Using the wonder weeks app now, which is brilliant although a little bit wordy. Really helps me to understand why my lg is behaving the way she is and what things I might come to expect from her during a particular leap
Highly recommended by many of our Mums is The Wonder Weeks app – Costing £1.49 on the app store
Our Mum Jo says,
“I used ‘The Wonder Weeks’ app and found it really interesting and very helpful in understanding why my daughter was being a bit fussy at certain times! The app details the 10 ‘leaps’ in development over the first 20 months of a baby’s life and helps you to understand the ‘signs’ that your baby is going through a leap, ‘abilities’ of what your baby might be able to do after a leap and ‘help’ on what you can do to support them! My daughter is now 21 months and I used this from when she was 5 weeks old and it has been invaluable! I used it most weeks and kept an eye on the chart to see when a ‘stormy’ period was coming up! Would definitely recommend x”
Our reviewer Ally says “BabyBump was the app I used throughout both pregnancies. Found it really easy to use and every week we uploaded a new bump pic, it’s great looking back at them! It also showed baby’s size in comparison to fruit /veg which was quite a fun way of gauging the size of our little one! It has a contraction timer too which was great when the time came!! There’s a name finder and you can choose and keep a list if favourites. I loved the app. Only thing is it’s American, so some things aren’t 100% relevant to uk. Overall a fab app. X”
BabyBump Pregnancy is a free app which is downloadable via the app store or by clicking on the image x
BabyBump describe their app as:
A free comprehensive pregnancy app and social network for expecting parents.
Our Mum Suzie says “I had a breastfeeding app which was good called Breast-feeding by whisper arts. You could log each feed (left side, right side, bottle), how much was taken/how long for etc I found this useful when I couldn’t remember when the last feed was!”
What the developers say:
Breastfeeding – an application for the young and modern Mums, which allows you to:
– Remember what breast-fed baby the last time;
– Record the time and duration of feedings;
– Keep a record of the child supplementary feeding with a mixture of mixed feeding;
– View summary reports of feeding a child for a day, week, month.
