I’m a huge fan of the iPhone…and my iPhone rarely is far from me. I use it to check email, compare prices at the store, track business mileage, get directions, listen to music, and play games. I’m always on the lookout for apps that save me time, save me money, or save my sanity.
This past week, I have been testing out a new app that I think will be beneficial to many of you with babies. The Similac Baby Journal iPhone App will track feedings, diaper changes, sleep habits, and growth. It will even help you predict patterns! After you’ve downloaded the app, it’s super easy to start using and very self-explanatory. If you’re a mommy of multiples, you can track the important info of all your little ones by setting up separate profiles for each of your kids.
It doesn’t matter if you’re breastfeeding, bottle-feeding or doing a combination of both, the Baby Journal app has you covered. There’s an easy to use feeding timer that you can start and stop with the tap of a finger. If you’re breastfeeding, you can track which side the baby ate from and the time they spent chowing down. If you’re bottle-feeding, you’ll be able to track how many ounces they ate and how long it took to eat. You can even call their Feeding Expert 24/7 if you need some expert advice!
It can also track diaper changes…in detail. You know how new moms like to talk about poop and all the gory details? Well, I’m not a new mom and I don’t like to talk poop, so all the diaper change options made me gag! If you’re still in the diaper changing stage, I’m sure you’ll find this to be extremely helpful! You’ll be the coolest mom on the block when you can not only talk poop, but show graphs and charts with all the pertinent info.
The app also allows you to track sleep and growth. This information is easily accessible with the tap of a finger and can also be emailed to family, friends, or your pediatrician.
I’m a huge fan of this app and think it is a must have for moms with babies! It’s a great way to keep track of all the info you need without pushing your sleep-deprived self over the edge…and it’s free!
