WHY THIS APP?
A new baby's needs are always changing and it's not easy for new fathers to keep up to speed with what is required. This App helps by providing you with the essential baby care information and either parent can customize it to suit your new baby's changing needs.
Baby care and parenting books and other sources of information lack one key feature - they don't allow for what happens in your home, nor do they allow for the unique qualities of your new baby. Problem solved! This parenting App is doubly useful as the notes function allows you to enter specific information about your new baby e.g. feeding, bathing times, special needs - in fact anything you want! And it can be entered either upfront as a general note, or directly in the relevant baby care section.
BONUS Survival Notes for Dad - some dads are going to find having a new baby stressful. Life has changed completely. Becoming a new parent is a huge learning curve and it is not always easy for a new father to get to grips with what has just happened. This section has useful and important information on how to cope. It also has tips to help avoid mother meltdown.
ALSO: although written for fathers, the other caregivers are finding it useful as well. New moms, nannies, babysitters and grandparents are all using this app.
Why? It's the combination of the clear concise information and the notes function. New moms find it useful by using the notes function to brief nannies and babysitters (and even the grandparents). Nannies and babysitters need to know how mom wants her baby to be cared for while in their care. Nannies and babysitters need to get it right and using the notes function helps. Grandparents often fall back on their past experience, but (if they have a Smartphone!)this app helps.
In US or UK English. Two complete versions of the app are included so you can use Moms or mums or mothers; diapers or nappies; gas or wind, etc.
