You may have noticed that there have been several posts about babies here on the blog of late. No, this is not because I am pregnant. (I’m NOT, by the way, not pregnant.) No, this is also not because I have baby fever! But there are many people in my life right now who have just given birth or who are preparing to give birth, so I’m simply trying to be as helpful as possible when it comes to preparation. Even though we all know you can never be fully prepared for a new baby…we can certainly try when it comes to baby products!
It seems like we are always on the lookout for the next great baby product to simplify life as a parent. I’ve been to a lot of baby showers here of late, and there are some really neat items on the market! But what are some of the best, tried and true, actual genius baby products that every parent needs to keep in their arsenal of tools? Take a look at these top 6 favorite baby products that are nothing short of genius.
Owlet Smart Sock
Having the ability to monitor and keep an eye on your child is a great way to give parents some peace of mind. 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!
With each coming year, you can bet your baby is going to need a whole new set of baby gear. Whether it’s new baby clothes, new toys, new eating utensils, and even new gadgets to help mom, your research of what’s new on the market will never end as your baby grows. You’ll notice your baby getting busier with each coming year, as will you. Whether it’s helping you or helping your baby cross a new milestone, here is a list of products to keep an eye on for the both of you.
At some point in the coming year, your little one will no longer need to lay down as she’ll master the skill of holding her head up. Once she can hold her head up, life will get a little easier because you’ll be able to have your hands free more. Errands such as going to the grocery store will feel like a breeze when you use helpful gadgets such as a cart cover. You’ll avoid germs with shopping cart covers at Binxy Baby as they keep your baby safely in the shopping cart face-to-face with you while having a little cushion for comfort.
If your baby is going to be introduced to solid foods this year, you can bet you’ll need a table setting for her high chair along with some bibs to help with the mess. Plates that come with suction cups are great at keeping the messes to a minimum since they hold the plates in place and avoid them getting bumped or knocked off. Also, ergonomic utensils can teach your baby how to feel comfortable holding a spoon now rather than later. Even if she’s not feeding herself, you can start teaching her how to coordinate between her hand and mouth.
