Infant sleep lab app logo

Infant Sleeplab

This app is full of up-to-date research evidence about biologically normal sleep for babies. It is project of the Durham University Parent-Infant Sleep Lab, one of only two places in the world that researches this field.

There’s lots of information on; how babies sleep, where babies sleep, sleep health & safety, co-sleeping etc. All of it backed up by research and a proficient understanding of human sleep and anthropology.

If you really want to understand the realities of normal infant sleep without the ignorant and misguided advice that all parents are bombarded with, then this is a must have app!

Dunstan Baby Ears

The app for Dunstan Baby Language. We have covered this in more detail in this post. This is great practice in helping to tune your ears, we found ourselves quizzing each other when hearing cries, even before we were parents!

The Wonder Weeks

The Wonder Weeks

Awesome app to accompany an awesome book (see above). We loved the simplicity of referencing our little ones progress using this app, type in the due date (not birth date) and it will tell you how many days remain until the beginning of the next leap or end of current leap. If you like the book, this will provide a quick look/guide to always have in your pocket.

Pregnancy Smiles

We really loved this app and it became a part of our weekly routine throughout our pregnancy. It shows the progress of throughout the pregnancy, including the amazing illustrations. The app appears to have added a lot more to it since we used it which can only be a good thing, based upon the info we gained, Awesome! I am aware this app is aimed at the american market so do beware! There’s is also this free version.

Firstly we have not personally tried this app! However we felt it prudent to give an alternative to the above and this one is targeted at the british market; this one is NHS choices approved.
