With so much criticism around social media, and the fact that privacy can be a grey area, as a parent you may not want to share pictures of your little one online.
Many celebrities and bloggers currently blank out their children's faces in online snaps as a way of protecting their identity. And whilst we can get onboard this idea thanks to the many emojis available to us, we also still want to share precious pictures of our tots with family and friends around the world.
So with this in mind we’ve revealed the apps that you can use to share pictures of your baby with only a specially selected few. Not only helping you to limit your time on social media, and reduce the new baby spam, but also helping you to keep your private life - private.
After all, sometimes we just want to keep things feeling special for as long as possible.
Invented by photography brand Canon, Lifecake is a journal of your babies life.
You simply take pictures and upload them into the app, then if you want to share updates with your friends and family, you can invite them to the app via email. Not only does this allow them to also upload pictures of the little one, but allows them to comment and like all the pictures.
It’s ideal as a memory making app, as even when your tot is having sleepovers at Grandma’s or Aunties, they can upload pictures of what they’ve been up to - great if you’ve got guilt for leaving them behind while you have a weekend away!
The photo sharing app Tinybeans was invented by an australian family that wanted to be able to share pictures of their children growing up with other family members around the world - without having to bombard social media.
With this in mind, the app is very similar to Lifecake, except that there is the option to print out photos and save them to your own photo album.
As with Lifecake, you can upload pictures of your children, and then invite loved ones via email to see the album and contribute.
For many families that live countries apart, this app brings a huge amount of joy to relatives as they can feel involved in the child’s life and see what they’ve been up to.
It seems that everyone is thinking about ways of keep things private, as 23Snaps was created specifically for sharing photos of little ones with selected friends and family.
With a more minimalist interface, the beauty of 23Snaps is that it can be accessed both on your mobile via the app and on your desktop device. Something which cannot be done with the other apps.
Another great advantage of 23Snaps is that pictures can be grouped together so that you can create albums around special events, such as birthdays or days out.
As with the other apps, you invite selected friends and family via email to be able to access the albums and they can then comment on the pictures.
If you’ve got a few ‘techno-phobes’ in the family, then relatives can also be kept up to date via email. So they can choose how to be updated when a new picture of your tot has been uploaded.

Therefore, if you’ve been trying to think of some new ways to remember your little one’s arrival into the world, we’ve shared a handful of the keepsakes which are revered around the world.
