BABY FEED TIMER
The first few weeks of parenthood are pretty much as follows: feed, change, sleep & repeat. But with little to no sleep, it can be hard to remember when what or even how. With this app, you can track your breastfeeds, bottle feeds, sleep, and even nappies. What’s even more interesting, is you can see & follow a pattern to help build a routine for you & your baby.
