13 Apps For New MomsDanielle
New motherhood is crazy.
There are feedings, pediatrician appointments, record keeping for your little one, taking pictures — all the stuff that new moms want to do and often feel pressured to keep up with.
But now with the amazing technology we have today, iPhone apps make the process so much easier! Whether you need a calendar to keep your appointments straight, or Instagram to document your little one’s growth — there is an app for everything!
I put together a list of some of my favorites, and some of the readers’ favorites.
And if you have one that you really love or couldn’t live without, be sure to comment below and share for all the other moms out there who are looking for some help keeping motherhood organized!
Instagram 1 of 13Who doesn't love taking pictures of their baby?
I know that Instagram helps me a ton with not only taking the photos, but storing them.
Most new moms I know love it, and of course abuse it as well!

Evernote 2 of 13Can't type but you need to make a note, or remember something?
I know that happened to me a number of times caring for my daughter in the past couple months!
This is where Evernote comes in perfectly! You can record notes, phrases, or whatever and listen to it later on in the day.
You can also use Evernote as a notebook to record things like milestones before you can write them down in a baby book.
It is like a personal assistant inside your phone!

TMZ 4 of 13Who doesn't need their daily dose of celebrity gossip when you are busy taking care of your baby and can't get onto the computer?
I know I do... I am a sucker for celebrity gossip, but I am also way too bored when I am nursing, or trying not to move or wake a sleeping baby up.
Mommy can have some fun too!
