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.

Introducing Your Nursing Companion

Breastfeeding can be complicated enough at the start. Did they latch? Football or cradle hold? Which side did they eat last? When did you eat last? Nipple confusion? How about mom confusion. Don’t stress. The Baby Nursing app tracks their latest feeding time, which side and for how long they ate, bottle feeding records, sleep and more. It logs all the information in handy dandy nursing history logs, which you can share with your doc (or whomever else cares to ask) and look like a total pro.

Available on, free.
