From Pregnancy Preparation Apps to Sleep-Monitoring Infant Wearables

From pregnancy preparation apps to sleep-monitoring infant wearables, the April 2016 baby trends clearly demonstrate that parents-to-be are increasingly looking for new ways to prepare for the arrival of a newborn. More specifically, parents are turning to new technology to make sure they are meeting the needs of their new baby.

Prior to the birth of their child, many women are looking for products that can help them adjust to different stages of their pregnancy. One of the most popular ways that moms-to-be are doing this is by downloading pregnancy-specific apps. One such example is the Pro Pregnancy Organizer app, which includes everything from budgeting tools to an AR nursery room decoration feature.

Beyond pregnancy apps, the April 2016 baby trends reveal a desire for tools that can help parents track the physical and emotional well-being of their child. One such example is the 'allb' wearable, which tracks a baby's vitals as they sleep. Another example is the Mini-Boo car seat, which uses a dashboard-mounted nanny cam to help parents keep an eye on their infant as they drive.
