3-Stage Baby Bath
A baby bathtub is one of the best baby products you can buy for that first year (and beyond). Wet babies are slippery babies—but with the Boon Soak, you can bathe your little one stress-free, thanks to the non-slip foam pads. Even cooler: The color-changing drain helps you find the perfect water temperature to ensure it’s not too hot for your sensitive little one. It also conveniently fits into most double sinks, has no pesky germ-collecting crevices to worry about, and adjusts to three different positions to keep pace with your growing child. No wonder it made our list of best baby items for the 2019 Best of Baby Awards.
Buy it: Boon Soak 3-Stage Bathtub, starting from $29, Amazon.com
Wireless In-Bra Breast Pump
Say hello to the first-ever all-in-one wearable breast pump. The hands-free design makes it one of the best, most innovative baby products around. The wireless pump slips right into your bra and can be discreetly worn anywhere or in any position. (Yep, you can even wear it lying down!) It’s battery-charged, super-quiet, totally leakproof and connects to an app for smart pumping and tracking. And really, that’s just the start—check out the website to learn even more about all the revolutionary features.
Buy it: Willow Pump 2.0, $500, WillowPump.com
Souped-Up Baby Food Maker
Overwhelmed at the thought of making all your own baby food? This do-it-all device (another 2019 Best of Baby winner) is here to change your mind. It blends, steams and purees to your heart’s content, which majorly simplifies the process. It works with meat (even fish!) plus fruits and vegetables, and tackles everything from cooking to defrosting and reheating. We’re all here for baby products that make parents’ lives even a little easier.
Buy it: BEABA Babycook 4 in 1 Steam Cooker & Blender, $150, Amazon.com
Chic Nursing Cover
On the hunt for the best baby gear for breastfeeding? This item really has you covered. The versatile piece of fabric isn’t just a nursing cover; it also works as a carseat canopy, stroller cover, shopping cart cover, high chair cover—you name it. Not only can you wear it as an infinity scarf when not in use, but you’ll actually want to, thanks to the brand’s seemingly endless array of cute patterns.
Buy it: Copper Pearl Baby Car Seat Canopy and Nursing Cover, $25, Amazon.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, all without having to head to the kitchen. This top bottle warmer has been a baby must-have ever since.
Buy it: Kiinde Kozii Baby Bottle Warmer and Breast Milk Warmer, $60 Amazon.com
Bottle for Breastfeeding Mamas
Have you ever seen a baby bottle quite like this? nanobébé helps mimic the feel of nursing with its dome-shaped, rounded design, which helps prevent confusion and latching problems in babies transitioning between breast and bottle. But 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 nutrients in the process.
Buy it: nanobébé Breastmilk Baby Bottle, $11, Amazon.com
Why are we obsessed with Parker Baby Co.’s 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, they use adjustable snaps instead of Velcro or magnet closures—meaning baby won’t be able to pull it off. Buh-bye drool stains, hello cuteness.
Buy it: Parker Baby Co. Bandana Drool Bibs, $15 for a set of 4, Amazon.com
Multipurpose Pacifier Protector
While the bblüv Üvi 4-in-1 Portable UV 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). Heck, you can even use it to sterilize a toothbrush or teething toy. All you need are batteries and you’ll be on your way to carefree cleaning. Let’s hear it for multipurpose baby products!
Buy it: bblü Üvi 4-in-1 Portable UV Sterilizer, $27, Amazon.com
Super-Versatile High Chair
As you start to stockpile baby products, it’s easy for your house to feel like a colorful carnival scene. Good news: Bulky high chairs patterned with cartoon animals aren’t your only option—especially now that there’s The Chair from Lalo. This artsy high chair has a minimalist design we’re seriously swooning over. The modern color options are also so refreshing, but the design-forward look is only part of the appeal. The high chair converts into a play chair when baby gets older. Are you surprised The Chair keeps selling out? (All the more reason to grab yours ASAP!)

Cloth Diapers That Grow with Baby

Stylish Diaper Bag That's Still Practical
You’re probably already familiar with Freshly Picked baby shoes—those vegan leather moccasins with adorable patterns that every parent is scrambling to get their hands on. Now, the brand has upped their game, debuting diaper bags with just as much function as form. Details we love include the wipeable interior, the magnetic close and the three ways to wear it. By the way, it has 10 pockets and comes with a changing pad. Because the best baby products are fashionable and functional.
