Apps – New Mom & Baby

Technology is such a wonderful thing, and I have already told you what my favourite pregnancy related apps are.

When it comes to a new born baby, there are so many things to keep in mind. how much they eat, sleep, play; their milestones; their growth and so on and so forth.

And thanks to the developments in tech, we can have most of that info in the palm of our hands. Here are my favorite baby related apps:
Yes, they are free too!



BABY DAY BOOK:

This is absolutely fantastic; especially during the first few months. It allows you to track a number of things including feeding times – breast fed or bottle. It even allows you to track which breast you fed from each time. This is essential information that can help in the beginning when you are trying to regulate your supply. The other options that has helped me enormously is the ‘diaper change’ column. That allows you to track your baby’s bowel movements, and can help you keep a track of how often you change the nappy.

The medication tab, as well as the other activities tab are also extremely helpful. At least during the initial days, it helps to know when baby went out, and when you cut his nails etc.

As baby grows and starts solids, formula or other drinks, you can track that too. Yes to the amount of tummy time and playtime baby gets too. And in case, he is unwell, and running a temperature, you can use this app to compile a definitive record of all things related to your baby.

The one option that I use continuously even now is the growth tabulations. I can enter his weight, height and head circumference, and keep a track of how my baby is growing. You can then view it in the percentiles chart, thus giving you a clear one chart look at how much your baby has grown.

Baby Day Book is a must have for new parents!

TINYBEANS:

I absolutely adore this app. And more than me, our families adore it. It is a must have for those who don’t have their families nearby. Through this app, you get a scrapbook and journal of sorts – which is private – and which can be shared with your near and dear ones. You need to add the people in order for them to access it, and even then you can control what they see, and what they can do.

My baby’s uncles, aunts and grandparents cannot see his grow up everyday as they are far away but this app allows them to see his pictures and videos on a daily basis.

Most importantly, this is our memory book. Every day, a little moment captured – video and pictures. The story of our growing child. On occasions when I miss him, I open this app and look through all of his old photos and videos.

The best part is that it can be viewed on the phone, and on the computer too. And as such, if the person doesn’t want to download the app on the phone, it is fine. And each person can choose how they want to receive the updates – push to phone or via email – and how often they want to get it.

I also like the ‘cards’ section, where they provide educational information – usually based on your child’s age, and the milestones section, where you can track their developmental growth.

And if you have more than one child, you can add their details too.

Go on, check this out! You will not regret it.

BABY NIGHT LIGHT:

If you prefer to keep the room dark, but not pitch black, this is great. It will give you a nice but not very bright light, which can give a glow to the room.

But for me, the primary use of this app is the noise. I use this for the white noise options that it has. My favorite is the sea noise, but there are many others you can choose from including English, French and Japanese lullabies and the nature and Zen tunes.

The ‘sea’ white noise really helps my lil one settle down at night. I also like the heavy rains.

And if you are using the free version, don’t forget to open daily to get the free gift.

FLIPPY:

Now this isn’t really baby related but it is a lot of fun to have baby star in famous clips. A laugh riot indeed! It is a perfect tool to get a laugh out of everyone around you. Music videos, movie scenes, the whole lot depending on your mood.

And there are practice sessions too, to get the sync just right!

Special mention – HiMAMA

Now this is one for babies in the nursery or day care. It is managed and updated by the nursery and they can give you access. I love this because I get daily updates – photos and videos – from my baby’s nursery. It also allows for effective and easy communication between the parents and the nursery.

And using this app, the nursery can send you a detailed report everyday with various information including naptimes, feedings, nappy changes, and other activities.

I, for one, am thrilled that my baby’s nursery uses this.

  • These apps are amazing. I wish I had them when my son was first born. They sure would have come in handy.

  • Oh, I wish I had something like the Baby Day Book during all my years of nursing. Apparently, 2 boobs are too many for me to keep track of. It used to drive me crazy!

  • These are such interesting apps! I wish I had these apps when I first became a mom. Thanks for sharing!

    Baby Day Book looks like it would be super helpful when you have a brand new baby! There is so much to remember!

    • yup.. it really is nice to have something to note down every little thing 🙂

  • I used so many apps when my little one was first born. I have never heard of the TinyBeans app. It sounds like something that would be super useful to us, as much of our family lives in another city.

  • The Tinybeans app looks so cool! I like the idea of being able to share pictures in a more private, intimate social media site other than facebook. This is a great list!

  • I’m not much into apps of any kind, but these seem really neat. I especially like the ones where caregivers can keep track of their naps, eating, diaper changes, etc. Very handy if you are a working parent! As for the first one, it can be so hard remembering which boob you fed from last in the beginning. How handy! Tinybeans sounds like a great option for people who do not want to share pictures of their kids on social media.

    • yup. I am truly grateful for the Himama app, so I know what he does at nursery.
      Technology is pretty cool 😀

  • Wow, how have I never heard of these apps before? I’m going to download the baby night light app now. They all sound really great.

    • Baby Night Light is awesome. My fave white noise is the sea 🙂

  • These all seem like really good apps. I especially like the one where you can share photos/videos with long-distance family members. I’m going to have to check that one out so that my little one’s grandparents and aunts and uncles can see him every day also!

    • Tinybeans has been an amazing app to share updates regularly – sometimes 5-6 a day – with the family. My boys grandparenst and uncles and aunts love it.

    We use Tweekaboo to document pictures for our kids! I like Tiny Beans as well! Great list of apps for new moms!

    • Tweakaboo sounds interesting. I am gonna check it out right away!

  • This is awesome! I’m off to download Baby Day Book now! It sounds very helpful, especially lately when she doesn’t want to nurse as often and I start to worry that she isn’t getting enough. I’ll probably download Flippy as well, haha ?

    • Baby Day Book is a life saver. One year down the lane I am still using it. For now, I am only focussing on the weight gain. But in the initial days, it was amaazing to record everything.

  • I love baby apps. I was wondering if there were any good ones after the pregnancy ones.
    My personal favorite is The Wonder Weeks, but it looks like some of these are gonna give it a run for its money!
    I’ll check them out!

    • The Wonder Weeks is awesome. I didnt have that on this list since it isnt free 😛
