Trio of iPhone apps that track the progress of babies

[prMac.com] Ballinamore, Ireland - Pregnancy, childbirth and the first few months of a baby's life can put parents into a spin of worry. iPhone app development company Infinite Touch has developed not one but three apps to put parents' and family members' minds at rest at three distinct stages of parenthood.
The inspiration for the development of the trio of apps (Fetal Sleep Tracker, Contraction Tracker, Baby Feed Tracker Plus) by Irish iPhone app developer Andy Dunn of Infinite Touch was the upcoming birth of his daughter, due in September 2012.
"Having built the Fetal Sleep Tracker and Contraction Tracker apps, I identified a gap in the market for an elegant looking, easy and simple to use baby feed tracker app. Other apps are cluttered with unnecessary features. As I had read many books for new parents ahead of the birth of my child, I was able to focus on features that meet the genuine needs of parents. Baby Feed Tracker Plus is ideal for a busy mum or dad - it has larger buttons and icons which make it easier to log items in the app when you've a baby in the other arm."
Baby Feed Tracker Plus tracks a baby's feed (breast and bottle), naps and nappy changes. It also includes push notification reminders for feeding and napping. As the app has the facility for mothers to input details of which side they breastfed from last as well as how much milk they have expressed, it may encourage mothers reluctant to breastfeed.
Baby Feed Tracker Plus is an ideal app for mothers already used to monitoring parts of their own lives through updates to and push notifications from social networks, calendars, food, drink and exercise tracking apps.
"It offers unparalleled statistics on every element of the baby's feeding, sleeping and nappy changes. These statistics can help comfort and reassure new parents and can be emailed or shared with health professionals to get a picture of a new baby's nutrition and development."
Mothers (and fathers) who like the easy user interface of Dunn's apps can keep an eye out for further apps as his child grows. "As my daughter gets older I intend to continue developing apps that grow with her and help her learn."
