MyPhones headphones for kids

These are a great idea as most kids today have an array of gadgets that require headphones. MyPhones have been built to cap volume at 85 decibels and are supra-aural, meaning that they sit outside the ear with no parts entering the ear canal. Little ears will now be properly protected.

They can also be customized which kids love to do – they can design their own shell caps, swap with friends and mix and match to make theirs a completely unique and personal set. There’s even a GoCase, which stores and protects the MyPhones, meaning the kids can grab them and go when they want to enjoy music and games on the move. As well as giving youngsters the excitement of their own headphones, MyPhones give parents confidence that their children are enjoying audio safely and responsibly.

Baby Geek: useful gadget for your newborn

Baby Brain to the rescue

I remember when my sis had a baby, there were lists everywhere of feeds and times and naps and sleeps and feeds again and back to times, in fact pretty much everything baby related, and she was so tired that I actually think her brain had turned to mush!

Bring in the Baby Brain iPhone app. It basically keeps a log on your iPhone and tracks things such as feeds, nappies and sleep (no, not yours unfortunately), putting your mind at rest as a new mum and also saving you the hassle of scribbling everything down on bits of paper which end up scattered around the house!

It’s a brilliant idea and so easy to use. It answers your questions at the touch of a screen, so if you’re wondering when was the last feed or how much sleep is he/she getting each day or are they eating enough, it has all the information in one convenient place because let’s face it we’re never without our iPhones now are we!
