Baby bath for easy travel
Forget leaning over the tub: The Puj Flyte 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. $35, PujBaby.com

Ingenious breast pump
Not only does the Lansinoh Affinity Double Electric breast pump do the most important thing — efficiently express breast milk right into baby’s bottles — but it was designed with comfort in mind. Check out the soft breast flanges and post-pump gel packs for cooling relief. Oh, and note the price — it's more affordable than some other double electrics. $123, Amazon.com

Incognito nursing cover
Cute scarf, huh? Well, the Pirose Motherhood is actually a nursing cover that lets you discreetly feed baby in public, but then can be twisted up to wear as a scarf or shawl. With an array of chic patterns, you'll want to wear this even after you've weaned baby. $40, RenoRose.com

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. $70, Kiinde.com

Bottle for breastfeeding mamas
The Medela Calma helps baby transition from breast to bottle (and back again) with a flow-control valve that lets baby drink, pause and breathe at his own pace. The vented nipple helps prevent him from swallowing air. $18, MedelaBreastfeedingUS.com

Souped-up baby-food maker
Want to make baby’s food without dirtying a million pans in the process? The Beaba Babycook Pro 2X is a compact, countertop appliance that steams, blends and reheats baby’s food simply with a turn and a push of a button — and with two bowls, you can make twice the food in the same amount of time. Available in winter 2012, BeabaUSA.com

Stylish bibs
We’re loving Bumkins' stylish line of bibs. Believe us, the catchall pocket is a must-have for keeping at least some of the food from getting on the floor (or piling up on baby’s lap!). We also like that you can wipe it clean or throw it in the washing machine. $5, Bumkins.com

Paci protector
If you're a germaphobe (no judgment here), get a little extra sanitization security from the Pipila Portable UV pacifier sterilizer. It cleans baby's binky in minutes, and it's tiny enough to toss in the diaper bag. $35, Target.com

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 height and recline positions to accommodate your child as she grows from infant to toddler — and to different table heights. It folds almost completely flat, so it’s easy to store out of sight. $300, Amazon.com

Cloth diapers that grow with baby
These cloth diapers go the distance. Bambino 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. $25, AlbeeBaby.com

Designer diaper bag you can afford
Even if you’re on a budget, you can still swing a designer diaper bag. The Jonathan Adler collection from Skip Hop comes in an assortment of chic patterns and sizes. We love the Duo with its 11 compartments and pull-out changing mat. $75, SkipHop.com

Easy-to-use stroller
The B-Agile from Britax is one of our favorite new strollers. And it’s perfect for city moms — or anyone with limited space. You can fold it completely flat with one hand. And when you’re on the go, it’s got plenty of storage space for all of baby's belongings. $189, Amazon.com

Sturdy stroller for twins
Got twins? The phil&teds Explorer is worth the splurge! This tandem is super-sturdy and fits two children from newborn to age six, so it’s probably the only stroller you’ll ever need to buy. $500, PhilandTeds.com

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. $78, 7AMEnfant.com

Best stroller for siblings of different ages
Baby Trend's Sit-N-Stand Double stroller holds two infant car seats in different arrangements (forward, backward, facing each other or not). Or put one kid in the car seat and another in the stroller seat. An older kid can even stand in back while the baby rides along. $180, Amazon.com

Best no-fail infant seat
The Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant car seat is easy to install correctly (you’re welcome). 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!). $190, BabiesRUs.com

Pimped-out booster car seat
Pimp your big kid's ride! The Evenflo Big Kid DLX Booster car seat, perfect for kids 40 to 100 pounds and 38 to 57 inches tall, has reading lights, two cup holders and an activity tray to keep kids happy during long car rides. $60, Walmart.com

Easy way to carry baby
It looks like your favorite infinity scarf, but the Baby K'tan carrier doesn’t make a style statement — it keeps you and baby close. Wear it eight different ways without any complicated wrapping techniques (we swear!). $50, BabyKtan.com

Most comfortable baby carrier
We’re talking about comfort for both you and baby! The Ergobaby Performance baby carrier lets you carry baby on the front, back or on your hip without putting strain on your back or shoulders. Baby will dig the breathable fabric and being held in a seated position (instead of dangling!). We love that this has a sportier look than the company's original carrier. $135, Ergobaby.com

Machine-washable playard
A playard you can wash? Finally! The fabric on the InGenuity Washable playard can be zipped off, thrown in the washing machine and then zipped back on. It's life-saving, considering the grime that can build up. $160, BuybuyBaby.com

Super-simple playard
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. $300, 4moms.com
