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

BabyFirst Mobile’s Ranking
Get it from: iTunes
From the BabyFirstTV channel comes an app that lets your baby safely use the iPhone to watch educational – and age-appropriate – video content. These videos feature lovable characters like Bonnie Bear, a musical bear who shows baby common objects and the sounds they make, or Harry the Bunny, a funny rabbit who teaches baby new words. The app also features a child mode, which includes an easy-to-use navigation as well as a video player designed to prevent accidental interruptions (like when your baby accidentally touches the screen).
