Katie has been using a feeding tracking app (Baby Feeding Log) for the last couple of weeks. It works well, but doesn’t allow you to share your info active collaboration with the other parent.

The primary reason for tracking feeding, for us, was so we could both, pardon the pun, stay abreast of Frankie’s routine. The tracked info does us little good if we can only see what we already know we did.

With that, last night I spent a little time to set up frankipedia. Basically, I created a standalone WordPress site with a form for submitting diaper changes, feeding, and sleep. I used gravity forms and the gravity forms + custom post type plugin to create the form. Then I did a little basic child theming to WordPress’ 2013 theme and set some time tracking variables. I gave Katie and myself a login and then I waited for Franklin to do something. And that’s basically it.

Here are some pics of the app, totes.

I made this!


I guess my wife helped.

Our friend Kailee came and hung out with us late Friday night, into early Saturday morning, and took some great photos. Look back soon to see a link to the complete birth story and more pictures of our beautiful baby girl, Franklin Louise.

Here is the complete set! link

Idea Dumpster: Netflix by Runtime

Here is an idea which should be implemented, but not by me, so I’m throwing out. If you like it, take it.

As all parents know, sometimes the actual runtime or length of a children’s program is just as important as the program itself. There should be a way to easily sort Netflix, or any other streaming service, by the runtime of a movie or show.

If I could view all programs which fit a length criteria I would be more readily able to choose an appropriate, quick, distraction while finishing dinner; or easily avoid hour-long episodes when we want to watch a short program before pajama-thirty.
