Parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world. There are no off-timings, there are no set guidelines and little things you do have everlasting consequences. Yet, with technology and the changing times, it has become possible to outsource certain portions of parenting, which in itself can make a big difference in the parents’ life. Take, for example, baby monitor apps. They can keep you alerted to the baby’s needs without your physical presence so you can rest easy and leave your premises without worry or guilt.
Monitor Your Babies with the help of these apps!
In addition to that, you can also record your baby’s sleep cycles, feeding cycles etc., and analyze them (using the app’s tools) to find patterns to not just be better prepared in the future, but also set your schedule around baby’s. Here we have curated the best baby monitor apps on Android for you:
Baby Monitor & Alarm
Baby Monitor Alarm has been made by a couple that tried their app out on their own kids before releasing the app. The app lets you set a pre-chosen audio clip or even a song to play automatically if the baby wakes up in order to calm him down and let him gradually fall asleep.

Alfred Home Security Camera
If your baby is on the quiet side and doesn’t really need much help, then an option is to convert an old smartphone into a monitoring camera using the Alfred Home Security Camera app. This app not only helps you monitor the child visually but also alerts you to any movement even when you’re not looking, using its motion sensors.

tinyCam PRO is a terrific app for keeping an eye on your babies at home while you’re out and about. The only requirement is getting an IP camera installed in your house. Once that is done, you can watch the live feed, get a 360-degree view of the room, zoom in at a particular angle of interest, and turn on the audio signal to listen in as well. The app has a separate baby monitor section to do just that, baby monitoring.

5. Baby Monitor
Baby Monitor gives you the option of being alerted by either text or call to notify you about the baby’s situation. It even allows you to take a picture of the baby remotely and have it sent to you when you wish it. Then there is the Sleep Diary feature, that allows you to maintain a sort of a logbook about your baby’s sleep activities to analyze at the end of the month.

6. Baby Monitor 3G
Baby Monitor 3G is another great option for new parents. It can be used to watch your baby from afar in real time. Not only that, if you hear sounds but cannot figure out what they are, you can sensitize the phone present in the baby’s room remotely and hear the sounds more clearly. Baby Monitor 3G also maintains a log of the child’s everyday activities.
