As I sit in the corner of my bedroom in the wee hours of the morning nursing my baby, I have one hand free. With an iphone in that hand, I can do practically anything! Being a mother of a newborn is different than the last time I did it; that was the old days — 2007. 2011 smart-phone-enabled mothering is mind-blowingly amazing and I want to tell you why I love it:

Twitter. I can keep up with all matter of news overnight as well as commiserate with other sleepless mothers (hashtag #zombiemoms). Not so lonely anymore.

Amazon app. get this totally free app and sign up for Amazon mother to get deals on baby stuff and free-two day shipping on nearly anything with one thumb click.

Baby tracker. using baby connect ($4.99), I can track feeding and sleep patterns like the nerd I am. An extra geeky feature syncs this data to my husband’s phone and our iPad. eat sleep is also pretty good for $0.

Text messages. No need to yell to the other end of the house. When I text I need a hand, my spouse comes quickly.

Camera. When I’m stuck under a sleeping floppy baby, I can take pictures. lots of pictures.
