A buddy for babies! Helps caregivers track sleep, feedings, diaper changes, and tummy time to learn about and predict baby's needs without (as much) guess work.

A demo of Baby Buddy is available on Heroku. The demo instance resets every hour. Login credentials are:

  • Username: admin
  • Password: admin


⚠️ Baby Buddy is still in early development and does not yet have a stable production deployment flow. ⚠️



Once the app is deployed, log in with the default credentials (admin/admin).



pip install pipenv
pipenv install --dev
npm install -g gulp-cli
npm install
gulp migrate

Open and log in with the default user name and password (admin/admin).

Fake data

Add some fake data to the database with the following command:

gulp fake

By default, fake creates one child and 31 days of random data. Use the --children and --days flags to change the default values, e.g. gulp fake --children 5 --days 7 to generate five fake children and seven days of data for each.


❗️ Tests require static files to be collected, it may be necessary to execute gulp build && gulp collectstatic before tests (if static files have changed).

gulp test
