Baby Check health app

An app designed to help parents decide how ill their baby is.

Parents and carers in Nottinghamshire are being advised to take advantage of the Baby Check app, designed to help parents decide how ill their baby is. It consists of 19 simple questions about signs and symptoms of illness which parents check for. Each check has a score and the scores are added up. The higher the total score, the sicker the baby is likely to be. Advice is offered on what to do in each situation.

Baby Check was originally published as a Lullaby Trust booklet and is now available as a free app. It automatically adds up the scores, tells parents how ill their baby is and what they should do next. The Lullaby Trust Baby Check app was developed in partnership between Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust and The Lullaby Trust.

The app can be downloaded for free on Google Play and in the App Store.
