DA Baby is designed and developed by me, Dolee Yang. I live in Menlo Park, California with my wife and daughter. The idea came from when our daughter was born and we were searching for a baby activity tracker with a good taste. But we couldn’t find one with a great first launch experience. As a result, we just went back to pen and paper. We no longer need one for our daughter, but the lack of a great activity tracker app still bothered me. So I got my hands dirty during my nights and weekends outside of my jobby job, and launched an MVP version. This is just the beginning, and I have so many ideas of what DA Baby could become.
What does “DA” mean?
DA stands for DoleeArts, my umbrella brand for all of my apps. It is pronounced as two letters, D, A.
