The progress of a baby's growth can be documented using smartphone applications such as My Baby Book and Disney's Story, explains Lauren Jimeson on Babble. Baby photos can also be strung together using software such JPGvideo and PhotoLapse 3 to create memorable time-lapse videos, advises Jack Schofield for the Guardian.
Other smartphone applications that can be used to document a baby's growth include Tweekaboo, Baby Log, Ukky Journal and Photo Album, Time Hut Baby Book and Journal, Our Kids, and Kidlee Baby Book and Journal, explains Jimeson. Other applications include Tinybeans, Bambio, HiBaby Diary, Lifecake and Intoloop, explains Azzief Khaliq on Hongkiat.
Taking creatively staged, weekly photos is another way of documenting baby growth, explains Leigh Weingus for the Huffington Post. Pictures generated from ultrasound imaging are another way of tracking growth, explains Holly Whitney on Babble. Whenever possible, mothers should attend facilities offering 3D ultrasound imaging as this approach generates high-quality, grain-free images.
A series of short videos can also document the progress of growth, explains Schofield. These can be edited and joined together to form a longer, more memorable video. Alternatively, morphing software such as DebugMode WinMorph or Norrkross MorphX can be used to join a number of high-quality photos and create morphing effects in the transitions between the images.
