Basics

Basic Instruction

How do I add my child's name

Nursing Setting

Go to the iPhone's main "Settings" screen.

You will see a new item if you scroll to the bottom
called "Nursing."

Here you can set your Child's name(s), Background Color, as well as a feature called "Baby Link" if you have twins or triplets.

If you are adding multiple children don't forget to
turn "Show" to "ON".


Nursing Setting

How do I switch between multiple children?

If you followed the instructions above you should have an indicator (show below in a black box)
showing that you can switch between multiple children.

Selecting a Child

To switch people children simply swipe your finger left or right in the area with the timer.

You can even switch people children when the timer is running just in case you start feeding and realize you are displaying the wrong child.

Starting the Timer

Tap the "L" or "R" to begin the timer,
the two buttons become a single color coded "STOP" button (gray = "left", red = "right") with a
safety pin displayed on the side you are currently nursing on.

Stopping the Timer

Tap the "STOP" to bring up the action sheet.

Action Sheet

Continue Feeding
Contines the timer in case the STOP was pressed in error.

Stop and Record ("current nursing side")
Records the current nursing side into the history log.

Begin ("alternate nursing") side
Records the current nursing side into the history log, then automatically begins the timer for the alternate side (saving you an extra tap and some thinking).

Start Over
Just in case you tapped the wrong side you can clear the timer and choose the alternate side.


A safety pin with the word "Last" marks the side that was jus recorded.
Nursing Sessions are grouped by durations of 30 minutes or less between feedings.

Finding out the last time you nursed

Tap the "Last Feed" in the upper-right corner to display the last time you nursed in days, hours, and minutes.

Deleting a Nursing Session from the history log

There are two ways to delete a nursing session:

  • Tap "Edit" in the upper-left corner, tap Delete Minus, then tap Delete.
  • Swipe your finger from left to right on the session you want removed, then tap Delete.

What is "Baby Link" in the Settings Screen

When you have twins or triplets you can turn on a special feature that helps you easily nurse one child to the next.

I have Twins or Triplets, how does Baby Tracker: Nursing help?

First of all congratulations I can't imagine how hard it must be to have twins let alone triplets.
So this feature is our attempt to make your life easier while Nursing at least.

Go to the iPhone "Setting" screen:
Now turn on the "Baby Link" setting for each twin (you must have at least two active for the feature to be enabled)

When you are nursing and press the stop button a new button option will appear.

Twin Support Tapping "Begin (L) w/name" will save the current time for the active child then automatically switch to the twin or triplet and start a new timing session.

How do I transfer all the saved data to my computer?

Tap the "Edit" button in the upper left corner, now tap the Email button.

Email CSV

The nursing application will quit and mail will open up with a new email waiting to be sent to your computer.
The data is written in a (CSV) format ready to import into Excel or any other spreadsheet program.

Note: For multiple children you will have to switch to the child using the swipe left or right then repeat the steps above.
