The Owlet smart sock is a fantastic tool, giving parents and caretakers the ability to monitor things such as your little one’s heart rate and blood oxygen level. It’s incredibly easy to use, functioning like a normal sock that you would put on a baby’s foot. Many wonder if it’s truly worth the expense- we say absolutely!

You probably know this by now, but you’re going to be changing A LOT of diapers once your little one comes! Not looking forward to constantly undressing your baby? Zipease baby rompers are a great solution, making diaper changes super simple without having to completely undress your little one. Simply unzip the romper and you’re set for a fast and easy diaper change.

Looking for a realistic solution for clearing your baby’s nose? Trust us when we say that you don’t have to resort to those awkward, uncomfortable nose suction bulbs. Boogie wipes make removing boogers simple and painless. These wipes contain a saline formula that makes it easy to get rid of the snot in your little one’s nose. They’re available in a variety of scents, so find one that works best for you and stock up! You will find that you always need these on hand.
Zoli Buzz B Nail Trimmer
If you’ve ever tried to trim a baby’s nails using nail clippers, you know how difficult and potentially painful it can be for your little one. But trimming their nails is a must- you certainly don’t want them scratching themselves. Enter the Zoli Buzz B nail trimmer. This handy tool makes it easy to file your baby’s nails without the possibility of accidentally snipping their fingertips.
Once your baby is old enough to start eating on their own, you’re going to find that a lot of food gets lost on the way from the high chair tray to their mouth. We highly recommend getting a few tray bibs. These bibs are made of heavy duty silicone and feature a pocket at the bottom, making it the perfect place to catch all that food that is sure to fall. Whereas classic bibs made from cloth easily stain, these are much easier to wipe down and reuse time and time again.
Suction Mealtime Mats
Speaking of mealtime, right around the same time that they start to self feed, they’re going to learn about the wonders of throwing their plates, bowls and cups on the floor. Eliminate any potential disasters by getting a few suction mealtime mats! These make it easy to give your little one the ability to self feed, providing various sections for the different kinds of food you’re giving them, while also suctioning down to the table or highchair tray.
Parenthood is going to be one of the most unique experiences of your life, and ensuring that you’re well equipped with all of the necessary equipment and tools is sure to make it a bit easier. Be sure to grab all of your essentials!
