WebMD Launches FREE Baby Health-Care App!

WebMD. Do you frequent this site? I do, and often. They boast being the, ‘leading source of health information’ and I would have to concur. One of them, anyways. As a parent I can trust the information I find there.

In an age where everything is so internet heavy and everyone is an expert — sometimes you want nothing but the best research and evidence when it comes to healthcare. From credible sources. I signed up for the daily email newsletter a long time ago.

Yesterday, they launched WebMD Baby. A Baby app for iPhone and iPod touch. The best part? It’s FREE!

As their press release states, it…

Gives parents quick access to pediatrician approved health information for infants and toddlers…including key features such as:

  • Personalized and pediatrician-approved health and wellness information for baby and toddler to keep new parents one step ahead of their baby’s growth and development, anywhere and anytime and enables more informed pediatrician visits. For babies 0-1, a new health and wellness tip is sent to the app every day, as well as more in-depth content every week. For babies and toddlers ages 1-2, information relevant to their age is sent to the app monthly. WebMD’s tips and information on the app can be easily shared through email, Facebook or Twitter.
  • Streamlined search capabilities that help parents find immediate, trusted answers to their baby health and wellness questions with physician-reviewed answers. Information is organized by easy-to -understand topics (feeding and nutrition, growth and development, vaccines) and by the baby’s age, simplifying a parent’s search for trusted answers to immediate baby health and wellness questions.
  • Baby routine and record keeper that gives parents and caregivers a snapshot of baby’s health and wellness by allowing them to easily record and share baby’s routine (feeds, diaper changes, sleep). A personal growth chart for baby/toddler is also integrated into the app allowing information to be easily added right from the pediatrician’s office.
  • Baby book feature that allows parents to capture baby’s memorable moments including baby’s “firsts” with videos or photos taken on the spot or pulled from their iPhone library. Baby book memories can be shared with family and friends through email or Facebook as they happen.

If you clicked on the link, then you’ll be subjected to the video. Well. Uhm….maybe it’s just me, but slightly weak — no? Not the video per se — but the super organized pre-mom as depicted? Groan. But still. Gives ya the goods on how cool the app is. I for one would enjoy a slightly less annoying form of promo. Sorry WebMD! The app is awesome though! What do you think?
