We collect apps the way some people collect baseball cards. Some are downright wacky, some fun, some useful and one we use almost every day this time of year tells us where we parked our car at the mall.
For new parents stressed about the nursery there’s now the Peaceful Nursery iPhone app. No, it’s not a decorating tool but a how-to create an eco-friendly green, chemical-free haven.
The checklist for new parents is the best part:
…quick and easy shopping checklist of all the right items to buy for the nursery, along with tips about what to avoid, and an explanation of what chemicals are often found in each product. For example, polyurethane foam is often used in baby mattresses; as foam ages, it breaks down and releases flame-retardant chemicals into the air where baby, and parents, can breathe them. Buying an organic mattress or all natural bumper can give a new mom peace of mind. A paint guide, tips on everything from helping baby sleep to uses of color, and a section on how to arrange your nursery are also available, along with video insights from the app’s co-authors.
The Peaceful Nursery ($1.99) has versions compatible with iPhone 3 and iPhone 4, as well as iPod Touch.
