Before your baby arrives, or in the early days, update your phone with a host of new apps that will help you survive the newborn stage. From sound machines that’ll help you get a few more moments of sleep to tracking apps that’ll help you log everything from feedings to milestones. We tapped and tested an army of apps to find the best tools that will help make life a bit easier for those that just welcomed a wee one.

Up Your Photo Game

You take dozens of photos daily, or maybe even hourly, and for those priceless keepers, giving them a quick edit will make them even better. Snapseed is an easy-to-use photo editor even for not so savvy users. Quick swipes can adjust brightness, contrast, color and more. This app can also rescue any money shots that just happened to be taken in bad lighting.

Available on iTunes.com, free; and play.google.com, free.
