The 3 Best Free Social & Mobile Tools for Moms & Dads

You just poured your morning tea into your baby’s milk bottle. Face it, you need help. As a proud parent of two I find the following three social and mobile apps the most helpful:

Songza: Kids love music and Songza helps provide great genres and stations to get your kids exposed to the arts. So, when you need a break from the Frozen soundtrack try some of Songza’s kid genres which include: Songs to Raise Your Kids To, Today’s Pop Hits (Clean Lyrics), Sweet Lullabies, and my personal favorite Shhh, Don’t Wake the Baby. Songza plays the right music for any situation and is 100% free, with no audio ads.

Uber: Need help with a quick milk run or don’t feel like dealing with a Taxi dispatcher while your 6-month old screams in your ear? Uber is a “must-have” app even for non-parents. Uber is the “new taxi” and best of all it is faster, cheaper, and friendlier than your father’s taxi. Download the Uber app for you phone today and thank me tomorrow. Tip: There is usually a $25 promo code credit for your first Uber ride.

DisneyJr: This app works in affiliation with your local cable provider and allows your kids to watch the programming on the go (tablet, smartphone). My favorite is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse as it teaches the kids about numbers, counting, shapes, colors and many other educational items and it’s consistently 18-20 minutes in length. I particularly like it in the morning craziness of doing their hair, clothes, shoes, breakfast and tooth brushing.
