We started using Baby Insights the day I found it, when Christina was 3 weeks old. It has been extremely helpful! You wouldn’t believe how often I run over to the computer to see how long it’s been since she last ate, had a diaper change, or when I last pumped.

Carole and Clint’s Story
Carole and Clint have 3 children at home; 2 (ages 5 and 6) are from Carole’s previous marriage. Their youngest (Clint’s first) is now 4 weeks old. Carole has to keep up with her food/drink intake to help her manage her milk supply. (She had low milk supply with her first 2 and wants to make sure that doesn’t happen again.)
Clint and Carole both love technology and using technology to help manage their lives. (If it isn’t in ACT!, it pretty much doesn’t get done.)
"The lactation consultant had questions we couldn’t answer about how much I’m eating and drinking, how much the baby is nursing, how many wet/dirty diapers she’s having, etc. I’m so busy trying to keep up with doing all of those things that I just couldn’t spare any mental energy for remembering them! We tried writing them down on scrap pieces of paper that kept getting misplaced. We thought about putting it all into an Excel spreadsheet, but that would have taken time which we didn’t have. Plus when we were away from home we’d be right back to using scraps of paper!"
"Finally, it occurred to me that somebody might have already prepared a log sheet and posted it online, so I searched Google and happened upon a blog that mentioned Baby Insights; I really liked the idea of tracking everything online because I can access my account when I’m not at home, and I don’t have to try to keep it all in my head anymore."
