Calendars

Monitoring your child’s activities

Sleep is one of the things that parents really crave for. You can get apps that allow you to have an extra few minutes of sleep as they  turn your phone into a baby monitor – you will be notified on the other phone when your child wakes up.

 

Fun time with your child
