Hello Mums & Dads,
Does anybody ever use iPhone app to keep track of your babies daily log such as milk, bath, sleep, nappy, sick, growth, journal, etc?
I was looking for such free app for long and recently I found one which is quite useful. It's called 'Baby Tracker Lite'.
Check out this application on the App Store:
Free version already covered a lot of daily activity logs which are good enough to me.
Paid version contains some interesting things like Journals, Medicines, Chart and online/offline back and restore functions.
Try out the free version before you purchase the paid version.
They have a Facebook page to brief and show the demo of the app:

I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in the month of June. Since I stay in the nuclear family, I had problems with going shopping for her. But then bliss came in the form of an online website which is Husbabies. it was an array of products. From essential bathing care to fancy frocks to cute cradles, the site has it all. I would like to suggest this convenience to all mommies and daddies.
Hope you also enjoy the pleasures as ,much as I did. Let me know what did you buy to get a smile on your baby!
A happy mommy! :D u1w1c1b1

Hello all! I had a question about my 6 month old. We started feeding him solids around 4 months and he ate them like a champ but lately he refuses them either spitting it out and crying or not opening his mouth at all. Has anyone else gone through this? Oh, I am also currently expecting and was wondering if that had anything to do with him reverting back to bottle only. Any advice is greatly appreicated! barbiesydor

My cousin recently told me about the program at http://savingmorethanbefore.com At her recommendation I signed up for their sampler program and I have to share the amazing results with everyone. Using this program last night for the first time, my husband and I had an overflowing cart of groceries and non food general items. In all it rang up to $538.16 but thanks to this program we only paid $ 32.88! We weren't the only ones shocked, the cashier's mouth dropped. It is literally about paying pennies on the dollar for everything! thinkingpink

Babies are blessings and we love them but have you notice how expensive it is to raise a child today?it is getting more expensive to take care of children, as reported by the DOA. A child now costs $40,000 more to take care of until age 18 than it cost in 1960, modified for inflation. If you want to have kids anytime soon, just plan on taking out personal loans to do so. mpich12

akimber...theres nothing wrong if your not breastfeeding..unfortunately some older people like to put their two cents in...but dont let it bother you too much :) Bri

akimber04 - I breastfeed for several years so I'm not one to drink in the first few months but I do take my boys everywhere. If the boys can't eat there with me then I don't go. I see nothing wrong with it. I also don't see anything wrong with a drink. I have had a drink with my boys with me but it's only one and never when I'm driving. The old man probably assumed you were breastfeeding since it may have been culturely what you did when he was young. Who's to say. Anyways, now that we know the science behind it, only 2% of what you drink goes into milk. Sooo, most breastfeeding moms can get by with breastfeeding, having a drink and an hour later being able to feed again. Of course, depending on the mom and the drink. It does metabolize out of the body like it does your blood. The old man just probably doesn't know this. Sorry you got the weird look. You'll find that EVERYONE and their mothers will tell you how you should raise your baby and what you are doing wrong whether it is or not. akimber04

This may be a silly question but I would like some input. Is it ok to while out for a nice dinner to have a drink if you have your baby along with. I am the mother of a 3 month old and my DH and I sometimes go out for dinner with him along. I am not breastfeeding. We were out for dinner the other night and I had a drink in front of me while eating dinner; holding my son also. I got a nasty look and comment from a crotchety old man. Is there something wrong with this? Its not as if I am out to party, I stop at one. Its just frustrating!! I feel as if I am a very responsible and caring mother. Dus-Tine

My son is 18 months and still gags ( sometimes projectile vomit) if I give him anything with chunks..although pasta is fine...and the rest I have to knife and fork to death! It's been very frustrateimg esp since we can't afford to only buy gerber food...I try to give him as much home made food as possible. I've just been increasing the texture slowly over time..he won't even eat goldfish or cereal and shows no interest in feeding himself. b4bybl00m

Dus-Tine - my son had the same problem and still gags now on some foods at the age of 2.5, especially foods like thick porridge etc. He didn't eat his first 'non' pureed food until he was 1 year and 4 months, so I wouldn't worry. Some kids just take a litttle longer!! Dus-Tine

natalie..some advice is the best monitor to get (if you worried about hearing her when she sleeps) is the angelcare monitor...it also dectects breathing...so if there is not breathing detected , an alarm will sound. i had it for my daughter. :) congrats and good luck Dus-Tine

Ladies, I have two questions to see if anyone can help. First one, I am looking for a good! glass bottle warmer. Nothing I see online has high enough ratings to grab my attention and I don't want to buy another warmer that doesn't warm in the first run & leaks all over the place like our last Munchkin one.
AND I need immunization advice...our 1.5 week old is getting his this Friday and I'm looking to glean for any research you may have done on the topic. Are you just going for all the recommended ones or picking & choosing and if so, which ones & why? Please leave your comments on my page as I need to go chase a toddler while bf an infant haha :) THANK YOU!!!!!!!! dreamgirl

I really love the Adiri nurser bottles. Has anyone ever heard of this bottle? the problem I'm having is finding a store that sells them in Indiana. I have ton of online stores, but I hate paying extra for shipping. Does anyone have any idea what stores sell them?
