It often takes a village to raise a baby. If you don’t have access to a bunch of people willing to take care of your kid, you can find help in technology. Today, there are many apps made for parents, but which ones are actually useful? According to other moms, here are a few apps that will make your life easier every day:
Tracking app for baby
While you’re still in the hospital with your new baby, you probably have time to write down all feeding times. But as soon as you come home, you’ll notice that pen and paper are not very practical. Plus, you’ll discover many other things you need to track besides feeding. Luckily, with apps like BabyConnect, you can keep track of all feeding schedules, baby naps, diaper changes, activities with your little one, etc. This app also allows you to mark down any important milestones. Basically, you’ll have access to all important data with just a glance. At the end of the day, you can see statistics and compare them to the past data so watch your little one grow and develop. It’s also possible to share data with other users, so your partner, grandparents and nannies can also be up-to-date with the latest happenings.
App for baby entertainment
To promote proper development, you need to keep your child entertained. But figuring out how to do that is not easy. Luckily, with apps like Baby Sparks, you can engage in healthy and meaningful play with your baby. The app provides you with a daily customized program with all activities you can try with your kids to encourage development and growing a strong bond with parents. The activities you can try with your kid foster gross motor skills, fine motor skills, cognitive development, sensory development, etc.
Mommy social media
In some cases, motherhood can be lonely. Kids are your greatest source of joy but what do you do when they are asleep and you have no more chores to address? You hop on the interesting Mumli motherhood app and connect with like-minded women! This app allows you to share and learn with other moms who are in your stage of motherhood and get access to carefully-curated content you’re interested in. You can also save everything you find useful on the app and store it in one easy-to-access place. Mumli will give you company and a world of new information on parenting.
If you have older kids, it’s time for them to learn responsibility by helping you with chores around the house. With EarnIt!, your kids can earn points by doing chores and get rewards when they reach a milestone. This app will instil good habits in your kids, get them excited to do chores and teach them how to become useful members of the household. The rewards are set by you, so you can go as little or as big as you want with them.
Screen and internet safety
Today, the easiest way to entertain your kids is to give them a tablet or smartphone and let them entertain themselves. This method has many flaws, but one of the most dangerous ones is internet safety. But with a variety of screen-time parental control apps out there, you’ll manage to block dangerous content. It also allows you to pause apps while your kids are at school or doing homework, so you can control what your kids see and when they see it.
Most moms have thousands of photos on their phones. When trying to snap a good photo of your gorgeous nugget, you usually take at least 10 photos to get the one—the rest end up cluttering your phone. Thanks to apps like Gemini, you’ll get good photo recommendations and the option to mass-delete failed shots.
With technology by your side, every mom can become a super mom. You will not only ensure your kids’ safety, but also keep your household entertained, healthy and full of love.
