Check out the latest, greatest baby gear we’re loving right now.
BABY BATH FOR EASY TRAVEL
Forget leaning over the tub: The Puj Tub helps you bathe baby in any sink—and we mean any. The tub’s flexible material forms to fit your sink, the one at your in-laws’, the hotel’s—wherever. And transporting it to these places isn’t a problem, since it lies flat in your trunk and is lightweight.
Medela Symphony Breast Pump
Medela’s Symphony® Breast Pump is a hospital grade breast pump designed with innovative 2-Phase Expression technology, which is engineered to closely mimic a baby’s nursing patterns and rhythms while helping moms effectively initiate and maintain their breast milk supply. With the ability to successfully accommodate multiple users, Symphony is a uniquely designed double breast pump featuring two separate membrane units for convenient, ultra-easy switching between single and double pumping, based on mom’s preference.
Symphony is built with innovation in mind and its breast pump kit (sold separately) is fully independent from its pumping mechanism and protected from milk overflow – a feature that Medela refers to as Overflow Protection – through a specially designed membrane. Comfortable pumping and whisper-quiet operation provide discretion and an enhanced pumping experience, no matter what time of day or night it is.
What’s Included: (1) Symphony Breast Pump; (1) Symphony 2.0 Program Card; a computer chip that stores all information about the pumping program; (1) Container Stand; (1) Quick Start Card; (1) Card/Cord Protector; (1) Instructions for Use; 3-Year Limited Warranty
Please note that the Symphony Double Pumping Kit is required to get started and is sold separately. This kit contains: (1) set of PersonalFit™ Breast Shields – 24mm size; (2) 5-oz. 150 mL breast milk bottles** with lids; (2) PersonalFit™ Breast Shield connectors; (2) tubes; (2) valves; (4) membranes; (2) membrane caps; (2) protective membranes; (1) Instructions for Use
Easy one-touch letdown button allows moms to quickly return to the stimulation phase while pumping. Symphony promotes the initiation and maintenance of your breast milk supply, even in situations where direct breastfeeding is not possible or during absences away from your baby. Though it is a hospital grade breast pump, Symphony and its parts are easy to clean so you can conveniently continue to feed your little one breast milk for as long as you choose.
SOUPED-UP BABY-FOOD MAKER
Overwhelmed at the thought of making all your own baby food? This Cuisinart Baby Food Maker And Bottle Warmer is here to change your mind, doing the work of multiple appliances. It chops, steams and purees all in the same bowl (no steamer basket necessary), simplifying the process and leaving less to clean.
INCOGNITO NURSING COVER
Cute scarf, huh? Double-loop the Itzy Ritzy Nursing Happens scarf around your neck, or wear it as a capelet. When you’re ready to nurse, unwrap the fabric, draping it over one shoulder and around your body for complete coverage.
HANDY BREAST MILK WARMER
The Kiinde Kozii thaws and warms breast milk without breaking down its nutrients (as the microwave or too-hot water can). It was designed by a dad so he could do middle-of-the-night feedings while his wife slept—without having to head to the kitchen.
BOTTLE FOR BREASTFEEDING MAMAS
Nanobébé helps mimic the feel of nursing with its dome-shaped, rounded design. It’s actually concave on the inside, making it easy for baby to grasp and learn to self-feed. An adaptor allows you to pump right into the bottle from most breast pumps, better preserving your milk’s nutriets in the process.
We’re loving The Good Baby Bandana Drool Bibs—they actually add to the cute outfits you spent so much time picking out for baby. They’re made from organic cotton, and unlike other bandana-style bibs, there’s no velcro or magnet closures. Adjustable snaps mean baby shouldn’t pull it off—or get irritated.
While the bbluv Uvi 4-in-1 Sterilizer can certainly be used as your go-to pacifier case, it’s so much more. Attach it to the top of a bottle or sippy cup for a quick clean (we’re talking three minutes). All you need are two two AAA batteries.
SUPER-VERSATILE HIGH CHAIR
It’s the only high chair you’ll ever need—and we’re not just saying that. Adjust the Peg Perego Siesta’s nine height and five recline positions to accommodate your child as she grows from infant to toddler. It folds almost completely flat, so it’s easy to store out of sight. The best part: The fabric is strain resistant.
CLOTH DIAPERS THAT GROW WITH BABY
These cloth diapers go the distance. Bambino Mio Miosolo’s easy-to-remove insert keeps baby dry for four hours. The crossover Velcro tabs and adjustable snaps ensure a snug fit for babies of any age, so you’ll use them again and again and again.
DESIGNER DIAPER BAG THAT’S ACTUALLY PRACTICAL
Everybody knows Freshly Picked: those vegan leather moccasins with adorable patterns and prints for baby. But last spring, they upped their game just for you, debuting a diaper bag with just as much function as form. Details we love include the wipeable exterior and interior, the magnetic close and the three ways to wear it. By the way, it has 10 pockets.
Whether you live in a big city, travel often or simply prefer a lighter weight stroller, the Babyzen Yoyo+ Complete will serve you well. The signature accordion fold means it opens and closes fast, and it steers smoothly and easily even when you use one hand.
BEST STROLLER FOR SIBLINGS OF DIFFERENT AGES
Whether you have a baby and a toddler or twins, the Bugaboo Donkey2 Duo is worth the splurge. This double is one of the few that allows you to fit a bassinet attachment and a toddler seat side-by-side, so both kids can receive equal attention.
DIAPER BAG THAT PASSES FOR A CUTE TOTE
Your diaper bag doesn’t need to scream “baby,” especially if you want to use it post-diaper phase. The Roma diaper bag from 7 A.M. Enfant has enough space to store diapers, wipes and a few extra baby items, but its mild color options make it perfect to use for the gym or work when baby’s grown.
BEST STROLLER FOR BIG TRIPS
Whether it’s a day at the beach or a cross-country trip, the Austlen Entourage will haul all your stuff, and two kids. Multiple storage basket options plus an expandable base allows the Entourage to safely carry up to 150 pounds of cargo.
MACHINE-WASHABLE ACTIVITY MAT
Designed to use anywhere—the beach, the park or your play room—the Nook LilyPad Playmat is incredibly versatile thanks to a simple design. Even better: it’s non-toxic, made from organic cotton and eucalyptus (super soft!), and is machine-washable.
BEST NO-FAIL INFANT SEAT
The Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant car seat is actually easy to install correctly. You can adjust the straps with one hand, and it has side bubble levels to let you know you’ve put it in at the proper angle (a common place to make a mistake).
HIGH TECH BOOSTER SEAT
The Cybex Sirona M is currently the only car seat on the market to incorporate Sensorsafe 2.0 technology, alerting you if you’ve accidentally left your little one in the car—and also if your child unbuckles themselves while the vehicle is in motion, the backseat temperature is too hot or cold, or your child has been sitting too long.
EASY WAY TO CARRY BABY
The Baby K’tan carrier eliminates the complications and frustrations of babywearing with a design that allows you to slip it on like a t-shirt. Choose from five different wearing positions depending on baby’s age.
MOST COMFORTABLE NURSING PILLOW
This looks a little different from other nursing pillows—the unique square shape provides more surface area for your baby to get comfy. And that won’t be hard to do; the kapok filling feels like memory foam.
4mom’s Breeze really is a breeze to put together. Just push down at the center of the playard and throw in the mat, and baby has a place to play wherever you go.
SWING AND BOUNCER COMBO
Can’t decide between a swing and a bouncer (or don’t have space for both of them)? The 4moms mamaRoo 4 covers both types of motions. Actually, it offers five motions, moving like you do to soothe baby when you need a break.
ECO-FRIENDLY SWADDLING BLANKET
This Instagram-worthy swaddle routinely sells out, and thanks to the super soft, pre-washed, organic muslin cotton, we can understand why. The more you wash them, the softer they get.
ON-THE-GO BABY MONITOR
Maybe you need to run downstairs or switch the laundry while baby’s sleeping. You’ll only be gone a second; is it worth bringing the monitor? Project Nursery is here to alleviate your concerns with a more convenient mini monitor. The little 1.5-inch screen clips right onto your clothes, and is included with the main 5-inch screen in the High Definition Baby Monitor system.
BABY CLOTHES TO MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER
With normal zippers, snaps and buttons, dressing baby can be a battle. Magnificent Baby’s Magnetic Me line of clothes has magnetic fasteners so you don’t fumble with teeny snaps or pinch baby’s skin.
