… It's really good. It stores your baby's weight, length/height and head circumference in a clear and readable format. It's very easy to use, and you can use WHO or CDC charts, and metric or imperial units. …

This is so much more straight-forward than any similar app I've used, both as a mom and in the clinic where I work. It's great as a parent to be able to keep track of your kids' growth this simply and clearly. I also like that it has both CDC and WHO percentiles. Definitely 5 stars!

…I use this app CONSTANTLY, not only to see where he's at currently with his growth, but I also enter information for the next month and see what our goal needs to be for his weight to keep him where we want him!! Thanks!!

Height, weight, head circumference: everything I wanted to remember. Summarizes the info on charts with percentile colored zones. Very nice!

I've been tracking by daughter's growth for 2 1/2 years using baby grow and love it! It is so easy to use and great to see her progress. I love that it has both CDC and WHO growth charts. Definitely the best baby app I have!

- Thebowersbunch

A simple and easy to use app. Can track more than one child which is great. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to keep track of their child's key measurements and growth.

Is BabyGrow Accurate?

BabyGrow uses data obtained directly from the CDC and WHO to calculate percentiles for measurements. We use an exhaustive test suite which ensures the percentiles BabyGrow calculates match those calculated by software provided by the CDC and WHO.

Apps for Parents, By Parents

I began working on BabyGrow while my wife was pregnant with our first son. Since then, I've used the app myself to keep track of the growth of my own children. Because I am familiar with every facet of the app, not only as a developer but also as a user and a parent, I am able to identify what about the app works well, and what doesn't. I strive to use that knowledge to improve BabyGrow, to make it the best app of its kind.

BabyGrow is an app for parents, developed by parents. I do the design and development, and my wife provides feedback, support, and ideas.

My wife also runs a blog about creative ways to play with your kids, yellowpop. Please check it out!
