anymore 3/5
The new version is problematic, as complained by other users. Moreover, the sync function between devices doesn’t work anymore. I logged something on one phone, and it didn’t appear on the other.
LOVE this app- so many built in features! 5/5
I had used this app for my first, and didn’t realize how awesome it was till I tried a different app with my second. I wanted to be able to use my Apple Watch, and didn’t want to pay for premium (although, a one time payment of $5 seems worth it, esp when most baby tracking apps make you pay a re-occurring subscription fee for premium features). There were many features I missed when I tried the other apps.
I love that this app has widget capabilities- it’s so nice swiping left while my phone is locked to see how long it’s been since my baby ate/slept/was changed. And my favorite thing that this app has, that most apps are missing, is the ability to see your inventory of frozen breastmilk. I always I put how much I pump, and therefore, freeze, and put in how much bottled breastmilk my baby gets, and the app can tell me exactly how much I have in my freezer.
Definitely recommend. 10/10 in my book
All we needed for tracking our infant’s progress 5/5
App has all that we are needing, from feeding (bottle, nursing, expressed feeding),dirty diapers, medication, shots, pumping. All of the items needed to be tracked are very intuitive to report start and stop times, how things were done like bottle feeding or wet / dirty diaper. Three functions that I truly enjoy is multiple devices share same data, analytics on each of the activities and you can start a timer for feeding, leave the app and come back when your done feeding to end the timer. Great work dev team!
Great app. 1 suggestion 5/5
By Mrs. Callanan
This is truly a great app!
I would like the potty option under diaper changes! I’ve been using this for 2.5+ years with my first and now 10 months with my my second. I am currently potty training my son and would love to keep track on his potty uses!
Can that be added?
LOVE the syncing feature 5/5
We just had our son and this app is everything we needed! We love the feature that allows us to be able to log in from multiple devices and update it from both parents’ phones.
The app is not intuitive at all 1/5
Maybe there was some recent version for this app, but setting up a group to sync is not intuitive at all. Once I did figure it out (read the FAQs), and I started entering diaper changes, feedings, etc, I accidentally made a duplicate. However, I cannot figure out how to delete these multiple entries. There’s an FAQ that answers this issue, however, it does not work (swipe left to bring up delete). I ended up adding three more duplicates and got really frustrated.
App deleted. Don’t waste your time if syncing between spouses.
Almost perfect 4/5
This app does everything!!! I love how easy it is to use. I would have given it 5 stars but it really needs a night mode... the white background is way too bright at night. I wish I could make it darker for night feedings.
Super helpful 5/5
I have the worse memory and it was interfering with remembering when my daughter ate, what side and even how long she slept. This app has helped me keep track of everything. I feel more confident when discussing her patterns with others and most importantly her doctors.
Lifesaver for underweight baby 5/5
I’ve used babytracker since my baby was 4 weeks old. He has had many health issues that include weight gain issues and allergies, so tracking how much he eats and sleeps has been vital. Plus, having him spend his first 6 months during flu season was stressful, and being able to log temperatures and medications was essential when reporting to the doctor. He’s 9 months and I still use it. Every time I go to a specialist appt, I review his eating and sleeping habits, which had helped us identify allergy triggers. This app is very user friendly and tremendously helpful to this sleep deprived mom who can’t remember anything!
Great App 5/5
Love this app for breastfeeding.
Absolutely incredible! 5/5
This app was definitely designed by a mom engineer. The infinite ways in which you can record data and the graphs displays are incredible. Everything you could have ever thought that you need is here! It is nice looking and very user friendly. If you want to get “fancy” you can go to the preference menu and adjust everything and anything to meet your needs. Really well done!!!!!
My Grandson 5/5
By Bounce Pounce
Love it! 5/5
This app is very convenient and easy to use. I love everything that I’m able to keep track of, such as diapers, feeding, whether it’s nursing or formula, and sleep.
$4.99 for full version 4/5
By Very nice :)
I tried the 14 days trial period and I love this app. Especially the Apple Watch function b/c I can just access all the info w/o constantly going back to my phone. However, $4.99 for full version seems to be quite expensive for an app that I’m only using for couple of months...would consider purchasing this app if it was $2.99 or smth less! So that’s why I started looking elsewhere and found “WebMD Baby” app FOR FREE and that app works about the same (if not better) than this app! Just saying...if this app was cheaper, I would have purchase it already and wouldn’t be looking around and found a FREE app..
Great app but don’t like the change 4/5
Love the app, hate the recent update. I liked the way it looked better before. Wish there was a way to undo the update.
Great App! 5/5
I’ve been using this app to track everything for my newborn from feedings, to diaper changes, and even my frozen milk supply. Love this app! It’s been a life saver for keeping us on a schedule.
Absolutely perfect! 5/5
I previously wrote a lesser starred review stating that a recent upgrade had placed ads at the top of the screen and over the pic you download of your baby/child. After submitting my review the developers changed this and they are back at the bottom where they belong.WOW! So here I am giving them the 5 stars they deserve for doing so and for having a wonderfully easy to use and helpful app that all new parents and caregivers of small children and babies should download.
Love this app 5/5
It tracks everything we need to track for the baby, and for mom too.
Doesn’t sync properly between devices 1/5
Only the pumping log syncs between devices. I (father) can’t keep track of mother’s logs for feeding, diapers etc.
Almost Perfect... 4/5
The one main thing that I would like to see changed would be the measurement options. I realize that you can choose mL or ounces, however, I chart my pump sessions in mL to be accurate but when I look to see how much my baby has eaten I like to view in ounces.
Also, I can’t quickly convert my inventory from mL to ounces in my head so I either have to use a calculator or go change my preferences back and forth.
I suggest that you update the app so that a person can either tap on the amount to change it back and forth just like the time format option, or you could add this as an option under preferences. For instance, I could choose mL for pump sessions, but choose ounces under expressed feedings and inventory amounts.
Other suggestions would include:
1. A place for mom to document medicines. I had a c-section and had to take pain medicine but I had to keep track in my note pages. Also, I’m having to take breastfeeding supplements to make sure I produce enough milk for my baby. The medicine has to be taken 3 times a day so it would just be helpful to keep track and remind to take the medicine.
2. Preload common medications such as Motrin, Tylenol, Gripe Water, Gas Relief, etc just like you have done under the vaccine tab. That would be super helpful, or have a place where you can put how many mg are in each mL since infant and children’s dosages vary depending on the medicine.
3. Under the flag tab I would like to be able to drag and drop the 4 most common selections to be listed first. I don’t typically use the Joy tab very often since I just take all the pictures with my phone and are listed in my camera roll. I may want to move the medication tab to the front if it’s something I use multiple times a day.
Overall, excellent app. It’s the best one I have found so far that tracks most everything. You can definitely tell that parents and breastfeeding mothers were a part of creating this app and is very helpful!
Peace of mind! 5/5
Seriously the best app to keep track of baby feedings and to remind you about it. Being slew deprived and overwhelmed with the newborn life, this app has given me peace of mind and kept me sane. It tracks how many ounces baby eats and how many times. I love everything about this app!
Miss the real time feature option 5/5
Really great app! I have used it consistently with my daughter and it's been awesome in helping me keep track of everything in a time I feel extra forgetful! Love it!
PLEASE FIX TIME/TIMER BUG!! 2/5
The time/timer doesn't switch back and forth anymore. If I tap it, it just goes to where I can add an entry. Whichever setting it was on when I updated, is the one I'm stuck with for each. Frustrating and annoying.
Great app 5/5
By Jeniffer 4
This has really helped me pay accurate attention to how many times I nurse baby doctors always ask and I never remember so it has been a great help.
Thanks for making app makes life easier
Terrible Update 5/5
The new update is horrible. The graphs used to be easy to read. Now they have these bar graphs with no gaps with slightly different colors to differentiate days. This is very poor work.
Great app 5/5
I only use the nursing and pumping trackers. I love the simple functionality of the app, so user friendly! I also really like that the pumping section keeps inventory of your milk supply!
Excellent app!! Very satisfied mom! 5/5
I really love this app. I’m able to keep track of the feedings, side of feeding and the amount of wet diapers. The app creates a diagram and a table that I can show to the doctor to examine my baby’s progress. Thank you for this app
1st day using 4/5
By Samantha H Rodriguez
I like the app it seems to have everything but I would also like features for the mom such as tracking her breastfeeding supplements like mothers milk tea, raglan rx, or ability to add anything down the log such as shopping needs ex. Diapers or wipes purchases, expenses summary. But so far so good and happy it’s free!
Please fix! 1/5
Have used this invaluable app for over 4 years... Paid for full version within first month of using it in July 2015... it has MORE than paid for itself... Love to look back at my son’s stats and reminisce... Currently using for my 7-month baby girl, and again couldn’t manage life without it!! So thanks for making baby tracking a breeze! 💕
HOWEVER... I hate to say it, but I’m not a fan of the update... Please allow a way for mommas to switch from the updated version to the “classic” view... Everything else is perfect! So please add this feature!
(Will fix review back to 5-stars after change)
EDIT: If a classic toggle isn’t a possibility, can you PLEASE adjust the white space on the main screen?? On the previous version I had only 4 data inputs shown and it allowed a bigger pic of my baby girl to be shown... Please it’s such a simple fix... I’ll get used to the update I’m sure, but the massive white spacing below the pic is hugely unnecessary... Adjusting the font size does nothing... Allow them to change in accordance to font size preference please! 🙏
Perfect for keeping up with my twin boys! 5/5
Created separate profiles for each baby and now life is a breeze!
Fantastic app for first time parents 5/5
Straightforward interface, very easy to use. I used it to track breastfeeding for the first few months, baby’s growth trajectory, etc. it is super useful to have the data at my fingertips.
Most used app right now 4/5
I use this literally hundreds of times a day. One feature that would really make a difference is reporting not just daily averages but current minute averages. For example how many ounces of expressed milk have we given baby on average by the current time, sat 3pm. Knowing yesterday’s total is nice, but doesn’t tell you whether you’re on track to have an above or below average day. Knowing that would help me understand if I need to slot in an extra feeding. Same goes for any metric.
By proud feminist
The app makes like so much easier. I never have to save brain space to remember when the last anything was. I just say “Hey Siri...” and boom logged. The only thing I think could be fixed about it is that it should automatically stop a sleep timer when you log anything else. Otherwise I love this app!
No watch functionality? 1/5
Why did this stop working on my watch?! My watch now tells me to upgrade to the full version. Did I miss something?
Great tool for parents 5/5
Easy to use does all the functions you could want great for first time parents
An excellent app 5/5
Worked great for me and mine. Super appreciate how easy it is to export data. Two thumbs up.
Used to love 3/5
I used to love this app. I HATE the recent update. I don’t like the way the days/weeks summary is displayed. It’s annoying to have to scroll down forever to find the day or time I’m searching for. I also hate that the ads have moved to the top. Annoying. Only good new feature is night mode.
Version 4 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 5/5
This app was a solid one, but version 4 was a huge improvement. They’ve thought of everything and I love that they unblocked the charts for the free version. Wish version 4 would’ve been around when my infant was a newborn! Would highly recommend this app.
