Over 1.7 million parents have downloaded the WebMD Baby app to track their baby’s development and get trusted, physician-approved advice. In this single, free app, you’ll have the right resources to raise your infant or newborn.
Five comprehensive tools to keep track of important needs for infants and newborns:
- Breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, and solid-food trackers -- record and review all your feeding and nursing sessions, including both breast milk and formula.
- Sleep tracker: Records not only time of each session, but location such as crib, car seat, stroller, and more.
- Diaper tracker: Keep track of each diaper change -- dry, wet, or both.
- Growth tracker: Allows you to record height, weight, and head circumference.
- Baby Book: Capture your baby's memories and share them with collaborators. (Note: videos cannot be shared or backed up due to file sizes)
- The nursing and feeding trackers allow you to schedule reminders and even base them on previous feedings.
- Collaborate with your partner, relatives, or caregiver to keep track of all your child’s needs. Tracker updates sync across all devices.
- Now you can use the feeding, nursing, sleeper, and diaper trackers on Apple Watch to add new entries and receive reminders.

Ratings and Reviews
I have been using this app for about 2 months now and I love it because I am able to track feeding schedules and I like timing how long my son has been eating for. The problem I find is that when I set the nursing timer and then exit out of the app to look at something else, the timer will reset back to zero as if I didn't start it. This has happened multiple times. At first I thought I was just not thinking clearly and must have forgotten to set it, but I have tested this out a few more times and it keeps happening. I found that I have to wait about 20 seconds before I can leave the timer screen and I have to keep checking back with it in order to make sure it's still working. This is extremely inconvenient especially for sleep deprived parents.
Little data analysis- and lots of glitches
We chose this app because it has the ability for multiple users to enter data from
Multiple devices- after using it for 2 months now- this is about the only good thing.
We track all food and diaper activity. Every single bit. Yet- there is no way for me to see trends or an analysis. Aka - what's the average diapers per day? Can I get a graph depiction? There are really easy things to add to enhance- but this has nothing. And from WebMD I'd expect more. The worst one is the feeding though. Honestly? No way to see daily totals side by side- at least? I am impressed by the LACK of data analysis- which is the most important thing for new parents- KNOWING how their little one is doing. If we use the app- we need to be able to analyze the data.
I will be looking for alternate apps and will manually transfer everything if I have to. That is how frustrated I am getting. For new parents- if you want to know your averages for your little one- don't waste time using this app- it does not provide you that option!
Also- it glitches. We have lost records because of it and - had some unfortunate "midnight discussions" about not logging information- when it turns out they had!
Annoying and buggy
My wife and I have used this for the last six months to track our baby's diapers and bottles. The one shining feature is the ability to sync between phones.
That doesn't make up for the terrible input controls. See, every time you input a bottle you're presented with a scroll wheel control. This is fine if you're tracking in oz, I suppose, but we track in ml. There are two wheels, one for the number and one for ml or oz. We have to pick ml every time because there no way to set a default, and if you accidentally bump the wrong spot on the control it switches back to oz and you have to re-scroll all the way from zero to 180 or whatever. Super annoying. A number pad would be so much easier to use.
This app also lacks any sort of reasonable reporting or export. The most you can see is a day at one time and there is no way to see, for example, a graph of total eaten by day over the past week. There's no way to get a spreadsheet of the data either, so even if you wanted to make a graph in excel it's impossible.
Oh, and in a recent version they added ads that cover the input control sometimes but not always. Extremely annoying at 2am.
