Looking back, a lot of the early days with my first baby were a haze... I was definitely preoccupied by soaking up as many snuggles as I could. But, I do clearly remember the moment just an hour or two after he was born when a nurse checked in on us and gave me a baby care log that I was supposed to use to track whenever he ate or had a dirty diaper.
"This is how you time how long you breastfed and this is how to calculate how long it was between sessions," she said as if it was the most intuitive thing in the world. "While you're here, you'll want to wake him up to breastfeed every..."
As the instructions went on, I felt more and more overwhelmed. And that was when we were in the hospital with knowledgeable people around to help me stay on track, so my anxiety only increased when I had to keep track of everything at home.
A better baby care log
The fact is that, with a new baby, it is important to log feedings, diapers, sleep schedules and more. Being aware of all of this can help you keep your baby's growth on track during a critical time. But, also? It's a lot—on top of the already big task of taking care of your new baby. Add to that the very realf sensation of mom brain and logging all of this can simply be too much to manage with paper and pen.
Enter: Talli Baby one-touch logging devices. With an intuitive-yet-effective design that allows you (or any caregiver) to quickly log feeds, changes, naps and more, this device takes the pressure and frustration out of using a baby care log.
Truly, the genius in the Talli logging device is its simplicity: Just click a button on the tracker to register a feeding, pumping session, diaper change, sleep time or customizable miscellaneous activity, such as when you gave your baby a medication. The tracking device then instantly syncs with an app on your phone through Wi-Fi—even if the device and your phone are in separate locations. The device and app are even compatible with Alexa, so you can use your voice to record a feeding session if your hands are full. #momlife
For example, say you want to log how long your baby napped: Press the sleep button once when your little one goes down for a snooze and then press it again when they wake up.
When you need to refer back to baby log recordings, the app provides real-time, thorough data. With the app, you can also add notes about the amounts of food, types of diapers or more. The result is a thorough, beneficial picture of how your baby is doing without nearly as much manual effort of mental math on your part.
And, unlike other baby care logging apps that put all the power (aka pressure) in one person's hands, any caregiver can use the Talli Baby logging device to note what's going on throughout the day. This can be especially helpful for working parents who want to keep track of their baby's schedule without constantly asking for updates.
As a new parent, helping your baby thrive is always going to be a top priority. Thankfully, the complicated, old-fashioned way to keep track of your baby's daily routine got a much-needed update with the Talli Baby app—so you can focus on the things that matter most rather than constantly watching the clock to know when it's time for another feeding or diaper change.
