Ratings and Reviews
I love all of the data and syncing with another user!
I love this app! It is a data junkie’s dream. I can see charts, stats, graphs, and details about my baby’s feedings, diapers, sleep, and more. I jot down questions for the pediatrician so I don’t forget. The best part is that my husband also uses the app. Only 1 person has to purchase it. When we swap baby duty we can see what the other person did and when. If I need a nap he can see it’s because baby woke up 4 times overnight, etc.
My only mild annoyance is the feeding time tracker. I don’t particularly care how long it takes my baby to eat so I simply “end” the feeding right after I hit start. At the end of a feed I’m usually trying to put baby to sleep so clicking end on my phone is the last thing I’m thinking about. If I leave the feeding time as 1 sec it barely shows up on the chart. Therefore, I have to go in and adjust it to 10 or 15 minutes. I wish there was a default feeding time that could be adjusted for those of us who don’t really want to track it.
A weird bug I’ve noticed is that the feeding tracker monthly amount trend graph is showing breastmilk amounts. We only use formula so I’m not sure why that is happening. The other types of charts and stats don’t have that bug.
Great App, A Few Improvements Needed
I love this app and use it to the fullest (tracking sleep, feeding, diapers, weight, etc). I really like the daily summaries for each task so I can quickly see how much my kid has eaten or slept and how much I’ve pumped. The interface is very easy and rather pleasing to use.
There are just three small improvements that would greatly improve the user experience. First, as noted by another reviewer, it would be nice to be able to track how much milk is pumped from each breast. Right now, I have to manually add a note to each session stating how much per side. Second, it would be great to be able to specify how much milk is pumped and eaten down to the tenth or twentieth of an ounce. I don’t express milk in quarter-ounce increments and it’s irritating to have to round up or down each time and, considering I pump 6-9 times per day, a little rounding error each time really adds up. Similarly, my kid doesn’t eat in .25 increments so I’m not able to accurately track how much she is eating. Third, it would be nice if the app had a function that would take into account how much you’ve pumped and how much your kid has eaten and give you a running total of how much breast milk you have in storage. I briefly used another app that had that feature and really liked it. All in all, these are small-ish nits about an otherwise great app.
Great! Just one suggestion...
I spent some time looking at various apps before and after my baby came. For some reason, some of the reviews initially made me skip this app. I think probably because I was looking for the best app that I could use completely free. I ended up trying out Baby +, but after the first couple days I really didn't like it for various reasons. At the same time my friend who just had a baby too recommended Sprout, so I went ahead and tried it. I love it! Easy to use. Works on both my phone and my husbands. Has everything I've needed so far.
My only suggestion is that it seems to drain my battery a lot when I record a sleep. It's convenient to have a count up timer for feeding and pumping but for sleeping that ideally happens for hours at a time, it really doesn't need a timer that keeps running in the background. It would be great if I could open the tracking, log what time he started sleeping, then come back in to the app when he wakes up again. Then the app would calculate for me how long his nap was.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. A new update is available on the App Store that should fix the battery drain issue some people were experiencing.
