    41 Things New Parents Will Probably Want To Buy

    My apologies to your kid's college fund.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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!

    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.

    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?

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    37. A chic acrylic convertible crib for any new parents who want their baby's room to look like Chip and Joanna Gaines swooped in and said "let me take care of this for you."
