An Awesome Idea for Baby’s First Year

By | Brand Spotlight, Little Nugget App, Parenting Apps | No Comments

Baby’s first year is SUCH an exciting time. But, boy does it fly by. As a new mom, we are busy feeding, changing, cleaning, sleeping (when we can!), feeding, going to doctor appointments, doing endless laundry, cuddling, and the list goes on and on. There is barely any time to shower, much less make a scrapbook of baby’s life. If you are anything like me, you know you want to do something special for baby’s first year. Yet, you just don’t have the time or energy for all that.

We’re here to share the best way to document baby’s first year.

Once you get your prints you can pull out your baby book. We highly recommend the Baby Book from Polka Dot Print Shop. This book comes in tons of different designs and colors and is one of the higher quality baby books we’ve found. We also love how simple + functional it is. The pages have just enough room to write, but it doesn’t require writing a whole novel every month. And we love the pages dedicated to photos! This is where we love to put our Little Nugget designs.

5 Products for Techie Moms

By | Baby Gear: Must Haves, Little Nugget App, Parenting Tech | No Comments

As a new mom, we have the ultimate intuition on what our baby needs. However, we also need all the help we can get. New moms barely have time to brush their teeth- so anything that helps us function a little bit better is a must-have for us! We wanted to bring you our five favorite tech products for new moms!

1+ Little Nugget App – Our app is designed to make it so much easier to capture baby’s adorable milestones and growth! From pregnancy bumps to baby mess-ups to big kid milestones, Little Nugget captures fleeting moments, big and small, so you can save them for years to come. Download the app here , take photos of your baby, and edit them with over 450+ stickers and artwork. You can even print your photos right from the app!

You can program and control it all from your phone. It’s perfect when you need a little light during those middle of the night feedings. And the many different sound options will help your baby sleep soundly at night. We love that you can control it all from the app!

3+ Tile – While the Tile is not necessarily designed for new moms, we think it’s the perfect tech product for a sleep deprived mom. Mom brain is real, and we don’t have the time to constantly be searching for our favorite items. The tile clips on to anything you are constantly losing- your keys, camera, wallet, husband (just kidding). And you use the app to find these things instantly. It also will ring your phone when you lose it.

4+ Momsense Smart Breastfeeding Meter – This device actually tracks how much your baby nursed. You place the sensor right below baby’s earlobe and it records each time baby swallows. This technology can track and analyze each nursing session to show how much baby nursed. Isn’t that incredible!? This eases so much stress that goes into breastfeeding.

5+ Starling by VersaMe – This product is so unique, but can have amazing long-term effects so we had to share it with you! This is actually a clip on product that tracks and monitors how many words baby hears a day. It is connected to an app on your phone, understands all languages, and helps you engage more with your baby. The goal each day is for baby to hear 10,000 words a day. This device will help you monitor those words and help you reach the goal. How cool is that? And when baby is a toddler, it can track the words they are saying themselves!

We hope you like these 5 products for techie moms! Let us know in the comments what techie product makes your life as a new mom easier.

By | Parenting, Parenting Apps | No Comments

We all use our phones for everything! They are always close by, and they can be incredibly helpful, especially during those early baby months. These apps can really enhance your life, make things easier, and keep your nerves at bay!

 

Baby Tracker

This app is awesome to use in the hospital & for the first few weeks at home. It allows you to keep track of feedings, diaper changes, sleeping, and more. I love it because it helps me remember the last time I fed baby and on what side! Another cool feature is you can add your baby’s weight and height and it tell you their percentiles. Kinda cool!

Peanut

Little Nugget

Little Nugget is an app to capture pregnancy and baby milestones by adding custom artwork and personalized text to your baby photos in seconds. It makes monthly baby photos and bump photos so fun and easy to make! We are constantly updating the app to bring you the newest artwork and text. And you can even print your designs right from the app!

Baby Sparks

This app is $4.99 but is SO worth it! If you ever are wondering what activities to do with your baby, you NEED this app! It gives you 11 activities to do each day that are age appropriate. It includes activities for different categories like gross motor, fine motor, speech, social, etc. I love it! I found myself doing the same few games with my baby… until I got this app. It’s a lot of fun, and you know your helping your baby learn and grow.

Wonder Weeks

This app is based on the book, but is only $1.99. The idea is that all babies go through developmental leaps. After a leap, they learn new skills. However, leaps also make babies sorta fussy and irritable. This app lets you know when your baby is going to be in a “sunny” time or a “stormy” time. It has been extremely helpful. When baby is acting a little extra fussy- I look on the app and sure enough it is a stormy week. It makes me feel better that she is just going through a lot of changes and it is not something that I am doing.

Take Better Photos With Your iPhone

By | Baby Photography, Baby Photography Apps, DYI Baby Photography | No Comments

Taking great pictures takes time + practice. Some people practice for years to get it right! But, let’s face it. We don’t always have the time or money to invest in professional photography gear. But most of us DO have a iPhone! We wanted to share our top 10 tips for taking better photos with your iPhone!

1 + Wipe off camera lens: This is such an easy tip, but one that’s forgotten a lot. Your phone is constantly being tossed around, going in and out of diaper bags and purses. And if you’re like me, it ends up dropped on the floor A LOT. Before taking your next shot, wipe off the lens on the back. It’ll make a huge difference.

2+Natural light is KEY: This is probably the most important tip of photography. Look for the light. Natural light is the best kind. I actually prefer turning off lamps and overhead light to reduce the yellow tint in my photos. Another great tip- if you’re outside, look for a shady spot to take a photo instead of BRIGHT sun.

3+ Tap on screen to adjust brightness: When in your camera app, tap on different parts of the screen to adjust the brightness. I always touch the darkest part of the photo and then swipe up with my finger to make it brighter.

4+ Keep it LOCKED: Hold your finger on the screen (in the camera app) for a couple of seconds to LOCK the screen. This means that the settings freeze where they are.

5+ Be super still: Another one of those tips that’s super simple, but easily forgotten. Try not to move when your taking a photo. I know it’s hard when your chasing after a toddler. Keep your hands as still as possible to keep a photo sharp.

6+ Check your background: When taking photos of my daughter, I look for neutral, plain backgrounds. You want the focus to be on your subject, not the stuff in the background.

7+ Don’t use iPhone zoom: If you want to get a closer shot, physically walk closer to your subject. You’ll get a way sharper shot. The iPhone does zoo, it’s not high quality. Get closer, instead.

8+ Use photo apps!: Even professional photographers edit their photos. It’s actually known to be the most important step of photography. My favorite is VSCO. I add a filter, crop, brighten, bump up the clarity and we’re good to go!

9+ iPhone 7 portrait mode: Have you tried this yet?! This feature on the new iPhone is a great way to get a professional look using your phone!

10+ Little Nugget App: Our app, Little Nugget is the perfect way to capture your baby’s sweet moments and milestones. From pregnancy bumps to baby mess-ups to big kid milestones, Little Nugget captures fleeting moments, big and small, so you can save them for years to come. We also have a feature that allows you to print your designs right from the app! Perfect to put in a baby book or scrapbook!

I hope these tips are helpful for the next time you take photos with your phone!
