There's an app for just about everything- especially for parents! We've decided to list out a few of our faves for you to enjoy (in no particular order):
1. Sit or Squat
For those of you potty training, this is a great app to have on hand! Now with the push of a button you'll know where the closest washroom is and not only that- which one is the cleanest for your little muffin's bottom! Free for download on iTunes.ca- also compatible with BB and SMS Texting.
2. Potty Chart
Are you tracking your toddler's performance with paper charts? This app takes that to a whole new level with interactive charts and even a faucet that makes the noise of running water- encouraging your toddler to pee! I'm going to try this one on Sienna and I'll keep you posted on my progress. Available for download on iTunes.ca for $3.
3. Total Baby
I used this app when I was nursing Sienna and it was amazing! It helped me keep track of all her poops/pees as well as the feedings. It was very easy to use (even with one hand) and gave me something to do when I was rocking her to sleep in my lap.
Similar to Total Baby there's also 'BabyBrain'. Since new moms have a lot to handle and keeping track of poops and pees, as well as feedings can get challenging. Especially when you have to recall the info at your next doctor's appt. Make sure to download this app and let it do all the work for you. Available for download on iTunes for $3.
5. Mom Maps
This is another awesome app that helps you find kid activities in and around your area! How awesome is this? So instead of being cooped up at home- get outside and treat your kid to some fun activities close by! It's also free for download on iTunes.
Ever said to yourself- oh I wish I wrote that milestone down? When did Sienna do that again? Don't miss another first word, first time on the slide etc.. again. OurKids lets you document the date of a milestone as well as take a picture of it for memory. Neat concept- try it out for $3.99 on iTunes.
7. Baby Travel
Thinking of Traveling with the Wee one? Use this nifty little app to help you generate your packing list! It asks you a series of questions which then determine what you need to pack for your baby/toddler as well as the suggested quantity of each item. So don't stress- download this free app and give it a try!
If you have any other suggestions or comments about the apps above- please let us know by leaving a comment below. We'd love to hear from you!

The Baby Time Show will be held April 15-17th @ the International Centre in Toronto. It's a great place to go with your little one, as there are a lot of free samples to enjoy and also great deals to be had. Even though it's quite busy inside, make sure you bring your stroller as it's a great way to carry not just your baby- but also the huge bag you'll get to hold all your samples/shopping. Enjoy the show!
