Top 100 Newborn Essentials
What does your baby really need in the first few months? Here at Babble, that's a question we've spent a fair amount of time thinking about. Like you, we've fallen prey to many a baby gear aisle, lured by the promise of some miracle gadget that will make our little one eat or sleep or poop better than any other miracle gadget out there. Like you, we've stared at price tags through sleep-deprived eyes, wondering if the purchase of sanity was really a possibility.
Here's the good and bad news: Nothing you can buy is going to guarantee you a stress-free existence with your newborn. Tiny people are a handful, and even the easiest babies will have some troubled times. That said, there are at least a few things (or 100) that can absolutely make life a little easier. No, we haven't found that diapering robot we thought would have been invented by the time we had kids, but we have learned that having a few things on hand can make every day a little saner, not to mention cleaner. Read on for our all-time favorites.

A travel high chair might be the only high chair you need, especially for those living in small, compact spaces. Most travel high chairs attach right to the table, like this sleek-looking Phil & Teds Lobster, which can hold up to 37 pounds in a 5-point harness, and then easily collapse into a small travel bag, or the Chicco Caddy Hook-On, which weighs just 7 pounds.
Besides being less bulky than a typical high chair, your older baby/toddler will much prefer eating at the table with the rest of the gang..

We also love travel high chairs that attach to the chair rather than the table.
