When my friends were sophomore in high school they had a class that taught them how to raise a baby. They actually packed around a 10 pound sack of rice for 1 week and were required to keep it with them at all times. They learned all the basics of feeding, clothing and caring for a child. Yes, you guessed it; there is now an app for that and a very remarkable app. You can select your cute baby that does not look like a sack of rice. The baby grows, changes moods and can acquire things like a crib, playroom and toys.
Both my daughters are addicted to the app and check it constantly. They love the concept of taking care of a virtual baby and the life like requirements of a virtual baby. The sound effects are really cute. You hear splashing when you give you baby a bath for example.
Here are some screenshots from the app:
