Being a mum often means you are administrator, cook, housekeeper and worrier-in-chief all rolled into one! So without adding a few extra hours in the day how can one save time (whilst still making sure everyone is fed and watered- yourself included)?
Enter the world of time-saving apps – parent hacks at your fingertips that every mum needs. From fitness to meet-ups to weaning, these apps will give you more time and less stress- with even a little relaxation thrown in for good measure…
This new app was designed specifically for women approaching 40 and beyond, pre and post-natal who maybe stuck at home in these uncertain times, juggling work and children. It’s now tougher than ever to find the crucial time to stay active so niix was created to eliminate barriers for busy women to have a fit and healthy life, with exercise helping them gain confidence both mentally and physically.
The ‘niix Method’ classes are categorised into and eight week programmes for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced levels, with ‘niix Focus’, offering shorter, more targeted goal specific programmes such as Fortnightly Fat Burner, Sculpt & Burn & Core Toner. niix also offers a programme for new mums, with a six week Post Pregnancy Strengthening programme to help them safely get back into shape. With no equipment needed and class duration ranging from 10 to 30 mins, the app is designed to offer a 1-2-1 personal training experience that fits into busy schedules anytime, anywhere.
Phoebe is an app that helps new parents approach the weaning challenge with confidence, offering the healthiest meal on the baby’s table.
Phoebe features fifty-file recipes on short videos that are designed for new parents with any cooking skills. More recipes are added weekly. Phoebe is carefully tested with other parents to help simplify the process of cooking during the weaning stage. All recipes are BLW (baby-led weaning) friendly but can be pulped to traditional weaning.
Dubbed the Tinder for Mums, Peanut is the favourite to meet other new mums near you. With a filter for baby’s age and Mum’s interests, it swiftly matches you with other ‘Peanuts’ close by. An app made for connecting within the community – you’ll soon be laughing, crying and comparing each other’s sleepless nights over a double shot espresso in your local café.

Sound Sleeper: White Noise App
White Noise is a mix of all different pitches of sounds blended together. It’s a great tool to soothe fussing babies and boost sleep. Popular sounds include a whirring fan, aeroplane hum or the ever-reliable ‘ssh’ sound. If you’ve used Youtube for a free white noise playlist, you’ll know when an advert suddenly plays mid-sleep – it’s game over! So a fail-safe option (and a less bright screen) is to use Sound Sleeper. Sounds include the vacuum cleaner, gentle rain, comforting womb, and soothing lullabies, with traditional favourites and modern renditions.
