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

For those times when you just need to keep your child entertained, Peek-a-Boo Baby Rattle is the app for you. Each time baby shakes or touches the iPhone, a flash card of an animal pops up on the screen and makes real animal noises. There are 10 different animals featured, including a dog, mouse, pig, and parrot. While basic, the app is sure to keep baby amused.
