Baby tracking app for both parents: how to share access

Parenting in the digital age can be both a blessing and a challenge. As new parents, you might find yourselves relying on parenting or baby tracking apps to keep track of your baby's feedings, sleep patterns, and milestones. However, many of these apps cater to a single user, making it difficult for both parents to stay updated. Some apps offer sharing features, but they often come with an additional cost. So, how can you ensure that both parents and even extended family members are involved without breaking the bank?

The importance of shared access in baby tracking apps

Having a baby tracker app that both parents can access is incredibly beneficial. Here are some key reasons why shared access is crucial:

  1. Consistency in care: Both parents having access to the same information ensures consistency in the care provided to the baby. Tracking feedings, naps, and diaper changes helps maintain a stable routine.

  2. Better communication: Shared access fosters better communication between parents. They can leave notes for each other, update the app with real-time information, and avoid miscommunication.

  3. Support for working parents: Shared access means working parents can stay informed about their baby's day even when they are not physically present. This reduces stress and allows for better planning and coordination.

  4. Involving extended family: Many families rely on extended family members for childcare support. Shared access allows grandparents and other caregivers to stay updated and involved, providing additional support and reassurance to parents.

Challenges with current baby tracking apps

Despite the clear benefits, many parenting apps fall short when it comes to shared access. Most are designed with a single user in mind, making it cumbersome for both parents to use the app simultaneously. Some apps do offer sharing features, but they often come at an additional cost, making it an expensive option for many families.

Introducing Onoco: a baby tracking app for both parents:

In the landscape of baby tracking apps, Onoco is named by parents as a game-changer. Onoco was designed with the philosophy that "it takes a village to raise a child," making it incredibly easy for families to share access without any additional costs.

How to share access?

Sharing access in Onoco is simple and secure. Users can invite other family members during the registration process or add them later in just three easy steps:

  1. Navigate to the "My family" section: Open the Onoco app and go to the relevant section within the app settings.

  2. Send an invitation: Enter the email addresses of the family members you wish to invite. They will receive an email with a secure link that simplifies their registration process and links them to your family account.

  3. Set access levels: Family admins can determine the access level for each invited member. Options include "Full Access," "Edit Own Posts and Entries," or "View Timeline Only."

This robust sharing feature is designed to keep your family’s data secure while providing the flexibility to involve multiple caregivers.
