The author of a must have book Preemies the Essential Guide for Parents of Premature babies has now come up with a wonderful app for your iphone for iPad.
|My Preemie App|
This is an amazing app for on the go..Not only does any parent want to track their childs progress but as a preemie parent I can't stress enough the importance of tracking growth, medications, reactions to medications, good days, bad days...etc.
Keeping a journal came in handy for us, especially when we got home from the NICU, it was (and still is in some ways) a good way to vent, more important its a way to reflect on how far your baby has come, all the important milestones they reach.
It also comes in handy during followup doctors visits, to look at trends and things my son would respond to or not respond to. What comforted him. What made his oxygen saturation's plummet...etc..
Now, not more lugging around a notebook!! I'm excited to have learned about this app called My Preemie. It gives you everything you need. Including a Pocket Guide of definitions that get you through the ABC's of the NICU.
You can read more about the app here.
Then download and enjoy!! Definately worth it!! Such a great idea.
disclosure; My preemie contacted me to try out there app. All opinions are my own.
