I like the idea of this app but it really needs to be improved because it’s not worth the money at this point. There needs to be an easier way to adjust the daily wake time without having to edit each individual part of the schedule. It automatically has 7am as wake up for my kids. They both wake at 8am and it’s extremely annoying that I can’t just bump the schedule to 8. My 2.5yo does not nap and I wish I could delete the nap from his schedule but it won’t let me. I have tried absolutely everything to keep his nap but it’s just not happening. Not all children need that nap at his age. It would be really nice to have a bit more freedom with the way schedules are displayed. I also agree it would be nice if we could track feedings/sleep/ect in the app to compare. This app is honestly not worth money and should be free at its current state.
I read the reviews and was super skeptical about buying this app. Most reviews said it was non-customizable. I have the 0-6mo book and it states in the book that options are available for different schedules in the app so I wanted to see for myself and just paid the $3.99. I am happy to say you definitely CAN customize a schedule based on your life - i.e. changing feeding times and nap times etc. to accommodate work schedules and stuff. But that is literally all it can do. But in my opinion, if you have the book, or know the basis of the schedule that moms on call uses, you don’t need this app at all. Just write it down yourself what schedule you want to use. The downfall with this app is mostly the fact that you cannot actually keep track of what your baby is actually doing that day. The app Baby Tracker is phenomenal with tracking the times your baby is actually eating and sleeping but lacks the recommended schedule section that MOC has. In my opinion, MOC Schedule app NEEDS to add a way to track your baby’s eating and sleeping to be able to compare it to what they SHOULD be doing. This would greatly benefit the subscribers and make the app so much better. So in conclusion, this app is not worth the money.
I had the old app which just basically had the schedules from the book and worked fine, but it wouldn’t update with iOS 11. I contacted the company and they wouldn’t refund or grant access to the new app, so I had to buy the new one (which feels like extortion). The new one has only one schedule option per age group (the old had 2), and it is not customizable, making it rather pointless to set reminders unless you are following the precise schedule. Kinda hard when I was following the second option for one of the schedules, which isn’t even available here. Moms on Call should have automatically updated their old customers and maybe I wouldn’t be so frustrated with how bad this app is. With the crazy amount of money they make, they need to hire a decent developer and make a worthwhile app. It should have all the options that are in the book as a starting point, allow you to customize, and even allow you to import into your calendar.
I download this app mainly because I read the Moms on Call book and like to do thing in their fullness so I wanted to see what it was about and how it could help. For having an easy to view schedule that gives you notifications and small details about each task, I think it does good job! As mentioned by others, being able to log what your child actually did that day (ie., time they went to sleep, where they slept [car seat, crib, etc.], when and what they ate, when they woke up, etc.) would be incredibly useful!! But for the app’s current intention, it works very well. I am so thankful for Moms on Call!
I did not read the book but I bought it. I used this ap for my 2nd baby which was 4 years after having my first. While it isn’t a step by step how to it gave me the basics; When to do when and for how long. I also found this schedule to naturally work for my baby. I wasn’t waking her up when she was sleeping and It felt very natural. It just worked. It just was a reminder of what she needed when and why she was crying. I’ve recommended it to all my new moms out there. She has been an awesome 7-7 sleeper for a long time. Total victory
