Are you overwhelmed by technology Mama?
Don’t worry! I’ve got ya! I am not only a know it all in the world of Denver Baby Photography, but I am a mama too! So, sit back and check out a few of my favorite apps to help take some of your stress away and organize your life!
1- Baby Sleep Sounds : Shusher App
First off, this one is free Mama! Designed by practicing somnologists and sound engineers. It comes with 100 different relaxing sounds in 6 categories. A fade out melody and timer promotes healthy sleep for baby, you can schedule sleep and count hours to better track babies sleep patterns. This app can even shush your little one back to sleep during the night when they wake up! You simply set up a program and this app takes care of the rest!
2- Today’s Parent My Family
I like to call this one a jack of all trades! It does everything. Starting during pregnancy you can personalize your content based on your due date or the age of your child. You can even track multiple children. Pretty cool right?!?! This app has trackers that help you record sleep, breastfeeding and bottle feeding. Struggling with finding a baby name? Look no further this app can help with its amazing Baby Namer tool. When it is time for potty training check out the potty training tool here- I used this for my kiddos and it made my life so much easier. The baby photographer in me loves that this app has storybooks where you can collect and store all of your family moments using your photos and videos. It lets you add quotes and share with friends and family. I could seriously go on and on about this one, but you should just go check it out for yourself!
3- Total Baby
This super popular app lets you track all things baby. It has 14 separate timing and tracking functions all in one slick app. You can track diapers, nursing, pumping, bottles, sleeping, and baths. Not to mention doctor visits, growth progress, vaccines and allergies! I wish this existed when my kids were babies. I remember having so many different note books and having to remember where I put what so that I could track and record what I needed to. Needless to say it was a hot mess. You can track multiple kiddos and invite and share this with other family members. I love that it is a one stop shop. Easy peasy am I right?
4- Sit or squat
Yes you read that right. This app made by Charmin helps you locate clean pottys. You can find search for a public restroom near your current location or where you are planning to travel. People can rate the restrooms so you know in advance where the clean bathrooms are! It even has a sort feature where you can choose specific filters like, rating, if it has a changing table, is handicap accessible and many others. This is a life saver as far as I am concerned. Even for us grown ups, but especially when traveling with young kids and babies!
5 – Baby Sticker – Track Milestones
I saved my favorite for last. Of course it is related to denver baby photography, well any photography in general really – it is a FREE photo editor! It lets you not only capture any and all milestones and moments. It also lets you decorate them with handcrafted artwork. You can even personalize them with special fonts.
