Aussie Mums Share the App That Is Making Their Life Easier

Aussie Mums Share the App That Is Making Their Life Easier

Sponsored post

For me, catching up with my mumma tribe is always an instant and full bottle access to parenting information. It’s a time to share information on must-have products and discuss all of the important everyday issues and challenges that we face, as well as the more mundane tribulations. At a recent catch-up I used the “Save the Date to Vaccinate” app as a platform to gauge and initiate the sometimes tricky topic of vaccination with them. (If you read my article a few weeks ago you’ll know exactly why I am so passionate about it). Running through the apps features our conversation quickly shifted and erupted, we felt free to talk and laugh about the often unspoken, forgotten, panicked moments we’ve experienced in our never-ending mission to be the perfect parents. We shared the raising apprehension we often felt about trying to stay on top of everything and opened up communications that enabled us to offer one another sound, knowledgeable advice. Excited and keen to see what else this app could offer I sent my mummy’s away to use it in their everyday life and navigate it in their own time. They agreed to get back to me after a month and share their thoughts and experiences using the app.

 

With 3 kids I can often lose track of when their next vaccinations are due.

Before trialing the app I relied on GP reminders and a wall calendar to keep up with vaccinations.

I think the Save the Date app is amazing!! It makes it easy to see when they’re due, what they’ve had and it’s an app on the phone which means it’s always accessible! Another advantage of this app could also be better vaccination rates.

I’ve already shared it with my mother’s group.

I’m a nurse as well as a mother and I love this app for keeping vaccination rates up because life gets busy and sometimes we accidentally forget these important things!!

Life gets busy and although  vaccinations are important they can easily be forgotten. The Save the Date to Vaccinate app is good, clear and easy to set up. The ability to call your GP or immunisation provider straight from the app to make an appointment is very good. It’s also great having a clear record conveniently on your mobile.

It’s an easy way to stay on top of it and help your other busy mum friends by sharing it with them too. I told my mums group so that we can all keep up to date together.

Life gets busy and while you have the best intentions, sometimes you forget when vaccinations are due. The Save the Date to Vaccinate app is such a practical idea for busy mums! So helpful with an already hectic lifestyle!

By getting together and talking about the app and why we loved it really helped to open up the topic of vaccination altogether. I have told my friends and family about the app. My family, especially my mum who had been a midwife all her life, was thrilled to see such a crucial and beneficial app! I really loved it! Wish I had known about it with my first but will keep it on hand for my second!

Getting back in touch to share our thoughts, the room was buzzing with love for the app that simply wants to help and make busy mums lives just that little bit easier. The ease of use and practical benefits had boosted our confidence to stress less about one aspect of parenting. We all know and understand the importance of on-time vaccinations and we all felt that the app relieved the pressure to be the ‘perfect mum’ who never EVER makes mistakes. Winning and grinning all round!

You can do your bit by downloading the app today and sharing it with your mum tribe!
