Today BabySparks, LLC, a technology company focused on baby development, announced the launch of its first iPhone app, targeted to parents of babies 0 - 12 months old. With hundreds of development-boosting activities and substantial child development and milestone content within the app, BabySparks is essentially a playbook that empowers parents to know exactly what to do and when to do it to help their children progress across key development areas. The activities and supporting content have been created with the collective wisdom of leading baby development experts with decades of research and practical experience.
For new parents, there are more questions than answers, as they navigate the world with a baby. "What should I feed my child?" "What gear do I need?" "Will I ever sleep again?" For parents who wonder, "What should I be doing to boost the progress of my baby? How can I best help my baby reach its full potential?" one clear answer is BabySparks.
Parents and caregivers need only enter a couple of pieces of information about their baby to get started. Based on their child's age, a suggested daily program of 9 - 13 activities will be available. Each activity provides simple instructions, illustrated by a quick video to help parents do the activity correctly. The daily program can be completed all at once or throughout the course of the day, as each activity only takes a few minutes. Or if they prefer a more focused approach, parents can look for activities around a specific need - by development area (i.e., gross motor, sensory, etc), location (i.e., at the park or at mealtime) or specific milestone (rolling over or crawling, for example).
"We chose to focus on a baby's first months and years of life because that is when a child's development is the fastest and most malleable. Any positive interaction or focused stimulation provides lifelong benefits to a child and often requires only a small effort," said Gustavo Rodriguez, managing partner and co-founder of BabySparks. "The proper development of their babies is a priority for most parents, but work, family, and other responsibilities often get in the way. We are parents ourselves and we are committed to building simple products that adapt to the lifestyles and constraints of today's parents."
