Description

Baby Steps is the most efficient app to log your baby’s daily activity. Don’t rely on your memory or scribbling on pieces of paper; organize everything automatically in a timeline that can be shared between parents, caregivers, daycare, nannies, and anyone else who needs it.

Baby Steps makes it fast and easy to log what’s important to you. Our charts and data visualizations give deeper insights into your child’s sleep, feeding, growth, and other patterns of activity, so you can be more confident and informed in the choices you make.

The app is designed by a working parent with twins, who was frustrated by the difficulty of keeping track of the activity of his newborn children. When coming home after work, or picking up his children from daycare, he wanted to know when his children had last slept and eaten. This meant the app needed to give that information at a glance, and that logging entries had to be fast enough to do on the go. Baby Steps is designed with this viewpoint in mind: to make everything as easy as possible for parents, without sacrificing powerful visualizations and insights.

Use Baby Steps to log:

• Sleep
• Nursing, bottles (breast milk, formula), solid food
• Pumping
• Diapers, potty use
• Baths
• Growth (weight, height, head size)
• Development milestones
• Health symptoms, temperature
• Medicines, vaccines
• Notes (keep track of anything else you want)

Visualizations:

• Daily recap for common entry types
• Charts for sleep, nursing, bottles, pumping, diapers, and potty use
• Activity patterns: visualize the times of day when your child sleeps, feeds, and more
• Growth charts for weight, height, and head size, with percentile curves
• Timeline of important milestones

Key features:

• Log entries for multiple babies
• Collaborate between caregivers: all activity is synced across devices, so you’re always up to date
• Add comments to any entry
• Customize entry button placement for faster access
• Filter entries by type
• Share charts
• Use your choice of measurement units (imperial, metric)
• Add your own milestones, health symptoms, medicines, and vaccines, alongside our presets
• Export data (JSON or CSV file)

Very helpful app

I love this app. It is not only super easy to use, it is helpful to keep track of times of feeds, diaper changes, administration of medication and so much more. My only complaint is that it’s only available for iPhones so my husband can’t download the app to add logs.

Great potential but not there yet.

I have a 3 month old and have been using glow to track and log diapers etc. but glows UI is very clunky... and this app looks and feels much better.
However many key features are missing right now such as timers for each breast to help with alternating and the dial to log feedings is not detailed enough (couldn’t select 4.25ml)
Also I think it makes more sense to have the overview as the first page so the first thing I see is the time last changed or fed!!! And I wish the pattern screen wasn’t so buried as it’s a great quick glance visual.
Overall I think this app could be a great new solution with a few updates, but right now we will stick with glow.

Thanks for the feedback, we appreciate you gave Baby Steps a try. Following your feedback, we've added side tracking for nursing and pumping entries, as well as an option for greater precision for quantities and measurements. We are currently working on bringing overview details to a home screen widget for maximum ease of use. We hope that you give Baby Steps another chance in the future.

Decent but suggestion:

Nice easy efficient user interface but it would be nice if we got the option to have an alert on the phone when a new update (feed, diaper, pump) was logged.

Thanks for using the Baby Steps app and for your suggestion. This feature is on our roadmap already. Let us know if you have any other suggestions that would make the app even more useful to you.
