PARENTS ONLY: A new app has been launched that lets parents share their special moments with each other.

A NEW social networking app has been launched for parents to freely share status updates about their children with other parents. 

The free Bupa Family Moments iPhone app provides a platform for parents to share their child's journey without fear of bothering their friends, with a recent Family Moments survey showing almost a third of parents were hesitant about posting childhood updates to sites such as Facebook for fear of boring others.

Developed in conjunction with the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, the app puts everything in one easy-to-access place and includes functions to help parents stay on top of the demands of early childhood, with up-to-date health information, immunisation schedules, and growth charts for parents to keep track of their children's height and weight progress up to three years of age.
