    26 Things From Walmart You Never Knew You Needed For Your Baby

    A fox swaddle, diaper wipe warmer, book on quantum physics, and 23 other things from Walmart you will *definitely* want to buy for the baby in your life.

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

    1. A book on quantum physics for when you've read Goodnight Moon 13 times in the last 13 nights and decide they're ready for something ~slightly~ more advanced.

    You read that right, quantum physics... for babies. This book is gonna teach your 13-month-old more about science than you learned through all of senior year of high school (although to be fair, we spent more time in the school parking lot than in the classroom by that point). This funny book is written by an expert in quantum physics who is smart enough to write about insanely complex ideas in terms simple enough for, well, a baby. With minimalist illustrations that will capture baby's attention, this book gives an introduction to how matter and energy interact on an atomic level. Whether you're gearing your child scientist up for a life in the field or grabbing this book because the cover is funny, you're going to love it. And your baby will too.

    Price: $6.70

    2. A pack of organic blueberry and fig teething wafers that'll ease their gums and give them a palate as sophisticated as Eliza Doolittle once she drops that accent in My Fair Lady.

    Includes six boxes with 18 individually wrapped wafer packets each.

    Price: $25.05

    3. A knitted fox swaddle to embrace your Wes Anderson obsession with your very own Fantastic Mr. Fox.

    4. A WiFi baby monitor so you can see and communicate with your baby easily from your phone (and so you can have a robot that's almost as cute as your baby).

    Free iOS and Android applications mean you can check on your cute mini-you from your PC, iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. The high definition camera has a 360 degree pan and 110 degree tilt with clear night vision. It can play recorded music (including your own voice singing your bb's favorite song... anything by One Direction) and has two-way communication so you can reassure your little one from wherever you are.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this baby monitor! It has a very clear picture and I love the fact that it operates off my iPhone so there's no need to carry around my phone and a separate baby monitor." β€”witknee

    Price: $107.50

    5. A pastel rabbit coat, because there's nothing cuter than babies doing those little bunny hops when they first experience snow – definitely worth getting them the outfit to match.

    Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes 9M–3Y and in three colors)

    6. A diaper wipe warmer that's sure to soothe your smiling baby and help keep their cheeks clean.

    Promising review: "This is a great product that I have used for all my children. A warm wipe helps them fall back asleep almost right away in the middle of the night, while a cold (room temperature) one would wake them. Also with my son, a cold one would end up causing more clean up. This product was so good to me that I give it as a baby shower present." β€”DesertMama77

    Price: $22.99

    7. A baby walker for your Baby Driver.

    Promising review: "This walker should definitely be on your list! It was easy to set up and my little one loved taking it for a 'test drive' right away! Its features are great, with three different height levels and multi-functional use. It's great to put her down and watch her be easily entertained. I highly recommend this product!" β€”Nunez92

    Price: $79 (available in two colors)

    8. A crib with an attached changing/storage station that converts into a toddler bed and a love seat to adjust and grow alongside your kiddo.

    Promising review: "The wood of this changing table crib is beautiful and very sturdy. We like how easy it is to move the mattress on different settings as our child grows. The changing table is positioned in a way that makes changing a breeze (vertical positioning is easier than horizontal positioning). There is plenty of space in the two drawers and the shelves. They're perfect for all diapering essentials. It is up-to-date with all safety requirements. And the price is wonderful as well!" β€”Brittany

    Price: $236.88 (available in three colors)

    9. A mesh fresh food feeder for introducing your little one to the joys of roast beef without them actually having to chew it (jealous).

    Promising review: "I want my baby to be able to feed himself healthy snacks. With this I just throw in a couple of strawberries or grapes and he will be entertained for a while! When I want him to get some protein, I do the same with meat/chicken and he sucks on this thing even longer! When his teeth started growing, I threw in frozen grapes and strawberries to provide a healthy snack and relief for his gums. Yes, I definitely recommend this product." β€”gsanchez123

    Price: $2.98

    10. A clip-on stroller fan that's gonna keep your baby cool so you can stay outside all summer.

    11. An over-the-door diaper organizer for easy access after you feed your baby prunes without thinking of the diaper crisis that comes after feeding your baby prunes.

    12. And then a onesie that'll conveniently say what their diaper is thinking.

    Price: $16.95 (available in sizes 0–12M and in four colors)

    13. A stand-on stroller β€” it'll be a lifesaver for any parent with an active toddler and a napping baby when you all need a break from the house and a walk around the block.

    Promising review: "This stroller has been nothing but a lifesaver for us! It's relatively light for a double stroller, folds easily and compactly, and, most importantly, my kids love it. My son is usually into everything and independent, but he loves sitting in this stroller. It's still in amazing shape considering it's extremely well-loved in our family. I am grateful for this quality product!" β€”ecs86

    Price: $94.99+ (available in four colors)

    14. A pair of booties with some bark and some bite that their little toes are gonna love.

    Price: $8.98 (available in sizes 2–4 and in three colors)

    15. A bottle warmer that's prepped to make your baby's drink with even more specifications than the ones you get at Starbucks.

    Promising review: "This bottle warmer is a HUGE help in the kitchen! I use this to thaw breast milk bags, frozen baby food, and I use it to reheat drinks when I'm in a hurry and want it heated evenly! LOL It has a great steam heat that doesn't end up burning you if you're too close, the dial is VERY easy to decipher and use, and I love how FAST it heats the water!! It heats evenly around. I would definitely recommend this to others!" β€”BrianaG

    Price: $17

    16. A car seat grip to stop your little one from slipping and sliding on those winding roads.

    Promising review: "The price was right and the quality is very good. The grippy surface of the covers helps keep the car seat on top secured. Great product and I would not hesitate to buy another one for my other car." β€”HondaCB7

    Price: $10.32

    17. An eating and activity seat that'll make your baby feel like they're at Disneyland (because they're a baby and won't know the difference).

    Promising review: "I have been excited about dinner the past few weeks because our baby has finally started showing interest in solid foods. Enter, our Mickey Activity and Feeding Seat! This looked great in his birthday photos! He loves Mickey Mouse and this seat has the helping hands, a popular character from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show. Baby boy was impressed. The seat is, first and foremost, safe when used correctly. It has little straps to secure the baby in the chair. The tray is fairly easy to adjust. The toys are all removable, including the helping hands. This chair can be used on the floor, or on a chair. Aside from feeding, the seat can be used for TV time, coloring, or just a nice spot for the baby to sit while you make dinner." β€”TayeK

    Price: $35.96

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

    Promising review: "My newborn photographer had one and it kept my little one asleep for hours. It can stay on for up to 30 minutes, which is normally long enough to get him back to sleep. We take it everywhere, flying, restaurants, road trips, etc." β€”MinnieJeepMom

    Price: $29.99

    19. A duck tub that'll make bathing a breeze for babies who are too big for the sink and too small for the tub.

    We have a feeling this will make bath time ~so much fun~...

    Promising review: "My son LOVES this tub! He can sit propped up on the side and play without me having to hold him up the whole time. He loves the quacking, and I love the built in water thermometer. I also love that after bath time, I can drain it with ease and stick it to the wall with the very convenient suction cup on the bottom, leaving plenty of room for someone else to use the bath or shower!" β€”firethearson

    Price: $11.99

    20. A baby mirror so your insanely cute kid can start finding their good side for all the selfies they'll be taking in no time!

    Promising review: "I absolutely recommend this product. I get a clear, up-close view of my little one and it adjusts to any type of headrest. I love the feature that allows you to adjust the mirror accordingly. This is indeed an awesome product to have." β€”LMNO

    Price: $9.95

    21. An imprint frame kit so you can treasure those little toes forever.

    Price: $12.99 (available in two colors)

    Price: $15.78 (available in three colors)

    23. A toasty snowsuit (the perfect winter attire for your lil' cub).

    Promising review: "I love the snowsuit material on the outside. It’s great for keeping the baby dry. I also especially love how soft the inside fabric is. My baby is super comfortable and the seatbelt opening makes it very easy to strap her in the stroller and keep her warm at the same time during those brisk weather walks." β€”Vandegirlie

    Price: $10 (available in sizes 3–12M)

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