Your Baby Is Eating Your Brain So You Need This iPhone App To Help You Remember Stuff

The application provides tracking for feeding, diapers, sleep, and activity. Tracking all of those categories would make me crazy and probably give me OCD. I would buy this app for the “which boob did my baby eat off of last” reminder alone.

Am I the only one who has a problem remembering this? During the day, I don’t seem to have a problem with this, but at night all hell breaks loose.

I keep my iPhone by my bedside at night so I can see what time my baby wakes up and track the time I spend feeding her. Inevitably, almost every time I feed her at night I have some variation of this conversation with myself:

Okay, it’s now. 2:30am. Did I start feeding her at 2? Or was it 2:10? Damn it. What time did she wake up last? How many times have I fed her so far? What is my name? Where am I?

Night-time feedings are confusing; it’s the middle of the night, you are half asleep and it’s impossible to keep track of what is going on. This app allows you to easily track the length and time of feedings, as well as which boob you fed from last. It’s all done with a quick tap of the screen, too. This rocks. I am downloading it now.

I didn’t know about this app when I was in the hospital after the birth of my child – but I wish I did. How many times does a nurse come in and ask you how much your baby is eating, and how many times he’s peed? This is an easy way to keep track if you don’t want to do what I did and just make up all of those stats.

I know that since the beginning of time moms have been feeding their infants without the help of an iPhone app. I don’t care. I still want it.
