One of my mothers told me about this app that controls her son's phone to limit screen time. Per their website at www.ourpact.com, this is "a simple family locator and parental control app that allows parents to locate family members and limit screen time by blocking internet and app access. There is a free basic version, a OurPact Plus version for $1.99 per month that manages multiple children and schedules, and a OurPact Premium version that is $6.99 per month that blocks testing, individual app control, screen time allowance, and family locator.
As a photographer, I always wondered how baby photographers are able to have babies sound asleep and not fussy when taking their photograph. This is where white noise makers come in. White noise is great, not only in making your baby less fussy, but might even help in colicky babies! When I was talking to the Bella Baby photographer, the app she uses to take baby pictures at Kapiolani Medical Center is called Sound Sleeper. There's a free version which I have on my phone, and the setting the Bella Baby photographer uses is called womb. To check out the iPhone app, click here.
