I'm type A so I see myself wanting to track things when the babies arrive.....but I also get the reality of being doubly busy with twins. Part of me worries that if I don't track I won't remember who ate/pooped/etc when....
Any votes for the Baby Connect app? A different app for twins?
I NEVER pay for apps - I deal with ads on any games I've decided to play etc.....so before I download I wanted to see if it was worth it hehe.

I used Baby Connect with my twins. It was a lifesaver in the early sleep-deprived days! I still use it to track sleep and medicine now, at almost 2.

I used Total Baby. It was fine. Ultimately I used it for a long time to manage my milk inventory.

@twodoghouse: Thanks! That is exactly what I was thinking - sleep deprived and no idea what's going on! haha.

I use total baby.
Not sure what baby connect can do but I love total baby because you simply swipe between babies. Tracks dr appts, growth, has timers and milestones or diary. I'm sure tracking diapers, feedings, baths and pumping sessions are standard for all apps.
Oh, I know total baby works and syncs between iPhone. You do have to pay $4.99 for the realtime sync feature, but I think you have to pay for baby connect, too.

Baby Connect. I don't like paying for apps either, but it was so valuable for the first year. I mainly used it to keep track of LO2 but would occasionally put in info for LO1 as well. I still use it today to record medicine and temperatures when the kids are sick.

I used baby connect with my three. No problems switching between kids, there is a tab at the top with their profiles.

I'm using glow baby and I really like it. A lot more features for free than I have seen others have.

My husband and I actually found it easiest to use a piece of paper. Free!

Thanks all!! It's great to hear from people who have used the apps....especially frugal app people like me saying it was worth paying for
