    One more thought…

    I use the Meal Board app to help turn my recipes into a grocery lists/meal plans quickly. Since having babies this app has become one of the biggest timesavers. Hopefully it can help others too.

    I use Total Baby as well, and have for 2 babies (almost 3 years). I couldn’t live without it. It’s been great to track milestones, too, since I’ve been too tired to write them in a baby book. Lol.

    Thanks for the list! I’m always looking for new, helpful apps 🙂

    @ Kendra — you’re probably right (in terms of the bugs being the cause for the lower ratings.) The toddler app has better reviews, though, and seems popular…

    @ Christine — Thanks for sharing this! Nice that it’s free, and nice that it’s a web app, so you can access the info on different devices. Here’s the link, for anyone who might be interested…

    I love babybix!!! I used this app and accompanying website extensively for the first 2 years. I even sent Nicole the graphs for my sleep study. It’s a great app. Sometimes buggy but they’re usually very good at updating quickly to fix said bugs. This app does everything!! It can track feedin (bottle or breast), diapers, sleeping, vaccinations, growth, and more. Plus it has a website that everything is stored on as well. It’s also free which makes it even sweeter!!! I often recommend this app to everyone I know that’s expecting or has young children.

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure the Weissbluth apps are not very highly rated because they do tend to be a little buggy. That’s why I’m looking forward to future versions, hoping for improvement!! I looked at the reviews and there were a lot of complaints about it crashing or trouble using it. I’ve never had those problems myself, though it is not super intuitive sometimes! (c: Yes you’ve got the right links!

    @ Britt — Oh, wow; that one looks awesome! A little pricy (for an app, that is), but the reviews are just stellar, aren’t they? Thanks for recommending this one!

    I’m including the link here, for other parents who might be interested: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/total-baby/id312198543?mt=8

    @ Angela — Glad to hear the monitor app has been useful for you! I’ve never tried it, but it looks so cool. I love the idea of having a portable monitor option like that.

    @ Kendra — it looks like you’re talking about this infant nap app (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/weissbluth-method-infant-nap/id362542876?mt=8) and this toddler bedtime app (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/weissbluth-method-toddler/id425019406?mt=8) I included the links so other parents can check them out.

    I hadn’t realized there was a toddler one — it looks really good! I didn’t include the infant one because it wasn’t as highly rated as some of the others, and I hesitate to recommend something to our whole community unless I feel confident that the majority of people will really like it.

    That said, however, a personal recommendation like yours is a good endorsement! Thanks for sharing these 🙂

    I love the app Total Baby. It’s saved me so much time worrying and wondering about newborn diapers and feedings. I continue to use the feeding timers throughout the entire nursing stage. I’m now on Baby #2 and use it daily. I also log the doctor office visits, milestones and memorable moments. It’s my favorite app created!

    I have both of Dr. Weissbluth’s apps, one for baby sleep and one for toddler. They are both helpful, although sometimes buggy. I look forward to future versions of them. I think they are worth the money despite that.

    The infant nap allows you to graph sleep, it has reminders for nap and bedtime, and it has some of his best tips.

    The toddler sleep app lets you graph, has a few tips, and prompts you at 4pm and 5pm to describe your baby’s behavior/mood in order to calculate bedtime. I find this helpful some days, but after using it a few times I started to already know what it was going to say.

    I’m surprised those weren’t on here! (c: But I’m glad to learn about these others. I didn’t know any other baby sleep apps existed.

    I absolutely love the baby monitor by mva on the android. Totally free as well! I use it pretty much every time we go out rather than unplug the monitor. So helpful!
