‘Kids on the Go’ App Offers NYC Parents New Options

KidsonGo1As soon as the temperature dips in New York, parents start asking: What will we do with the kids?

Enter the Mommy Poppins app.

The map-based app lets you search for fun family activities nearby, which can particularly help if you’re in an unknown nabe.

Pixie Scientific Developing Smart Diapers to Safely Monitor Your Baby’s Health

Pixie Scientific is developing a smarter diaper with built-in urine tests that gives colorful results as scan-able QR codes.

The data from your baby’s diapers can help you track urinary infections, dehydration, and possible kidney infections. You can also send information straight from the app to your pediatrician.

Since the diapers are still in development, they are a bit pricey.
