Baby on the way? Consider these techy innovations.
What to Expect Pregnancy Clock Designed specifically for the Apple Watch, parentsto-be can track various aspects of their baby’s development—from visual growth milestones to weekly updates to actionable tips—down to the second, to further strengthen Mom’s intimate and personal connection with her growing child. Find more information (and other versions of the app that sync to your Android or iPhone) at whatto expect.com.
My Pregnancy Today This app covers all aspects of pregnancy. It features explanations for your body’s changes, a due date calculator, week-by-week development images of a growing fetus, and a super-helpful “Check List” tab that breaks down what Mommy should be doing each week to stay healthy and prepare for labor (including nutrition, exercise, and doctor’s office tips). Find it on Google Play or the App Store.

Learn what to avoid (and what to look for!) when shopping for items like sheets, lotions, and shampoos; find decorating tips, such as which paint colors might be best for your baby and how to arrange the nursery to promote sleep; and keep track of everything with a variety of checklists.
