    1. An Echo Dot with Alexa built-in that you'll be able to use to play white noise to lull your little one into sleep then turn off the lights without moving/waking them up.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I wasn’t sure if I’d like this at first, but I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I do. In fact I love it so much I’ve purchased two more. One for my teenager’s room and another for my toddler's room. My teenager uses it for music, and an alarm clock. She does not have a prime account and it works perfectly for her. I use it to check the weather, my Amazon Prime order status, set multiple timers while cooking, and general info like what movies are playing in our area. I use the one in my baby’s room to play soothing music while she’s going to sleep. It can also be told how long to play it for or I can control it with my Alexa app on my phone. I purchased wall mounts for all three. Great for keeping them off furniture and out of the way and out of reach from grabby toddler hands. Even wall mounted it gives off great sound when playing music." —Happy2Shop21

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in four colors).

    2. An extra tall baby gate with an auto-close feature to ensure your curious crawler can't venture into unsafe spaces.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    The gate measures 30.5" high and 29.5-37.8" wide. It also comes with four wall cups and a 2.75-inch extension.

    Promising review: "This gate is just what we were looking for! We live in a rental and didn't want to damage the door frames by screwing in a gate. Found this one and decided to give it a try. I was worried with a 10-month-old and 4-year-old pulling and tugging on it it would fall, but it has stood up against them!! Hasn't budged at all! My husband installed the gate and it was very easy to do. Plus it comes with a little pet door that fits our 15 pound dog perfectly! Definitely happy with our purchase!!" —Buggieloo

    Get it from Amazon for $57.98.

    3. A walker from Joovy that'll provide your tyke with a way to play, snack, and explore all-in-one.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This beauty also folds up for easy storage and features a supportive seat pad that can be machine washed (for when things inevitably get messy).

    Promising review: "My fiancé and I absolutely love this thing! We decided to spend a little bit of extra money and buy the Joovy walker over the other walkers on the market mostly because we didn't want to have to look at a pea green/pink walker all day (who makes these eyesores??), and we are so glad we did. This thing is very high quality! My favorite features about this is that the tray has a plastic cover on it so when you want to clean you just pop off the cover and wash in the sink, then replace. I also love how you push a latch down on the under side of the tray and you can fold the walker and store it in the corner. This walker has 3 adjustable heights and I was able to put my daughter in it when she was only 5 months old! The wheels also move freely and easily so you will have no problem with your baby being able to walk it around so long as you have tile flooring (I have no experience on low carpet)." —Jonathon Spencer

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in four colors).

    4. A jogging stroller, so you can take your little one with you on your morning run and feel like an actual super human in the process.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this stroller! It is so easy to push, even on gravel and off road terrain. We jog with this about 3–4 miles a day and it is great. It provides a smooth ride. We also LOVE that already came with the snack tray for baby. My son loves to eat snacks and rest his feet on it while we are on walks/runs." —Gilles2016

    Get it from Amazon for $69.64+ (available in 14 colors).

    5. Or a double jogging stroller in case you're lucky enough to have twins (!!!) but don't want to let them hinder your workout schedule.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This beast of a stroller features multi-position reclining seats, so each of your tykes can be kept comfortable. It also comes with canopy shields to keep 'em safe from rain/snow, and a peek-a-boo window so you can peak in and make sure everything is peachy while you run. Added bonus? It comes with built-in speakers so you can keep your kiddos entertained with some bops while you break a sweat.

    Promising review: "LOVE this jogger. No wiggly tire, no shaking. My husband put it together for me, he aired up the tires because they ship flat, and tightened everything up nicely. I lock the wheel (as you should according to the manual) when I run and even walk. The sun shade is large enough to cover the kids, the buckles are very basic. The foot plate is wide enough for my kids to both put their feet on it if they wanted (kids are 1 and almost 3). I just want to emphasize how STABLE this thing is. It doesn't even wiggle when I'm running, I did sprints with this for a HIIT workout and at my fastest there wasn't even a wiggle. The fabric looks like it would easy to wipe down if I ever am brave enough to give the kids something to drink or eat while in there. The bottom compartment would be big enough for pretty much anything, and the speakers are LOUD. It actually seems louder and clearer when the lid that encloses the speakers is propped up instead of closed." —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99+ (available in three styles).

    6. Gently weighted footie pajamas you'll pat yourself on the back for investing in once you see how it helps your fussy kiddo fall asleep peacefully.

    Nested Bean

    Promising review: "Helps him sleep so soundly!! I used the sack when he was first born and had to buy the next size up after three months cause he outgrew the sack way too fast. Super glad I went with this one instead of another sack. He loves being able to spread out at night:) Thanks for giving Archer lots of good sleep!" —Alisha T.

    Get it from Nested Bean for $34.99 (available in sizes 3–18 months and four styles).

    7. Or convertible activity table your little one will be able to use from the time they're 4 months to 5 years old. It comes with 6 toys that have light up buttons and musical effects any child would be enamored by.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect little activity gym! My baby is currently 3.5 months, he is 15 pounds and fits just fine. I put a blanket behind him for more support though. The middle setting is where he is at height wise. He is absolutely enchanted by all of the toys. It is not a hideous, huge, noisy contraption like some other activity centers! It is made well and I am sure it will last for our next baby as well!" —farmfarm

    Get it from Amazon for $79.19.

    8. A pair of Freshly Picked moccasins that'll look so cute on your mini-me and will actually stay on their lil' feet. No more missing shoes!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Fit my 7-week-old baby girl perfectly... and SO soft and cute!! These are adorable and we love them as an alternative to socks, which slip right off little feet." —oystersandpearls

    Get them from Amazon for $39+ (available in one-size and five styles).

    9. An InstantPot you'll be forever grateful for on those days (weeks? months?) when you feel like a zombie but still want to get dinner on the table. You can even make baby food in it!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This 7-in-1 masterpiece of a device will act as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker steamer, sauté, yogurt maker, and overall warmer. It's a tired parent's best friend.

    Promising review: "This product is beyond description!!! The food comes out amazing, it doesn't heat up the kitchen, there are so many recipes for meals, and within minutes the food is on the table and delectable. I made St. Louis ribs last night and it fell off the bones, they were juicy and so flavorful!!! Looking forward to years of happiness with this kitchen appliance!!! Perfect for those that work, home school or are just tired out. Wonderful meals in minutes!!! You can even cook frozen meats and have it on the table in less than 30 minutes. You can't imagine how wonderful this machine cooks up mouth watering meals in minutes. Can't say enough!!!" —Barbara Berger

    Get it from Amazon for $59.90+ (available in 3, 6, or 8 quarts and four colors).

    10. A sleek high chair with a removable swing-open tray you can also pop into the dishwasher for cleaning after you let your tyke try spaghetti for the first time (AKA, the messiest day of both your lives).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great space saving and money saving high chair. The super modern design and sleek design make it so that the chair isn’t an eyesore. It also doesn’t take up much space and is a great option for someone with a small dining area or living in an apartment. The setup was very simple and because there is no fabric, cleanup is a breeze. There is very little room for food to fall between cracks, but if it does simply unhook the seat cover and wipe it up. So simple and easy to keep clean. The plastic tray cover is also a great addition. All in all, I’m glad I got this chair and decided against other super expensive options. I would definitely recommend it." —chocaholic

    Get it from Amazon for $85.24+ (available in five colors).

    11. A beautiful convertible crib that'll grow with your child through their teen years (yes, seriously!). It starts as a crib and can be adapted into a toddler bed and then a full-size bed — what an investment!

    Pottery Barn Kids

    This gorgeous piece of furniture will help you create a Pinterest-worthy nursery for your little one. It's made of solid poplar wood and has been painted with child-safe, water-based paint. The mattress platform offers three height options you can adjust as your kiddo grows. Don't even get me started on the stunning crown molding!

    Get it from Pottery Barn Kids for $999+ (available in four colors and with or without a mattress).

    12. An interactive play center from Skip Hop featuring a 360-degree rotating seat and a variety of toys to keep your kiddo entertained while you try to catch up on the latest season of The Real Housewives.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is amazing for all of the reasons included in the product description. Want to know what isn't written there? In addition to serving as a great source of entertainment, and let's be honest, giving mama a much needed hands-free break, this unit is basically a MAGIC POOP PRODUCER. My eight-month-old has struggled with constipation ever since she started on solids but a few minutes in this bad boy and, without fail, we have a special delivery. We literally call it the poop machine and we send her for a ride anytime she's gone a day or so without a deposit. Best feature ever!

    So yes, the design is very clean and sophisticated compared to most bouncers, the toys are easy to move around for a 'different' play experience, and it's awesome that it grows with the child. But it's the poop factor that makes this item one of the best baby purchases ever. Yes, EVER! Everyone should have one of these." —Robyn Tucker

    Get it from Amazon for $103.99.

    13. A robot vacuum with over 4.8K five-star reviews you can rely on to clean up your disaster zone of a home while you adjust to being a parent. You're welcome.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the first robovac I've had; I love gadgets and I wanted something to save me having to clean so often, especially now that I have a baby at home I wanted something that could help keep the floors clean and Be affordable. This vacuum is definitely on the more affordable side of other robovacs. This robotic vacuum cleaner is so simple and easy to use, you just need to take it out the box and clip on the little brushes and it is ready to go. You can just set it to auto and off it goes bumping it's way around your place. You use a small remote control to use the bot and with it you can access it's added features, like 'spot clean' and 'edges' and 'single room'. Or you can just use the remote to move the bot around vacuuming wherever you want. It's not too loud and as long as it doesn't get stuck and start beeping, baby can sleep through it's noise. Overall it's a great little machine that does a very decent job of keeping the floor clean especially since it means you don't have to do it yourself!" —al garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $239.99 (available in black and white).

    14. A portable play mat that'll double as storage for your tot's favorite toys — a must-have for any parents who are constantly on-the-go with their baby in tow.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. This mat is a great buy and must have for new parents. We were going over to my in-laws almost every weekend for a while and I wanted something I could put down on the floor and fold all of our babe’s toys up in. This play mat bag seemed almost to good to be true. The material is sturdy and great. It’s breathable too so it works wonders for tummy time. The fabric is durable, but comfortable for our baby. The design is adorable too, I have received so many compliments. I just hang this on the door handle of her closet and we grab it and go anytime we are going to be somewhere for a day. I imagine it will be great for traveling too. Now I don’t have to stuff a small lightweight blanket in the baby bag for floor play, this mat bag does it all!! We love it. It would also be a great gift for new moms." —MRS

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in four styles).

    15. A convertible car seat from Graco that can be used in both rear-facing and forward-facing positions, making it the perfect seat to hold onto as your little one grows.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this car seat. I have bought thre so far!! One for myself, my husband, and my mother... we all have this car seat in our cars and love it. My son grew quickly out of his infant car seat and I was scrambling to find something that would grow with him. He sits very comfortable in it. He also doesn't sweat a lot in it. I live in Florida and it is pretty hot year round. I wanted to find something that wouldn't make him too hot. So far this car seat has done an awesome job! I would recommend this car seat, I am very happy with it." —natalie31

    Get it from Amazon for $159.09.

    16. A baby seat cover you can use as a a car seat canopy, to cover shopping cart seats, as a nursing cover, and more. It's stylish and will quickly become one of your go-to parenting products.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This car seat cover is exactly what I was looking for. I was skeptical at first because of the price, but it turned out perfect. The material is a lightweight, stretchy fabric. I have washed it several times (hung it up to dry) and the material is still in tact. I appreciate the handle hole in the top, that also give me a place to be able to peek in on my little one while we are out and about. This will definitely go on my list of baby shower gifts." —Ashley W.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    17. Starry pajamas to provide parents with easy access to a catheter or feeding tube and baby with a snuggly cotton bodysuit to sleep in.

    AbiliteeAdaptiveWear / Etsy

    Get them from AbiliteeAdaptiveWear on Etsy for $32 (available in sizes 0–24 months).

    18. A knit animal mobile that'll play a soothing melody and circle above your sleepy baby until they drift off to dreamland.

    Pottery Barn Kids

    Note: this mobile doesn't come with the mobile arm you'll need to attach it to your baby's crib. You can get one from Pottery Barn Kids for $29.

    Get it from Pottery Barn Kids for $59.

    19. A bottle sterilizer, steamer, and dryer to make sure your baby's most beloved possession — their bottle — is properly cleaned and ready to go at all times.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This bottle sterilizer/dryer has been put through the paces. I have used this multiple times, every single day for almost 10 months. I have been pumping since my daughter was a few days old. So, this equipment has hundreds of parts going through it every week. At one point, I estimated going through about 100 bottle/pump parts per day. It has held up beautifully! I could not be happier with the durability and quality of the product. " —Monika

    Get it from Amazon for $69.95.

    20. A sound machine/night light for the parent who is desperate for some decent sleep sometime this decade — they need ALL the support they can get.

    Amazon

    TBH, as an adult without kids I would still thoroughly enjoy waking up with this soothing lil' gadget.

    Promising review: "I have now had the Hatch Baby Rest Night Light for about six months. We started using it when we decided to sleep train our toddler. It works perfectly and is really easy to use and set up. I really like the app; I was easily able to customize everything for when he sleeps, wakes, and his nap time. For his night light, I used a soft amber color and in the morning I have it switch to green when he should be waking up. I think he is just now starting to grasp the concept of the colors, but I can see it being a lot more helpful in the near future. I saw some reviews stating that the white noise was louder than they had wanted it to be, but I did not find that to be the case with me. You can easily control the volume of the sound and the brightness of the light with multiple colors." —Pete

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (also available for purchase with a variety of decorative covers).

    21. A Fisher-Price rocker complete with calming vibrations to help comfort your little one — a must-have if your tyke is prone to absolutely freaking out the second you put them down.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "My baby loves this chair! We got it because she was getting a little too big for her rock n play and the little bassinet I used to put her in when I'd shower. I take this chair into the bathroom now while I shower and she plays with the toys happily the whole time. Oftentimes she will also put herself to sleep, especially if I turn on the vibrations! It's a really cute little chair and she'll get a lot of use out of this. I like that it turns into a little rocking chair for when she's bigger." —K.C.

    Get it from Amazon for $29+ (available in six styles).

    22. Or a high-tech baby swing featuring five unique motions and speeds as well as Bluetooth connectivity, so you can set your offspring up with the ultimate nap situation. Do they make this in adult sizes?

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "The fact that I am able to sit at my computer and write this review alone means this is worth five stars. My newborn has not slept without being held since we first brought him home from the hospital. He is currently asleep five minutes after putting him into the 4moms mamaRoo infant seat. I would have paid five times this price for him to be able to be soothed.

    Stop reading this review and buy this if you can afford to, if not mortgage your house, sell your car. It is worth it." —Sir Booga's Mummy

    Get it from Amazon for $219.

    23. Fancy fitted sheets for you little one's crib, so cute you might even get a little jealous of them.

    Pottery Barn Kids

    I mean, just try not to squeal while looking at these stunning sheets. From Monique Lhuillier to Star Wars, Pottery Barn Kids has so many fun and fabulous options to outfit your kiddo's cribs. They are all made of 100% organic cotton percale, so you can count on the fact they'll be soft, durable, and have a pleasing matte finish to them.

    Get both the Monique Lhuillier butterflies and Star Wars sheets from Pottery Barn Kids for $39 (and check out all their styles here).

    24. A convertible carrier, so you can take your baby with you on your errands while making sure your hands are free to check the expiration date on the milk you're debating buying.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This machine washable carrier can be used in four different ways: baby-facing in a narrow seat (for newborns), facing in a wide seat (for older babies), facing out in a narrow seat (for babies with head control) and back carrying wide seat (for older babies and toddlers).

    Promising review: "I bought this for my 10-month-old son (currently 25 pounds at 12 months) when we went to Washington D.C. and would highly recommend for anyone traveling with a little one. He would get tired of the stroller and would want to be held, there were also times where I wanted him up close with me and not in the stroller. He was very happy and comfortable in this. I have only used the frontal position, facing me so far, I have yet to try any of the other 3 — but its a great product and he loves it. Its also very comfortable with the wide straps and the strap that goes across the lumbar. My husband who is 6'3" 250 pounds and I who am 5'3" 140 pounds, can both wear this, so it also has a wide range as far as who can use." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $26.88+ (available in three styles).

    25. Or a sit 'n' stand tandem stroller in case this isn't your first rodeo and you already have a restless kiddo on your hand who'll likely need to be amused during your walks.

    Amazon

    You can either place your younger child in their carseat facing you at the top of the stroller or let them sit in the front seat. Your older child can either chill in the built-in back seat or stand while you push.

    Promising review: "Great buy. Got this for a trip to Disney for my almost 4-year-old and baby 1 1/2-year-old. Front seat does not recline much (just two positions that hardly differ from each other) but she was still able to nap and looked pretty comfortable. My older child doesn't nap on outings so this was not an issue for us. She seemed comfortable sitting on the little back seat and standing as well. Folding was pretty straight forward. Yes, the front wheels must be in the forward facing position in order for the stroller to be able to fold. I saw other comments complaining about this. Didn't seem like a huge deal to me. Didn't take forever to fold it or unfold it. I was able to take this on a plane on an international flight. No hassle from the airline or airport." —Daniel

    Get it from Amazon for $127.32 (available in two styles).

    26. A 72-page memory book for the ambitious parent who actually wants to make an attempt to take note of all their kiddo's milestones as they happen.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This book is well made with thick pages and very cute artwork. It has monthly pages for the first year and pages for many first holidays. It has pages for hand and foot prints, various photo pages for mom and baby during pregnancy and lots of 'firsts' pages. It has extra pages for miscellaneous photos, an envelope attached to the rear book cover and a full blank lined page for additional notes." —C. Pollard

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    27. A portable bassinet from Fisher-Price with a gentle rocking feature that'll make it possible for you to go on vacation or stay over at your parent's house without fear your tyke won't have a comfortable place to sleep.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Purchased in a panic after our first night home from the hospital. This is a perfect budget option for those who don’t want babe to co-sleep and don’t want/need a fancy bassinet. The rocking feature is awesome — every time my daughter moves a little, the bassinet rocks with her. I like that it isn’t huge or heavy and will store easily when we are done with it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $67.99.

    28. A bassinet made by Halo you'll love thanks to its 360-degree swiveling capabilities and soothing center complete with a nightlight, soothing sounds, three lullabies, and vibrations.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Where was this with my first two kids? I bought this in prep of my third kid. It was my first bassinet as the other two slept in our bed, this looked like a great safe sleeper. We do use a DockATot in the bassinet and it fits perfectly still with a long 4-month-old. I love that it adjusts to the hight of my bed (easily) and pivots. When my now 4-month-old is asleep the pivot is so smooth I can move it back and forth and he never wakes up. The vibration and night light I use often especially in the early days. Overall this was worth every cent, I've never slept so well with a new baby." —Sarah C.

    Get it from Amazon for $264.99.

    29. A wooden name sign to display your baby's moniker proudly in their new nursery — so cute you'll want to gift it to every other parent in your life.

    AdorenStudio / Etsy

    Promising review: "So in love with how this turned out! The last piece of our daughter’s nursery and it couldn’t be anymore perfect! Thank you so much!!!" —alichiaheminger

    Get it from AdorenStudio on Etsy for $27.99+ (available in 8 sizes, 26 font styles, and 28 colors).

    30. A baby monitor camera with motion detection, a 360-degree viewing angle, and two-way audio that'll let you listen in on your little one to confirm whether they're crying or you're hearing things in your too-tired parent brain.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wanted a monitor for my 3-year-old son that connects to my phone and this one is amazing. I can choose to alert for noise, motion, both, or neither as notifications on my phone. I also like that I can connect from multiple phones and will probable use my iPad for connection, as well. It has two-way audio that doesn’t sound weird (others sound just different enough that they scare him) and it doesn’t drain my battery like I was expecting. I will probably purchase more for other rooms since the app can control multiple cameras." —Whitney Ray

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    31. Or an audio-only baby monitor with up to 1000 feet of range, a vibrating sound alert, a talk back intercom, and a night light to make sure you can keep tabs on your kiddo during nap time or throughout the night — and hopefully get some shut-eye yourself.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are fantastic. Great price, no extra unnecessary bells and whistles. The parent one has a decent battery and range, and I love that it beeps when it's running out of battery or out of range. You can toggle how sensitive or loud you want it to be and there's a cool talk feature that allows you to talk into the parent one so baby can hear you (I have yet to use that but I have no doubt I will as baby gets older, since I know I would have used that with my son when he was smaller.) I don't have a screen to stare at and obsess over, it doesn't connect over our terrible wifi so no worries there, and it lets you know if something is wrong — wrong with its system or wrong with baby. Oh, and as you can probably tell, it's SUPER portable! We take this over to my parents' house all the time and we don't have to reset everything, just plug it in and go." —Ren Woodard

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    32. A simple changing table that'll match any piece of furniture you've already purchased for your kiddo. Get ready to spend a lot of time standing in front of it dodging pee. Yay, parenting!

    Crate and Barrel

    This changing table is functional and simple — which is exactly what the items in your nursery should be. You can eventually remove the changing table topper and convert it into a storage piece, so it's basically like two purchases in one!

    Get it from Crate and Barrel for $299 (available in black and white).

    33. And a changing pad and cover that are ~out of this world~ and'll help keep your kiddo comfortable while you change their diaper.

    Crate and Barrel

    I personally think this outer space changing pad cover is super cute, but there are TONS of other options to choose from. You'll likely want to snag more than one for when accidents happen (and they WILL). The changing pad itself is contoured and made with CertiPUR-US® foam to ensure your kiddo is extra comfy while you clean their bottom.

    Get them from Crate and Barrel: Contoured Changing Pad for $45 and the Outer Space Changing Pad Cover for $35 (check out other changing pad cover styles here!).

    34. Stretch mark oil over 1.5K moms swear by, making it a must-have for any soon-to-be mamas who want to diminish their baby belly stretch marks and encourage their S.O. to give them a much-needed massage.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this body oil. I used it throughout my pregnancy and it prevented stretch marks on my skin beautifully. I only got one tiny stretch mark on my belly within the last two weeks of my pregnancy. It also prevented the 'itchy' feeling that occurs as your belly grows during pregnancy. This oil has a light herbal scent, which is pleasant. The scent is not my favorite alone, but it certainly is not offensive or unpleasant. I apply a couple spritzes of my favorite perfume after applying the oil and the light herbal scent of the oil doesn't interfere with the integrity of my expensive/higher quality perfumes. This oil makes my skin feel and look amazing. I apply it somewhat generously after the shower to my entire body, not just areas of concern. My skin looks and feels well hydrated and conditioned after use. I usually wait 15-20 minutes after application until I get dressed. The product is oil, so it needs time to soak into my skin. If I get dressed too soon after application, the product gets into my clothes. Overall, I love this oil so well that I plan to continue using this oil postpartum and beyond." —JoRuth

    Get it from Amazon for $17.48.

    35. An OXO tub stopper that'll stop water from slowly draining out of your tub during your little one's bath time, so you'll have plenty of time to introduce them to Rubber Ducky and wash their hair.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have a 3-year-old, an 18-month-old, and a 6-month-old. I was so tired of saying, 'Stop unplugging the drain!!!' This has saved me from myself. I know it seems silly to talk about a product that was $8 changing my life, but it's about the little things. The kids can sit on it, and 9 times out of 10 it doesn't move. Does it slip sometimes, yes. But I could expect that with anything when it comes to life with my kiddos. If you're thinking about buying it, I'm here to tell you DO IT. It sticks to the wall, so it's not falling all over the bath tub when I shower like other products. BUY IT. Buy it for your friends. DO IT. Who knows if my water bill will go down, but my anxiety sure did. lol!" —MelCoff2018

    36. Or a Fisher-Price tub with a cozy padded seat back to make sure your baby's first bath isn't over-whaleming for either of you.

    Promising review: "I have two different baby tubs, and this is hands down the better one! I love it because for the newborns the white portion of the tub allows the baby to rest at an angle where by they are comfortable and secure. More importantly, when bathing a newborn, the dirty water filters out and baby remains clean. In other tubs, the baby is resting in the same soapy water, and sometimes they pee in it. So I like this better because the baby remains a little elevated from the tub, and when you rinse your baby off, the soapy water collects at the bottom. Also, in comparison to my other tub, this one is smaller, which is greater for storage, washing, and handling. I would highly recommend this tub to all new parents!" —Ankit K.

    38. A framed Elton John–inspired sign to hang above their crib to let them know how much you love them (even though they can't read yet). Excuse me, I'm getting choked up.

    39. A glider and ottoman set you'll be happy to lounge in during those inevitable middle-of-the-night feedings.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband and I bought this glider and ottoman in preparation for our new baby. It arrived quickly and was very easy to assemble. It took my husband about 10 minutes to assemble the chair with one tool (an allen wrench which is provided). The cushions are soft and very comfortable! The seat bottom feels like memory foam and the arm and back cushions are also very soft and comfortable. The wood color and cushion covers are true to the product picture. The wood seems very sturdy and solid. Although I haven't had my baby yet, I put my nursing pillow around me while I was sitting in the chair to try it out and it fit perfectly around me and inside the chair. Although I haven't used it a lot and used it with my baby, our experience thus far has been positive! I hope it holds up for a long time :) I'm glad it has pockets on either side of the arm rest. I feel like that'll come in handy when I'm feeding in the chair or reading books with my future little one to hold bottles/books/etc. in it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in 18 styles).

    40. A personalized milestone blanket, because if you're being honest with yourself you'll probably discover you will be THAT Instagram parent who wants to commemorate that at 3 months your baby giggles and loves Winnie the Pooh.

    PipsyShop / Etsy

    Get it from PipsyShop on Etsy for $38.50+ (available in three sizes, four month formats, and three blanket materials).

    41. And a kid-sized Tesla Model S made by Radio Flyer that'll let you live out your very own childhood dreams through the giggles of your own kid. THE CIRCLE OF LIFE, AMIRIGHT!?

    radioflyerinc / Via instagram.com

    This sweet ride is equipped with high-end features just like a full-size Tesla. It has black rims, can go up to 6mph and has a Flight Speed Li Ion battery that charges like a real Tesla (through the tail light port). It also has LED headlights, a working horn, and the ability to connect an AUX cord so your tyke can bump "Baby Shark" while they cruise.

    Promising review: "We purchased the Radio Flyer Tesla for our kids for Christmas 2016 when it first came out. The car has held up well and runs great. Low speed is perfect for young children or learning to steer. Our 4-year-old now prefers the high speed setting but it can definitely skid out :)! The battery life is amazing — true Tesla form! On low speed we can go a couple weeks riding daily for an hour or two. It puts the neighbor's car to shame when its battery runs out after 20 minutes. On the high speed setting the battery doesn’t last as long but still a week or so of riding. It has been a fantastic purchase and well worth the price. Radio Flyer customer service is great as well." —Christopher P.

    Get it from Amazon for $599.99.

    OK cool, now you can go back to admiring how adorable your baby is.
