As I've learned in my first year of parenthood, new babies come along with a loooot of stuff. And it can be hard to figure out what's actually worth it — and what's not.
To help sort through, I rounded up some of my favorite super-practical baby products, or the stuff I keep coming back to. They're all items that save me time, money, sanity, or (ideally!) all of the above.
1.A waterfall rinser that cups up against your baby's head and helps you avoid the biggest problem at bath time.
2.A sleek and functional humidifier that's super helpful during cold season.
3.A silicone feeding mat that suctions to the high chair or table — so your kid can't tip it over or break it.
4.A set of sturdy non-slip stroller hooks so you can transport extra bags or baskets hands-free.
5.A lightweight, foldable (and waterproof!) changing pad that you can use on the go.
