It doesn’t matter if you’re still pregnant, coming up on a first birthday or somewhere in between, this list has everything. With a stroller that can turn into a toddler car, a sparkly lightweight sling, a play yard with plenty of room to actually play and some of the cutest diapers we’ve ever seen, here are 12 items that will help you shake off the dreary winter and soak up some of the best spring has to offer.


  • Bummis Easy-Fit Diapers 1 of 12
    Bummis Easy-Fit Diapers
    I was told when I started cloth diapering I would develop an obsession with every new print and style — that wasn't true until I saw the Fairy Tale prints by Bummis. Not only is the Aplix some of the best I've ever seen, their bright and cheeky prints come in The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk, Chicken Little and Hansel & Gretel to name a few.
    Available in April from Bummis
  • aden + anais bamboo swaddlers 2 of 12
    aden + anais bamboo swaddlers
    The first name many parents think of when they think of muslin swaddling blankets has added feather light and super-soft bamboo to their line of airy and strong swaddling blankets. The bamboo allows air to circulate, keeping baby from overheating in milder temperatures.
    Buy them from aden + anais, $40 for a 3-pack
  • Dolphin Organics Simply Citrus 3 of 12
    Dolphin Organics Simply Citrus
    My favorite brand of completely all-natural and organic baby wash has come out with a new sweet Simply Citrus scent. In my opinion there was only one way to make Dolphin Organics better, and this is it.
    Buy it from Dolphin Organics , $11.99
  • Pediped 4 of 12
    Pediped
    Will your little baby be taking his or her first steps outside this spring? Why not wrap their foot in soft leather shoes that ensure healthy foot development and are cute to boot?
    Buy them from Pediped, $33
  • Chan Pie Gnon Teething Toys 5 of 12
    Chan Pie Gnon Teething Toys
    Most every baby I know has Sophie the Giraffe, but did you know about Sophie's three mushroom cousins? Chan, Pie and Gnon have Sophie's same familiar feel, squeak and smell but in fun and different shapes.
    Buy them from Amazon, $12.25 each
  • thinkbaby Sunscreen 6 of 12
    thinkbaby Sunscreen
    Rated a 1 on EWG's Skin Deep, sunscreen doesn't come much safer than this. With a light fresh scent and waterproof formula, keep that tender baby skin protected year round.
    Buy it from Drugstore.com, $14.99
  • Barley & Birch Clothing 7 of 12
    Barley & Birch Clothing
    Made in the USA from organic cotton, produced primarily with solar power and dyed with non-toxic water based inks, Barley & Birch has made some of the most simple — and simply lovely — baby clothes since 2009.

  • Sakura Bloom Pixie Sling 8 of 12
    Sakura Bloom Pixie Sling
    Sakura Bloom is probably the most well-known brand of both luxurious and lovely baby slings. They've added to their classic linen and silk slings with the new Pixie Collection, an airy lightweight linen woven with a bit of sparkle that gets stronger and better with every use.

  • Joovy Room2 Ultralight 10 of 12
    Joovy Room2 Ultralight
    Inside, outside, upstairs, downstairs, naptime and travel. The Joovy Room2 Ultralight is a massive 9 square feet when set up, plenty of room to play or sleep — but it weighs in at just over 21 pounds. The top rails are curved in to prevent jailbreaks and it can be quickly folded in half for easy storage or completely for travel. Includes a memory foam mattress and 100% brushed cotton sheet.
    Buy it from Joovy , $209.00
  • Boon Naked Tub 11 of 12
    Boon Naked Tub
    Finally a tub that can accommodate a tiny newborn as well as an older baby, but still folds completely flat for storage. With Naked's two different size settings, bath time with different-sized babies has never been easier.
    Buy it from Boon, $79.99
  • Mutsy 4rider Light Stroller with Funseat 12 of 12
    Mutsy 4rider Light Stroller with Funseat
    Mutsy's 4rider Light Stroller makes up for its higher price tag with a gaggle of different features that truly grow with your baby and family. It can transition from a car seat carrier to a bassinet and then to a traditional stroller with a reclining seat that can face backwards or forwards. And if your baby has grown into a toddler that's ready to drive? Switch out the stroller seat for the Funseat, a toddler seat that allows your child to "steer." Have another child or baby? Add the optional duo seat or ride-along stepup board.
    Buy it from Mutsy , $569 (accessories sold separately)
