The Apps Every New Mum Needs

Being a new mum is stressful, overwhelming and emotional. While of course it’s exciting and you’re full of love, there are no doubt going to be times where you question your sanity. 


Thankfully, some smart people out there have created apps for almost every situation. So whether you’re sleep-deprived and wondering if your baby will ever allow you a peaceful night, or questioning feeding time, we’ve rounded up the ultimate apps every new mum needs. 


Baby Soother 


Sleep is a cherished novelty as a parent, and it seems to disappear when your little one arrives. 


If you’ve tried all friend recommendations and everything under the sun, the next app we suggest is Baby Soother.


With intelligent science behind the app, Baby Soother provides a library of noises to fill the silence of your newborn’s room. From ocean waves to Brahm’s lullaby, you can find a sound that will soothe your baby to sleep. 


NCT Baby change 


Exploding nappies are a common occurrence in motherhood, and they often happen at the most inconvenient times. But rather than panic about where you can change your baby download the NCT baby change app. 


The app uses your location to find the nearest baby changing facility. Phew, panic, averted! 


The Night Feed App


Feeling all alone during those night feeds? - This app is there for you. 


Created by blogger and mother Ruth Crilly, The Night Feed App not only allows you to track those late-night feeds but also provides exclusive Q&As with midwives and talks from experts. 


Dubbed as the ‘sanctuary for the sleep-deprived’, the app aims to make mothers feel less alone during those long sleepless nights and provide some support. 


Peanut


How do you make new friends as a mum? - Especially if you’re the first of your friends to have a baby? 

 

Well don’t fear new motherhood, Peanut app is here to help you connect with other like-minded ladies who have also just become mums. 


Coined as the ‘tinder for new mums’, the friendship app aims to help women connect who have just become new mothers. 


Rather than a forum, where everything is online, Peanut helps you to find friends locally so you can meet up for coffee and cake, and find a friend who can relate to your dribble chic clothing without judging you. 


Baby Spark


Pre-baby there’s so much prep and education. How to give birth, how to change a nappy, but there’s nothing about what you should be doing with them once they arrive! 


If you often feel totally out of your depth about what you should be doing with your baby, the Baby Spark app is here to save your sanity. 


Baby spark gives you daily activity suggestions designed for your baby’s age and stage to support their development. So no more panicking about what to do, pick an activity and have some fun together.
