Once baby has arrived, you need to start tracking diapers, feedings, sleep, and a ton of important data. Baby Connect for iPad (Activity Logger) by Seacloud Software is an amazing iPad app. All the data is stored on the internet so multiple people can have access to the data. I’m able to wake up in the morning and check when my son was last fed and figure out if he needs a bottle. It’s also great for when your pediatrician asks you questions about your baby.

The womb is a noisy place and the real world is relatively quiet for newborns. Giving newborns a little white noise can really help them to sleep. We love this app, White Noise by TMSOFT.
