A lot of moms swear by The Wonder Weeks. Some even say it’s like a “horoscope for babies.” When the tough times and sleepless nights come into play (thanks to the periods of change or increased fussiness), The Wonder Weeks app allows parents to better understand their baby’s mental development.

4. BabySparks

During the first year of a baby’s life, his or her brain creates more than a million new neural connections every second. Because of this, BabySparks was designed to share expert-created, customized daily play programs. The app offers a variety of development activities and milestones that parents can track.

5. Sleepiest

Sleepiest helps both you and your baby fall asleep thanks to the selection of bedtime stories and meditations. It even has white noise options that help soothe a newborn baby.

6. Feed Safe

If you’re a breastfeeding mother who fancies a glass of wine every now and then, this clever app helps you calculate the time until there is no alcohol in your breastmilk. It was designed by the Australian Breastfeeding Association in collaboration with researchers from Curtin University. All you have to do is enter when you had your first drink. The app then lets you know when you’re ready for a feed.
