Ok, that last post broke my blogging impasse and now I have to share something amazing.
Let me go back for a second. When I started pumping, my sister recommended iBabylog. It's free, so I got it, but I didn't like it. I'm kind of a graphics snob and it was just ugly and not super easy to use. So I just logged all of my pumps in my notes. Yeah, not special at all.
Now that Dylan is home, I knew I needed an app to keep track of his feedings. I did a very small amount of research and narrowed it down to two apps: baby connect and some other one.
I bought it a few days ago for $4.99 and I'm seriously in love.
First, you can share the account with anyone who takes care of your LO. So Mr. GG bought it last night and instead of texting me in the MOTN how much D ate (he did this two nights ago and it really pissed me off...so tired), he logged it straight in the app. But grandparents, nannies, anybody can use it.
Second, and probably most importantly, as soon as I click the app open, it tells me how long it's been since Dylan last ate (or last pump or last diaper change). I can never remember exactly when it was so this is amazing.
Third - it keeps track of just about anything you could imagine. I'm currently using feeding, pumping, diapers, immunizations, stats (i.e. height, weight), and activities. But it's got sleep, mood, a diary, pictures, lots of stuff.
You can even have the height and eight plotted on the growth curve.
This almost annoyed me because it went by D's actual age instead of his adjusted age which makes him so far below the growth chart, he'd be in Mexico. But in preferences, there is an option to chart by due date instead. Score!
Fourth - You can graph any data entered in multiple ways. I can look at number of feeds, total volume, average volume, and interval between feeds. I love data so I stare at this all day long to see if he's improving.
Baby Connect is not paying me to say any if this. But I think they should! : )
There are many more features that I didn't even mention, but just get it. I highly doubt you'll be disappointed.
