As any rookie mom and dad can tell you, first baths and first steps are cause for celebration — and potentially, reason to freak out. Luckily, there’s an app for that.
Launched by pregnancy and parenting resource The Bump, The Bump Pregnancy and The Bump Baby apps (available for free on iTunes) offer hand-holding in the form of Q&As with its editors, a calendar of milestones, checklists, and a journal feature for a tyke’s first 12 months.
Declaring October “Bump It Forward” month, The Bump will give a donation for every download of the app this month to Every Mother Counts, a non-profit founded by Christy Turlington Burns that helps to ensure safe pregnancies and births worldwide. A mother of two (daughter Grace, 11, and son, Finn, 8, with husband Edward Burns), the model and humanitarian is all about educating and empowering, especially when it comes to maternal health.
