Works ok most of the time, cluttered, lots of unnecessary extras 3/5
My overall opinion of the app having used it 6 months (premium) is in the title of this review. I don’t feel like putting in the effort to find a different tracker at the moment.
I don’t like the new icon that came with this last update. White babies get enough representation; what about the other babies and their families? The “G” icon was more inclusive. I don’t need the app icon to show a picture of a baby to remember what the app does. Maybe I am the only person who cares about this, and I already went ahead and emailed their support, so I’m just taking another (more public) shot at it.
It’s not like I’m going into a rage about this; I just want the developers to think about the message this icon redesign sends.
Awesome app! 5/5
5 stars hand down !
Life saver 5/5
I absolutely LOVE this app for tracking breastfeeding! There is nothing worse than not know when you fed last or which boob you used last and this app does it all! The free version is everything that I have needed and gives great insights as to what is normal and makes you feel reassured!! This was also awesome in the beginning to track wet and dirty diapers!!!
Great to track! 5/5
Good tracking system, nice graphs, easy to use! Could have a few less ads.
Thankful mama 5/5
This is a great app to keep up with your new baby’s stats! Super helpful
WORST APP EVER!!! DO NOT USE!!! 1/5
Under NO circumstances should you EVER support this app in ANY way!!! Absolutely HORRIBLE!!! The “insights” they give are stupid, useless, and sometimes downright DANGEROUS!! The administrators also play favorites and cherry pick which rules they enforce and with who. They CLAIM to be anti bullying yet encourage fighting by banning the victims of cyber bullying and allowing the attackers free reign because IT GETS THEM CLICKS AND DRAMA SEEKING ATTENTION!!! Don’t bother writing back, admins. We both know you’re not going to actually do anything to benefit anyone but yourself.
App Icon 5/5
Please turn the app icon back to the simple swirl. The current weird animated baby face is not pleasant. Thanks. Otherwise this is an excellent app and I have actually recommended it to my family and friends already.
More obnoxious with every update 1/5
By Ravi Hiranand
My wife and I have been using Glow’s pregnancy and newborn tracker apps. Both start out as wonderful experiences... and then they get worse and worse over time.
When you first use them, the apps are clean, they’re helpful and a joy to use. But over time they layer more and more paid premium features. I don’t mind locking stuff behind a paywall. What I mind is getting full screen ads pushing me to that paywall all the time. I mind intrusive and misleading UI elements that lead you to “accidentally” tap on these paid features because the free stuff is now obscured and hidden away.
The latest Glow Baby app has the most disgusting one of all: A video ad that plays with volume. It cannot be stopped. It cannot be muted. Even if you’ve got the mute switch off on your iPhone, you’ll get a LOUD video ad blaring from your phone. There is, theoretically, a mute button on the video. It doesn’t work. In fact, it shows that the video is muted while it’s playing at full volume! (Before you say this is a one-off bug limited to my iPhone, my wife has the same thing on hers — different model, different iOS version.)
Remember, this is an app you’re supposed to use with newborn baby. Good luck using the sleep timer when, as soon as you open the app, you get a loud video ad.
New app icon is so ugly 1/5
The new app icon is so ugly it really annoys me. I’ve been using the app for over 18 months and it used to have a sleek looking icon and now is really cheesy and really makes my home screen look bad. Might stop using it
Great app for baby and parents! 5/5
New mom alert 5/5
New mommy brain over here. This helps keep me organized. Plus my husband can keep track as well.
Makes keeping track of everything so easy. So far no glitches or annoying pop ups. Best tracking app I’ve found
Very informative and helpful 5/5
Easy to use platform - lots of information on the tabs and groups!
Easy to use 5/5
I love how I can keep track of babies bowel movements, when I fed and which breast I used. It is super helpful. I only which I could make notes somehow like if he slept poorly or well etc.
Great app 5/5
Helping keep track of things makes life easier
Great tracker 4/5

I love it
Great trackers 5/5
This app is invaluable for tracking data and accurately informing your pediatrician. Great way to track sleep, diapers, and feedings!
Great app! 5/5
By Happy First Time Momma :-)
I started using Glow Baby after I used the original Glow app to track my ovulation and Glow Nurture for watching my baby develop. Glow Baby is so easy to use and I love how you can track everything and setup caregivers so they can log for you when the baby is not with you. This is the only app you need for baby!
MUST HAVE FOR EVERY MOM 5/5
I just third child... Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to successfully breastfeed with my first two kids but I wanted to give it one last final shot. I wish Glow Baby was around through my last two! This app was just what I needed to guide me. I can look back at any time and see how well baby and I are doing. The learning aspect of the app is a must also. The resources are provided in a timely and relevant manner, and even though this is my third child, I found there is still plenty to learn!
THANK YOU! 5/5
By lil leeesaaaa

Love the user experience and the ease of adding data.
Great app 4/5
By Financial Awareness
Sometimes the day begins to run together and so I forget when my baby woke up from a nap or last had water. With this app I’m able to keep my son on a more regular schedule. It’s very helpful. It would be better minus the ads but I’m not going to pay for upgrades so it works for what it is.
Great for tracking and easy to use 5/5
By A Frew
Loved using Glow Baby for our first baby. The App is super easy to use and helpful for tracking baby’s schedule. As a data nerd, I loved that we could extrapolate the inputs to see growth and our baby’s change over time. Our pediatrician also loved it!
Best app 5/5
Love using this app as a new first time momma. :)
Love it 5/5
I love tracking poop.
Only tracker needed 5/5
By Layde Love
I’m a FTM who’s breastfeeding. I knew it was going to be hard for me to track feedings, sleeping, and diaper changes. So glad I came across this app. It has saved me many times during those late night feedings and busy days where it seemed like 2hrs was 2 mins ago.
No good. 1/5
Waste of space. Glitches a lot and most women are judging you for EVERYTHING
Good idea, unpolished app with janky bugs 2/5
It’s a good concept, however the all suffers from few problems :
- too many tabs and things that makes the app extremely cluttered and at times confusing to use.
- the premium vs non premium insights is confusing and sometimes the “tips” almost feel like placeholder content its so generic
- the groups and recommendations are poorly designed
- articles link to non credible sites with viruses and spam
- the recommendation option tried to load an in app browser to add product link but doesn’t work at all. Tried to recommend a product like 3 different times never worked
- daily log often is buggy and have old logged events on top of timeline
Needs better UX design overall and fix your bugs!
So grateful for Glow Baby! 5/5
With a newborn, sleep deprivation and hormonal shifts, it is difficult to keep up with the timing and details of feeds, diaper changes, and pumping. Glow Baby is my best friend! Thank you for this incredible application to ease this new mom’s mind and heart!
Needs a bit of tweaking 3/5
This app has all the functionality you need however it rarely syncs correctly from device to device and user to user. If I put a nap in on my iPad, it won’t sync to my phone. And forget it if my husband puts something in from his app. It’s frustrating to always have to be double checking.
Okay for one thing 3/5
By C Robi
Good for tracking feeding times and wet/poopy diapers, but the articles are lazily done and unhelpful and it doesn’t give you the option to turn them off. It seems like it tried to pack in as many features as it could with minimal development. The app would be better if it improved on its tracking section instead of trying to do so much. Truly a Jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none situation.
Highly recommend 5/5
I love this app! It’s so helpful for tracking feeding, diapers and more. I would be lost without it.
3rd time mom 5/5
I love it. Easy to use.
Love this app, I just wish... 5/5
By Jesus Freak-Lexi
I love this app so much for my baby. The premium is totally worth it. I love the fact that my husband, mom, and mother in law can all input data from their own phones and it syncs up. I do wish that we could sync the owlet monitor with this app and it would be incredible if there was a postpartum section to record the medicine I’m taking and when I’m eating and how much water I’m drinking all in the same app.
So helpful for a sleep deprived parent 😴 definitely helped out this one! ❤️
Love this app ! So much to do on it 😊
Love it 5/5
Yo this is it all you need to keep track of your baby s activity, feeding and everything else I’m on this app more than any social media. I highly recommend. Especially first time moms. The fact that I took the time out to actually rate my first app should say a lot lol.
Teamwork makes the dream work 5/5
This app is perfect for keeping changes and feedings organized! It keeps my husband and I sane; we no longer have to start conversations off with “when was the baby last...”
Excellent baby tracking device 5/5
I was trying to track manually and rely on memory and realized that was not working out. Hapa on YouTube mentioned this app and I’ve been in love with it ever since downloading it
Easy to use 5/5
My husband and I use the app all the time to help keep track of our newborns activities (feeding schedule, diapers, and baths). Thank goodness for this app! I don’t know what we’d do without it.
Great Baby Tracking app 5/5
Has everything you need, with great charts and analysis
Great app 4/5
Overall a great app, I like the tracking features & love the “pattern” view to see trends in how my baby eats & sleeps. The app is a bit slow since the most recent iPhone update, & some of the articles aren’t as helpful as I’d hoped for. But in total, it’s a solid app & very helpful.
Love this app!!!
Great app! 5/5
I love how easy it is to track and keep up with my baby’s feeding, sleep schedule and diaper output. Great for first time moms and dads!
4 stars 4/5
My only complaint is that if you have multiple caregivers it doesn’t keep track between the two documenting. For instance my husband would put that my child was sleeping on his phone(app) and when I’d check my phone(app) it doesn’t show.
Honestly this app has been a huge life saver for me! Especially with having mom brain and not being able to remember everything all the time , it definitely helps me out and brings me comfort knowing it tells you what’s normal and what’s not , and when to talk to a dr and all that! I love it
AWESOME for new parents 5/5
The BEST app to keep track of feedings and diapers, especially as a new parent!
Awesome App 5/5
This app has everything you need to track progress of baby. Good job !! I recommends getting the premium version while using this actively, happy parenting!! 🥰🥳😀
Love the simplicity to use and all the options!!
