I have been lucky enough to have been chosen to take part in a campaign for Mum and You.
If you haven’t checked them out follow the link above and have a look! It is a business made for mums by mums, however this blog post isn’t about telling you about the brand. It’s about an exciting new app they have launched!
Mum and you have launched an app called Nappy Chat App. An app for you to chat, sing and share with your baby. Research has shown that 1/3 children are not ‘school ready’ by the time they are due to start Primary School. A lot of this is down to parents not knowing how to communicate with their baby in a beneficial way. Let’s be honest, it’s hard knowing what to say to a baby sometimes. Baby’s learn by listening to us and taking in their surroundings. This means it is so important to communicate with them in an effective way.
The Nappy Chat App has been created to help you find ways to bond with your baby, whilst teaching them things at the same time. It’s a time for you (like I said before) to chat, sing and share. When changing your baby’s nappy this is the perfect time.
When you first download the app you can personalise it with your child’s name and D.O.B which I loved straight away!
You can also add more than one child so no one gets left out!
If you click first on the stories and poems there are loads of age appropriate things you can read to your baby. I’ve found these amazing at nappy change time! It helps to keep Freddie still rather than trying to escape. It keeps him entertained whilst I do it, and he can learn along the way! The characters on the app match the characters which are found on their nappy chat nappies. These can be purchased from the website above. Don’t feel you HAVE to buy their nappies to download this app though. They are still fun characters which can be used whether you have the nappies or not! (However I have personally found the nappies amazing).
Along the top of the stories & poems you can choose between characters or classics! So there is always plenty of choice. You can then save your favourites so they are easy to get to next time.
Another feature which I LOVE about this app.. playtime!! Does anyone else sit on the floor with their child, with the same toys they have played with for ages and think.. I must be able to do something different with them today! Well if you have this app it will give you plenty of age appropriate things you can do with your baby! A lot of them are also things which you will have in your house you just haven’t thought to use them for playtime.
This is one of Freddie’s personal favourites, he absolutely loves seeing himself in the mirror! We both chat away and he always has a big smile on his face!
Now.. would you like the best news of this whole blog post.. this app is completely FREE! So don’t think that I am trying to get you to spend anymore money (baby’s are expensive I know!!) You can download this app and have a play without spending a penny. So what do you have to lose.
Seriously I would definitely recommend giving it ago. It’s been absolutely amazing for us and worked wonders. It’s also helped my partner learn some new rhymes and songs to sing to Freddie.
Now because I like to make things as easy as possible for you, I’m going to leave the links for you for both Apple and android so you can download the app.
Have fun everyone 🖤
