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

Sleepy Zoo’s Ranking
- #3 Baby Sleep
Get it from: iTunes
The Sleepy Zoo app acts as your child’s sleepy-time companion with soothing sounds and a cute zoo character of baby’s choosing: Wise Owl, Happy Hippo, Gemma Giraffe, Percy the Penguin, and Clarence Cow. You can choose from one of several calming audio clips and determine how long you would like the sound to play (between two and 20 minutes). It’s like the modern-day teddy bear!
