A smartphone is a Mom's best friend. And I don't just mean as a toy to hand to the little one when you need a few minutes of quiet. There are thousands of apps out there that help make a parent's life easier, more organized, and, yes, entertaining. Whether using it to find a reliable babysitter, listen to podcasts, track workouts (and baby naps!), navigate directions or play white noise, millennial mamas love to keep their phones up to date with the latest and greatest apps.

From a one-time, last-minute date night, to a full-time nanny while parents are at work, Sittercity has it all. Simple as that!
  2. Peanut: Mom-life can make it difficult to meet and connect with other women — but Peanut is the app to change that! Often described as the Tinder app for moms, Peanut helps like-minded women connect based on the age of their children and common interests. It’s a platform to create relationships, get and give support, educate each other and more, all available to millennial moms navigating parenthood.
  3. The Wonder Weeks: Babies grow rapidly and change very quickly, often faster than moms and dads can keep track of. Thankfully, The Wonder Weeks app holds more than 35 years of scientific research to keep parents informed about their baby’s physical and mental changes — giving new millennial parents a world of knowledge in the palm of their hand.
  4. Sleeptot: Nights of restlessness and little to no sleep for mom and dad are a thing of the past, thanks to Sleeptot!
