Pregnancy: There's An App For That

Here is my most recent CBS News Eye On Parenting post about some choice pregnancy apps. I will most likely follow up with infant care apps when the time comes to test those out, which should be very soon! 

Meanwhile, what are your favorites? Post in the comment section if you are so inclined and one of the four of us will give them a try. Doesn't have to be mobile! It can be desktop or Web software. But no Excel please. Nathalee already has that area covered! :)

I just DL the free iPad app from Pampers called 'Hello Baby'.

The app has a feature that shows an image of a baby at the corresponding week of development.

You can enter in the babies expected due date and track the baby's size and weight at each week.

There's also a social networking link that alows you to share with your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

As new father of a 14 month old, and expecting a second come Feb, I like to try out new (preferably free) apps related to pregnancy, babies, parenting and health.

These are all tools that ultimately enable us to gain insight and hopefully key tips to this new responsibility called parenting.

I LOVE Total Baby . It is $4.99 for the full version, it lets you put in the last time you did things feed, bath, change type of thing, and you can set it to alarm if you are trying implement a schedule. It also lets you put in Dr. appts and things of that nature as well.

It helped me with my little guy was new to remember which side I had nursed him on last!

My fav iPhone app id iNeedMilk!
Its made for feed schedule, it's very simple but it works fantastic, especially for breastfeeding. It helps to not forget which boob will be on next feeding, control the schedules and hoe much time baby nurses. Seems odd that you could forget which boob to feed your baby? Well, it happens all the time lol. I've been using it since the beginning and my daughter is already 11 months old and I still use it. Oh, and it's free.

The Wonder Weeks is now in app for the iPhone and iPad. Picking up information from the internationally acclaimed bestselling book, The Wonder Weeks, and more than 35 years of international scientific research, this app will keep you informed about the (mental) leaps and bounds of your baby -- any time of day or night.

Think of it as a portable, at-a-glance version of the leap calendar in The Wonder Weeks. Where the book describes in-depth and easy-to-understand terms the incredible developmental changes that all babies go through, the app is the perfect companion element to track your baby’s mental development. It's also a handy reminder for new parents when their baby’s brain is changing, or “leaping,” s/he is making a significant advance in mental development, and with each step forward comes a drastic change in the way your baby sees the world around him. Because these leaps come so quickly, the “new world” and new abilities can sometimes be scary, and the development can initially manifest in poor sleep, bad appetite, crying, clinging and crankiness – exhausting and frustrating mom and dad.
By knowing what is going on inside the head of your baby, you can help him to make the leap more easily and stimulate his development. The Wonder Weeks app helps new parents by:
• Showing when your baby makes a leap in his mental development
• What your baby can understand & learn after this mental leap
• What your baby can do after this leap
• What you can do to help your baby

The Wonder Weeks iPhone app, originally created and released in The Netherlands, was an immediate success, and was recently named one tof the three best apps in iPhone and More magazine in the health & wellness category.

When I was pregnant, the first thing I asked myself was
"when does morning sickness begin?" Apparently, almost all mom's asks this question at some point during pregnancy since it's a very common condition. Wonder no more! Let me give you some answer to that question based on my experience and from some of the people I know.
