Keeping notes through your pregnancy and baby’s first year – from doctor’s appointments to labor pains to baby’s many “firsts” – can be maddening when you don’t even have time to shower most days.
But new features added to the mobile app from West Boca Medical Center make it easy to keep track of all that, as it happens.
The new maternity section of the app has a built-in journal, plus sections for noting the baby’s movement, mom’s contractions and at-your-fingertips info on the signs of labor.
There’s also a long list of baby names to mull over while you’re waiting for those doctor’s appointments, or you’re just too uncomfortable to leave the sofa.
The Baby’s First Year part of the app is also a convenient place to store all kinds of information, like immunization charts, eating charts and a growth tracker. It also has a place for recording “Baby’s Firsts” – likely to save anguish (weeks or months) later, as you sit down with that blank baby book trying to recall dates.
Also very helpful: a Diaper Bag Checklist, as well as a way to organize photos.
The app even plays lullabies.
Beyond the maternity section, you can also use the app to check ER wait times – and the let the hospital know you’re on the way, should the need arise.
The app is available for Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iTouch, as well as Android and Blackberry devices. It’s free.
