Parenting is a challenging job but these top five parenting iPhone apps make it just a little bit easier.
Best Parenting iPhone Apps: Baby Tracker
Best Nursing App
Download Baby Tracker
If you are a nursing mother and have a difficult time keeping track of your nursing sessions, then Baby Tracker may just be a sanity saver. This parenting iPhone app even keeps track of multiple babies and chaotic nursing schedules. It is the perfect app for parents of multiples.

Best Parenting iPhone Apps: iReward Chart
Best Child Incentive App
Download iReward Chart
Right now I am in the midst of teaching my two toddlers how to be responsible for some basic household chores. One of my biggest challenges has been keeping track of their progress. iReward Chart solves this problem. It also eliminates unsightly chore charts from cluttering up the walls, refrigerator and doors of your home. In this parenting iPhone app, parents set up separate ‘accounts’ for their kids and assign them chores. You can actually use this app for any type of behavior your kids are working on but I have only used it for chores. There are built in tasks or you can create your own. Once the tasks are all entered, iReward Chart creates the virtual chart. Kids then tap the empty stars next to each task as completed to fill it in. You can also set up a rewards system based on the number of stars kids have earned.
Best Parenting iPhone Apps: Potty Predictor
Best Potty Training App
Download Potty Predictor
Have you read all the potty training books, but still need help? Do you have a problem being consistent with potty training? Then let Potty Predictor be your virtual potty training hand holder. This parenting iPhone app sets up a potty training schedule based on your child’s bathroom patterns. Simply keep track of the timing of your child’s drinks and Potty Predictor will prompt you to take your little trainer to the bathroom 25 minutes later. You keep track of your child’s progress by recording their successes and accidents. Once the iPhone app has determined your child’s bathroom pattern, you switch over to prediction mode. Potty Predictor will alert you when it is time to take your tot to the bathroom. Kids are rewarded with virtual stickers for success.
