Baby Monitor for Windows Mobile is a neat piece of software created by Russian developer Pavel Ananyev, which allows you to use your smartphone like a baby monitor. This way, you’ll be able to hear the noise made by your little bundle of joy, when he or she wakes up.

The app comes with noise suppression technology, that ignores environmental sounds and focuses on the noises made by the baby. This software also silences the phone’s ringer, in order to avoid waking the baby up when you get a phone call. Once the child makes a sound, the handset will call a preset number and tell the parents that he’s awake.

Baby Monitor (software) costs $19.99 and can be downloaded from here.

About one in every 9 or 10 kids starts talking late. “More than half the time, nothing is wrong and late talking is just a stage,” Camarata told me. If you follow a group of 2- and 3-year olds who have language delays, as many as 60 percent will be speaking just fine a year or two later. When do baby boys talk? If your child still isn’t saying words at 18 months, be sure to bring it up with his or her doctor. Don’t just assume your child will simply grow out of it. A physical exam and a hearing test to rule out problems is always the best first step, Camarata says. Then a speech pathologist can check for language disorders.
