Baby Tracker iPad App

This iPad app is fairly unique and it’s called Baby Connect. The iPad app developers describe it as a baby tracking app for the ipad. This baby tracking iPad 2 apps has graphical reports and trending charts, weekly averages, medicine, vaccine and growth tracking, timers, notifications, as well as emails. You can even export your baby tracking data in a spreadsheet. It has an easy to use interface that is nice. This iPad2 application allows you to exchange information in real time with your spouse, babysitter, nanny or daycare. It also allows you keep track of feedings, nursing, naps, diapers, milestones for your baby. Most parents need this kind of info especially if you have a special needs child. We thought it was a good idea to add the ability to record even the baby’s mood, temperature, what kind of game he’s playing, his gps location, and attach pictures. The iPad app developers have pretty much covered the whole gambit of data you need to record regarding your newborn.
