Technology has become a really useful, and in some cases essential tool in our day to day lives. However, with so much out there it can be difficult to find apps that are reliable, easy to use and also are good value for money. We have trawled the app store and here are our Top 5 baby related apps which can help in many different ways from breastfeeding to baby changing.
1. Breast Feeding Friend for iPhone and Breast-feeding for Android
Both of these apps are free and are designed to be super easy to use in order for you to keep track of when you've fed your baby.

The activity log is also an incredibly helpful feature, allowing you to check how often your baby wakes up and discovering sleep patterns.
