New parents have plenty to worry about—but keeping track of everything baby related doesn’t have to be a concern. With the right smartphone apps, you can do everything from document your baby’s growth to connect with other parents—without spending a fortune. Here’s how!

First: Upgrade Your Device

These helpful apps won’t do you any good if your device is outdated. But you can save time and cash by shopping online for deals on the tech you want. Before paying full price for your next smartphone or tablet, check for online deals with special coupons, discount codes, and cash-back offers.

Second: Get the Right Plan

As a new parent, you’re going to rely on your smartphone more than you ever thought possible. From on-the-go entertainment to staying connected to tracking every detail of your baby’s development, it’s a vital tool.

But you’ll also need a data plan that won’t cost you overages when Wi-Fi isn’t available. A prepaid phone service might be the perfect solution—there are no overages involved, yet plenty of data for every upload and streaming entertainment session.

Third: Get These Apps

From documenting your baby’s every milestone and smile to soothing them to sleep or getting parenting advice, these are the apps you need:

Glow Baby

Glow Baby lets you track your child’s development and growth (including multiples) and delivers informational articles on every parenting topic imaginable. There’s a community section to help parents connect, too. Plus, as AppAdvice explains, Glow Baby supports Siri commands on your Apple device—so you can communicate and track information hands-free.

The Wonder Weeks

You can track your infant’s unique development and create personalized schedules with The Wonder Weeks app. From tracking milestones to learning about the ‘magical’ world of development leaps, the app guides you through your child’s phases and growth. Extra options in the app include an HD baby monitor function, audiobook format, a white noise feature, and diary content.

Mommy Saver: High Contrast Baby Visual Stimulation

Don’t let the long name fool you: This app is simpler and more usable than you might imagine. The Mommy Saver: High Contrast Baby Visual Stimulation app (available on Google Play) shows high-contrast pictures with movement, shapes, and a continuous play function to keep your baby entertained. As Ask Dr. Sears explains, large contrasts are ideal for newborns to look at as the stimulation helps their brains develop. The ad-free app also plays classical music (you can mute it, too) and has a range of stimulating animations.

Sleep Baby Sleep

Since many new parents struggle with getting their newborns to sleep, you may be willing to try anything to get a bit of extra rest. The good news is white noise can be effective, says DreamBabySleep, helping calm anxious little ones with womb-like sounds. Sleep Baby Sleep offers six different white noises, including fan, hairdryer, vacuum, water, womb sounds, and clothes dryer. You can stop and start the sounds or use a timer for auto-shutoff.

Safety Courtesy of Angi

Safety is a top priority for new parents, and this runs the gamut from appliances to flooring to windows and more. If safety modifications are necessary, you can easily connect with reputable contractors through the Angi app for repairs and improvements. For example, if you’re ready to make your backyard safer, a fence may be in order. With the app, you can find qualified and reputable contractors, as well as customer reviews.

With the right resources, you can support your baby’s development and ease your worries over what’s normal and what may not be. Plus, these apps are all free for your smartphone—making it easier than ever to enjoy being a new parent.

6 Week Old – What to Expect

6 Week Old – What to Expect

What’s It Like To Be Six Months Old?

I turn toward voices.

I reach for toys and pick them up.

I can hold an object in one hand and put it into the other hand.

I briefly look for a dropped toy.

I pick things up and I shake them.

I turn objects upside down to get another view of them.

I may roll over from my stomach to my back and from my back to

my stomach.

I play with my toes.

I may help hold my bottle.

I know my name.

I may play games with people I know.

I babble, squeal and repeat sounds.

I sit by leaning forward on my hands. I can sit with support.

I may be afraid of adults I don’t know.

I know the faces of the people who are around me a lot.

I may know what the tone of your voice means.

Each month, Healthy Start, Grow Smart will provide information about

how babies grow and develop. If you have immediate questions or

concerns about how your child is developing, call your baby’s doctor.

Guiding Your Active Baby

At the age of six months, your baby is more active than in past months. Because she gets around more, it’s a good idea to make your home safe for your baby. Put all cleaning supplies, medicines, poisons and sharp objects where your baby can’t get to them. Be sure that everyone who cares for your baby knows how to keep her safe.

Sometimes she will reach for things she shouldn’t. She may pull at your jewelry. She may try to eat a piece of paper. A baby this young does not need to be punished. She is exploring her world. You need to gently control what she does so she will be safe. She will also know that you are in charge. Be with your baby as she explores her world.

At this age, your baby is not doing things to upset you on purpose. She learns by trying new things. She doesn’t know the limits. She needs you to show her what is okay and what is not okay for her to She needs you to show her in a loving way.

Always check on your baby when she cries to be sure that she is okay. Never leave her alone. Always watch your baby’s activities. Praise her and hug her when she is doing things you like.

Let her know when she is doing something you don’t want her to do. If she starts to yank out an electrical cord, or if she spills out the contents of a purse, speak to her in a warm but firm voice. You don’t need to raise your voice. Gently take her hand away and give her a toy. Maybe she’ll be too close to the hot stove. Maybe she’ll try to grab something that could break. Gently pick her up and move her away from the thing she shouldn’t touch.

Your Baby’s Developing Brain

Each brain, like each child, is unique. Here are some findings by researchers that may help you with developing your baby’s brain:

Your baby may make sounds such as “ba,” “ma” and “ga.”

Sometimes parents think these sounds mean more than they do.

Wait. Soon your baby will attach a meaning to the sounds she

makes.

Talk to your baby often. This will help her learn to use sounds.

Being in a safe and loving place helps your baby to learn. Toys

bought in stores are not needed. Playing with pots and pans can be

just as much fun. Playing with simple things is just as good for your

baby’s development.

Praising your baby’s good behavior is good for both of you. Show

her that you like the way she is acting. This will help her do more

things you like.

When you take her to new places, your baby will want to reach for

new objects that she sees. She is not trying to misbehave. Plan

ahead and bring a favorite toy when you go out with her.

Games To Play with Your Six-Month-Old

A six-month-old is awake for much of the day, and she wants to play.

Here are some tips for having fun with your baby:

Play naming games with your baby. Point to her nose and say, “nose.”

Do the same with her eyes, hands and toys.

Play pat-a-cake with your baby.

Play pop-goes-the-weasel. When you reach the “pop,” raise your

baby’s arms in the air. Don’t jerk her arms or swing her by the arms.

Partly hide a toy under a blanket or piece of cloth. Let your baby grab

the toy and learn to pull the blanket off.

Put several empty plastic cups into a shoebox. The cups can be

different sizes. Reach into the box and take one cup out at a time. Pick

out another cup and do it again. After you do this a few times, your

baby will imitate you.

Put a large picture of yourself and dad near her crib or high chair.

When she says “mama” or “da-da,” point to the pictures. Say, “There’s

mommy” (or, “There’s daddy”).

Floor Time Is Playtime

Babies who are six months old need lots of floor time so they can learn to crawl and creep. If your baby doesn’t like being on the floor by herself, join her. Play on the floor with her. Here are two activities that you can do during floor time:

Put your baby in a sitting position. Support her with pillows. Roll a soft

ball to her and clap when she tries to roll it back.

Give your baby two plastic cups. Show her how to bang them together

or to bang them on the floor.

Safety Corner

Here are some tips to make sure your baby is safe from harm or

injury:

Never leave your baby alone in a high place, such as a tabletop, a

couch or a bed.

Don’t leave her in a crib with the sides down. She can hurt herself if

she falls.

Never drink, eat, prepare or carry hot things while holding your

baby.

Don’t smoke around your baby. Don’t allow others to do so.

Never give your baby any food or anything that could make her

choke. Only give her foods that have been mashed.

If you can, set the temperature of your hot water heater to 120

degrees or less. This will protect your baby from burns.

Never shake or hit your baby.

Never leave your baby alone with any pet. Even friendly pets can

harm a baby.

In the car…

Buckle your baby in a child seat in the back seat of your vehicle.

The child seat should face the back of your car, not the front.

Babies should never ride in the front seat of a car.

Never hold your baby in your lap while you are driving.

Never leave your baby alone in a car. Don’t do it even if the

windows are partly open.

In the crib…

Crib mattresses should fit the crib snugly. There should be no gaps between the mattress and the sides of the crib. Do not cover the mattress with plastic bags of any kind. The slats on the side of the crib should be 2 3/8 inches apart, or even closer. Keeping Your Home Safe

Here are things you can do to make your home safe for your baby:

Close the bathroom door.

Put gates across steps and stairs.

Cover unused electrical outlets. Use products that cover outlet

holes.

Keep cords from drapes and blinds and electrical cords out of your

baby’s reach.

Put baby locks on cabinets.

Protect your baby from furniture with sharp edges. You may be able

to move the furniture to another room. Or let her play in another

room.

Keep medicines where your baby can’t reach them.

Move cleaning products from under the sink. Put them where your

baby can’t reach them.

Keep small objects and balloons away from your baby.
