With my first baby,I used to list and relist all the things the baby needs on paper.With my other two,I recycled the list scratching out things I already have or things that are not really necessary to say the least.So when we go shopping,I have this crumpled paper with me all the time.But thank God for technology,you can leave all that paper list behind.I came upon this cute app because it's on price drop.From 0.99 to FREE.For moms-to-be,this app can really help sorting out your lists because sometimes,this part can be mind-boggling and time-consuming.This app is grouped by 10 categories and over 70 items are provided.All you have to do is tap the boxes to check and uncheck items you need.Check this app on the App store and say hello to hassle-free baby shopping. :)

According to a recent poll on Babytalk.com,only about 6 percent of moms diligently wipe their babies' teeth and gums with a wet wash cloth to get rid of food particles.That's like a small percentage when tooth cavities in children are on the rise.To keep our kids' teeth gleaming, here are tricks on how to take care of them.
1.Brushing routine.One goal is to routinely wipe them once or even twice a day.Some kids need a little getting used to.And routine teeth cleaning minimizes screams of protest.
2.Better brushing.When baby sprouts a tooth or more,it's time to ditch the damp washcloth and go for a small toothbrush with soft bristles.And clean all surfaces including the gum line.
3.Using toothpaste.You don't need toothpaste until your child turns two.Before that age,brushing with water will suit just fine.But if your toddler wants to feel grownup,a kiddie flouride-free toothpaste will do.
4.Dental Check-Ups.Experts highly recommend taking your child to the dentist at the age of 1.But you could also ask your child's pediatrician to check on his chompers if you could not get to a dentist around this time.

Being an avid Instagram user,I've always wanted my photos to just magically spit out of my mobile device just like a Polaroid camera would.I think it would be great to bring that functionality on Instagram.
As any wishful thinking,dreams do come true.There is now an answered prayer to all our Instagram demands.Meet INSTAPRINT ,a mobile photo booth that prints your Instagram photos Polaroid style.Instaprint is created by a Brooklyn-based company called Breakfast.So how does it work?It actually connects to your mobile device via wifi and prints your photos.The cool thing is that you never have to worry about running out of ink when printing your photos because with Instaprint,all the color is pulled from the special photo paper made for the device.Here's what it looks like.
I don't know if it's available in most countries though.But they can be rented out for events.As of the moment,Breakfast is raising funds through Kickstarter for mass production.While Instaprint made its appearances on special events,the people at Breakfast is looking for a larger audience.So that's something to look forward to.
