Let's Get Digital!

Being a new parent (or soon to be new parent) can be overwhelming at times, to say the least. Luckily, we live in a digital world these days, full of helpful technology to make the tough times a little easier. This week on the blog, we’re giving you the must-have apps that’ll help you with everything from tracking feeding and sleeping schedules to where to find the nearest playground, and more!

  1. My Medela

As their website says, this app “is like having a breastfeeding expert on call 24 hours a day,” and they aren’t kidding. This app allows you to track your pumping and breastfeeding schedule, as well as keep track of your baby’s stats like height and weight, as well as having answers to common questions answered by professionals! Oh, and did we mention it’s free?!

  1. Cloud Baby Monitor

So you’re on vacation. You’ve got all the essentials for your little one - diapers, changes of clothes, extra bottles, etc. You name it, you’ve packed it! Except, you forgot the baby monitor. Not to worry, Cloud Baby Monitor turns your apple devices into one! Keep one Apple device with your baby, and keep a watchful eye on him or her with another Apple device! So simple.

  1. What To Expect

Everyone’s heard of the famous book, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, and now they’ve got a mobile app to go along with it! This app will give you details about your child’s development all the way through pregnancy, with a personalized daily feed to guide you through this journey. They’ve also added a community photo sharing page, so you can connect with other parents that are in the same stage as you!

  1.  Spotify

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… I’m going to be spending the $9.99 a month on Spotify for the rest of my life! Really can’t say enough positive things about this music app. From soothing white noise playlists, to fun kids music that your little one can rock out to, this app has got something for every situation, and let’s face it - some days you really just need some good music!

  1. Mom Maps

If you’re a mom that’s always on the go, Mom Maps is something you need to download! This app shows you the closest kid-friendly spots based on your location. Everything from parks and playgrounds to restaurants and museums will pop up, so you can always find a rainy day activity!

  1. Chatbooks

Last but not least, we’ve got something to make it easy for you to keep your memories in one place! Chatbooks allows you to create quick and beautiful photo books from your instagram feed.
