Remember those first few hours and days after bringing your firstborn home? Elation and terror are two of the many emotions that come to mind. It was a magical time, but one that prompted a lot of questions. A lot.
Rather than rely on books like I did in my heyday, new parents can now turn to their mobile devices for new parent advice.
An app called Baby’s Home…What Now? addresses many of the plaguing questions that crop up during the newborn phase with eight video chapters (67 minutes total) on everything from surviving the first days, nursing, coping with sleepless nights (don’t miss those!), post-baby hormones (don’t miss those either!) and more. It’s a complementary app to the eponymous Baby’s Home… DVD and features the same content, only now in mobile form.
The videos load quickly and are high quality, and although this app is probably only helpful for parents who are having their first child, it’s nice to have expert advice on the go. Plus, it’s perfect for those middle-of-the-night feedings–no additional reading light required. -Jeana
