Before your new bundle arrives, or in the early days, update your phone with a host of new baby apps that will help you survive the newborn stage. From sound machines that’ll help you get a few more moments of sleep to an app that’ll be your social network, your photo library, and even your calendar—all rolled into one. 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.

Track Baby’s Every Move

Sprout Baby is a do everything baby app. Not only will it keep you posted on the latest developmental feats your baby should be going through at every stage, but also it lets you track your baby's specific milestones with photos and journal entries and track everything from feedings to growth. You can also track health records and generate a report to share with your doctor during visits.

Available on iTunes.com, free.
