You want the best stroller, the best high chair, and all of the other best baby gear. You are not on your own because every parent has a few baby products they absolutely can’t live without so the community is here to help.
We asked our editors and readers to give us the lowdown on their must-have baby products. We asked about baby strollers, baby bottles, baby seats and much more. Then we did a bunch of research online as well as some hands-on testing of many of the products ourselves. These are some of our must-haves.
Favorite Lounge Product
The DockATot has been a miracle for many families. It comes at a high price, but many feel the expense is worth every penny once they get a hands-free break when their little one starts chilling my themselves, safely.
Favorite Nighttime Gear
Merlin Magic Sleep Suit
All parents seek that magic cure for sleep. This sleep is close. Little ones that are out of the swaddle stage and still jerking themselves awake, will find comfort in the fact that their arms and legs stay put all night. It is time to give up the suit when your little one starts to roll over.
Favorite Washing & Drying Gear
Boon Drying Rack & Accessories
Not only does this drying rack add some cool color to your kitchen, it is strong enough to make it through 5+years of baby life. Plus, it is built to withstand the dishwasher. A must-have on every registry.
Favorite Convertible Stroller
Baby Jogger City Select Lux
Although expensive, this stroller is meant to last for years because it grows with you. Some of our favorite features include awesome multi-service tires, a narrow width, the easy addition of a second seat, lots of accessories and easy to fold behaviors. We would buy this over and over.
Best Baby Tech
Owlet Smart Sock Baby Monitor
For parents that need a little reassurance that their little one is still moving and breathing, this is a great tech choice. Just slide on the little sock to get real-time data on your baby’s heart rate, oxygen and more.
Best Baby Swing
The rockaRoo offers a safe place to put your baby to free up your hands for a bit and provides a front to back soothing motion, similar to the motion of a rocking horse. The best part…it is compact – coming in at 1/3 the size of your typical baby swing.
