The first year of a baby's life is filled with tons of milestones — and one of them is the constant change-up of eating habits.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
22.A good set of infant spoons to help your kiddo learn how to eat properly — or mischievously fling food across the room.
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.
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!
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.
