Royal Leamington Spa, United Kingdom – Baby Skills Ltd. has recently launched Baby Skills 1.2.1, a new lifestyle app dedicated to help parents track and record their child’s progress from birth to five years of age. Baby Skills allows parents to conveniently record every little milestone in their child’s life, share their achievements and memories with loved ones, and compare their child’s progress with other children – all in a few taps!
“Baby Skills is a fun and interactive way for parents to learn about their child. Every child develops differently, so the Baby Skills app focuses on the seemingly small yet very important milestones in a child’s development. By providing a personalized checklist of skills, the app helps parents to understand their child’s unique needs, and encourages parents to play an active role in their child’s developmental journey. They can then choose to share this journey with close friends and family.” explains Dr. Ian Saunders, founder of Baby Skills.
Baby Skills manages to strike the balance between fun and education, and offers something to suit every parent. Some parents will enjoy checking off skills, while others will prefer keeping a more detailed record with photos and notes. Concerned parents can be reassured by logging their child’s growth on a graph, or visualizing their child’s progress compared to the norm. Proud parents are sure to enjoy their child earning a ‘trophy’ for a major milestone, and will enjoy sharing updates with other proud parents, too!
“It started out as an extensive checklist so that I could keep track of my daughter’s progress. I found it really helpful to focus on one skill at a time – understanding my daughter’s needs really helped me to bond with her. The photo journal and news feed made it really easy to keep her grandparents up-to-date with the latest news, too!” added Dr. Saunders.

The Baby Skills App is developed and managed by UK-based Baby Skills Ltd, founded by Dr. Ian Saunders, a social entrepreneur and a proud dad. Dr. Saunders conceptualized the idea of Baby Skills to offer support and encouragement to new parents, realizing from his own experience the need for a pocket guide to parenting that distills decades of scientific research into easily-understandable, practical and motivating advice. The result was Baby Skills, a common platform where new parents could simultaneously track their child’s progress, record their memorable moments and become part of a community centered on their children as they enter the wonderful world of parenthood.
