    For the sleep-deprived parents out there struggling to get baby spit-up out of your hair, never fear. These products will have you feeling better in no time.

    1. A double electric breast pump to serve as an excellent option for working or stay-at-home parents who prefer to pump. This kit can easily connect to your phone for tracking and reminders, and Lansinoh even has an app to help you with your daily pumping routine.


    If you're looking for a one-stop shop for pumping, this kit has everything you need, including bottles, diaphragms, tote bag, pump connector, and more.

    Promising review: "I am impressed by the Lansinoh Smartpump! It is a very easy and fast assembly from start to finish. The ComfortFit flanges fit like a dream! The pump is lightweight and fits in one hand. The display is bright enough you can use it as a dim glowing light without it waking up anyone around you when you pump at night. The letdown mode is a huge help and the speed control is wonderful. This pump cut my pumping time down and doubled my output! I can't say enough good things about this pump!" —Lucy

    $130 (originally $160)

    2. A baby food–making system that'll help you whip up fresh baby purées quickly and easily. This 20-piece set is dishwasher-safe, helps you make baby food at a fraction of the usual cost, and has three separate options for blending as your kiddos grow.


    Promising review: I've been feeding my five-month-old using The Baby Bullet and my garden-grown veggies for about two weeks now. This product is really easy to use, quick, efficient, and simple to clean. Plus, it comes with two processing blades, so I was able to make my own cereal!" —Apangikas

    Price: $60

    3. A set of breast milk storage bags, because these'll come in handy immediately after you pump. These have a write-on label, which especially helps on sleepless nights when mom brain is in full effect. Plus, they have an easy-pour spout so you can get that milk into a bottle pronto.


    Pro tips: Just run these bags under warm water, and you'll have ready-to-drink milk. Plus, always lay them flat to store in the freezer, and make sure to squeeze the air out of the bag before sealing shut.

    Promising review: "I have tried about five different storage bags. This bag is by far the best bag I've tried (I need to thank my buddy again for recommending this!). I love the double seal. I haven't had to worry about leakage with these. Plus, these bags TRULY freeze flat! When used in conjunction with a breast milk storage organizer, I am able to build a good supply for when I return to work AND leave room in my freezer for actual food." —May9Mom

    Price: $13 for a 100-count

    4. A baby food freezer tray to safely store your extra stash of purées. It has a stay-fresh lid that keeps freezer odors out, and flavor and nutrients locked in. Plus! Each cube measures out nicely to single ounce servings.


    Just don't mix this up with your regular freezer tray or you'll have a mashed pea surprise in your iced tea, LOL.

    Promising review: "I have been preparing my son's food and freezing it. It's easy to use and store. He loves them! It's good for teething, too!" —Sharon2599

    Price: $7.50

    5. A Tommee Tippee newborn baby bottle feeding set that comes with a cleaning brush to get you through those early days of bottle feeding your teeny tiny human. Extra perks include an easy-latch nipple shape that mimics breasts and an anti-colic valve, which encourages your baby's instinctual sucking action. They even throw in a pacifier in case you may need one.


    Promising review: These bottles have been great to encourage my breastfed baby to drink from a bottle. The shape of the nipple is very similar to the breast and with a few tries, my daughter was able to drink breast milk from the bottle. I've tried other brands in the past with previous children and none of them had luck, so I'm thankful to know this brand works for us. It's very easy to clean, comes with a brush and a pacifier, and is basically a perfect little starter kit. —Birdee

    Price: $21 (originally $35) for a set of four

    6. A baby bottle cooler bag for those moments when you're out with the fam. This bag can hold up to two bottles or sippy cups and is made with a leak-proof, insulated lining. There's even a handy-dandy reusable ice pack included for good measure.

    J.L. Childress

    This bag also gets a major thumbs-up for being small enough to fit into a standard-size diaper bag or backpack.

    Promising review: "I like this bottle bag mainly because the strap unclips, so I can attach it to the shoulder strap of my diaper bag when it doesn't fit inside. I can fit the ice pack, two four-oz milk storage containers, and a four-oz bottle in it (horizontally) easily. It keeps milk cool for quite awhile! —AJ223205

    Price: $9.50 (originally $11.50)

    7. A Playtex bottle and nipple brush set so you can clean bottles without a second thought. These brushes are both intentionally designed with your baby's bottle in mind, so you won't have to worry about dirt hiding in hard-to-reach spots.


    Promising review: "This is by far the best bottle brush on the market! It has soft bristles that will fit into almost all the bottles (I tried it on three), it gets into those hard-to-reach spots, and it has a great nipple brush with lots of bristles." —TerriK

    Price: $5 (originally $8)

    8. A Lansinoh manual pump that can help you as a back-up in moments when you may not want to whip out the full electronic pump operation. An important note — with a manual pump, you can totally groove to the beat of an Arcade Fire song and feel like a warrior mom goddess.


    Another cool perk of a manual pump is that the price is often much lower than an electronic one.

    Promising review: "I purchased this since I was returning to work. I get two 15-minute breaks to pump! I figured this would be faster than having to set up my electric one. Its the best! I use it about three times a day total to pump. I have not had any nipple tears, rips, etc. I prefer this over my electric Lansinoh Breast pump! All in all, it's super easy and fast. I love it." —Nesh

    Price: $24

    9. A set of soft spout sippy cups to help transition to cup drinking like a pro. This two-pack comes with two different tops and detachable handles, so your kiddo can continue using the same cup as they graduate from bottle to cup. Each cup also comes in the shape of an actual bottle, making them easy on tiny hands.


    Promising review: "These are perfect! They are great for transitioning from bottles to sippy cups! I also have the wide-mouth ones! My son loves them!" —Casi

    Price: $9 for a pack of two

    10. A pack of Kiinde twist pouches for being a cut above the average breastmilk storage bag. If you want ultimate convenience, these pouches attach to most nursing pumps and directly catch the milk, so you can easily pump and store. They're also self-standing, or you can lay them flat in a freezer. In addition to being BPA, PVC, and pthalate-free, both the pouches and caps are recyclable.


    While these pouches work great on their own, they also snap into the handy-dandy Kiinde Squeeze Natural feeding bottle, which means you could technically use them all the way from pumping to feeding with no transfers. Sweeet!

    Promising review: "I honestly don't think there is a better breast milk storage bag. Freezing, sealing, and pouring is just fantastic. I don't use the bottle option just to store milk in the freezer and at work. I love them! I've never had a leak or bad seal. Perfect." —Shopper

    Price: $26

    11. A dishwasher basket designed exclusively for baby bottle accessories. It's also great for cleaning sippy cup parts and toddler utensils, and if you're feeling creative, you could totally opt out of using it in the dishwasher and store small toys inside of this cute container.


    Promising review: "I like this basket a lot. It fits just right and keeps the loose items that would normally go flying around during the wash and get melted by the heating element. There are holes along the sides of the lid that hold straws in place too, which is great for those toddler straw cups. Great buy!" —reviewer

    Price: $13

    12. A kid-friendly placemat that can separate lil' kid food into delicious, tiny sections and make mealtime FUN at the same time. This one clings to surfaces, making it a fabulous non-slip option.


    This one's safe for the dishwasher and microwave too!

    Promising review: "The InterDesign Anti slip mini monkey placemat is great for at home or on-the-go. It is a plate, cup holder, and placemat all-in-one. It clings to flat, clean surfaces by cleaning and drying the underside, then pressing it down firmly and around. It sticks very well. No sliding or tipping. It holds a lot of food and is great for keeping them separated. I also melted chocolate, poured it in each section of this dish, and allowed it to harden. The result was a chocolate monkey." —eelnep

    Price: $19

    13. A nursing pillow, which can work wonders for breastfeeding. Just lay your baby on one of these while you nurse, and both of you will be feeling cozy in no time. This mama-friendly pillow is durable and soft, which is super helpful when you're feeding a hungry baby around the clock. Plus, it makes a really cute cushion for tummy time and can also give extra support to a kiddo who has learned to sit up like a champ.


    Promising review: "I knew I wanted a boppy pillow, because I knew I'd be breastfeeding my baby exclusively and as a postpartum nurse, I saw a lot of patients that needed an abundance of pillows for support. It worked for me really well! I ended up nursing my daughter for 26 months and she would not nurse without it. The end of our nursing relationship came when we went on vacation and I didn't take it with us. My daughter loved it that much that she would rather not nurse at all if she couldn't have her boppy. Now I'm using it for my second child. Once again, it makes breastfeeding such a comfortable, relaxing experience for both baby and I! —Tfm015

    Price: $40

    14. A Tommee Tippee electric food and bottle warmer to heat your bottles up in a snap. After adding some water, this can warm up bottles of breast milk or formula (and even food jars) in just four minutes. Now, that's impressive.


    The dial is designed to help you determine the temperature you want your bottle to be, which is a super thoughtful touch.

    Promising review: "I just had my baby four months ago, and this is an absolute lifesaver. I don't have to worry about any warm spots with the bottles being warmed up in the microwave and it quickly heats up just in time for my babies' feeding. I would definitely recommend this to any of my friends. —ohs100

    Price: $26 (originally $29)

    15. A set of Boon Nursh silicone baby bottles for their plastic-free awesomeness. This particular brand is really unique because they are designed with a collapsible drinking pouch, which keeps your baby from sucking up too much air while they drink.


    Stick these bottles on the top rack of your dishwasher to make cleaning them as close to fun as cleaning can be.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these bottles! It was very easy for my baby to drink from them and she got very little air. I also love the way it collapses as she drinks. They cleaned very easily compared to other brands and I would absolutely recommend them to others. —Katie

    Price: $19 (originally $24) for a pack of three

    16. An Evenflo three-in-one convertible high chair, because this'll leave you with not one, but three fabulous options for mealtime. This chair is easy to assemble and clean, and it transitions into different seating as your kiddo grows.


    Promising review: "I rarely write reviews, unless I feel like I have come upon a solution to a big problem for parents. I had originally bought a standard Graco high chair about two years ago. Eventually, as my child grew and his diet changed, it became harder and harder to clean said chair. It did not come with a removable liner and the thought of all the bacteria and old food stuck in the crevices haunted me at night. I came across this chair during my extensive search for the perfect high chair. To my surprise, not only did the liner remove easily for washing, it also didn't have a million holes for food to get stuck in. The best part is that it grows with your child and turns into a separate table and chair. I highly highly recommend this chair." —Kate

    Price: $50

    17. A set of reusable baby bibs with crumb catching pockets so your child can get food into their bellies, rather than getting it stuck on top of them. These lil' puppies roll up nicely, clean in a flash, and can be used over and over again.


    Promising review: "I wish I would have bought these sooner. They are easy to wash, they roll up and keep my child clean. Best bibs I've owned." —adavidson28

    Price: $5 (originally $6) for a pack of two

    18. A pair of BabyBjorn drinking cups that'll give them a way to drink with a perfect grip for small fingers. These come with a really wide base to prevent spillage. Also, they're virtually indestructible — and believe me, many babies have tried (and failed) to prove us wrong on this one.


    Promising review: "I bought this product for my niece a month ago as her mom was telling me how she was having difficulties learning to drink from a glass. These cups are great! For starters, they are made of plastic so there's no need to worry about them being dropped (because it will be!). The size and shape is perfect for kids. There's enough volume for the perfect serving size, yet shaped in a way that they can easily grasp, leading to easier grabbing and drinking and less dropping." —Ethariel

    Price: $15 (originally $19) for a pack of two

    19. A jar of Beech-Nut Naturals baby food to make the transition to eating solids an easy one. The Beech-Nut brand is a time-tested classic and their "naturals" line keeps parents relieved with just about every jar containing basic ingredients and no preservatives.


    Pro tip: If your kid doesn't finish the jar, just stick it in the fridge and it'll keep for a few days. Then stick in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds, and you'll have ready-to-eat food again.

    Promising review: Very good! Just sweet enough, only a little, and mostly tastes of beets but the fruit balances it out! I would order again." —AnxietyGirl

    Price: $9 for a pack of 10

    20. A good prune squeeze pack to use in a pinch if/when your babe is struggling to poop during their solid food journey. Since prunes are known to help get things going, these ready-to-eat squeeze packs are the perfect thing for tiny, constipated tummies.


    Promising review: "Very tasty and easy to make juice by adding water." —GPM01

    Price: $11 for a pack of eight

    21. A cute countertop drying rack for your bottles and mealtime accessories. This one doesn't take up too much space, is easy to wipe down, and gets bonus points for being totally adorable.


    Promising review: "I thought this would be nothing more than a novelty that looked pretty on my countertop, but it has proven to be an excellent drying rack! I use it for bottles and pumping parts/accessories. I have one of the accessory 'trees' that you can buy, and this is great for allowing nipples and valves to air dry. I like that the 'grass' prongs keep everything elevated and it's a breeze to clean. And it does happen to look nice when sitting on the countertop." —LRDesigner

    Price: $20

    22. A good set of infant spoons to help your kiddo learn how to eat properly — or mischievously fling food across the room.


    Promising review: "These are perfect for my son who is just starting solids. They're my favorite baby spoons and are very affordable. The tip is very flexible and soft, and just the right size and shape to get food into his mouth and make it easy for him to swallow. They also have a long handle so they will reach the bottom of larger containers. I love that they're also dishwasher-safe, so I can just put them in the dishwasher basket on the top rack when I'm finished using them. I will be buying another pack so we don't have to use any other spoons." —Jaimie

    $3 for a pack of six

    23. A non-slip floor mat that can help catch all of the little gifts our children bestow upon us at mealtime when they scarf down food like Slimer from Ghostbusters.


    Promising review: "I like the quality of this mat — it feels thicker than other ones and has a non-slip back. I like that I can wash it as well, but I don't have to wash it every day. And it picks up all the little messes." —Kweenbee3

    Price: $15.50

    24. A jar of nipple butter, because let's get real — when our littles are munching on our breasts like a chew toy (ouch!), it helps to treat them to some sweet relief. This little jar packs a whole lot of TLC and can also be used for chapped lips and even diaper rashes. Since the ingredients are all-natural, you can have this butter on when your babe nurses!


    Use anytime your nipples are feeling sore, which just might be 24/7. (Side note: You are a superhero!)

    Promising review: "I really love this product; it was a great introduction to Earth Mama's product line. I have a lanolin allergy and look for natural products that do not irritate my sensitive skin. This was perfect for all the no-so-fun pregnancy breast eased itchiness and soreness, and I will definitely continue using this product after my baby nurses! I've used it on my lips too, it's true, it's totally safe to not wipe off. And it smells (and tastes) wonderful naturally!" —Anna

    Price: $11

    25. A set of plastic bowls for mealtime, so you can rest assured that when the food goes flying (and it will), you won't have a ton of tiny broken glass pieces to clean up.


    These are BPA-free and microwave safe.

    Promising review: "I bought these bowls almost four years ago for my daughter and I plan on getting a new set for my son. These bowls have been through it. They have survived MANY washes in the dishwasher (top shelf) and warmed up numerous bowls of oatmeal in the microwave for up to 90 seconds. They have been chewed on, dropped, and stepped on. I never imagined that plastic bowls I paid less than $4 for would last so long!" —kymarinewife

    Price: $7 for a pack of five

    Happy dining!
