Love this App
I use this app more than any other non native iPhone app. It's been so helpful in tracking my daughter's feedings for the last 4 months. I love that it helps keep track of not only time, but also which side you fed from last. I mainly only use the feed timer and feed logs, but in the beginning I did use the diaper log to make sure she was getting enough food. Once she started having so many diapers that it was hard to keep track of I figured she must getting enough! My only suggestion would be to have some type of do not disturb time period. Now that my baby sleeps through the night most of the time, I don't need the audible sound going off at 2am telling me it's time to feed her. The visual alert is ok, but I could live with out the ding. I don't want to turn the sound on my phone off, but would love it if I could set a time frame say from 11pm-7am where the app wouldn't produce that alert sound. Thanks!!
Super helpful and easy to use
This app has been so helpful! I've used it for almost 5 months. The timeline feature is the best--you can see at a glance what kind of feeding schedule (or not) your baby's settling in to. If you need to add bottles and expressions, just click at the top of the log. It's also easy to edit. For the early months when the baby sleeps all the time, it's great to keep it simple and just track feeding. Now that the baby's older, I have to find an app that tracks sleeping, too, and this one set the bar high! I hate to have to give it up. The only change I'd like to see is more that one week of data available in timeline format (one week per view, but more than one week visible by scrolling to another page, for example. Don't mess up the timeline format. It's perfect to see a whole week on one screen.
I'm breastfeeding my second child and was having trouble keeping track of daily diapers and overnight feeedings/ diapers. I downloaded this app while still in the hospital and that alone was worth its cost to be able to answer the nurses on progress. I've been using this diligently at home to help determine if I should pump off between feeedings or if another feed is coming soon. Only issue/ lost star, is the notification is often wrong for what side to start on. It appears to have you pick up on the side you finished on.. Regardless if you actually used both sides for a session.. So you often need to double check your start side. Otherwise it's been indispensable. It does keep track of expression/pumping too. Only wish of offered solids in the same app.
