When you're a new parent, it's normal to wonder "is this normal?" several times a day and want to phone your pediatrician and ask. Pediatrician Dr. Jennifer Tractenberg is all too familiar with parents' endless concerns for their newborn, so she developed an app, Baby Bundle, as a way to be there for all her patients 24/7, at least virtually.
Baby Bundle not only offers parenting advice, it also tracks development, doctor's appointments and health information and has a built-in monitor. You can also upload photos of your child to the app, creating a virtual baby book and photo album. When you enter your child's height, weight and other information, the app pulls up national averages so you can see how your child compares to others.
Right now, the app is only available for iOS and parents can download it for free, although some add-ons range in cost from $2.99 to $6.99.
