For a new mother juggling a bundle of joy, house errands, and official calls of duty, obviously, it becomes a little difficult to manage all the chores. It is not possible to complete everything by yourself and occasionally a little help can go a long way. With technological advancements trickling into almost all facets of our life, one thing you can do is use your phone to assist you with your maternity leave.
Here we have some useful apps that you should definitely take a look at during your early days of motherhood:
Glow Nature is a dazzling and data-driven pregnancy tracker for pregnant users to embrace pregnancy, maternity, and the expecting baby bump! This is a next-generation app for the new mom-to-be, allowing her to track her health and her baby’s growth, track her weight, nutritional intake, and moods (and even get alerts and assistance from the experts), keep track of all of those upcoming doctor’s appointments, and swap information and share articles with other members of the community. Quite a fun social app for preggos!
Plus, there’s a feature available by which your partner can view all of this information so he/she can follow your pregnancy journey along with you.

White Noise Baby helps your child sleep by blocking interruptions and reducing stress. When you are out in public, and a situation arises where you need to quiet the baby, this app is of great help. It also includes a baby rattle that has complex shapes and fun sounds to keep your baby entertained.
You obviously don’t want your baby to be underfed or overfed. Want an expert to keep a check on your baby’s feedings? There’s an app for that—and it’s free.

You can combine milk from several pumping sessions or pour milk from one bottle into multiple bottles and freezer bags.
A distinctive feature of the app is where you can set an expiration period for each storage location, track the expiration time of each bottle/bag in your stash, which is very useful to track the time, and use the oldest preferable milk first.
