Raising kids is hard work. Satisfying work, but hard work. And no convertible stroller, diaper bag, or bath toy can change this. What parenting gear can do, however, is make some aspect of taking care of a tiny, helpless human a little less stressful. To help soothe them a little bit better, to help entertain them a little bit more, to help give you a little more peace of mind. The problem is, there are so many new parenting products coming out that it’s impossible to keep track of them all. That’s why we wanted to start highlighting some new releases that we found exciting. Maybe they’ll help you in some way. Take a look.
Nanobébé Breastmilk Bottles
Nanobébé’s breastmilk bottles have a hemispherical shape that spreads the milk into a thin layer, so it cools twice as quickly and stifles bacterial growth that makes the milk less nutritious and immunological. The domed shape is also stackable, and easier for babies to hold when they’re ready to self-feed. The entire bottle separates into three dishwasher-safe pieces, and works seamlessly with accessories such as a bottle warmer and sterilizer.
raybaby Baby Monitor
This baby monitor includes standard features like a camera and two-way audio, but its non-standard features are what we found so intriguing. Radar sensors track chest movement and sleep states, allowing you to know your baby’s current state of wakefulness and, because there’s an app that collects of the data, long-term trends. That app will also alert you to irregular breathing and can even make recommendations around sleep training.
bblüv Üvi 4-in-1 Portable UV Sterilizer, Cleaner, and Sanitizer
This battery-powered device uses ultraviolet light to eliminate germs from pacifiers, baby bottles, bottle nipples, and sippy spouts. You won’t need to pack as many back-ups because you’ll be able to quickly and easily sanitize on the go.
It may seem like overkill to put Bluetooth in a pacifier and maybe it is. But consider that this device constantly monitors your baby’s temperature. The companion app keeps records, giving you a snapshot of your child’s well-being in time. And if your kid is a thrower, you can use the app to sound a tone that makes it easy to find.
beanko Changing System
Given the notorious lack of public changing stations in men’s rooms, this foldable, all-in-one system is a lifesaver. It straps to a seat in your car and opens, revealing storage compartments on the vertical section and a flat changing area on the horizontal section.
bloom Retro Solid Wood Crib
We dig the style of this solid beechwood crib, which features an oak finish and slightly curved design. That it can be adjusted to be a bassinet, crib, and toddler bed, makes it useful for kids from newborns to five-year-olds.
