as the questin asks.
What app could you hot live with out, and why?
Whether it be for me to remember something, or to put baby to sleep?

The Wonder Weeks. Wouldn't have survived without it, there is a book but for the abridged convenient version the app is a life saver.

It's the result of 30 or something years research about the developmental stages from newborn to about 19 months. Typically during developmental 'leaps' your baby will become clingy, cranky, cry more and their sleep goes to the dogs.

Knowing a leap is upon you helps you move through it with your sanity in tact (somewhat) rather than thinking you've done something wrong.

I went to see a friend yesterday, only to arrive and find her in labour.

She was writing down the time each contraction ended, and trying to count how long they went for.

When I got home, i down loaded a contraction counter

Not a november mummy, but a July mummy (sorry for jumping in).  I highly recommend an app clad sound sleeper.  It's a free white noise app and my DS loves it.  If he wakes during the night 99% of the time all I have t do is put the sounds back on and he falls back to sleep

I used the EB app last pregnancy and it has a contraction timer which I used too. Worked well, showed me how long between contractions and how long each one went for. I also like the Children's Panadol app. ot has a breastfeeding tracker to keep track of what side and how long. I also used the 'baby soother' songs they have on it. I used to use them if we were out and she wouldn't settle.

It's called Children's Panadol bit not sure that's it's on android sorry. I would really recommend a feeding app of some kind. It makes it easier to keep track of.

My favourite app isn't really an app at all...though it is on my smart phone :)  It is a white noise program from http://baby2sleep.net and I couldn't live without it!

Unlike traditional white noise programs that are just, well, white noise, this one has a vibrational track that runs throughout that really works to calm my very unsettled twins.
