Must have app for everyone!
This app is great for anyone and everyone. Whether you have babies, toddlers, young adults or teenagers, I think you'll find a lot of useful information on Kidaches. It's not much different than all the websites already available, however with the app all the info is in one place. Plus there's categories which allows you to look up information say on "sleeping". You can then narrow it down and look up info on nightmares, night terrors, how to get your child to go to sleep, etc. I think you will be pleasantly surprised by just how much info is really packed into the app. If you have a situation where you're not sure what to do, you find out what the best course of treatment is or if you need to seek medical attention for your child. The app is super easy to operate. I'm impressed and would definitely recommend the App.
A handy tool for parents and caregivers
This app has lots of great information of illness and injury - everything from ingrown toenails to major trauma. You can search by illness/emergency or by symptom and receive a comprehensive explanation of causes, treatments and when to call a doctor.
I really like the body symptom checker because you can simply ask your child to point to the area that hurts and then narrow it down by common maladies in that region. Great for taking care of injuries with lots of first aid information and with clear warning signs of dangerous conditions the app lets you know when contacting a medical professional is necessary.
With three boys I know I'll be needing this a lot. As the kind of person who never knows if I should apply ice, heat or pressure, this will definitely be handy for every day injuries and is great for brushing up on common first aid techniques!
Very informative, no guess work
As a mom of two kids, 4 yrs & 1 month, I found this app to be quite useful because it helps take some of the guess work out of diagnosing the kids OR whether or not a symptom (or range of symptoms) warrants a doctor appointment or ER trip. The app offers several ways to look up your child's problem, helps you decide on where to seek attention, and things you can do at home to care for their ailment(s). This is easy to use and seems comprehensive. I love the symptom checker by tapping on a part of the body that is affected.
Currently, the app doesn't help me locate doctors or emergency care centers in my area.
I was provided compensation for downloading and trying this app, but all opinions expressed above are MY OWN, and not swayed by compensation.
