Parent tested, parent approved.

We recently asked parents of the BuzzFeed Community to share their favorite baby products with us and here are some of the items they can't live without!


4. WabbaNub Pacifier – $13.95

"Its basically a Beanie Baby sewn onto a pacifier. There are a bunch of different animals. My son has three and loves them. They are much easier for him to hold onto and he loves playing with the animal (plus, they dont seem to get lost as easily as the regular ones)."



13. Baby Banz Earbanz – $30 / Via

"I take my four-month-old with me to swim meets (they can get LOUD, especially the indoor meets), but when I pop these babies on him he can’t hear A THING. People think it's the funniest thing to see a baby peacefully sleeping through a screaming crowd."



17. NoseFrida – $15

"Nosefrida and some saline drops! I swear it looks a little gross, but it works sooooo much better than the bulb syringe. And it is better for your little one's nose. My pediatrician told me to use it, and it's a total game changer!"


18. MamaRoo – $179.99|adaptpdpexsrch|related_prods_vv|adaptpdpexsrch|15008909|2

"I had a baby who refused to be put down, but the womb-like movements of the MommaRoo really helped confuse her into thinking she was being held."

– Asia McLain, BuzzFeed Parents


20. Oxi Clean Baby Spray – $8.60

"I literally swear by this stuff. I discovered it when my son was a baby and eight years later I am still using it on his clothes, my husband's clothes and my own clothes. It has to be the Oxi Clean "baby," though. I tried the original Oxi Clean once and it didn't work as well."

–Krista Torres, BuzzFeed Parents

21. Fisher-Price® Precious Planet™ 2-in-1 Projection Mobile – $59.99

"This mobile was the only thing that helped my son fall asleep quickly. We now have the updated version with a phone app to help turn it on and off remotely, without going into the baby’s room and getting him worked up again."

– Danielle Stevens Schneider, Facebook

22. Receiving Blankets – $17.59

"As simple as it sounds... receiving blankets. You can use them for everything from newborn swaddles (while figuring out if you have a kid that likes to be swaddled), to cleaning up messes. You can also use it as a breastfeeding cover or as a barrier when using a diaper changing table. They're cheap and easy to pack in a diaper bag, so you can have a lot on hand."



27. Baby Brezza Formula Pro One Step Bottle Maker – $179.99

"Baby Brezza for sure! It's like a Keurig for baby formula, just put the formula in the hopper, fill the tank, select your size, and brew! It even comes out at the right temperature. When we got it for my twins, I was disappointed we didn't get it sooner. This, combined with a basket to wash bottle parts in the dishwasher, saves me hours every single day.”

– Kelli Walton, Facebook

28. Miracle Blanket – $29.99

"We had really gassy, fussy babies and this thing is like a straight jacket swaddle that calmed them down right away. Keeps them tight and secure without them wiggling out of it like a regular blanket swaddle."
