If you've read my blog for one second, you know that I very rarely do giveaways or product reviews unless I LOVE a company! So you know that I love this one, obviously ;)
For the last two years, I have documented Eden's growth and change every single day by saving a photo a day of her. Have you heard of people doing this? It's a special way to show the change in your little one in photos. We all know they grow so fast, and thanks to technology today, we have ways to document it in an organized way.
There are a few apps out there for the whole "photo a day" thing and I was using one for the past two years but I never "loved" it. There were certainly things I would have liked differently about the app, but since there were no other options, I just settled on it.
Right before the birth of Everly, I realized I should really get to work and start organizing all of the thousands of photos I have of Eden. Adding even more photos of a new baby into the mix was going to get disorganized fast. So one of my projects was to take all the photos from the photo a day project I had and compile them all into a book. Do you know how long that took? Forever! That was one of my many frustrations of the app-- I wanted a quick and efficient way to upload my photos and eventually turn them into a photo book. As a mom of littles, I need fast and efficient, can I get an amen?
Enter TinyBeans. I was scrolling through Instagram a few weeks before I had Everly and noticed a friend mentioned TinyBeans. Say what? A new app for documenting the every day life of my little one? I certainly was open to change and the timing could not be more perfect-- I wanted something new for Everly and something I could start with Eden on her 2nd birthday. And I needed an app that could support a photo a day of more than one child.
So I found the TinyBeans app and I fell.in.love. It was finally everything I was looking for in a photo a day app, and more! In the words of TinyBeans themselves, "TinyBeans is a platform that helps parents raise their children by enabling them to create their own Nurture Network of people and content that matter. Through the TinyBeans platform you can privately record moments and milestones with loved ones. Family and friends then provide encouragement and support as they help your child grow whilst experts supply personalized content based on your child's milestones to further feed their development."
This app is more than just a calendar app-- it's an online journal, milestone keeper, and baby journal for the whole family to see!
There are 3 different aspects to the app:
1.) Treasure // Where the calendar is located
2.) Shape // Includes specific details about each child: weight, height, etc. with different icons to click on -- Child Devlopment, Firsts, Reading, Healthy Home. Each icon takes you to an informative selection of reading material and/or clickable boxes to document your child's development. It is truly like an online baby journal and I love that it is all combined in one location-- photos, development info, family sharing and more!
3.) Share // This feature allows you access into your contacts to share your special moments with loved ones.
One of my favorite features is on the "Treasure" part of the app... I love that you can click on each child's picture and quickly upload to Facebook or Instagram, my two favorite social media platforms, right there in one simple click. SO easy!
