If you've got a new baby at home, a night of uninterrupted sleep is probably something you've been missing big time. Unfortunately for parents, your new little bundle of joy has no idea that a 4:00 a.m. feeding can be pretty painful for their caregivers, especially if they are also juggling work and caring for other children between feedings. Thankfully, there are tech geniuses out there who totally feel your pain, and have developed some pretty cool apps to help baby sleep better.
White noise, massage, and even sounds from nature can help getting your baby to drift off to dreamland much easier. And now, you don't need to buy a mobile, a white noise machine, or stand at the crib humming Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. You can find lots of help out there that can be downloaded easily to your smartphone or tablet. And the best part of all is that now you can take all of this wonderful sleep-inducing convenience with you on your summer vacation.
Although these apps won't exactly guarantee you get a full eight hours, they will help make bedtime a little less stressful for everyone. So add an iTunes gift card to your baby registry and download a little help to ensure you and baby have a more peaceful night's sleep.
