Parentdish, a blog for folks with children on their mind, compiled a list of Apple iPhone applications to help with some of the daily tasks of parenting. In terms of medical relevance, a few of the entries are of particular interest.
The Baby Tracker is an application that keeps a tab on nursing, including which breast was used, when, and for how long.
Diaper Tracker is for those times when the doctor asks to keep watch on the stool output of your child. Who knew that the glamor of the iPhone would get to this?
Food Additives is a portable database of, well, food additives “sorted by name, risk type and symptom type”. This application may help parents of children with food allergies do weekly food shopping at the market.
Finally, Baby Monitor turns your iPhone into a standard monitor, but with capabilities to listen from any location. Via the application, when noise is detected from a waking baby, the iPhone will place a call to any predefined number like the house phone or a parent’s cell phone.
