When you have a new baby, you might find it helpful to track their feeding, sleep, and diaper changes to work out their routine – I know I did. Here are some straightforward and easy-to-use apps to help you stay organized.
. The app lets you log each feeding, diaper change, bath time, and nap -- plus other details. You can track a total of 14 functions. Follow your baby’s patterns in order to develop a schedule. I like that you can add extra children, and log milestones, doctor visits, growth, vaccines, and allergies.
. Keep track of your baby’s feedings, diaper changes, sleep patterns, mood, activities, medications, milestones, and temperature. The ability to add other caregivers to the app to keep on top of your baby’s needs was a great collaborative effort for my family. The graph feature is especially handy – it lets you see patterns developing for things like sleep and feeding.
Baby Activity Logger
. Developed by three dads, Baby Activity Logger allows you to quickly and easily track all your baby’s activities. I like how easy it is to use and that it tracks data like the total amount of time my baby has spent eating during the day. Whether you’re using an app to track daily activities or milestones, as a monitor, or just as a means of capturing and recording memories, just remember: there’s definitely an app for that!
