As my readers, you have probably heard me speak of MomCo just a few times, wink wink… right? MomCo is the app that moms not only need, but apparently with our most recent market data proves that they also want it! This is a big reason I came on board with Jillian and Beth to run their Ambassador Program and Blog. At MomCo, we were founded on the idea of Moms Helping Moms. We genuinely want to be a one stop resource for all of you mamas. That includes informing you of products that we discover and love. We are starting a new feature on our website and on the MomCo app called “Mom Must Haves.” Each month, we will be sending out a blog with products we feel moms need to know about as well as put products into the “Mom Must Haves” section of the MomCo app. You can find it on the “Services” screen.
To kick off this new feature, we will start with the must have apps for moms! We have discovered these apps over the past few months and absolutely love them. We are also happy to say that they have all been founded by moms. These moms saw pain points that moms were feeling and they created ways to solve those pain points. Take a look and let us know what you think. Of course, we had to include the MomCo app as one too.
Make sure to check out the Mom Must-Have section for other awesome products we think moms need to know about. Also, we would love to hear about the products that you and your kiddos love. Please leave any suggestions for our Mom Must-Haves in the comment section of this blog post.
Description: MomCo has done for moms what dating apps have done for singles. With the MomCo app, moms can effortlessly locate and connect with other moms in their community that have similar aged children and shared interests. No more wasted time or awkward moments at the playground trying to find moms to be friends with. It also helps moms find resources, products and services that they need. MomCo combined the best elements from other popular platforms currently being utilized by moms and streamlined them to meet the needs of the modern mom. www.momcoapp.com
Our Thoughts: At MomCo, we are 2 moms that are trying to make other moms lives easier. Because we are moms of young children ourselves, we know what moms want. We built this app because it is genuinely something we wish we had when we first became moms. Moms can now find friendship, playdates, support, events, deals, and services…all in one app!
Description: CluckCluck helps organize and simplify communication between parents and their kids’ caregivers. Parents can send one invitation to any (or all) of their go-to caregivers, see who’s available, and book the person they want. They can also provide access to task lists for each child, and get real-time, one-touch updates on those tasks from their sitter while away. Parents can also skip the ATM and pay caregivers directly from the phone and more. www.cluckcluckapp.com
Our Thoughts: This app is genius. One of the biggest challenges with going out without children is the logistics of coordinating what sitter is going to care for your children. With the CluckCluck app, you can easily ask all of your favorite sitters if they are available, book the one you want, get updates while you are gone (is baby asleep yet?!) and pay the sitter through your phone. Life just got a lot easier with this app if you need to coordinate with caregivers.
