New 'Nanny App' could soon be every new parent's best friend

Wondering when you can give your new baby a bath? Or which is the safest sunscreen for her? Or how about how you can help if she's colicky? Well, your'e in luck because there's an app for that. It's called Nanny App and it was created by a nanny with over 14 years of experience. Nanny M sells herself as a modern day Mary Poppins and from the looks of her app, it seems she may be telling the truth.

Too bad I no longer need an app like this one, but I can see how it would be a great gift for moms- and dads-to-be. 


I think the hardest thing about being a new mom is having so many questions. Some are super simple and some more complicated. But the truth is that no matter how much other moms try to tell you how things are going to be, you really have to go through all them yourself to really understand what they're talking about.

The Nanny App has a ton of categories from the most common ones like feeding, sleeping, and bathing to travel and behavior and development. It also comes with a panic button you can use when you know something's not right, but you're not sure what's going on.

While I'm sure you could get some of the same information by doing a search on the Internet, I think it's super convenient to be able to have the answers to so many questions in just one app you can access via your smartphone--especially when you're a new mom who barely has time to eat. The app also allows you to send in an email with a question, which you get answered within 24 hours. And the best part is that the content is preloaded, which means that once you download the app you don't have to be connected to the Internet to get the answers you need.

And where do we leave our moms and other moms with experience? it may have all of the best intentions but it kind of cuts on going to other people for advice and taking it from an app.

I'm past the baby phase but I had to learn on my own or call Mami. Sometimes talking with other mothers helped, too, especially if we were going through similar situations.

I did refer to books or magazines sometimes as suggestions. Either way, there's a maternal instinct once a woman becomes a mother, that is better guidance than any app on the market.
