Whether it’s your first pregnancy or seventh, no babies are the same, and you’re always going to need a little extra help.
Thankfully there are plenty of apps and gadgets now which will not only be your best friend during the nine months of pregnancy but for the early stages of your baby’s life.
Take a look at this list to see what gadgets could make your life easier.
Studies have shown that babies can remember music that was played to them in the womb for up to a year, so why not treat your little one to some Bellybuds? These are headphones for your baby bump so that your baby can enjoy some tunes and you can create some memories? It’s not just music either, but with the Bellybuds you also can send loving messages to the new addition to the family. Compatible with the company’s VoiceShare app, it’s a way of connecting the baby with his or her family before they’re even born. Family can share messages, music, stories and playlists using the secure private network. There’s also an audio splitter so you or a loved one can listen to sounds and music simultaneously with your baby.
The World’s First and Only Wearable for Pregnancy, BloomLife continuously tracks information about the mother or the fetus over the course of months. BloomLife is worn with a strap around the belly; the electronics are housed in a little pod, which connects to a disposable patch worn on the abdomen. Women can wear the BloomLife all day, for a few hours to check in each night, or throughout the night, based on their own needs. However, it’s most useful in the final trimester as you can time your contractions like never before with Bloomlife and will be able to interpret better what’s going on in your body, from gas to early contractions to labour.
This pregnancy tracker app is designed to guide you day by day and week by week. If you put in your baby’s due date, then you can start tracking your baby’s growth. It also features personalized updates on your baby’s development, expert tips, helpful articles, and the latest parenting news.
Ewan The Dream Sheep Deluxe
Bedtime can be a tricky time for everyone, so anything to make this easier is usually welcomed.
Ewan the sheep is not only adorable, but he serves as a sleep aid for babies who fight sleep. He comes with four different white noises, a vacuum cleaner, harp, rain and the sound from the womb and he also has a pink glow light from his tummy.
Smart Sock Baby Monitor
The smart sock baby monitor is a sock that is placed on the baby, and it monitors the heart rate and oxygen levels just like they do in hospitals. It alerts you any time the child stops breathing via your smartphone or an alarm.
Baby Manager App
The Baby Manager app gives you peace of mind by keeping track of your little one and giving you timely reminders when you need them most. It is so useful having all your information logged in one place so that if you need to provide details to the doctor or mid-wife on nursing, breastfeeding, sleeping and nappy changes, then it’s all there. You can also sync data with your partner immediately, and the friendly charts help you understand your child and breastfeeding better, gaining insights into their trends.
