Glow App now helps post-pregnancy
From prenatal to postpartum: We covered Glow in September when it provided ovulation and fertility tracking, but now the company has added a whole ’nother niche to its service: First, Glow would help you get pregnant; then Glow Nurture gave pregnancy tips; now it takes on the behavior and feelings you might experience after giving birth.

Baby’s First Music Player
                          Most every adult has had the experience of being driven nuts by a toddler toy that plays the same song over. And over. And over. Ralph Waldo Emerson wasn’t referring to tykes in his quote, “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds…”–but it’s an apt description nevertheless. More
Send those baby pics more simply
Having a new baby introduces a lot of complications — including sending photos of your infant to all your friends and relatives, on all the various services they might be using. A new service named KidPost aims to simplify that for you, by consolidating all the shots on all the sites, and sending them in one email message to those people such as your grandparents who might not be the most tech-savvy… You can still share photos wherever you like — just add the hashtag “#kidpost” and those pictures are later consolidated into a daily message.

Take a hike, baby!
Some baby carriers area almost baby-sized — but the Bitybean is an “ultracompact” carrier that can fit in purse when not in use.

It weighs just 8 ounces and is “smaller than a water bottle,” but it will let you front- or rear-carry for infants 3 months old, from 8-40 pounds, with anatomically designed shoulder and waist straps.

Bilibo arouses curiosity, engages the imagination and playfully trains basic motor skills and balance, the company adds. More
Start singing, baby!
This gadget is more than just an amplified microphone: turn the mic on “and a glowing baby-animal will appear on the mirror with a mic in the hand” to join your tot in a tune. And it’s more than just songs: With its Activity Cube Center, “everywhere baby turns there is something to do and learn,” maker WolVol says. More
3D “printed” heart helps save baby’s life
3D “printing” is a new manufacturing technique that sprays out solid material like an inkjet printer, building it up layer by layer into a larger object. The first 3D printed items were simple lumpy toys. But the technology has advanced fast — and now surgeons have used a 3D model of an infant’s heart to prepare for life-saving surgery. More
