After giving birth, I was so overwhelmed by the constant questions by the nurse. How many many times he soiled his diaper, how long ago, what color, the texture, how many times did eat, how long etc. So i went on a hunt for an application to help me keep these informations close. I found a few ones but one stood out the most “Feed Baby”. You know how easily it is to forget vital information, with a newborn and lack of sleep. The pro version has more features but you could get away with the free version.
It pretty much as everything you can think of from breastfeeding, baby bottles, to even when you start with solid food. For the feeding you have a timer, from when he begins with the breast or the baby bottles and press stop, when he’s finished. It shows you average of bottles, ounces etc. It has reminders for when it’s time to pump again, feed the baby etc. Other options such has sleeping, Medicine, growth, journals, baths. You can add notes every time you enter an information. So when you go to the doctor you have it right there to question or give the right information. The growing chart is basically like what the doctor has, you enter the information from weight, height and head size and it shows you the percentile.
It’s an amazing application, I can’t remember the difference between the Pro and the Free version, I ended up buying the pro version and for those who knows me, I rarely purchase applications but when i do, It’s worth it. It has everything you can think of regarding a baby, no need to write it down and forgetting the paper at home. I would really advise you guys to check out that application, screenshots are at the bottom. You can have a look and feel of the app.
You are also able to sync in between your smartphone and your tablet as long as its connected to the same Android account which is good as well.
