Levana Era Baby Monitor
Wish you could snap a candid photo of baby while she’s (finally) sleeping peacefully, but don’t have your camera or phone ready in time? This new monitor gives you the option! The Era allows you to take photos and video, and upload it to your computer later. It also plays lullabies and comes with a quad screen for multiple views (if you have multiple cameras). $145, MyLevana.com

4moms Origami Stroller
Okay, so we know strollers aren’t usually considered gadgets, but we think this one is an exception. The Origami stroller is a power-folding stroller — that’s right, you push a button, and it unfolds by itself. It also has a child safety sensor and an LCD screen that tracks your speed and temperature. Even better: It can also charge your phone. $850, 4moms.com

Pipila Portable UV Pacifier Sterilizer
This is a pretty handy gadget for all you germaphobes out there who need a little extra security when it comes to sanitizing. Take this UV sterilizer with you everywhere, just in case baby drops his binky — it’ll be clean in minutes! $35, Target.com

Glo by Boon
Forget your old night-light — this one is a modern work of art! Yup, those balls glow in the dark — and your toddler can even take them off and play with them. Wildly cool! $85, BoonInc.com

Simplisse Double Electric Breast Pump
Pumping is sometimes uncomfortable, but with this electric breast pump, it might be more relaxing. It has a compression technology that’s gentler than other pumps’ tugging and pulling. $225, Amazon.com

Mixie Formula Mixing Baby Bottle
Finally! A way to prep baby’s bottle, before you head out the door for an outing. Mixie’s air-tight compartment holds formula powder right inside the bottle. When it’s feeding time, push a button to release the powder into the water and simply shake to combine. No pouring or mess while you’re on the go! $22, MixieBaby.com

Kiinde Kozii Breastmilk Warmer
This gadget lets you thaw and warm breast milk without breaking down its nutrients (as the microwave or too-hot water can). Keep it in the nursery (with a mini fridge, of course), so dad doesn’t have to run to the kitchen for middle-of-the night feedings while you sleep. $70, Kiinde.com

The First Years Safety Shield Digital Video Monitor
We love this monitor’s innovative zone feature. Parents can create a “safe zone” around the crib so that if a pet (or anything else!) enters the area or if baby tries to climb, an alarm will go off. It also comes with a color touch screen, a feeding timer and a nursery thermometer. $249, TheFirstYears.com

Beaba Babycook Pro2X
Want to make baby’s food but don’t want to dirty a million dishes and pans in the process? The Babycook is a compact, countertop appliance that steams, blends and reheats baby’s food all in the same container — and this new version has two bowls, so you can make twice the food in the same amount of time. Available Fall 2012, BeabaUsa.com

Ubimed Cleanoz Nasal Aspirator

This is the most high-tech nasal aspirator we've seen! The Cleanoz gently clears baby's sinuses and has disposable tips so you don’t retransmit germs. It’s battery-operated and empties in seconds too. $30, Ubimed.com
