A Must-Have App for New Parents
This app makes tracking our daughter's feeding, diaper habits, and sleeping patterns so easy. Plus it has numerous other great features. The syncing feature is seamless and immediate. This is one of the best designed and robust app I own.

Love the app, does everything I need for my 2 yr old who is toilet training and my 6 mth old. Speedy support!

We just started using this app and couldn't be happier! The syncing between our 3 Apple devices + website and multiple caregiver input is awesome, and the summary and time since last feeding/diaper/etc. is great when you only have time for a glance! Dumping that other app we were using!

My wife always felt like she was missing out when she was at work and the kids were home, now she logs on at work and gets to feel more involved ( as long as I remember to update it ) Awesome app, very easy to use.

This app is truly great. As a breast feeding mom that only gets small doses of sleep at a time, this app has made it possible for me to accurately and easily keep track of when my son is eating, for how long and from which breast. And now that I am back at work, it reminds me when I need to pump and lets me track how much I am getting from each breast. It is a great - I am so happy I went with this app.

Cannot live without this app!
My daughter is 9 months old and this app has been a lifesaver. Great tracking, trending and everything else.

Makes keeping track easy
This app has been a lifesaver with keeping track of our newborn's feeds and diapers. I love that it syncs automatically with the app on my husband's phone.

This app is awesome! I could never remember which side my baby was nursing the last time. But with this app I always know. Everything is so awesome and I love all the statistic and the graphics! I use this app since over 4 month now and will continue to do so, because it's so great to track everything! Every mom should have this app!

Bravo!! Must have for busy parents...
Best $ can buy. Easily sinks between iPad/iPhone and multiple users privately! Even our doctor loved it - including ability to chart and email summary/history- useful for new parents or if sick ! Great user interface and options. Other developers should be so diligent and study this app. It has it all, and updates are not fluff, but well thought out and tested features. Even support rocks, but have only used for suggestions... I don't review many apps, but this is one we couldn't live without!!! Well done!!!

$5 Definitely Worthy
I tried several app (free) before getting this one. Is the first time I purchase an app and my husband and I rely so much on it. I like the updates. If you are reading this because you are considering about getting it, Go for it, you will not regret it.I got it because all the good reviews.I like the updates. It keeps getting better.

Becomes part of your life in a matter of minutes
We started using this to keep track of our jaundiced newborn's feedings and diapers and haven't looked back. It's easy, seamless really. We can know when the baby last ate or slept whether we're in the room or 2500 miles away (great instant sync too). The developer responds to emails and feature requests right away. Just get it! No paper charts ... Just an app that also allows you to joke with your parents about how you're amazed you survived their app-less parenting. And then they can roll their eyes at you.

Happy mom and dad
This by far is the most thorough baby tracking app I found. It allows my husband and I to keep track of our newborn's feeding, sleeping and diaper changes easily. Even better are the stats which allowed us to recognize the baby's sleep and feeding patterns. This was especially helpful since we were both sleep deprived and couldn't remember much during doctor visits. Love this app.
Nov 10, 2011 by $5 bucks well spent
Everyone Is saying how much they like the app for teaming feeding and diaper changes but I love it for all the milestone markers, health tracking and measurements. It gives you a chart with the average percentiles and how your child is progressing just like at the doctors office. I am horrible about remembering to bring my baby book or records to the doctor to keep track of shots, etc.. and this app allows me to record everything quickly and easily. The design is a lot better than I would ever consider a $4.99 app to be. Love it!!!

There ate better reviews than I could do but I'd like to add my support - this is truly a well designed intuitive app.It'd not often you come across an app and that is so spot on. I actually struggle to think of how they'd improve it!Wellworth the investmentfor any parent
Nov 4, 2011 by Stebradandish
Reliable, intuitive, powerful - love it!
My wife and I originally got this app to track feeding times/amounts - but found ourselves using it for quite a bit more. The best part is that this application synchronizes across devices (multiple iPhones, an iPad, and the website, in this case) automatically and reliably. I setup alerts on my phone so I can track what's going on at home with the babyâ¦ they are automatically sent to my phone when my wife enters an event! Awesome! Excellent graphs and rollups of data that are very handy when at the doctor. CSV output for those that like data. I can't say enough good stuff about this app.
Nov 3, 2011 by Toobiz
I can't recommend this app enough. I purchased about 5 apps to evaluate and this one is lightyears ahead of the others.
When I first had a play, I found it a little daunting - there's a lot of stuff you can track with lots of different ways of tracking, so I started with the breastfeeding tracker and progressed to all the other functions. Have been using it for 8 weeks and have the app installed on both my and my husbands iPhones, 2 iPads and we just bought an iPad Touch which we keep with our new son where ever he goes (the iPads are too hard to use with one hand) so we always have the app close by for accurate updates.
My favorite features:
- Tracks everything!
- Easy edit and adding of entries that you missed.
- Sync function rocks!! I always know when he last fed/slept/changed/etc even if I'm not with him. Also, my husband checks to see if our son is sleeping before calling me, just in case I'm sleeping too.
- Reports and .csv reports. The reports provided are already excellent but I really enjoy being able to run my own analysis (e.g. Does Daddy really change as many diapers as he thinks he does ;)
Just get this app. It is brilliant!!!

Not sure what I did without it
This is a must have. Before having this app I tried to keep a schedule on paper, but it was hard to keep up. Now if I fall asleep while baby is nursing in the middle of the night the timer keeps track for me. It has really help us better understand her cries. When she is crying we look at the app to see when her last feeding was or how long she's been awake. Now we understand her patterns and have a happier baby. I highly recommend this app for all moms and dads. iPad and iPhone user. Graphs are great on iPad.

Best baby log tracking app
I used to keep track of my first daughter's daily schedule with pen & notebook for her 1st year. Sometimes i forgot or had no time to put the entry and had to guess the time and duration afterward. Since I am having twins for my second pregnancy, I start checking both the free and paid iphone apps to help me. At the end, I narrowed down to Total Baby or Baby Connect. After reading all the reviews from both, I decided on Baby Connect and this is indeed the greatest app. Highly recommend for mom with twins.
- easy to enter data even with twins
- easy to change from one child to another and start nursing timer for both twins.
- easy to input data manually or adjust old entry. I can start the timer for sleep but i have an option to stop the timer or manually input the end time. This is a big feature I need as I will forget to stop the timer sometimes.
- I tested sleep timer for overnight and it kept working at the background. Some apps will stop the timer after a period of idle time but I actually like it to run in the background continuously and just stop manually. It also gave you an indicator that a timer is running.
- easy to view the time and time elapsed since last nursing, diaper change and sleep. This will be one of the most crucial when I have two infants to keep track of.
- ability to input pumping time and amount of expressed milk manually. I don't need to time my pumping time.
- ability to export and email for backup
- ability to add custom categories for health, food info. I add my custom category "doctor's appt" under health section so that I can keep track of all the doctor's appts.

This is a must-have!
This app gives you so much information and is so incredibly useful. I've used it 24/7 for 6 months and love it. Updates are frequent and any bugs that come up are fixed right away. This is truly useful technology. It's the app all the moms in my area are talking about and it really lives up to the hype. Get it, you will be so glad you did!

Great product - worth every penny!
Fantastic product - bar none! We used it religiously for the first 8 months and it was invaluable. Keep up the great work.
Mar 7, 2011 by BoilerUp95
Awesome awesome app!!! I can customize the categories to be more detailed. I love it! A must have for parents!! Love that my nanny can update what is going on with my child while I'm gone! A must have!
Mar 7, 2011 by vbflightmedic11
Amazing must have!
Have used this daily since my now 8 month old was 3 months. My husband and I both have it and it is indispensable. The creators are also incredibly responsive to suggestions/bugs, which has been fantastic. Buy this app if you have a child!!
Mar 6, 2011 by Bopis
This app is simply the best. After reading several other reviews I downloaded this one because others had suggested it above others. I am a fairly new iPhone user and a mom of 2, my baby is a week old. My baby had early blood sugar and hydration issues, making it critical for me to know patterns and times of feedings, diapers, etc., to share with our Drs and lactation consultants. The graph and timeline features have allowed me to spot patterns and give concise info to Drs. The app is very easy to use and colorful to look at. Will be using it for months to come!

New Parent's Best Friend
My son is 6 days old and keeping track of his feedings and diapers is an essential part of making sure he stays healthy. Logging each activity with this application is super easy and user friendly. The application keeps track of everything I need to monitor and enables me to have the details I need at my fingertips. I can't wait to share the details with our pediatrician; I have no doubt he will be impressed. At 2 am I have all I can do to open my eyes wide enough to breastfeed and having an easy way to track it makes all the difference in my stress level. The start/stop timers and graphs enable me to see patterns of behavior that help to manage care. Each time something has happened, I say, "I wish the app would let me log..." and with a little searching, I discover it does have somewhere to do what I wanted. I look forward to future enhancements although, as a new mother, I wouldn't even know what those should be. Given the intuitive design of this tool, I'm sure the app designer is already planning ahead for me. Thank you for designing a tool to help a new parent keep everything in order!

Great app that's thorough and easy to use
Started using it in the hospital and it's so much easier than fumbling for pen/paper in the dark; easy to spot trends, simple to use even if you're just tracking feeding/diaper changes, and great for sharing info with your spouse or caregiver. I tried a different free app before and found this one much better and well worth the few bucks.
Oct 30, 2010 by Dancinkarma
Excellent! Well worth the $
My wife and I have been using this app for almost a week with our newborn. After reading summaries on the various apps, we concluded this would suit our needs best. We haven't been disappointed! The key selling feature on this particular app, is the ability to manage everything from two iPhones. My wife can input on her phone that baby is sleeping, and it the timer automatically starts on my phone as well. This allows us to insure everything is accurate when we hand off baby to one another. I also enjoy the fact that one can edit the timer (if you forget to stop a feeding or nap) you can manually input a start/stop time. Everything on this app is well thought out and is accompanied by a slick interface. It's also a great peace of mind to know all your data is auto synced with a server for back-up. Privacy is not a concern, because there really isn't any sensitive info. I highly recommend this app for new parents!!
Oct 27, 2010 by NewJerse
We've been using this app since day 3 of out 2 month old's life. We quickly realized that the paper method of tracking feedings was inadequate and that an iPhone app was a perfect replacement. I bought and we tried several offerings and this one was quickly selected as the best for out needs. Being able to view and enter data on their web site or any authorized iPhone is fabulous and incredibly useful when one of us is flying solo or we hand the child off to a relative for a few hours.

A must have for new moms!
I don't know what I would do without this app. I barely know the day and time these days. Thankfully this app helps me keep track of my nursing, my baby girl's sleeping schedule etc...hooray!
Oct 12, 2010 by Janester 1
Great app for moms who want to remember everything
This app is great. I wish I would have found it first. I downloaded 2 others before this one and was using both because one didn't have a pumping function and the other a medical function. This app is complete and so easy to use. It tracks everything I have been writing down in a notepad the past week. I always have my phone so again I can't say enough how great this app is!!!!!
Oct 11, 2010 by Lilliansmama
Love it. Worth the $
Wow'd every nurse here. Being able to share with my wife's iphone was HUGE plus! Very intuitive interface. Lot of thought went into how to practically design the interfaces. Well done! New version has great features like timeline. Developer is very responsive to requests, bug fixes, and enhancements. Thanks so much, I really don't know what we'd do without this app!
Oct 9, 2010 by Saraandadamz
Best app ever
I have used this app nonstop since my baby was two weeks old. It's amazing. The creators update it a lot- you can tell they really want to make the app the best it can be. Highly recommended!!
Oct 8, 2010 by Stinkerpants
Simply the current best!!!
I purchased five different nursery log apps til I finally ended up with this one. This is simply the best one there is. Easy to use, various visual graphs to help me keep on track. The best part is when I contacted the developer with a question, he replied within a day with an answer. I strongly recommend this app to anyone who just had a baby.

Less guessing means less tears..
I'm a twin mum... and all I have time to say is that managing my two breastfeeding babies was a whole lot more difficult, more baffling, and more tiresome without this app. This app removes a lot of the guessing... is he hungry again? do you think she's tired? when was the last time you had a nappy change??? Less guessing means less tears!!! Now, any time I hear a baby grumble, I grab the iPod...
3-Sept-2010 by Twin Mum
I love baby connect! It is so nice to have accurate information at my daughter's doctor visits and to be able to look at her sleeping and eating patterns at a glance. I didn't start using it until she was 2 months old and now I can't wait to have another baby and use it from day one! I would highly recommend it!

A must have app for new parents
If you are a new parent or just had a baby you should own this application. My wife and I use it religiously and could not do without it. Keeps track of everything about our baby and tracks progress for key metrics. I showed it to our pediatrician and he was amazed by it! He was using a spreadsheet which he shared with parents. He said he will encourage all parents to use baby-connect instead; for the price, this is a steal! The ability to enter data from any computer or iPhone and keep everything synchronized is very valuable. When I travel, I can pull all data while on the road and know that my baby just went to sleep or is playing in her activity mat. That is priceless!
31-Aug-2010 by GreekSamurai
my wife and I both use this for our newborn. love that we both get to access the same database & update so we both know when last feed was etc. we could do it on paper of course but having the app makes it so easy to keep track of, and one of us always has their iPhone handy. well worth the $5 we each paid! ;-)
30-Aug-2010 by gujhcxm
Most usable app I've purchased!
This app has been so beneficial...especially for nursing. No more watching the clock or trying to remember what time I started nursing or on what side.
Also no more trying to remember when baby had their last dirty diaper or how many he had in a day. This app has made having an infant almost brain free!:)
4-Apr-2010 by dol17pin
Best baby app ever
This app was definitely developed by parents who know! Everytime I think they can add something that's not in the current app, they come out with a new update with them! Thanks, we'd be lost without it!!
3-Apr-2010 by Crowiecat
This has got to be the most useful app ever. I would be so lost without it!!!!

Fantastic app... awesome new features!

Brilliant app, Esp. Push notification
Wonderfully designed, very user-friendly, and we love the push notification system when one of us is out and about. Very handy also for keeping track of all info for when Health Visitor arrives, particularly when we're half asleep!
If you wanted to remember your own routine, you can also set yourself up (as another child!) so you can ensure that you get enough sleep and food too!

New dad approved
I was blessed with my first child on Jan 27 2010. I've been searching for an app that a nerd like me can use and something simple for my girlfriend. This is it. And it syncs which is priceless.
01-31-2010 by BiggShaad
My wife and I use it to update our baby's daily routine. Easy to use and has all the activities.
01-26-2010 by CoredumpCT
Perfect tool to keep in touch with your kid. Easy to use, and it's great that it can sync between different supports: iPhone, Internet, etc.
01-20-2010 by Juvr
I like it a lot
Best baby app on the AppStore... The best thing is the ability to use the webpage, that way both me and my girlfriend can update the info of the baby!
02-Nov-2009 by HiM_Release
Great little application, Im a registered Childminder and find it of great use! Would recommend to other
23-Oct-2009 by Lisa
I really like this Apps
This app is perfect. I can now track what my kids are doing with his nanny while I'm at work. My wife doesn't have an iPhone but she still get the updates by logging on their website. When going back at home, we know exactly what they have done during the day, when they were their last bib or last nap. Great user interface and very easy to use, Baby Connect is well worth its price.
