Babytime Us App for Ios Users



Disclaimer - I am receiving compensation for this post from BabyTime, in return for posting about this app with the information provided to me by the company.







Today I am going to tell you about an app called Babytime this is a free baby tracking app for Ios. If you would like to download the app you can find it here Babytime you can also check out the Simfler site here.

There were many times when my son was first born I could have really used this app. My son was little more difficult than my daughter as a baby we had issues with feeding and finding a routine that was best for us. He spit up a lot and had to go to the Doctors many times before finding a solution to the problem. And we had to schedule feedings due to the spit up and limit the intake.   








Here are some reasons you might want to track baby activity. I will give you five of them 


1. Know babies needs with more accuracy- it's difficult for parents to know what their baby wants right away since talking isn't an option yet, but if you know his or her activity pattern, you can guess with confidence of what needs to be done.
 Also, you can ensure healthy mental and physical growth of your baby by planning a steady routine that will help keep the baby's and nutritional balance and check.

2. To improve quality of your babies sleep, naturally. Teaching your baby to sleep soundly at night is a skill that carries on into their adulthood. That's why you need to make sure that your baby has a consistent nap schedule and is getting plenty of sleep at night. Record what time your baby likes to take naps and use it to establish a nap and bedtime routine that works for both of you and the baby.

3. Create a feeding schedule. Record what time your baby's natural cues to feed occurs. Then, make a feeding schedule that works for both of you. Increase the feeding amount little by little as your baby grows.

4. Notice signs of sickness. Lethargy or irritability is often a sign of sickness. A daily record of your babies activities help you notice changes in their behavior, immediately. Additionally, the doctor will find your records helpful when examining your baby.

5. Happy parents, happy baby. Establishing a steady routine that works for both you and the baby allows you to feel prepared and set aside some time for yourself. Raising a baby is a long journey so do something that makes you happy once a day to re-energize for the next day.













Here are six ways to use babytime 

1. What to do when your baby is crying and you have no idea why. Baby time let you know exactly when your baby needs to feed, take a nap, or needs his diaper changed.


2. Is your baby not feeling well? Show your babies daily activities, recorded in baby time, to your doctor.


3. Have you started planning for your babies bedtime routine? Keep your plans consistent with the help of graphs and charts charts.


4. Are you a working mom or dad? You can connect with your babies babysitter through babytime.


5. Ever wonder how other moms are raising their babies? Gain parenting insights from our community.


6. Is mom and dad raising the baby together? Mom and dad can record and share their babies activities at the same time, on different devices.

I would highly suggest this app to new Mom's out there or even Dad's even if your a Mom for the 3rd or 4th time this sounds like something very interesting to try!!

Sponsored: Cubetto Coding Toy by Primo Toys

Thank you to Primo Toys for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.



Cubetto, the award winning, Montessori-approved coding toy for children ages 3 and up, is now available for purchase worldwide on www.primotoys.com. Cubetto is your child’s first year of coding education. 


I think this is genius for a lot of reasons at a  young age this is teaching our kids by color and code how to program things to work a certain way and I think this will benefit them in the future as well. 



Created by Primo Toys, Cubetto is the only screen-less programming system, powered by a revolutionary coding language made of colorful blocks that let's children write their first computer programs.




The Cubetto Playset is the easiest way for children to start learning computer programming, and it consists of a friendly wooden robot named Cubetto, a physical programming console, a set of expandable coding blocks, a collection of beautifully illustrated maps and an activity book. By placing the blocks in different patterns on the control panel, children create sequences of instructions that program the robot’s movement. 

This is also good because it sticks with age appropriate skills where the child won't get confused and they will understand because of it being on their level. This is going to prepare them for the future and I think it's great to have something like this for kid's so young.


In the process, they develop computational thinking skills that help them understand the basic principles of coding -- all of this, in a very age-appropriate way that respects a child’s natural way of learning.

The maps and activity books help children and parents get started with play, by navigating Cubetto through stories and challenges. Planning these mini adventures helps children learn more than coding. They learn to tell stories, to communicate, and to think critically and independently. 




I think it is very important at a young age that children learn to communicate early on because it will only benefit them in the future with other things that may come their way.   

Cubetto provides gender-neutral play that boosts a child’s creativity, critical thinking, spatial awareness and communication skills.  

Cubetto is the only coding toy that can be used by sighted and non-sighted children in the same setting, creating an equal learning environment that promotes inclusive play. 




By combining movement, touch and sound, Cubetto also helps children with disabilities strengthen their sequencing and communication skills.

Cubetto is available for purchase on www.primotoys.com for $225, or $245 when bundled with the Cubetto Activity Pack, which offers four additional world maps and matching story books. (Activity Pack priced $65 if sold separately). 

This is so great it comes in a bundle so you don't have to worry about going out and getting stuff to go with it.
