I was at a friend’s house earlier this week. This friend is a new mum to a beautiful almost 6 month old baby girl.
My friend is also really busy as she has just bought a business and what with that and all the mum stuff it’s a bit hectic.
While I was there we were talking about immunisations which reminded her to check when the baby’s next lot were due. Lucky she checked, they were due in two days time, so it was a mad panic to rearrange people and things to accommodate this.
If she had the new Bupa Family Moments App, it would have alerted her to the upcoming needle appointment sooner. The app, from insurer Bupa was only just released this week – as if my friend’s mad panic sent a wish out into the universe and wham! there’s now an app for that!
But it doesn’t just take care of remembering immunisation appointments for you. You can also use it as a reference tool to check all those parenting questions. Like, how many hours, ideally, should my toddler be sleeping, and what, ideally, should my preschooler be eating. I’ll give you a clue, the answer to the first one is much more than she is and the second one is not nutella sandwiches with no crusts.
You can also chart your little one’s growth, just like they do in the health nurse books, but much prettier.
You can add photos and notes to capture precious moments too.
Then you can share this info with your selected elite group of family and friends or you can share it with the world on Facebook.
Best thing? the app is FREE.
If you are a Bupa member you can also have a time lapse photography thingo which is pretty cool! If you are not a Bupa member, you can pay $4.49 and add it on. It’s pretty nifty! I so wish I had this five years ago! I saw this thing on Pinterest once where these people had taken a photo of their baby sitting in the same chair from day one to about age five. AMAZING. I would totally do that with this app. It would be easy peasy and totally awesome. Maybe I should have another baby… (bahahahahaha)
Because I haven’t had the app since Millar was born, we did a quick vid of about 5 photos to show the Time Cam app in action. Obviously this would be way more awesome if you took a photo of your baby almost every day from birth to age two. How cool would that be?
You can WIN this iPod Touch. Or actually, one exactly like it in the gorgeous blue that matches my son’s top.
