BabyPost Category - BabyBaby

We share our fave baby tracking apps so you can monitor and track breastfeeding, bathtime, diaper changes and more to make your new parenting journey a tiny bit easier

First time pregnant? You are going to love the pregnancy apps that can show how your baby is developing week by week plus there are such fun features like journaling and mood tracking. Once your baby is born when you’re running around sleep-deprived, it can be tough remembering when (and on what side!) to feed the bubs, let alone keep track of all those dirty nappies (and naptimes). Luckily, we’ve rounded up our favourite baby tracking apps to help you stay afloat with your tot’s day to day routine and chart their development – something that definitely comes in handy for your next paediatrician visit.

Here are all the nitty-gritty details about each app so you can choose one that’s right for you!

What to Expect apps guide you through every phase of your parenting journey, from preconception to pregnancy to the first years of your child’s life. This customisable baby tracking app not only allows you to record your baby’s sleeping, feeding and necessary diaper change patterns, but also has a handy list of recommended vaccinations.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, never fear – you’ll get access to the What to Expect forum where you can ask other parents for help, or just rant to them about the two hours of sleep you got last night.
