There are a number of baby orientated Apps out there and we wanted to finish this blog with a few of our favourites.

Ask The Midwife

If you are worried about your little one this app can provide some reassurance. Users pay to interact with a professional midwife either by text message or video chat. It’s not cheap, but a potential alternative to late-night visits to the GP or hospital.


Your baby is precious. You want to make informed decisions not guesses. BabyTime helps you track the essentials, spot trends and settle into good routines. It’s quick and it’s easy. And it’s been lovingly made by parents for parents.

Baby Monitor 3G

This app lets you use two devices (phones, tablets etc) and create your own video baby monitor. Hear every noise, stream live video, and soothe your child remotely. Works with an unlimited reach (WIFI, 3G, LTE) and is trusted by more than a million moms and dads.
