Las Vegas, Nevada – Available today, the iPhone app Becuddle simplifies parenthood by helping parents communicate child care information with each other, child care providers, as well as friends and family. The app connects parents of small children in a way that existing social networks do not, by focusing on the information they most need to share.
The app helps users set up daily routines for things like medications or tummy time, and allows parents to record diaper changings, feedings and naptimes. The app provides at-a-glance reminders of how long it’s been since the last meal, feeding or changing, and also lets parents record information like doctor visits, vaccines, illnesses, growth, and personal milestones. Becuddle also provides breastfeeding timers to help mothers remember how long they’ve nursed or pumped for, how long it has been since the last nursing, and which side they last nursed from.
Parents can invite other users to be “cuddlers” with their child, allowing them to view and record information about that child. Becuddle uses strong encryption and rigidly adheres to industry best practices to guarantee the safety and privacy of child information.
“We’re really just parents who wanted to make the service we wish we’d had,” said Jonas Acres, President of Becuddle. “If you’re taking turns with an infant, it’s hard to remember who did what and when, so we obsessed over speed and ease of use. The last thing parents need is yet another complex gadget to learn.”
