WebMD Baby: Feeding, Diaper, and Sleep Tracker
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.

What's New in Version 2.3.5
- Bug fixes and performance enhancements
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.
Works but wish there was more
This seems to be the best tracker app (with great WebMD information backed in) that I could find with a reliable watch companion app. The others I have tried (sleepbaby) which were paid apps did not deliver properly on the watch side (glitchy).
Back to WebMD Baby. It works! The features it does has work well and allow for manual evaluation of the input data. Which leads me to my main complaint. There is minimal summary data and no charting.
Lastly, there is one annoyance with the watch app that I hope they reconsider. They have decided that it is beneficial to reorder the tracker list based on last used. This makes muscle memory impossible and midnight tracking difficult.
Without these features added/fixed the app will remain in the sub 3-5 star rating.
I allowed my son's nurse to log into my account to keep log of his stuff during her shift. She has to manually log his meds & if she takes a video or picture I can't see it even though it's on my account & you can not collaborate with others that are linked to your account. That definitely needs to be changed & also a way to add meds like you're able to add the other things.
