Babies Digest is a simple and straightforward tool to track your baby's diaper and feeding schedule. After our first visit to the doctor with our new baby, it was pretty obvious that we needed a quick and easy way to keep track of this stuff. Every time we went to the doctor they would ask how much he was eating every day and how much output he had over a 24 hour period. We created babiesdigest.com with several things in mind:
- We neeeded something quick and easy
- Everyone needed to be able to enter and lookup information, from anywhere
- It needed to work on a smart phone, (preferrably) without an app
- The information needed to be private, only available to us and those we chose to share it with
With that in mind, babiesdigest.com (pardon the pun )was born. It's a web based application (no apps) that is designed to work on computer screens, smart phones and tablets. The interface is simple and practical, and very easy to use.
Registration and Setup
First things first. When you go to babiesdigest.com, the first thing you will see is a login page. Click the button to login with the platform of your choice, follow the instructions and you will be logged in with an account and no baby defined.
Making a baby
Once you login, you need to create a baby. This time, you just type in the baby's name and enter the birthday. If you already have a baby defined, or if someone added you to their account, you will see the babies name(s) here, as well. If you want to work with an existing baby, click their name.
Home and Navigation
After you create or select a baby, you are taken to the main app screen - the summary.
At first, the summary tab will be empty - it will not look exactly like the one below, but that's OK. Just note for now that there are tabs across the top -
Feeding. These are the main navigation buttons for the app. At the top right
hand corner you see a gear icon that accesses the settings page, and the top left
button is the home button.
After you have entered some diapers and feedings, the home screen shows you a quick summary of the past 24 hours activities:
|Diaper count for the last 24 hours|
|Last Wet Diaper|
|Last Dirty Diaper|
|Feeding amount for the last 24 hours|
|Breast Feeidng for the last 24 hours|
|Formula Feeding for the last 24 hours|
Click on the
diaper tab to enter and see diapers. There are 3 buttons on the diaper tab that
will create diapers. You can click on
Both to add a wet and dirty diaper right now,
Wet to create a wet diaper right now, or
Dirty to add a dirty diaper right now.
Create with different date and time
If you would like to change the date and time for the diaper that you are adding, click the calendar swtich and you can select a new date and time for the diaper. Once you have selected the new date and time, click a button to create the diaper at that time.
If you have some diapers for the last 24 hours, you will see a grey chip with 3 colored
numbers in it; This is the count of diapers that were
both-wet-dirty. For example,
2-1-3 means 2 wet & dirty diapers, 1 wet diaper, and 3 dirty diapers in the past
24 hours. Note that the color of number matches the color of the button for that
type of diaper.
There is also a chip that shows the most recent diaper (the color here corresponds to the diaper type)
To view a list of all diapers, click the blue list button.
This will bring up a page with all of the diapers that you have entered. Note that
you can click the
trash icon to delete a diaper.
Click on the
Feeding tab to enter or view feedings. There is a button for formula
and a button for feeding (you can hide the breast feeding button in the settings).
Create with different date and time
If you would like to change the date and time for the feeding that you are adding, click the calendar swtich and you can select a new date and time. Once you have selected the new date and time, adjust the amount (if needed) and click a button to create the feeding at that time.
There are 3 chips at the top of the feeding tab that show the most recent feeding and the total breast (if used) and formula feedings for the last 24 hour period.
