Ratings and Reviews
Great knowledge for any parent
I am a second time mother so I should know it all right? Wrong. My first is 10 and when he was a baby we didn’t have apps like this. It’s fascinating to read about the reasons behind your baby’s behaviors and also by knowing why your baby is behaving a certain way you can help them through all of their little growth spirts, while also helping yourself. Because let’s face it all parents wonder if their doing a good enough job so when baby is having an especially rough day we all say what am I doing wrong? Well with the Wonder Weeks it sometimes tells you, no you aren’t doing wrong your baby is making a “leap” that affects their mood, sleep, behavior, etc... and how to help them and yourself have an easier go of it. What I love also is it tells you when the “leap” should be over which really gets me through the tough times. I recommend this app to every mother or father who wants to know more about what’s going on in that sweet little head and also wants great expert advice on how to help your little ones along.

Thank you very much for providing a detailed review. It is delightful to hear such positive words and it’s always a pleasure to serve our users.
Many thanks from our entire team! Best wishes, Maria
Good app, update threw me off
The leap schedule alone is def worth the $4, the sanity it gives is priceless. Knowing that the stormy period will come to an end and your baby will go back to the sweet angel they once were is such a relief! I found that to be the most helpful and useful part of the ap. Leap 4 was awful but it ended exactly on the day it said it would. We were both about to loose our minds.
Im a first time parent and the ap updated just before leap 5, i like the new look and format but not the the interactive parts. Like other reviewers the diary part is not useful, I really don't have time for that. Much preferred the previous way clicking off each task when accomplished. Im often interrupted and like being able to pick up where left off.
Developer, please can you double check the skills? Leap 6 says baby will ASK someone to sing a song & understand the names of animals.. baby is not close to being that verbal.. im wondering if something glitched. Also I tried to use the nap tracker and its more trouble than its worth. Have to be able to pick up where i left off, not enter start and end at once.. or all naps. I tried to do it as the day went and it didnt add the total time together. i can barely remember how many time i fed baby last night. Please make things as simple as possible, my brain capacity is limited to most crucial items or not at all.

Hi, thank you for your extensive and valuable review. We are so happy to know our app gives you peace of mind knowing when your baby is having a more difficult time than usual. However, we would like to inform you that there's been a new update with changes regarding the mentioned checklist. Now it looks closely as it was before, meaning that the list is visible within the text of the relevant leap. Also, the listed skills are only examples of things that kids are mentally capable of doing at this age. Of course, they do not master each of the skills every new ability allows right away. In fact, a baby's brain is now ready to learn a whole bunch of new skills and behaviors. As for the sleep entries, please contact us at email@example.com with details so we can give you further assistance in this matter. Thank you, Maria
App is too complicated and redundant
Not worth paying for this. There are so many options and every time I log into the app it seems like I am asked to do a homework assignment! Not concise and they give basically every option under the sun — your child may do this or this or the other thing, basically just equivocating, and in the end you just end up telling the app what your baby is doing and not the other way around (what your baby should be doing). I understand different babies develop differently, but honestly nothing insightful from this app. My advice is just enjoy your child and you don’t need this app.
**Updated to 1 star from 2 star for the poor response from developer which do not acknowledge the flaws in the app, rather trying to defend it. App may have allegedly helped thousands of parents. Just didn’t help me (and may not help you) hence my honest objective review based on my personal experience. That’s how reviews work, the stars average out based on everyone’s personal experience. See other low star independent reviews that express the same sentiment as I have. Honestly only after leaving my review did I see others like mine and was perhaps not surprised they describe the same frustrations with the app. The UX leaves much to be desired. My advice is just check in with your pediatrician about your child’s development as we did (and as you should) rather than waste time/money on this app.

Hi, I understand your displeasure likely caused by the non-fulfillment of your expectations. As we always emphasize, the app is just a summarized version of the book, designed as a practical guide through the Leap chapters. However, I assure you that our full intent is to improve your individual experience and to keep you as a customer. We value each user equally and are continuously looking into the customer base feedback to consider it moving forward. Please contact us so we could discuss this further and offer solutions. Hope to hear from you soon! Kindest Regards, Maria
