When a newborn baby is delivered into the world, the moment focuses as it rightly should, on the mother. It is the mother who embraced the challenge of pregnancy and risked her life in childbirth. It is the mom who nurtures the child.
But behind every struggling mother is an increasingly frazzled dad, who’s trying his best to help and provide for the two. Fortunately, tech entrepreneurs have not forgotten about dads out there. Here are five apps that will make their lives easier.
Contraction Monitor Free
Bearing the baby will never be the dad’s duty, but he can help everywhere else. Contraction Monitor Free helps dads record the mother’s contractions and determine if it’s time to bring her and the baby to the hospital.
Quick Tips for New Dads
Unlike motherhood, #FatherhoodProblems are rarely discussed. When the baby pukes, many dads don’t know what to do. Enter Quick Tips for New Dads. Filled with punchy tips made by dads and for dads, it’s great for any baby-related emergency. The app also enables users to ask questions and provide tips for others.
Sometimes, short tips aren’t enough. Dads need more scientific information, which WebMD Baby offers. It features a vast library of medically approved content that are designed to help parents. For dads that can’t bear the literature, the app provides videos featuring pediatricians giving reliable advice.
Sleep is hard to come by when the baby is constantly crying. Baby Shusher helps parents get a good night’s rest by engaging the baby’s natural calming reflex by playing sounds that remind them of the womb. The app can monitor baby’s sleep and play the noise when it hears that baby’s awake. Once baby is used to dad’s or mom’s singing voice, parents can replace the app’s sounds with their own.
Baby Monitor 3G
Dads are meant to keep an eye on the kids to help them in case of emergencies. Baby Monitor 3G helps dads do their duty. The app enables a smartphone, tablet, or computer to video the baby and send the livestream to other smartphones, tablets, or computers.
