Use a phone app to log your baby's sleeping, eating, and diaper changes.
Participation in this study will take a few seconds at various times each day. You can log for a week, for a month, or for the whole year.
To get this study off the ground as quickly as possible, we're asking participants to purchase the Baby Connect app. The developers of Baby Connect have agreed to make your baby’s data available to us. Neither New York University nor the researchers at NYU involved in this project have a financial interest in Baby Connect. Baby Connect is a popular baby tracking app for Android, iPhone, iPad, and Windows phone. It allows multiple caregivers to track daily information about sleep, feeding, and diaper changes. It has an easy to use interface, unlimited data, and real time information exchange (between multiple caregivers). These features make our study possible. In addition, the app provides other features that you might find useful.
It's great if you are already using Baby Connect or if you have an older child for whom you used Baby Connect in the past. As soon as you sign up, we'll get all of the information that you've already logged.
You may be wondering: "What is the purpose of the study?", "Who are the researchers?", "Will my baby's information be kept confidential?", "Will I get paid to participate in the study?", "Why do I need to pay for the app?", "What do I get in return?", "Will I learn anything about my child?".
