    Oh baby, baby!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A multi-use wrap you can use as a sling, carrier, cover, or even a postpartum belt. Honestly, this will help you and your baby get in the ~sling~ of things in no time.

    Promising review: "I love this wrap! It is a very pretty color. The wrap washes well in the washing machine. It's very long and made with a stretchy material with a cotton feel. The wrap is very easy to work. It takes about 60 seconds total to get yourself wrapped and another 60 seconds to get the baby in properly. My colic-y little guy falls right asleep within minutes and immediately calms down!! This wrap hugs him tight in all the right places. I can be very active when using this as a carrier. I started when he was three weeks old (nine pounds). He is now 10 weeks old (14 pounds) and still enjoys it. Get this wrap, you wont be disappointed." β€”Courtney

    Price: $37.95 (available in five colors)

    2. A noise machine to calmly shush your baby in a way your exhausted voice simply can't manage during your sleepless 4 am feeding shift.

    This runs on two AA batteries, trial batteries included.

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. I found out about it from our newborn photographer and ordered one before we left her studio. We use it for naps, when she's fussy out and about, in the car, and at night. She's four months old and it's still a must-have in the diaper bag." β€”Jo McD

    Price: $34.99

    3. A rinsing cup for making the shampoo process at bath time tear-free and ~whaley~ easy.

    Promising review: "Washing my toddler's hair was always a nightmare. He screams, runs away, hides behind the shower curtain, you name it. I was pleasantly surprised by how well this works. The cup has a nice weight to it and it's cute. The rim fits perfectly on the forehead and is actually very effective at keeping water out of their eyes. It is so easy to wash his hair now. It has been a game changer in our bath time routine." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $7.99 (available in two colors)

    4. A garden drying rack so darling it'll even make the chore that is washing baby bottles ~grow~ on you.

    Promising review: "This clever invention has been so helpful in organizing and drying all of my son's baby bottles and my pumping supplies!! I can fit (with help from the boon twig and flower stem as well) several bottles and two sets of pumping supplies on this rack at the same time. I'm glad I got this version, as it fits everything perfectly and takes up less space on our already small counter! I would highly recommend this, as it makes washing all those bottles and pump parts a lot easier!!" β€”skellimae

    Price: $12.99

    5. A flexible rattle ball you may see as a simple toy, but your baby's imaginative play can teach you that it's also a hat, chair, bird in a cage, steering wheel, etc. β€” ultimately, when it comes to playtime, this thing is gonna be a ~ball.~

    Promising review: "This toy is adorable. It was one of the first toys we got for my newborn son and he got a kick out of it. It's easy for babies to grab and helps with early dexterity β€” he enjoys rolling it around (and especially off the bed), and it's cute without being obnoxious. The lack of flashing lights and loud noises is pleasantly refreshing in an age where it seems like every toy has to be electronic, and in some way dictates how it's played with, instead of allowing natural observations and discovery." β€”Bilbo Fredericks

    Price: $5.99

    6. A pack of six reusable pouches for earth-friendly snacking and meal prep that is easy for little hands to wrap their heads around.

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness this is the best product ever! I am extremely satisfied with my purchase! They have a very secure seal across the bottom that you can insert the food into. They are reusable, dishwasher safe, and easy to clean with the bottlebrush. I have used these so far for apple sauce, yogurt, oatmeal, purΓ©ed sweet potatoes, and baby foods. I am blown away. These awesome little pouches give you the ability to extend the window to which your baby will eat baby food and thereby gives you more control over the nutrition your baby receives. Your baby can do it all on their own, and my little one simply loves it! I would highly recommend these for anyone looking to get more nutritious food in their baby." β€”CSquid

    Price: $16.99

    7. A set of eight stacking cups that'll offer such limitless play they'll essentially be your kiddo's favorite toy for the first four years of their life, despite how simple they may seem.

    Promising review: "My wife purchase these for our year-old baby, and to me they were just small little cups. Little did I know, these cups are developing my baby's motor control skills, hand-eye coordination, and language development. The first couple of times, these cups were just cymbals in my baby's hand. Once the banging durability test was done, she learned the difference between big and small cups and how they fit together. My 3-year-old also like these cups. They are a real big hit at her tea parties. These cups are dishwasher safe. My family has a lot of spending regrets, but buying these cups almost made up for all of our stupid purchases." β€”JA

    Price: $3.99

    8. A rainforest-themed Jumperoo for rainy days when you're cooped up inside and your baby is bouncing off the walls β€” it's gonna be a relief when they can bounce in a jumper instead.

    This runs on three AA batteries, not included.

    Promising review: "I don't write a lot of reviews, but I feel compelled to do so for this. It has been worth every bit of money we spent on it. I joke with my husband that I would have gladly paid $500 for it. We've had this since my daughter was four months old and she absolutely loves jumping in this thing. When she's tired of jumping, she plays with the toys. When she tires of that we turn her to play with different toys. Then she jumps some more. Because of this I can finally eat breakfast at a normal pace, fold a load of laundry, or take a mental break for my sanity. It's super lightweight too, so we often take it out on our porch so she can play while we relax. Seriously, buy this. You will not regret it." β€”Brandon Barbee

    Price: $104.99

    9. A teether that'll be so soothing on your infant's gums they'll go bananas over it. And that's the honest ~tooth.~,

    Promising review: "My baby LOVES this teether!! This was very easy for him to grasp and put in his own mouth. The grip is great, it's very ergonomic for a baby, and I love the feel of the silicone. Other teethers he would only use for a minute or so and get fussy or frustrated, but this teether can keep him occupied for awhile! Sometimes if he's getting fussy while biting it, I'll take it and just gently brush his gums with the end and he loves it, sometimes he even laughs! I've also gotten so many comments and compliments on how cute he looks chewing on it.

    I now recommend this to everyone who has a teething baby." β€”Melissa

    Price: $5.99+ (available in seven styles)

    10. A pair of trainer cups with a spill proof and spoutless design, which is better for little ones' chompers and great for teaching them how to drink from standard cups instead of getting stuck on sipping.

    Promising review: "My little girl is six months old and just started solids and water. After tons of research I chose to give these cups a try. What drew me to these is the fact that they're spill-proof and that these encourage normal 'sipping' development, instead of getting babies to be more familiar with straws/sucking. So far it's working great! I love the mechanism of this product, I think it's really well thought-through. It's not too heavy, and the handles are easy for little ones to grab. My daughter absolutely loves drinking water from this cup. I highly recommend it!" β€”JWin

    Price: $9.19 (available in 11 colors)

    11. A park and play set with a removable bassinet, wheeled base, and easy-to-fold design that'll make hanging out with baby a breeze no matter where you all go.

    Promising review: "This has been perfect for our needs. The little pad it comes with seems fine for playing on and maybe for taking naps. It's quite sturdy but also super easy to drag into the living room if we want to use it as a play area. It also wasn't difficult to set up β€” only took about five minutes. The pattern is cute and bright and the materials all seem durable." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $62.99+ (available in six colors)

    12. A thermometer for peace of mind when the sniffles start to seem serious.

    This uses one AAA battery, which is included.

    Promising review: "This is the most accurate child thermometer we've used. It tells you if you've angled the probe correctly and has been performing strong for us on a daily basis as we often monitor our daughter's temperature." β€”Jon B.

    Price: $28.82+ (available in two sizes and styles)

    13. A diaper wipe warmer that keeps your diaper wipes at a comfortable temperature so your baby doesn't start crying from a chilly wipe in the middle of the night. Seriously, with this thing? Your baby will be smiling from cheek to cheek.

    Promising review: "This is one of the best investments we've made. The wipes NEVER turn brown and we've had it for five months, and use it continually for every diaper change. The wipes are comfortably warm and much more pleasant than a cold wipe, which used to make my daughter scream her head off during middle of the night changes. I'd highly recommend it. I like the feature that locks the top so that when pulling out a wipe, the whole white top part doesn't come with it. I also like the lighting feature that enables you to see inside and assess how empty/full the container is. The green flap on top doesn't snap shut, it just lays flat, but seals well enough to still keep the wipes moist. This feature makes one-handed wipe grabs super easy since you don't have to mess with unlatching the flap to get a wipe out." β€”Lisa

    Price: $27.80

    14. A bath pipe toy with five unique funnels and tunnels your little one is gonna want to play with for ages. With these, a successful bath time for your baby will no longer feel like a ~pipe dream.~

    Promising review: "These are so clever! I think they will be a new go-to gift idea for me! I got two sets, one for each of our kids. They are five and two, and both just love playing with these in the bath! So I think the age range is pretty big on these. My favorites are the blue and clear pipes, with the little 'fan' things that spin when you pour the water in! I love things like this, that are basic enough to build a child's creativity and imagination while also teaching basic principles of physics, etc. GREAT toys!" β€”Louise

    Price: $10.79

    15. A bottle warmer that's prepped to make your baby's drink with even more specifications than your fave latte from Starbucks.

    Find an outlet and plug this thing in for fast results! It can warm a 4-ounce bottle in three minutes.

    Promising review: "This makes our lives MUCH easier, especially at 3 am when you don't want to have to think about what you're doing. It works exactly as intended β€” heats up the milk quickly and evenly. This saves so much time and effort." β€”ZhemJZ

    Price: $20.36

    16. A gentle skin cream that'll quickly clear up any discomfort your baby might be feeling β€” before their discomfort has them making ~rash~ decisions to take their diapers off altogether.

    Promising review: "I wasn't using anything when changing my baby's diaper at first, as advised by the nurses when he was born. Then, after about three weeks, he got a very ugly diaper rash and even raw skin there. No matter how much I tried keeping it dry and using rash creams, it wouldn't help. It was horrible. After the pediatrician prescribed some antibiotic ointment and the treatment was finished, I started using Aquaphor with every diaper change after cleaning the area well. Everything is kept dry and protected underneath. It helped heal the skin faster and there is no more rash. I will definitely continue using this." β€”Sara RS

    Price: $12.15

    17. A sensory teether toy can give your child an interactive and stimulating experience that they can really sink their teeth into.

    Promising review: "This toy is awesome, I highly recommend it. It was the first toy my daughter was interested in (at just over two months). It seemed to really help develop her grasping ability. She could always get ahold of it and if she accidentally hit herself in the face with it, it didn’t hurt her like some of the other little rattles and things she has. She is now almost five months and still loves to manipulate and chew on it." β€”Shelly Owe Noo

    Price: $13.89

    18. A food popsicle set sure to be an ~ice~ way to ease your baby's aching gums during teething time.

    Promising review: "This is one of my must-have baby items. I purchased this when my child was five months to assist with teething. We now use it a year later for teething and for when he is too sick to get hydration into his body. With water frozen in it, it makes an excellent teether or activity while waiting for dinner to cook. It is easy for him to hold. I do not fear him putting it too far into his mouth due to the design. The size of the tray is manageable for my full freezer and travels well for teethers on the run. I highly recommend this product. I see us using it for the majority of his childhood." β€”HappyMom

    Price: $7.99

    19. A Snotsucker that's equal parts nasty and satisfying, for parents who are ~snot~ afraid of efficiently getting the job done when their babies' boogers are making them blue.

    And TBH, this thing is really not gross at all once you get used to it. The "goo" stays in the enclosed tube, is easy to clean out, and the only thing that sucks is you... as you quickly get your baby's nostrils cleared out.

    Promising review: "I know what you're thinking. I know EXACTLY what you're thinking. I thought the same thing when my husband told me about this. 'Ummm, excuse me? No.' Well, it finally happened: my husband was right, and I was wrong. After one or two little 'baby colds,' and half a dozen sleepless nights later, I sent him out to purchase this miracle tube. And miracle it is, my friends. First of all, it's not as disgusting as I first thought. It's not like siphoning gas β€” the snot isn't going to fly up into your mouth. The snot is collected into a tube at the baby's nose, and then you blow it back out into a nearby tissue or wipe. And unlike the infamous 'bulb syringe,' this works. With this, you just grab it and place the end of the tube into the baby's nose. You suck quickly. BAM! You can see what's coming out. You see your progress. Within five seconds, your baby's airway is clear and you pick him up to comfort him. It's easy to clean. It's transportable. It's ready whenever you need it. It's fast-acting. This thing ROCKS. β€”Melissa Harris

    Price: $15.99

    20. A piano gym with entertaining objects up top and piano keys designed to be played by tiny toes β€” your little musician is sure to get a ~kick~ out of it.

    This needs three AA batteries to let you tune in, not included.

    Promising review: " This is one of the best purchases we made for our infant boys. They (twins) are currently 3 months and both enjoy spending time laying on this. If they are borderline fussy, we'll lay them on this. Then they'll have a repeating process where they will fuss, which causes them to move around more, which causes them to kick the piano part, which goes off and plays a tune, which they like and will calm them a bit. It is pretty funny to watch. Both boys also like to look in the mirror and bat at the hanging toys." β€”CDK

    Price: $49.99

    21. A WubbaNub (which babies are more attached to than their umbilical cords) β€” it's the holy grail of baby toys, and it'll keep your little one cuddled and comforted 24/7.

    Promising review: "This is an absolutely fantastic product! The added weight of the attached stuffed animal and the added stability from the arms and legs keeps this pacifier firmly planted in my daughter's face. She also loves the soft texture of the fur and often squeezes and rubs the arms while drifting off to sleep. Prior to this, she would spit out her pacifier after a few seconds of use but with this little miracle she can spit out the pacifier and easily put it back in her mouth when ready and without assistance. The pacifier is made from a quality, medical grade silicone (safe for kids with latex allergies) and shows thoughtful design as well. I give this a well earned five-star review!" β€”Just your average Joe

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    22. A waterproof bib designed with (very) messy eaters in mind, with a pocket so the food train that doesn't make it to the station on the first go has a second chance to be chew chew chewed.

    Promising review: "I encountered these bibs five years ago when my son was a baby. I immediately fell in love with them and they're the only bibs I have used since then. Those same bibs from years ago, and a few recently purchased ones, are currently being used by our newest bundle of joy. The fabric holds up really well and the soft side closure still functions great. I usually rinse them with a bit of dishwashing liquid, rinse well, air dry, and they are good as new and completely dry before the next meal. I have also washed them in the washer and dried them in the dryer and they still look great. The pocket of the bib collects excess food and liquid as intended. The fabric is thin and lightweight, yet it creates a great barrier between your child and the food and liquids they consume. These bibs are worth every dollar you pay for them, and I highly recommend them. I have five kids and have used an array of bibs but these surpass in style, function, and overall quality." β€”Yasminda

    Price: $14.99

    23. A soft faucet cover so you will completely avoid the awful ~whale~ that would come from a little one hitting their head on the bathtub faucet.

    Promising review: "This is incredibly easy to get onto the faucet. I simply slipped it on and pulled each of the side 'fins' until it was snug. That was it. The plunger that turns the shower on and off fit perfectly into the slot and 'blowhole' up top. This product is definitely worth buying if you have a baby about to use the tub. It's soft enough to protect the child and tightens snugly so it will not fall off." β€”Midwest Man

    Price: $12.99

    24. A silicone placemat that can suction itself to your table, helping your baby discover that food tastes far better when it hasn't been thrown on the floor first.

    Promising review: "I love, love, love these plates. They stick very well to our granite counter top and wood table. The suction and high edges help uncoordinated eaters get food onto their utensils and the extended sides catch any overflow. We have two (one for each kid) and I bought this one as a gift for a first birthday party. I'm very price conscious and I feel like the price is very fair for the quality. I very much prefer that this uses a built-in suction design instead of suction cups, which never seem to work well for us. I've washed this by hand and in the dish washer and it comes out nice and clean either way. I would highly recommend this to any parent or someone looking for a gift for a younger child." β€”St. George

    Price: $19.99 (available in three colors)

    25. A snuggly stroller toy with bright colors, soft fabric, and crinkly sounds that'll have your child as hooked to it as it's hooked to your kiddo's car seat.

    Promising review: "My baby loves this toy! It is easy for him to pick up and shake. It makes a loud rattle sound that he enjoys! He also now plays with the little plastic rings and the spinner. This is his favorite rattle out of the bunch we have and he will spend a good 10-20 minutes entertained by it. This rattle is the perfect size to travel with, too. It is about four inches long and easy enough to slide into a diaper bag pocket. He started playing with it at about two and a half months when he was learning to grip objects. Now he is six months and he just enjoys it so much! This is also very easy to clean β€” I just either wipe it clean or lather some soap and rinse it off in the sink. It is a wonderful toy!" β€”Erin S.

    Price: $6.47

    26. A ring of icy gel teethers that'll be the ~key~ to helping your kiddo through that frustrating teething process.

    Promising review: "This is a cute and interactive teething toy. I put the teether in the freezer so it is cool to the touch, which my son likes, especially in the summer months. As he has gotten older, he has started flipping and chewing on the keys. These are easy to attach to a stroller or car seat so that way he has other toys to play with. The other teether toys that we got him did not have that flexibility." β€”L Shi

    Price: $3.88

    27. A spacious stroller organizer you can fill with water bottles, band aids, diapers...or cellphones, tablets, and anything else you need to get through a day at the park with a baby.

    Umm... wine?

    Promising review: "This stroller organizer is awesome! It is well-made, highly versatile/adjustable, and it allows me to go purse and diaper bag free! There is a removable zipper pouch in which one could put in lip balm, personal hygiene, keys, ID, and money. The zipper bag is removable. I love that this folds down and attaches to the frame of stroller. This compartment is HUGE! The mesh material makes it a breeze to clean and also allows one to see where things are, as big compartments can make it difficult to find things. My laptop/tablet fits perfectly. I have plenty of room for a bluetooth speaker, sunscreen, diapers, wipes, etc. Seriously, this replaces all of my bags. This works great!" β€”christina pitchford

    Price: $31.99

    28. A fresh food feeder for introducing your little one to the joys of solid food without them actually having to chew it (jealous).

    Promising review: "Love these for my teething daughter!! I would freeze breast milk into ice cube trays and then put them in here for my baby to suck on. This would keep her entertained for quite awhile! Great for frozen fruit too! A staple item! I always include these in any baby shower gift because they were nutrition, pain relief, and entertainment all in one!! And for all the bad reviewers...all you have to do is wash them out after use instead of letting the fruit crust on them in the sink and you won't have any problem! It's really not rocket science." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $5.99

    29. A lightweight rocking sleeper that'll be the easiest (and comfiest) way to keep your napping kiddo close no matter where you go.

    Wanna see this in action? Then you better grab two C batteries!

    Promising review: "This sleeper is AMAZING. If you have an infant that is having a hard time sleeping on his or her back at night, this is something you should try! My daughter did not tolerate sleeping flat on her back and loved being elevated and more 'snuggled' when she slept. In a traditional bassinet she wouldn't sleep more than an hour at a time. At four weeks we put her in this sleeper next to our bed and on the first night she slept for four hours! Subsequent nights she slept at least that long, if not longer. I've also moved this around the house for naps. It's super lightweight and simple to travel/carry. It's also still easy to figure out how to get it together. It's now my go-to gift for friends' baby showers." β€”Jen in VT

    Price: $38

    30. And before you crawl away, a music box so your baby can dance to the beat of their own drum from day one.

    This requires two AA batteries, not included.

    Promising review: "This is just amazing. My daughter won't stop staring at it when lights and music are on. She enjoys it so much. It saved us from so many hours or crying and fuzziness, especially in the so-much-hated car seat. And we thought at first that it wouldn't be so good! It has nice songs that even my wife and I like it. I think the key to entertain our baby was that the lights are synchronized with the music." β€”Chema

    Price: $8.99
