The Zaky APP - Instructions for Parents

Creating your baby account in The Zaky mobile APP will take about 5 minutes.

When you join a team, your baby automatically participates in contests scheduled by the Team Leader. You may join and leave the team at any time.

Step 1 - Create an account for your baby

Go to

Click on Parents or the link to download the mobile app.

iPhone, iPad, Android, Tablet.

Step 2 - Join a team

To join a team, have the TEAM CODE ready and click on COMPETE on the lower menu bar.

Create a SCREEN NAME for the baby which will be shared with other team members (babies, coaches, team leader).

Step 3 (OPTIONAL) Invite others to your baby's group

Invite your partner, family members, anyone that you would like to participate with you in your baby's mobile app account.

They will have access to the activities you choose, and are able to collaborate in the journal.

Only those with access to the Kangaroo Care Activity will be able to see the baby's COMPETE tab.

Step 4 - COMPETE

See your baby's and team ranking.

What you share:

With other parents and coaches in your own team, you share the baby's screen name, kangaroo care duration, and City/State/Country.

With the Team Leader, you also share the parent's name (the one that registered the baby on the mobile app), baby's name, and the optional short survey after tracking every kangaroo care session.

With other teams, only the aggregate of the team's kangaroo care duration is shared.

Step 5 - Track your Kangaroo Care Sessions

Track your kangaroo care sessions either with a timer or manually. At the end of each session, you'll encounter three optional screens:

  1. Reflect on your kangaroo care session. Viewed by the Team Leader.
  2. Identify the most helpful coach. Please ask the coach for their screen name for entry. Visible to the Team Leader and the selected coach.
  3. Participate in a kangaroo care study. Information provided will be de-identified and seen only by researchers.
