As a sleep-deprived new mom, most of the day is spent trying to remember the last time you fed your baby, changed a diaper, or how long they slept for. The old school hair tie trick to remember which side you last nursed on is easily forgotten—especially when you accidentally use the only hair tie on your wrist to reset your messy bun. 

Those early days of nursing and feedings can be a magical bonding experience, but they can also be stressful and overwhelming, especially with cluster feeding, late-night nursing, long feeding sessions, and sleepless nights. To help know if your baby is consuming enough milk or formula, an app to track infant feedings can be very helpful. Whether you are breastfeeding, giving pumped milk in a bottle or formula feeding every new mom would benefit from a baby feeding schedule app. Luckily there are several apps to track infant and baby feedings along with diaper changes, sleep, baby milestones, medication, formula, pumping and so much more. 

We’ve rounded up the top eight baby feeding tracker apps that each come with unique features tailored to your specific needs as a mom or caregiver.
