First off, let me take this moment to congratulate all of you who are already navigating to the world of new parenthood. I believe parents have their own distinct ways of taking care of their young. After all, they would do anything just to keep their little ones safe and nurtured. But, admit or not, we need to learn more on how to take care of our family. It is not something we know instantly.
Although we can base it on our experiences, donât be a jack of all trades or like a know-it-all on handling things new to you-more especially if you and your partner are talking about a new life here. And so, like a cell phone cover that is responsible for taking care of oneâs phone, check out these apps that deal with health or tracking listed below:
#1: Eat Sleep: Simple Baby Tracking
From what the name of this app implies, it basically tracks your babyâs eating, sleeping, and diaper habits to save you from the mess of timers, alarms, and whatnots. You can also track on when you nursed your young and which side of your breasts was used to breastfeed your baby, and also track the amount of formula or pumped breast milk your little one has consumed. Why do we need to track the diaper habits, you ask? Well, if itâs your first time to become a mom, keeping tabs on diaper changes and whether diapers are wet, dirty or both is crucial to be able for you to know if your infants are eating enough.
