I took my first baby to baby classes 3 times a week until he was 2. I learned developmentally appropriate songs to sing to him and games to play with him, and I had someone who was trained in child development there to tell me what milestones to look for as he grew.
Yeah, um… I have no time for such things now with baby #4. I also can’t remember most of those songs and games, and couldn’t really tell you what milestone should happen when because mom-brain is not a myth. I just know he should probably be walking before we try to potty train him.
There is A LOT going on with baby those first three years, though, and I don’t want to miss out engaging with Wallace and keeping track of his milestones just because he’s the 4th baby. We also get pretty tired of staring at each other after a while, even though he is super cute. So when WeeSchool reached out to me about working with them on this sponsored post to tell you all about their app, it was an easy yes.
Download the WeeSchool App here by June 1, and you can register for the free, lifetime access to all premium WeeSchool content and features.
You can see in the picture above that the app makes it easy to track and document baby’s monthly milestones. It’s honestly been fascinating, and quickly checking things off and uploading photos and videos has been a fun way to pass the time while feeding him.
It’s not just for tracking milestones, though, it’s for helping you support them as baby develops. WeeSchool tracks baby’s development through 117 key milestones, providing research-based insights and play prompts, which is awesome when you’re staring at your newborn, wondering how to “play” with them.
We have really been loving the Play Plans this month, which include music that Wallace immediately connects with. He was so soothed by the Keeping It Soft song in Month 2, that he fell asleep in my arms while we were listening to it and rhythmically swaying, no boobs needed!
The Play Plans are the first-ever curriculum for babies from birth to age 3, all based on education principles. Sounds serious, but they’re really fun! It’s all about playing, supported by recommended activities, toys, books, and music.
Oh, and WeeSchool is the brainchild of the mind behind Baby Einstien- Julie Clark. I’m really impressed that all of this is FREE right now, you guys. It’s such great quality. Just be sure to get the WeeSchool app and register by June 1, 2017.
There’s so much more to the app – the journal feature! the smart shopping suggestions!- but I don’t have much time to tell you all about it because it’s been a few minutes since I fed Wallace, and he’s starving again. You can find out a lot more on WeeSchool.com.
If you have a baby younger than 3 and an iPhone, I don’t think you’ll regret downloading the app and giving it a try.
Now, I know you Android users are going to wonder if there’s a version coming for you, and there is! Soon! Follow WeeSchool on Facebook to keep up with their announcements.
