Created by experts and parents and designed to inform, comfort, organize, and engage, the MyPreemie app promotes parent well-being and engagement in the NICU and beyond!
Did you know Graham’s Foundation has the only app focused exclusively on prematurity, MyPreemie, which is available for iOS (install here) and Android (install here), in both English and Spanish? It’s the only comprehensive app for preemie parents available in for both iPhone and Android AND in English and Spanish!
We worked with the authors of Preemies: The Essential Guide for Parents of Premature Babies to create an app designed to educate parents of preemies while meeting their emotional needs. More than just a guide, MyPreemie is a beautiful baby book where parents of preemies can track a preemie’s growth and development along with all of the firsts they’ll experience in and out of the NICU.
The daily journal comes complete with prompts that help preemie parents chronicle a preemie’s major events and milestones in text and photos, as well their own feelings. They can also check a preemie’s progress easily. The MyPreemie app automatically plots a preemie’s daily recorded weight, length, and head size on a custom growth chart.
Reviews of the MyPreemie app:
The MyPreemie app is a great help. When my baby was delivered at 25 weeks, I knew I wanted to keep some sort of journal. This app lets me track my son’s progress, send updates to family members and friends and it’s lovely to look at. Everything around us seems so sterile. The gentle colors of here are calming. It’s a great gift idea if you know a preemie parent! ~ Phenom821
When you have a child the first thing you want to so it write about the first days. When you have a preemie you want to do the same but need to do and understand more. This app is a great way to track your preemies progress, growth and more. A good idea to keep a diary because as your preemie grows and goes home it helps you and doctors to understand trends such as behaviors before s/he was sick, reactions to medications. Etc. I highly recommend this app. ~Chris & Linda
You have to see this app to realize what a must-have it is for parents in the NICU. It is beautiful and comprehensive. Kudos to the authors of the “preemie bible” for creating such an elegant app. ~ tessiroo
Forging a partnership with parents of premature infants in the NICU just got easier and a lot more fun, thanks to a terrific app for parents called MyPreemie. The app comes from the same team (two mothers of premature babies and a neonatologist) who wrote the highly-praised book Preemies: The Essential Guide for Parents of Premature Babies. It’s a whole new way to prompt conversations and bring up crucial topics while helping the family keep track of it all. ~ The National Association of Neonatal Therapists
This is a must-have for parents of premature babies I the NICU. You have to try it to understand how much it will help you – with all sorts of useful information relevant to your preemie, a Diary to keep track of everything, and tools that will make you feel more productive during long hours spent with your baby. This is also a great gift for anyone who has a preemie. In fact, I can’t imagine a better gift! ~ Spikester52
