Nara Baby FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I use the Nara Baby tracking app?
A scheduled baby is a happy baby. Babies crave routine; as a parent, you do everything you can to provide a comforting and predictable schedule for your little one. That's why we've created an app that is intuitive, fuss-free, and shareable across multiple devices—so you have more time to spend on the important stuff.
Nara Baby is your shared hub for tracking all things baby. You and all your baby's caregivers can log activities throughout the day for seamless communication, making scheduling a breeze. Add breast and bottle feeding sessions, pumping, sleep and diaper changes with just a few simple taps, and review the day in an easy-to-read log. You got this! And don't worry, your data is only shared with users authorized by you.
I forgot to start or stop the timer. Can I edit the start or stop time? Can I add a new entry without using the timer at all? Sometimes I just don't have my phone!
Yes. To add or edit a timer entry, simply tap the hour or minute number to bring up the keyboard and type in the correct duration.
What do the red marks on some entries in my history mean?
Red indicators appear on timers that have exceeded normal limits—for example, a sleep timer that has run for over 24 hours. The idea is to make it easier to find these problems and correct them.
What is the source of the growth charts and percentiles in the app?
The Nara Baby growth charts and percentiles use the WHO Child Growth Standards. Specifically, Length/height-for-age, Weight-for-age, and Head circumference for age.
Joining a Family
Can I add my partner/relative/caregiver, so we can all use the app together and sync our data?
Yes. Send them an invite from the ‘Family’ tab, and they'll receive an email prompting them to create an account. If they already have an account, they'll see the invitation at the top of their ‘Family’ tab.
We know families come in many shapes and sizes. You might have a partner, relative, babysitter, or someone else helping care for your child, and we want to make it easy to use our app to do so. Once you add someone to your family, they have 100% full access in the app the same way that you do.
Can I remove a caregiver?
Yes. The account that created the family can remove other caregivers. From the ‘Family’ tab, tap the caregiver, then tap ‘Remove’.
Can I be a caregiver for multiple families?
Yes. Starting with version 1.13.0 of the app, a single account can belong to more than one family. Each family has its own set of children and caregivers. Once you've set up your families, you'll be able to switch between all the children in the usual way.
How can I delete my account?
To delete your account, email email@example.com from the same email address you used to sign up for the app. We'll reply with instructions to complete the process.
What should I do if I want help with the app or have a suggestion for making the app better?
We love hearing your suggestions! We also love hearing about any issues you're running into, so we can make the app better for everyone. Email firstname.lastname@example.org any time!
Are there ads or in-app purchases?
No. The app is completely free! We are parents who wanted an intuitive, fuss-free tracking app that was also free of ads or upsells, and so we built one ourselves.
Can I download my data?
