Newborn baby? There’s an app for that. Rather, there are tons of apps that all supposedly help new parents adjust to their new lives. A quick search on the Apple App store yields over 300 results! Everything from sleeping soothers, to breast milk trackers, to feeding journals, to baby monitors, and visual stimulators are on there– but which ones are the best? And what do they all do? Do any of them actually help? You could read app reviews, but they can be pretty hit and miss. Luckily, the awesome folks at Cool Mom Tech have done the work for you and compiled a list of newborn apps that are absolutely essential:
Total Baby is a fantastic and very comprehensive app that lets you track everything you want to know when you’re in the throes of newborn-dom; 14 trackers to be specific, including diapers, nursing, pumping, bottles, solids, sleeping and more.
Baby Tracker Nursing app
If you don’t need 14 trackers for your little one and instead want to just focus on nursing, check out this simple, nursing-specific app for everything you’ll need for your baby’s feeding schedule.
Maybe you’d rather save that $4.99 and instead put it towards your next box of diapers.In that case, the free iBabyLog is a good tracking alternative.
