Why so many parents love theAsianparent app
1. Connect with other parents, you can even ask questions ‘Anonymously’
It is often said that it takes a village to raise a child.
Our moms and dads in theAsianparent community are ever willing to help you out, and answer your questions, without judging you. You can post your queries based on topics like “Just Moms”, “Baby”, “Toddler”, “Preschooler”, “Breastfeeding”, “Pregnancy” etc.
And we totally understand that sometimes you might feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about revealing your identity while asking a question. Which is exactly why we introduced the Anonymous feature.
All you need to do is click on “Hide Name” while posting a question, and the app makes sure to set your identity as “Anonymous”.
So go ahead, ask away or vent. Read real reviews before investing on expensive kids products, enrichments centres. You’ll be able to get reviews on the best schools in Singapore, and even receive recommendations on where to look for the best domestic helper!
We are here to listen, help and share our experiences. Let’s learn from one another.
2. Pregnancy Tracker and Baby Tracker
These are two of the most used features on theAsianparent app.
The Pregnancy Tracker lets you track the growth of the baby inside your womb, week by week, day by day. All you need to do is enter your due date, and the tracker tells you which week of your pregnancy journey you are in.
You get information on your baby’s development, pregnancy symptoms you can expect and precautions you may need to take. You can also traverse the pregnancy wheel to know more about what to expect in the coming days.
The Baby Tracker lets you track your baby’s milestones all the way until age 4! It also gives you important information on your little one’s health and nutrition and when you should be concerned and consult a doctor. Again, spin the baby wheel if you are curious about the journey ahead!
3. Food & Nutrition Tool
Is it okay to eat tofu during pregnancy? What about after giving birth and during breastfeeding? When can you give tofu to your baby? A mommy’s life is filled with many doubts when it comes to what is safe for her eat, and what is safe to feed her baby.
Use the Food & Nutrition Tool to clear all your food-related doubts and concerns. Learn why some foods are good for you during pregnancy, but shouldn’t be given to your baby.
This tool has been helpfully organised into categories like whole grains, vegetables, nuts, fruits, supplements etc. so you can navigate easily. You can also use the search bar to look for the food item.
4. Pregnancy and Baby Checklists
Worried you are missing something important while taking care of yourself or your baby? We have quick pregnancy and baby checklists for you, where you can check what you should be doing at that stage of parenthood, be it pregnancy, just after giving birth or later.
Remember to go to the tracker and update your pregnancy or baby’s details.
5. Take part in Contests and WIN cool prizes!
Parenting should be rewarding, right? That’s why we also run plenty of cool contests on theAsianparent app. Look out for the blue gift box icon on the top right, or click on the “Contests” button in the left side menu to catch all our latest giveaways.
