The My Baby Today App is stated to be a new mom’s companion through her baby’s first year, a year when there are many significant developmental changes that can raise countless questions.
BabyCenter.com, a pregnancy and parenting destination, has announced the launch of the My Baby Today App for iPhone and iPod touch, now available on the App Store.
According to BabyCenter’s recent Mobile Mom study, 53 percent of women purchased a smartphone as a direct result of becoming a mom, enabling them to gain access to information right at their fingertips.
