7 Hottest Trends in Baby Gear

Fresh off the plane from the 2014 All Baby & Child Expo in Las Vegas — the largest baby show there is — we've rounded up the biggest trends in baby gear. This is the stuff you're going to want to register for this year.

Red, teal, magenta and gray

What stroller line wasn't available in this quartet of colors? (At the very least, we saw it from GB, Mutsy, 4Moms and UPPAbaby.) Expect the sidewalks to be filled with this color pallet in 2015. And the trend extends beyond strollers; we saw the same hues in other gear, including the BabyHome Dream cot.

Techie products

Here's the gear for smartphone-obsessed parents. The Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Smart Connect Cradle 'n Swing, 4Moms Momaroo 2015 and Summer Infant Baby Touch WiFi Monitor can all be controlled using an app on your phone.

Hedgehogs

Woodland animals are everywhere on baby gear. The standout newbie? The hedgehog, which has made his adorable way onto baby toys, backpacks, lunch boxes and more by SkipHop.

Grows with baby

Of course, there have always been products that grow with baby, but now we're really seeing longevity as a main focus of many different brands. The Oeuf Fawn — coming in 2015 — converts from a bassinet to a crib. Phil&teds and Stokke both have high chairs that become big kid chairs. Even feeding systems make the cut; the Kiinde Twist pouches can be used for breast milk initially and homemade baby food down the road.

Monsters

These guys definitely aren't hiding under the bed — we're seeing them everywhere! That includes on the Little Ashkim hooded towel and bath mitt, knit hats by Pebble and placemats by The Cibo (with a reservoir that hangs over the table to catch spills and crumbs!). Too cute to be scary.

Russian dolls

Needless to say, this one was unexpected. But it turns out Russian nesting dolls make pretty adorable prints for baby gear. Penny Scallan is launching a whole line of clothing and gear in this motif.

Denim

You may have seen denim on the runways, and now it's made its way to baby gear. Baby carriers (lillebaby), strollers (Peg-Perego) and car seats (Britax) now come in blue jean-inspired fabrics.
