Hot Baby Products From The New York Baby Show
Yesterday, I spent the (very rainy) day in NYC at the annual New York Baby Show. I got to see the latest products and services available to parents in New York — and nationwide. These are my picks for the hottest things there — because they're new, different and useful for new parents.
What's your favorite baby gear item?
This lightweight stroller was the star of the show! It's only 11 pounds, folds up easily and comes in some eye-catching, vibrant colors. $280, Amazon.com
Some baby carriers take up the whole diaper bag when you're not using them. This one rolls up teeny. Tucked inside its pouch, it doesn't take up more space than a water bottle would. $55, BityBean.com
This new app literally lets you ping your doctor for answers and advice. Unlike text messaging and email, it's secure, so your medical information stays private. According to the app makers, parents and doctors are getting on board and love it. Free on App Store and Google Play, PingMD.com
Chicco's infant seat, the KeyFit, is already a hit with new parents, but what's next? The new NextFit is for older babies and toddlers who've outgrown an infant seat and promises to be just as easy to install and use as its predecessor. $300, BabiesRUs.com
This sturdy new stroller has a ton of features that make it easy to use, like an adjustable handle. It folds flat and stands up while folded— great for storing in a small (or dirty!) space. $300, ShopNuna.com
Food pouches are a hit with babies — and older kids too! But what if you DIY? You can just spoon purees or smoothies right into these pouches, and your kid can use them just like store-bought pouches. They’re reusable and dishwasher safe. Less waste! $10 for 3, EZSqueezees.com
