Wonderful to be able to see pictures of my child throughout the day and know whether or not he’s napped.
The name is exclusionary to fathers
I like the app but the problem is that the name is exclusionary to fathers who are important to children’s growth, development and well being.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for the feedback and I understand where you are coming from! We chose to call ourselves HiMama because we originally wanted to pay homage to and were inspired by working mothers. However, we were naive not to consider how this could lead to other equally important and vital groups feeling excluded (fathers, grandparents, etc.). Our name triggering any feelings of exclusion was never our intention as we recognize everyone’s important role in our young children’s lives, regardless of racial, ethnic, religious, gender or sexual orientation.
I use this app daily. It mostly works fine even if it’s often laggy or logs me out.
Its name is terrible — how have they not rebranded? Do they know fathers use the app? Do they know not all children have a mother? Do they not understand the social impact of the expectation that mothers should do the bulk of the parenting and communication?
