Top Baby Care Apps
My love for parenting and baby care apps all started when I was in the hospital with my third child. Nurses were continually coming into our hospital rooms asking, "Did the baby pee or poop?" Then the lactation specialist would come in and ask, "How long did your baby breastfeed for?" Are you kidding me? How was a sleep-deprived mom who just gave birth supposed to remember all of this information? Then a friend told me the good news: There are apps for all that.
Each of the apps on this list is designed to help you through your baby's first year, whether it's keeping track of feedings and diaper changes or providing educational entertainment to stimulate baby's senses. Did we miss an app that you love? Feel free to nominate it here! - Molly Thornberg, Digital Mom

The Baby Sleep Care Pro app acts as your eyes and ears while you and baby are sleeping. You can program the app to call a phone number, play music, or play a specific sound clip (that you record) whenever your child moves or makes a noise. This app is ideal for the baby who loves to sleep with music on – or the parent who wants to be alerted anytime baby wakes up.
