Black Friday and Cyber Monday Baby Deals
Talk about the gift that keeps on giving: This highchair, normally $249, can be used by babies starting at six months old and will eventually convert to an adult-sized dining chair.
This elegant, understated chair is made from European beech wood, which eco-minded parents will be happy to know is sustainably cultivated. The cushion can be wiped clean and the dishwasher-safe plastic tray cover pops off easily with one hand. The restraint can be switched between five-point (for younger babies) and three-point (for toddlers), and the height can be quickly adjusted without extra tools. The entire tray can also be removed so your little one can sit right at the table, with the harness offering extra security if needed.
The list price is $130, so scoop up this foldable baby jumper—currently on sale for $70.49—before it hops away.
With the introduction of a bounce counter, Skip Hop has gamified the baby activity center experience: Once your little one hits 100 jumps, he or she is rewarded with lights, music and applause. The seat rotates a full 360 degrees to keep your baby entertained and interested, and there are five different height levels to accommodate growing kids. The clip-on, removable toys include teethers, a mirror and a rattle.
Chilly temperatures are upon us and this three-pack of high-quality jammies has a regular list price of $26.
We’re betting you wore Carter’s as a kid—and your parents probably did, too. These cozy footie pajamas have a snap to help keep the zipper in place and grippy soles to prevent new walkers from wiping out. We think these would look adorable on kids of all genders, but if you’re more into pink, purple and red, those are on sale as well.
Protect your baby from the inevitable tumbles with this reversible, waterproof giraffe-themed play mat, which is normally $69.
Measuring approximately 6 feet by 6.5 feet, this BPA-free play mat will give babies and toddlers plenty of room to practice crawling or walking. It’s also waterproof, and the anti-slip material can be cleaned easily with a damp cloth. And when play time has ended, there are no niggly little pieces to futz with—you can simply fold it and stash it away.
Usually $30, this potty chair helps build bathroom excitement with its realistic-looking design and flushing sound effects.
It’s never too early to get your baby or toddler psyched to become potty-trained, and this seat looks remarkably like a grown-up toilet. Press a button and you’ll get a flushing sound (don’t worry, the contents stay put) and the tank at the back can be used to store a pack of wipes. There’s also a built-in splash guard to contain mess, rubber feet to prevent slipping and a removable bowl that’s as easy to clean as simpler styles.
This kit typically costs $28 and comes with all the goods you need to keep your baby full and fuss-free: Three bottles, two nipples (one slow and one medium flow) and two pacifiers.
Playtex designed their VentAire line for infants who switch frequently between nursing and bottle-feeding, since the large silicone nipple encourages the wide latch that’s needed to breastfeed successfully. Two things that may prevent gas and spitting up: The angled design that allows for more upright feeding, and the vent at the back that prevents bubbles from forming, which can cause monster baby burps from taking in too much air.
Basically two sanity-saving products in one, this comprehensive swing normally costs almost $200.
This product lives up to its name: There are eight ways to swing (arch, swing, bounce, figure 8, circle, wave, zig-zag and sway) and two different directions, giving parents 16 movement options for soothing a grumpy baby. The seat pops off and can be used as a stand-alone rocker, saving you valuable floor space.
This ultra-compact baby swing, ideal for smaller spaces, is down from $159.99.
This five-speed baby swing is one-third the size of comparable swings. It’s plug and play. And it’s suitable for babies from birth until they weigh 25 pounds.
This baby monitor, which tracks your baby's heart rate and oxygen levels during sleep and keeps parents up to date, is normally $299.99.
The Owlet is pretty much never on sale. So if you’ve been coveting this baby monitor, which lets you track your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels from anywhere, get it now. You get three washable smart socks that you wrap around you baby’s foot; they are wireless and connect to a base station.
This Nanit baby monitor gives you real-time motion alerts, and this very tricked-out model is regularly $379.99.
Honestly, we’re pretty blown away by the picture quality you get with the Nanit. This model comes with a floor stand that can switch between wall leaning and freestanding mode for total flexibility. Plus, you get real-time sound and motion notifications with adjustable sensitivity.
This wonderful wall-mounted baby monitor is normally $299.99 and is now $239. It tracks baby sleep and even gives you sleep guidance.
Nanit tracks sound and motion, as well as temperature and humidity. It has two-way audio, background audio, and remote viewing from anywhere you are. And most importantly, you can see your baby with perfect clarity.
Normally about $150, this baby monitor, which has a generous range of 900 feet, is currently on sale.
This monitor has helpful features such as room-temperature monitoring, two-way communication (so you can talk to your baby if it helps her settle), night light and the ability to play soothing lullabies. If you’re puzzling over what “DECT” stands for, that would be Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications, which is a type of technology that started in Europe and is known for not only eliminating interference with other devices (no more horrible feedback!), but also for having a wider range than Bluetooth. The parent unit also has the option for a vibrating alert, which can be a bit less jarring when you’re finally relaxing post-bedtime.
One of the most easy-to-use baby food makers is down from $149.95.
This baby food maker both steams and blender anything your little gourmand could want. It steam cooks, blends and reheats all-in-one, in 15 minutes.
Choose the blue lid and you'll get a sweet little deal on this popular stainless-steel toddler cup, which is normally around $17.
Cold liquids will stay cool for up to 15 hours in this insulated cup, which has a round design that’s best suited for kids 12 months and older. (A similar training version with handles is available for kids 6 months and up.) The top is designed to be spillproof (because let’s face it, toddlers are slobs) and encourages a natural sipping motion rather than sucking from a spout, which may help with proper oral development.A pop-off lid keeps the drinking edge clean until the cup is ready to be used. Parents will appreciate that the cup has just three parts, all of which can be cleaned on the top rack of the dishwasher.
The $180 diaper bag, with a best-in-class portable changing station, is one great investment.
This vegan diaper bag, which doubles as a fully-functional diaper changing station, will last you forever. Best of all, it looks like a regular backpack. And because we, as parents, care about this stuff, it’s worth noting that the Paperclip Each is made using recycled plastic, from wipe-clean vegan leather.
The beloved baby bouncer is down from its regular price of $105.
This baby bouncer comes fully loaded with lights, sounds, and music that reward your baby’s jump. You get 360 degrees of play, including peek-a-boo tiger, bat-at monkey, and a lizard rattle.
This sleek Italian stroller is currently about 31 percent off its $350 list price.
Part of a travel system, this stroller is designed to work seamlessly with the brand’s Primo Viaggio 4/35 car seat, and uses retractable anchors rather than cumbersome adapters. It’s easy to maneuver thanks to its lightweight aluminum chassis, wheels with ball bearings and small footprint.
Usually around $400, this comprehensive travel system includes Maxi-Cosi's lightweight Mico 30 car seat, stay-in-car base, stroller frame and ultra-adjustable seat.
Unlike some strollers that require parents to use a separate bassinet for newborns, the Zelia’s seat can be used in “carriage mode” to function in a similar way that allows baby to lie flat. When your child is ready to ride sitting up, it can be tilted upwards, and in both modes the seat can face either in or out. When paired with the car seat, the stroller can be used starting at just five pounds, and the stroller seat’s weight limit goes up to 50 pounds, so you’ll get plenty of use from these wheels. The Mico car seat weighs around 10 pounds, making it easy to tote around, and has LATCH vehicle connectors, self-wicking fabric and a “Cozi-Dozi” head and body support that cradles smaller babies.
You'd typically pay $280 for this workhorse stroller, which has a 55-pound weight limit and can easily convert from a single to a double stroller.
The seat on this stroller can be used as a supportive, reclined spot for an infant or a more upright position that will satisfy a curious older baby or toddler. With both options, you can also choose to have your kiddo facing you or out towards the world. If you need to add space for a second child, the frame expands easily with just two quick maneuvers to accommodate another seat, which can be bought separately. Other useful features include a peekaboo window, huge storage basket that expands to two feet long, and a three-position handlebar to accommodate caregivers’ varying heights. The stroller also offers a smooth ride thanks to big cruiser tires and rear-wheel suspension that helps minimize bumps. If you pair it with Evenflo’s SafeMax or LiteMax car seat, you won’t need to worry about an adapter.
We love this jogging stroller, and it's discounted from its regular $449.99 price.
This jogging stroller fits kids up to 75 pounds, from birth on when you use a car seat. It has a locking swivel front wheel, air filled tires, and mountain bike style suspension system for easy maneuverability when you’re running, hiking, or just cruising around town. And the handlebar is fully adjustable, with nine different positions and a wrist strap.
The older model of this insanely durable jogging and travel stroller is down from $359.99.
Do you need the latest and greatest stroller model? That’s up to you. But if you’re into saving a few bucks, check out this travel and jogging three-wheel stroller. It has a one-handed fold and terrain non flat tires with front wheel suspension. It has a 65 pound capacity.
This awesome jogging stroller, the best you can buy, is down from $479.95.
This jogging stroller has a capacity of 75 pounds, weighs only 25 pounds, has a single-handed fold, and large 16 inch rear wheels plus suspension for an ultra smooth ride whether you’re strolling or running.
This seat might be a behemoth, but thanks to Black Friday, its normally $300 price tag has gotten smaller.
Car seat installation can confound even experienced parents, but the brand’s ClickTight system, which makes a reassuring sound when the harness is properly tightened, helps make life easier. This seat can be used starting from five pounds rear-facing and up to 65 pounds forward facing, so its a worthy investment that will keep kids safe well past preschool. The Marathon also has 14 different harness positions (and no rethreading ever!) as well as 7 recline angles, so the fit feels infinitely customizable.
Black Friday is a great time to stock up on pricey baby gear, like this convertible car seat. It's normally $324.99.
We dig this convertible car seat because it’s easy to install, thanks to the ClickTight system. And you hear a clicking sound when the harness is tight enough, so you never need to worry about rethreading. It has two layers of side impact protection, a steel frame, and an impact absorbing base.
This top-rated car seat meets the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213, which is what you want, and it's normally $299.99.
You’ll get a solid decade of use out of this convertible car seat. It goes from rear-facing, to forward-facing harness car seat, to belt-positioning booster to backless belt-positioning booster seat. You can adjust the height of your harness and headrest to 10 positions in one motion. It fits kids up to 65 pounds and 49 inches.
This handy bag is regularly $52—time to click add to cart, since it's currently discounted.
Although the period of time when you need to haul around a massive car seat is relatively short, it can feel as endless as an afternoon at the DMV, especially when you’re the one doing the schlepping. Save your back and your sanity with this ergonomic option from J.L. Childress. Padded straps help protect your shoulders from future aches, and the protective foam interior keeps the car seat safe from unexpected bumps (which is key if you’re planning to check it). The bag is extra tall so it should fit most car seats, but if you’re traveling with an infant model and its base, you’ll need to remove the base and put on top of the seat inside the bag.
One of the best air purifiers you can buy is down from $229.99.
This air purifier lives up to its name, and then some. It has a four stage filtration system, lets you know air quality in real time, and captures and reduces allergens, volatile organic compounds and odor in the air.
Owning a u-shaped Boppy pillow is practically a legal requirement for new and expectant parents. They typically cost around $40, so now's a good time to pick one up.
Although the Boppy’s most talked-about use is as a pillow for breastfeeding or bottle-feeding, this cushion also works well for gross-motor activities like tummy time, propping and, eventually, sitting with support. (One thing the Boppy is never meant to be: A sleeping spot, so only use it with close supervision.) Sometimes companies only drop prices on their loudest prints, but this unisex jungle-theme fabric is as tasteful as they come. Both the pillow and cover are machine washable, and extra covers are also sold separately.
No, diaper pails are not sexy purchases. Yes, if your kid is in diapers, you need this Diaper Genie, down from $49.99.
This is the tallest version of the beloved Diaper Genie, so you don’t need to bend over to dispose of dirty diapers. You just use a foot pedal for hands-free diaper disposal. It also has a carbon filter to reduce stench further.
Regularly $34 but currently down to $19.33, we're betting this practical, classic-looking backpack will get use even after your baby is potty-trained.
The creator of this diaper bag backpack must be a parent. No one else could have come up with thoughtful details like a side slit (for dispensing tissues and wipes) and insulated pocket that holds three bottles and plenty of snacks. The zippered lower opening lets you quickly grab things that have settled to the bottom of the bag (usually it’s stuff you really need, like your kid’s lovey), and there’s a spot for mounting a USB charger so you can juice up your phone while you’re on the go. The bag also comes with a pair of sturdy straps that you can leave on your stroller handle and attach as needed.
This baby food maker does it all: It steams, purees, and blends. Plus, time-strapped parents can make up to one week’s worth of baby food ahead of time.
This bottle warmer both heats up formula or milk while simultaneously sterilizing pacifiers, and is normally $24.99.
Small enough to be at home in your nursery, this bottle warmer fits most standard-sized bottles. All you do is prefill the water vial to desired amount and then store it in warmer until you’re read to warm the bottle for your baby.
Traveling for the holidays? You need this baby bed, which is normally $70.
This handy baby sleeper is portable, folds flat, with handles for easy carrying. It can be used indoors or out, and is great for tummy time as well.
A sweet swing and a sweet deal, this soothing piece of gear normally costs $160.
Babies can be fusspots, so this swing has two different motions (side-to-side and head-to-toe), so you can experiment to see which movement your little one prefers. If your baby is on the peanut end of the spectrum, you can use the body insert and head support for a snug fit. There are six different speeds and plenty of songs and nature sounds to choose from.
Down from $35, this handy seat works as both a table booster and a simple floor chair.
Here’s a piece of gear with big-time longevity: It has a three-point harness and can be used from six months old all the way up to 37 pounds (so about age four). It’s lightweight—less than five pounds—and ideal for toting around, whether you’re eating at a restaurant, spending the night at Grandma’s or hanging out on the beach and need a pint-sized lounging spot. The tray can be removed and cleaned in the dishwasher, and the fabric is machine-washable.
This baby swing, which has your baby lying flat, features six settings and is normally $179.99.
The safest baby swing is one which has your baby lying flat, as opposed to being propped up. This Graco swing fits the bill. You can either plug it into an outlet, or batteries. It has a two-speed vibration, six swinging speeds, and plays classical melodies.
BabyBjörn's $240 bouncer is one the best investments you'll ever make. Babies love these things.
Soothe your baby with a natural rocking motion with this much-loved bouncer. it has three different height positions and one transport mode.
Unless you've been living in a cave, you know your baby needs daily tummy time, and this colorful essential (normally $60) can help make it more fun for everyone.
The play mats from Tiny Love strike a nice balance: They offer plenty of engaging toys and textures that will help encourage motor development, but aren’t so tricked-out they’ll cost a small fortune. This one comes in several different patterns (like arctic, woodland and graphic black-and-white) and includes detachable toys like a mirror and rattle that can be removed and used on a stroller or car seat handle. There are optional music sounds and lights, and parents will appreciate that the mat can be easily machine washed when the inevitable diaper blowouts happen.
This monitor, which usually retails for $150, gives you real-time details about your baby's breathing.
This monitor was developed by a nervous dad who wanted to be reassured about his daughter’s safety while she slept. Unlike other monitors of this type, the baby doesn’t need to wear anything or sleep on a special mat. Instead, the Cocoon Cam is installed on the long side of the crib using drywall anchors and screws (so it’s not well-suited for travel). It will send instant alerts if baby’s breathing changes, or she starts crying or waking up, and the live HD video and zoom capability provide an ultra-clear image. Parents also report that the company’s customer service is spot-on at resolving technical glitches.
How smart is this monitor? It will allow you to virtually designate a safe sleep zone, and alert you when your little one has moved out of it. Scoop it now, since it's normally $170.
This monitor comes with all the perks you’d expect at this price point, such as three-level zoom, two-way communication, night vision and room-temperature monitoring. Should your baby cry or babble during the night, the voice activation technology will automatically wake the screen on the parent unit, so you can check in. Although it’s only sold with one camera, parents have the option to add up to three more.
Currently deeply discounted, this do-it-all device is regularly close to $100.
Although VTech is known for their colorful, noisy toys, they also make a solid baby monitor. Even if your kiddo is roaming around the room, you’ll be able to spy easily since the camera has a generous range: 260 degrees side-to-side, and 23 degrees up and down, not to mention a zoom option. The talkback feature allows you to communicate with your little one if she’s having trouble settling down. The monitor also includes different soothing sounds such as lullabies, white noise and trickling stream, so you won’t need to worry about yet another device.
This baby carrier, which fits newborns without requiring an infant insert, is normally $179.
This baby carrier fits babies from birth to 48 months, with no separate insert needed. You can choose between all carry positions: face your baby in or out, or wear your baby on the hip or back. It has a UPF 50 sun hood for protection from the elements.
Made from cozy, machine-washable French terry cotton, this wrap has a touch of spandex to help keep its shape. It can be used for babies up to 35 pounds and has a “no-tie” style so you can spend less time futzing over getting the right fit.
When it gets cold out, you'll be deeply thankful for this car seat cover, which is normally $29.99.
This weather-resistant nylon car seat cover fits over your baby carrier or standard-sized stroller to keep your child warm and cozy.
Regularly $20, this middle-of-the-night lifesaver is actually three linens in one: A cotton-polyester wicking sheet, an absorbent middle layer and a vinyl waterproof pad at the bottom.
Picture this: Your baby pukes or pees during the wee (no pun intended) hours. With the Ultimate Crib Sheet, all you need to do is remove the top quick-change layer and the bed is ready to be used again.
Depending on the fabric, we've seen this posh-looking car seat cost upwards of $300, so it's worth picking up during Black Friday week.
This seat works for children from 14 to 40 pounds rear-facing, and 22 to 85 pounds if they’re looking forwards. When your baby is younger, you can use the LATCH connectors for straightforward installation. The harness and headrest can be easily adjusted with the seat installed, and you’ll also appreciate little things like harness hooks, which keep the straps out of the way as your child is getting in and out, and the built-in cupholder. And should motion sickness strike, the fabric is machine washable and can be unsnapped without pulling out the entire car seat (because really, puke is already stressful enough).
