Ratings and Reviews
I love this app!
As a stay at home mom of a 5 month old and a 2 1/2 year old, this app helps add fun and learning into our days. It also makes me feel like I am able to bond with each of my girls individually where they are at developmentally. I love that you can mark your favorite activities or tell the app when an activity is either too easy or to difficult for your child. If you mark an activity as being too easy it will take it out of the rotation. If you mark an activity as too difficult it will add it back into the rotation in 3 weeks.
As a sleep deprived, busy mom who also wants to engage with her children, this app does all the thinking for me. When we have some free time all I have to do is go to today’s program and there is a list of fun, amazing ways to use that time while also fostering growth and development. I also love how it breaks down each activity into categories of Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Cognitive, Speech, Self Care and Social/Emotional activities.
Keep up the great work BabySparks!

Entertaining and helpful!
BabySparks is great! No new parent needs to pressure themselves too much because most of these activities simulate normal day-to-day interaction and play that most great parents do with their baby. However, I’m one of those people who will get stuck in a rut and end up doing the same 5 activities with baby over and over every day. This app provides a wide range of activities to vary your playtime. I love that the activity descriptions are clear, the link to the various developmental milestones is described right there in the activity and every activity has an accompanying video.
The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because of a very slight misstep in the UI. It is mildly annoying that when you look at an activity it stops you on your way back to the main list to ask how the activity was. I like to look at the daily activities first thing in the morning and get an idea of what we’re going to try that day and again would be nice not to have to click extra times to get back to the main list. It’s an unnecessary step. It’s a small thing but over time feels cumbersome. Slightly more thought on how much button pushing is required in this app would make it a 5-star treat for every new parent!
Ok but not for preemies
Updating my review: I’m not sure if they went in and fixed the issue but I went back into the app and saw it has my sons adjusted age. So I give it a 5 star because it is a great app to help with your child’s development!
Our son is 10 weeks old but he was born 34 weeks (5 weeks early). For preemies, you take how many weeks they have been born subtract that by how many weeks they were early and that’s their developmental/gestational age. So he is at 5 weeks right now. I used the app a few times and it only gave me videos for 2 months old and he wasn’t responding at all because he’s too young. He’s basically acting like he is only 1 month old. He isn’t cooing, following objects or responding to sounds. The app is great if the baby is born at full term. It does not change it up for preemies, even though it has the option to check the premature box and add his original delivery date.
