The leap schedule alone is def worth the $4, the sanity it gives is priceless. Knowing that the stormy period will come to an end and your baby will go back to the sweet angel they once were is such a relief! I found that to be the most helpful and useful part of the ap. Leap 4 was awful but it ended exactly on the day it said it would. We were both about to loose our minds.
Im a first time parent and the ap updated just before leap 5, i like the new look and format but not the the interactive parts. Like other reviewers the diary part is not useful, I really don't have time for that. Much preferred the previous way clicking off each task when accomplished. Im often interrupted and like being able to pick up where left off.
Developer, please can you double check the skills? Leap 6 says baby will ASK someone to sing a song & understand the names of animals.. baby is not close to being that verbal.. im wondering if something glitched. Also I tried to use the nap tracker and its more trouble than its worth. Have to be able to pick up where i left off, not enter start and end at once.. or all naps. I tried to do it as the day went and it didnt add the total time together. i can barely remember how many time i fed baby last night. Please make things as simple as possible, my brain capacity is limited to most crucial items or not at all.
Want to share this app for all parents.
This is the one and only app I’ve ever actually paid for and I 100% recommend it to all parents!
I’ve learned so much about Walter’s development, how to help him while he’s learning new skills and also it helped me be more patient with him while he’s learning these new skills.
At first I was disappointed and underwhelmed in the app, because it was highly talked about in a lactation group I follow on Facebook. But once he went through his first leap/brain development it helped me tremendously by warning me of the leap, what changes in behavior to expect and how to help your baby become less fussy (and sleep again) faster. I didn’t realize just how much I reference the knowledge I’ve learned from this app until recently.
Go spend the $4 for your sleep, sanity and baby!
I absolutely loved this app so it is hard to rate because I hate it now. I recommend to everyone. It was perfect! I liked how it told me what things my baby might be going through and why he was going through it as well as the new things your baby might be doing now. Now it is more of a diary where you tell the app what is going on. It still gives tips on activities you can do to help with the new development but overall we hate the new update. Luckily we have an iPad where the update didn’t happen and we use that to see what’s going on. Luckily he only has a few leaps left. I would Not recommend this new updated version. Especially having to pay for the app. If you want a journal that documents when your baby cries more often then this is for you.
I’ve been a fan and user of this app since 2018 with my first born and have always loved and recommended it. However this past year they launched an insane redesign making it difficult to find the useful information we were previously accustomed to. Sadly while the developers hopes to enhance the app my experience and that of my fellow mama friends is that the new update has made using the app less enjoyable and hard to navigate. Wish we had an option to bring back the old version especially when we pay for the app.
The update to this app is the worst. I use to enjoy the app before they changed the format. Now it’s difficult and too complicated to use. I rarely open the app to read anything. The app got a downgrade for sure. It was worth the price when I initially purchased it. Now I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. I feel sorry for people who currently purchase this app. It’s not straightforward and not user friendly. It’s a real disappointment.
Read the book and skip the app.
I heard wonderful things about this app from a friend who used is awhile ago so I downloaded it. I’ve come to find the app is not user friendly, is very confusing, hard to navigate and honestly doesn’t provide much information that I couldn’t just google online. My friend looked at it and apparently it’s changed since she used it, what a shame. Wish I wouldn’t have spent $4 or whatever it cost.
The most recent update has made this app virtually useless- and it wasn’t that useful before, tbh. Information is poorly organized and difficult to access, and I haven’t found that it has predicted any of my nine month olds’s moods. I recommend reading Caring for Your Baby and Young Child to get a feel for your baby’s developmental phases. Don’t waste your money on this.
For an app that costs money, I’d expect better information and easier use. These “leaps” make no sense, and the app doesn’t explain what they are at all. It also asks you to input info using the word “you.” Does this actually mean me or does it mean my baby? Then it won’t let me save the info it asks me! Waste of money for sure.
Not sure if the new update will grow on me, but for now I’m not loving it. I liked it better when you knew exactly how many days were left in or until a Leap, not loving the number line.
ETA- they have apparently updated to re-add the counter. Tired moms everywhere thank you, rating increased
The app crashes every time I open it, I am very disappointed. I have been journaling every day in it for 7 weeks to record what my baby has been doing and I have lost everything. Will be moving on to sometime else and telling my mom friends not to waste their time with this app.
