I’m a total product mom—I love my gear. Whenever I stumble upon clever gadgets or items that make my job as a parent just a little bit easier, I always wish I’d had the foresight to produce it myself. Take a look at some of my favorites.
• Boon’s Squirt, a baby food dispensing spoon, is so genius I can hardly handle it. Fill the base with your little one’s puree of choice before you leave the house so it’s at the ready if you need to make mealtime happen on the go.
• We want to protect our babies from as many harsh environmental factors as we can, which is why I love The Shade from Imagine Baby, which securely covers infant car seats with its breathable, moisture wicking while providing important 50+ UPF protection from the sun.
• If you’ve never had to care for a child suffering from a cold, then you might think the NoseFrida (aka The Snot Sucker) sounds disgusting. But as a parent, you know it’s invaluable. It’s simply the easiest way to clear out your kid’s stuffy nose, helping them breathe and, hopefully, sleep better while nursing a cold.
• When you have a newborn, bath time can be stressful. You’re trying to keep baby safe while getting them clean, which can be more difficult than it sounds. The Blooming Bath Baby Bath is a plush cushion that acts as a portable “tub” for your sink that comfortably cradles baby while you bathe her. Not to mention it’s really, really cute.
