“Simple, quick and easy to use – a must for night feeds!”
Recommended by NHS midwives across the UK. *****
Time Magazine says:
"Baby Feed Timer, an elegant app that makes tracking breastfeeding a cinch, with perks.
The feed timer gives you 'left' and 'right' buttons (large buttons, thank goodness, so they’re easy to hit if you’re simultaneously cycling the baby through different feed positions). The best part? The 'analysis' screen."
Designed by and for breastfeeding mothers who want to track when and for how long their baby feeds, including a useful reminder for when a feed is due. It even tells you which breast to start on!
Baby Feed Timer does it all for you!
Tracks breastfeeds, bottle feeds, breast pumps, nappies, sleep, solid food, baby's weight and baby's length. You can also make notes (ideal for recording baby's temperature and medicine given) and set notifications/alerts.
You can even synchronise the data across different phones (both iPhones and other phones) and view your data online at babyfeedtimer.net, making it easy to share baby's day with your partner or carer.
Quickly log data about baby from your Apple Watch. You don't even need to get your phone out of your pocket!
Data is analysed ready for you and your health visitor and shows daily, weekly and monthly averages.
See baby's day at a glance and spot trends quickly with easy to read charts.
√ Personalise the App to your baby by adding a picture, baby’s name and date of birth. It even tells you how old your baby is in weeks.
√ Use the App for more than one baby. Whether it’s a sibling later on or twins or more with full support for multiple timers!
√ Easy to use one button start/stop timer, especially useful during the night feeds.
√ Log breastfeeds, bottle feeds, breast pumps, nappies, sleep, solid food, baby's weight, baby's length, make notes and set reminders.
√ Synchronise data between different phones (iPhones and other phones). You can also view baby's data on babyfeedtimer.net.
√ Apple Watch App. Quickly log breastfeeds, bottles, sleep, nappies, and breast pumps from your Apple Watch. Apple Watch also tells you when the next feed is due. It can even be used when your iPhone is switched off or not nearby!
√ Night mode. The App detects light levels and automatically selects a night or daytime theme.
√ Focus on what's important to you by selecting which activities you would like to be displayed. You can even customise it further to show them in the order of your choice.
√ See baby's weight and length plotted against data from the World Health Organisation to see what percentile your baby is in.
√ Pause button. Ability to pause the timer during a feed.
√ At a glance view of how long since baby last fed, next feed time and which breast to use next.
√ Notifications to alert you when next feed is due, showing which breast to use.
√ View when the next feed is due from your lock screen.
√ Analysis of the data including average time between feeds and feed times for the day, week and month.
√ Easy to read charts displaying analysed data, as well as a timeline view so you can see emerging trends, such as baby feeding or sleeping at the same time every day. This also helps to show days when baby is acting differently such as more dirty nappies than usual.
√ View how long you have fed your baby for that day. Particularly useful for mothers who are monitoring if baby is feeding enough.
√ Manually add feeds if you miss one as well as edit feeds.
√ Add notes to existing logged feeds such as if baby was sick or fussy during a feed. You can also add a note to the log diary itself, for example, you can log baby's temperature and medicine given and optionally set a reminder for the next dose.
√ You can choose if the next feed is calculated from a set interval or using current feeding trends.
√ You can swap breasts during a single feed.
√ The option to email your data to your computer.
+ Fixed a bug where certain logs where being displayed with incorrect indentation on the Logs screen
Ratings and Reviews
Good app but missing one critical feature
I really like this app, but one of the main focus areas for any new mum is sleep, and the sleep timer isn't properly integrated 😕 The "feed timer" tab should just be called "timer" and it should include a "sleep start" button, rather than having it hidden in logs. But most importantly you should be able to see time since last sleep/awake time at a glance. I'm switching to a different app because of this - but do let me know if you fix your app... I'd happily come back! 🙂
• the addition of a milestone tracker (eg "First bath"). I use the reminder feature to insert notes, but it's not ideal.
• a temperature and medication tracker, including time since last dose.
• like you have the "baby has been asleep for x minutes" alerts, it would be even more beneficial to have "baby had been awake for x minutes" alerts, as this is critical information, particularly in the early weeks/months.
• ability to write notes about the feed during the feed, like you can for sleeps.
Absolutely worth it!
I never thought I would be the mum that had a strict routine for my baby and I figured we would just go with the flow and feed on demand, however being able to track and see how she likes a certain natural routine anyway has been great to figure out when is the best time to go out and also helped me to learn what her little queues are and what each cry means. I would recommend it to any new mum whether you want a strict routine or not! It’s super handy! :) happy customer! Happy baby! Happy mumma!
Best app I ever purchased
First time mum with preterm baby.
This app helped me to track feeding and nappy record so easy. Used to write down to keep a record but having the app on the phone made it so easy. It helped me to answer most of questions that I’ve asked by doctor to track my babies improvement.
Best $$ spent on great app.
Anybody looking for a app to track feeding intervals and outputs, highly recommend.
