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

Who needs a sound machine when you have an iPhone? iPacifier includes seven tracks of calming sounds to help soothe your baby to sleep. The sounds will play continuously – though you should keep your phone plugged in if you need it to play overnight. There’s also a timer feature that allows you to play the sounds for a set period of time to help save your battery life as well. Here’s to hoping this app will give your baby sweet dreams – and everyone a good night’s rest.
