The FirstYear app is a great recording and journal tool of your baby’s growth and health patterns. When you initially load the app, you will be prompted to indicate whether you will be having a boy or a girl baby, their due date, their birth date, and their name. You also have the option to upload a photo of them as well.
From there you can add and edit information (or pictures) regarding the moment your baby was born, you and your baby’s joyful moments, and daily journal. You can also update statuses quickly with shortcut icons indicating feeding habits, sick days, milestones, doctor visits, and even little things like baths, and health concerns.
There are also weekly and monthly charts made available for you to easily document feedings/nursing times, formulas, diaper changes, sleeping patterns, and a lot of other important things a parent should remember. Options to print or email the charts are also made available.
