2. 4moms mamaRoo 4 Baby Swing

It’s no secret that babies love to be soothed by swaying and rocking motions, so the team at 4moms developed a device that recreates those same movements.

The mamaRoo 4 is a hi-tech baby swing that offers the best in comfort and technology to keep your little one feeling relaxed and content.

It has five lifelike motions with each having five different speed options, they include:

6. Haakaa Breast Milk Saver Nursing Shells

My partner swears by these Breast Milk Saver Nursing Cups from Haakaa.

She especially loves these three features:

  1. The design includes four feet allowing you to place the shells upright, which helps to prevent any spills.
  2. Where other products ‘sit’ on the breast, these shells create a light level of suction that helps to keep it in place and makes a seal that stops any leaks.
  3. There is a plug and pouring hole that makes it super simple to transfer the milk to a bottle or freezer bag.

They’re also 100 percent BPA, PVC and phthalate free, so you can feel totally safe and confident pouring the milk right into a bottle for your baby.

7. Newborn Safe Electric Nail Clippers Kit

The first time you have to clip your baby’s tiny and soft nails can be a real anxiety inducing experience.

Take the edge off with this Newborn Safe Electric Nail Clippers Kit. They are a great option for clipping and polishing your child’s nails without damaging cuticles or soft nail beds.

If you prefer to trim their nails while they sleep, you’ll love using the non-intrusive front LED light. The motor is also whisper-quiet so you won’t have to worry about them waking up

While the kit was made for Newborns, it does come with three attachments for children and adults, so you can use these clippers for the whole family!

Let’s face it, we’re all busier than ever. Who really has the time to mix and heat bottles the old-fashioned way anymore? Of all the products on the market that make the process easier, the Baby Brezza Formula Pro is one of the best.

This innovative device automatically blends and mixes a warm bottle of formula in an instant.

It’s fully customizable, allowing you to dispense formula at the perfect consistency in 1 oz increments (between 2 and 10 oz) and three different temperatures.

What’s really cool is that the Formula Pro is compatible with just about any formula brand you can think of, as well as all bottle brands and their various sizes.

10. Boon Countertop Drying Rack Lawn

Parents know exactly how much time it takes to wash all those little bottle and pump parts and the seemingly endless barrage of feeding accessories.

The answer is too long! 🙂

Then there comes the problem of where you can store them all to dry properly. To help, Boon have created a Countertop Drying Rack that offers an adorable solution.

This two-piece design includes a lawn style drying rack that sits on top of a low-profile water tray, which can be taken apart easily for convenient cleaning.

We love the flexible grass-like blades, which are BPA, PVC and phthalate free, because they allow you to place baby accessories of differing shapes and sizes in an infinite amount of configurations to hold as much as possible.

11. Hatch App Controlled Sound Machine, Night & Rise Light

Help your little one get a restful nights sleep with the App Controlled Sound Machine by Hatch.

This multi-functional device combines the comfort of a sound machine with a soothing night light so your little one can drift off peacefully. Add in a time-to-rise function and you’ve got yourself a convenient way to stick to your sleep routine.

The features we like include:

  1. Automatically program it to turn on and off (and manually as needed)
  2. Customize LED lamp color and brightness, and
  3. Choose different sounds and adjust the volume.

All of this can be done on the device, but the smartphone app is what makes this sound machine, baby gadget worthy.

The Hatch Baby Rest app is super easy to use and allows you to control all of the features above without having to disturb your little one.

12. Playtex Anti-Colic Feeding Bottles

It can be an overwhelming experience seeing a baby dealing with colic.

To help reduce air ingestion while feeding, which can cause abdominal gas and colic [source], the team at Playtex created anti-colic VentAir Bottles.

The secret has to do with the patented design of the vent in the bottom of the bottle. While your baby is feeding the vent keeps air at the back of the bottle rather than mixing with the milk, like with conventional bottles.

Playtex has also included their Naturalatch silicone nipple, which has a wide shape and is designed to feel ‘more like mom’.

For added convenience, these VentAire bottles are super easy to clean and reassemble.

13. Electric Baby Nasal Aspirator

Being a father of two young boys, seeing them struggle with a cold pulled on my heart strings!

I’m sure every parent can relate. 

This Electric Baby Nasal Aspirator, or what I like to call the ‘automatic booger sucker’, is designed to help keep your child’s nose mucus-free. 

With three levels of suction to choose from, you can ease their discomfort whether they’ve got a nasty cold or are just experiencing a bit of allergies. 

It also comes with two reusable nasal aspirator tips, which can be rewashed and used again. Saving you the hassle of having to stock up on disposable tips while helping the environment. 

Win-win!

Another fun feature is the LCD display screen with music settings. It’s likely going to be an uncomfortable experience and something they don’t want to sit still for. So adding a little music will hopefully keep them calm enough for you to do a thorough job.

14. Wabi UV-C Baby Bottle Sterilizer & Dryer

Fact: A parent’s number one priority is to keep their baby safe and healthy in every way.

The Wabi UV-C Baby Bottle Sterilizer & Dryer helps ensure that all their feeding supplies are completely clean and safe to use.

This ultraviolet lighting sanitizer uses a gentle, low-heat UV system to eliminate germs and bacteria in just 30 minutes. It’s worth noting that it can be used on much more than baby feeding supplies.

You can also safely and effectively sterilize things your baby can get ahold of like keys, electronic devices, sunglasses and many other items.

15. LEVOIT Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier

My eldest son has super-sensitive skin and whenever the air is too dry it creates a host of problems.

We found that a humidifier like the LEVOIT Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier helped to drastically reduce his skin irritations and keep him comfortable while sleeping. 

Speaking of sleeping, LEVOIT’s humidifier uses a patented silencer that creates less than 30dB on the highest setting. This is even quieter than a library! There is also a (blue) night light but this can be turned off, along with the light up display if your baby prefers to pitch black environment.

Some options can’t run all night because they don’t have a large enough water tank. To fix this, LEVOIT has integrated a 0.63 gal (2.4L) tank that will last for:

16. LEVOIT HEPA Filter Air Purifiers for Allergies

If anyone in your little family suffers from allergies the LEVOIT HEPA Air Filter should be your go to air purifier.

It has an advanced 3-stage filtration system, which is designed to capture everything from pet hair and dander to large dust particles, mold and smoke. 

What we really like is that LEVOIT has developed this air purifier with children and asthma sufferers in mind. They have refrained from using UVC light or anion, which are common in other filters. Making it 100% Ozone-free.

Also, just like their humidifier above, it’s super quiet and only creates 25dB of noise.

Other features we think make it a great gadget for your baby include a smart filter change reminder and a nightlight with two brightness settings.

17. Fisher-Price Smart Connect Deluxe Soother

The Fisher-Price Smart Connect Deluxe Soother comes with a host of features designed to create a calm and peaceful bedtime environment for your little one. 

It has three sound options (soothing music, nature sounds and white noise) which all have full volume control and there’s also three lighting options (amber night light, projected stars and projected animals). All of this can be controlled via the easy to use Smart Connect app.

But what makes this a baby gadget worthy device is the Sleep Stages tool. Within the app you can create personalized and automated bedtime routines, which is perfect for anyone who is struggling with setting up a structure.

Give your back and your baby a rest with the TushBaby Hip Seat Baby Carrier.
