Preparing for a new bundle of joy? Or getting ready for baby number…. whatever it is, new baby products are popping up making mommy-hood that much simpler. Each baby brings new products, new obstacles and with new and improved products, it just eases the anxiety and makes your life, Mommy, easier.
With just having my fifth baby (yes, during a pandemic), of course I bought some new products, upgraded some old (but great) products, or recycled the faves!
Keep on reading for the tried & tested and some of the best baby products out there! (Click on photo to shop!)
Blooming Bath Flower Bath:
One word sums up this product: WOW! I have tried many different types of baths and this is by far my favorite! This product has won the PTPA (Parent Tested Parent approved) award, too! It sits comfortably inside of any sink and really snuggles the baby like when in the mommy’s belly. You don’t have to waste time or water filling up a large bath tub and then getting back pains for having to lean over. Best part, it washes well! Every time I do baby’s load of laundry, I throw it in the washer and dryer. Simple to use, easy to clean and super comfy for baby!
Doona Car Seat/Stroller:
Okay, this is another Wow! Truthfully, since we are in the middle of a pandemic, I haven’t used it as much as if we weren’t. But, the car seat is an all-in-one deal. It’s a car seat that with a simple click unfolds to a stroller! How cool is that? No more stroller attachments, carrying heavy car seats to do a quick in and out errand and makes traveling easy! This is a no brainer Mom’s!
These are a must-have for your hospital bag for your new babe! So sweet and such an upgrade from the normal baby hats or hospital hats they give to you. It makes your new bundle of joy look their best and give picture-perfect memories from day 1! They are super soft and made from hospital-grade fabric to ensure it will be comfortable with no rash for baby.
So when I had my first baby 8 years ago, I bought the Boppy. Ya know, the one that’s U – shaped to help make feeds more comfortable? And while I used it for that purpose, I loved the incline of it so I filled the U with a blanket so my baby could use it more of a lounger. While I was shopping for baby products and doing my research before this baby arrived, I found the product I wish they had made 8 years ago! The Boppy Lounger! And yes, it’s as amazing as I thought it would be. You’ll thank me later!
Kyte Baby Bundler
What an upgrade to the old-fashioned newborn gown! I never understood the concept of having an elastic ‘closure’ at the bottom of the gown. Sweet babe would be freezing! The bundler is just as it sounds; bundles up your baby with a few simple snaps. I loved these for the first 2- 3 months. Made middle of the night diaper changes a breeze and it was super comfy for baby. Oh, and how could I forget? They are made from 97% bamboo rayon and 3% spandex making them the absolute most comfortable thing ever. You’ll want the whole line.
Well, that brings me to this AH-MAZE-ING product. No, seriously. if you don’t have this, click and order it now! It’s literally a miracle worker. At around two months old, I transfer my infant from swaddling to this sleep bag. It’s not only the safest alternative, but it actually helps reduce the percentage of SIDS. It’s made of 97% rayon bamboo and is the SOFTEST thing you have ever felt. You’ll want one for yourself, too. It features a double zipper, so you can unzip from the bottom for middle of the night diaper changes and comes in Togs, which is the weight of the bag according to the temperature in the room (1.0 is perfect for the average temp).
Say hi to the cutest prints that change with the seasons (and holidays too!). I switched over from Pampers to Honest when I had my 3rd baby. I actually liked Pampers quality and fit but couldn’t bear to see another Elmo again. I was OVER IT! I was looking for the whole package: cuteness, durability and protection. This was it! And even better, they have an app that makes ordering easy, gives a discount with a subscription and it’s a no-
hassle cancel if you decide you’re over it (or when your babe is potty trained and they are over it).
I am a Bibs fan. Tried and true fan! I have tried all different brands with every single baby. And Bibs has been the brand that most babies love! They have a natural shape, just like the mothers nipple. I get customers, friends and family calling me all the time with a new baby crying for help! My baby won’t take the paci and won’t stop crying! After trying Bibs, most often, it’s a winner! Happy baby, happy Mommy! And best part, they have every shade of every color to match every cute outfit you have for your babe!
Have you ever tried swaddling a baby? It definitely takes many tries until you finally get it right and baby doesn’t break out of it. Most swaddles aren’t the right shape, the right size, the right fabrics. Posh Peanut swaddles are just right!! With a bit of spandex in them and just the right size, they wrap baby easily and to perfection. I love to wrap baby and tie a knot at the bottom, making it smooth under the baby but tight enough to keep baby wrapped.
Finally found the perfect monitor! Finally a monitor that has a physical monitor AND an app to see baby on your phone through wifi. I have tried both types and before this one, preferred the physical monitor because I didn’t like that I couldn’t use my phone if I wanted to see the baby. Or, if my nanny came, she had to use download the app, my husband had to download the app and everyone else who came to watch the baby. How annoying is that?!?! This gives me the option to use both while at home, as well as if I am out and about and want to check in on baby while he’s sleeping. A perfect combo! Has tons of other functions, including room temperature, music, photos, videos, microphone and so much more.
Munchkin Diaper Pale
Another product that I have tried every brand out there. This is the BEST! I always looked for the ‘best looking’ because it ends up being part of the decor of the nursery. But, finally, I got the Munchkin and while it’s nothing special looks-wise, it most definitely blends in and doesn’t ruin the look I have going in the nursery. Super easy to use, the bags hold a weeks worth of diapers and there is absolutely no smell that leaks out. You can purchase the generic bags, but since I have had luck with the Munchkin bags, not ripping or smelling, I continued to use them.
Best Baby Teether
Think you have tons of time before baby is crying uncontrollably because they are teething? What no one tells you about is that most babies start teething around 2 months, even though most babes don’t actually cut their first tooth until 6 months or later. This baby teether is a rattle and a teether in one! Lightweight and easy for young babies to hold, they love the sound and the silicone calms their teething woes. Secret is out!
This list is just a small insight on some of the best baby products on the market right now. Of course, there are so many more but this is a great start to begin your registry, especially since so much is now done online and not in the store with a consultant.
