8 Useful Parenting iPhone Apps

Apple’s iPhone has taken the information age to a new level by offering users the ability to customize their phone with applications relevant to their lifestyle. While there are thousands of apps offered, the ones I love are the programs that benefit parents.

We have put together a list of applications that will keep your a bit more organized and informed.

Here are a few we like:

The Baby Namer – this free app is great for parents who are having a tough time deciding the perfect name for their baby. The baby namer

iPregnancy – This awesome app was created for expectant couples to stay current on what is happening in utero. Parents-to-be can look at 3D pictures relevant to their gestation , track their developmental progress and look for baby names. It is also a great app for dads-to-be to download so that they can feel connected to their unborn child.$2.99

Total Baby – Keep track of your baby’s schedule with this app. Track last diaper change, how long the baby has been sleeping, last time they ate and how much. Breast feeding moms can keep track of which side they used last and how long the baby fed for. This $4.99 app could possible replace a $60 unit that is marketed to do the same.
