Momming: There’s an app for that!

Our phones can be more than just IG likes and text messages. When it came to baby making, baby baking and baby building my phone became a resource and a big help.

Planning

Screen Shot 2019-04-25 at 11.59.22 AMI was fortunate enough to conceive on the first try but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t prepared. I was tracking ovulation and my body like clockwork using an app called Glow. It’s great for all pregnancy planning routes, including fertility treatments and fertility preservation.

Pregnancy

IMG_CB11C943C808-1When it came to actually being pregnant I was completely clueless. I had no idea whether or not the babe was an avocado or a kiwi fruit, I didn’t know what changes my body were going through when and despite how simple it seems, I never really knew when the new trimesters started. Pregnancy + app really helped me understand when and what I could expect at my next doctor’s appointments. It gave tips and had blog posts from a community of experts and even had a really cute baby that would grow as time went on. I would check it weekly and really felt informed by it.

Baby Tracking

IMG_9CD16D2CF4B7-1To be honest, I NEVER thought I would be one to track baby poops unless I ABSOLUTELY had to and yet here we are, me, writing about my favorite poop tracking app with no real reason to do so other than, I just like to know. My favorite thing about the Glow Baby: Newborn Tracker Log is that it can have multiple caretakers. My husband and I can both easily track diaper changes and feedings on the same list conveniently from our phones. I can’t count how many times i’ve seen paper logs that look exhausting, stressful and always written in one handwriting (moms). This is perfect for coparenting and can be fun too!
