Some baby products are necessities or fabulous time savers, while others seem like a good idea but end up collecting dust in a closet. Whether you’re expecting a new baby or shopping for a shower or birthday gift, it can be hard to know what you will truly use and what will become clutter.
Of course, the word “best” is subjective, so I’m not going to use that word. I did end up with more than a few baby products that I thought I had to have but ended up being a waste of money. The following is a list of my favorite toddler and baby products that we used. If I were to have another child, I would use all of these same products again.
1. Infant car seat (Chicco KeyFit 30)
5. Baby wrap (Boba Wrap)
8. Boppy pillow
9. Diaper bag (JuJuBe)
5. Soft structured baby carrier (Boba 4G)
7. Umbrella stroller (MacLaren Triumph)
8. CoolIt plate
*Note: when it comes to car seats, all seats meet the minimum requirements for safety and will be safe if properly installed and used properly. My recommendations are based on ease of installation and ease of use to be sure that you are using your car seat correctly.
What are on your must-have list for babies and toddlers? Did you have a product that you thought you would need, but barely used?
