I like the fact that it tells me how many weeks my baby is.. shows development stages, can have questions and conversations with other mothers. And the fact that you can easily delete app if you decide you no longer need it which many apps make it so annoying where you must contact them in order to do so. Great app. Would definitely recommend. Especially 1st time mommas!
Unfortunately this app is not breastfeeding friendly. It does not follow AAP or WHO recommendations for breastfeeding or for introducing food at 6 months. It needs major improvement. To have such a recognized app give false and misleading information is highly inappropriate and should be rectified immediately. Some of the information provided can be classified as "parent shaming". I loved ovia pregnancy, but ovia parenting has a lot of work to do before it is even close to being credible.
I have to agree with many of the comments below I I used both the Ovia fertility and pregnancy app and I loved them. I would log into the daily and was able to track my doctors appointments, make notes on the calendar, etc. With this app, thought it has some good articles and tips I feel it lacks some of the features from the other apps. I also miss Gina's videos. Would like to see more parenting videos. Either way I will continue to use the app.
I love the Ovia Fertility and Pregnancy apps, but the Parenting one is not quite at the same level. For me, the biggest annoyance is that about half of the time, the article teased in the daily e-mail is nowhere to be found in the app. And clicking on the link it the e-mail brings up some sort of "can not be found" error.
This app is easy to use and extremely helpful. I do wish I could also track the babies doctors appointments, height and weight in the development and milestone sections so I did not have to use multiple apps. Definitely worth downloading for new parents or parents who it's been a while since they have had a newborn.
It's a great app, particularly the community section. You can get really helpful advice and it's anonymous so you don't feel self conscious.
