The Why Cry Baby Crying Analyzer
Sick of guessing why your baby is bawling? The WhyCry Baby Monitor
can help. When your infant starts sobbing, this mechanism analyzes the pitch of your child's cries and identifies the culprit, so you can quickly resolve the issue and return to peace and quiet.
Now that your healthy baby has been delivered, it's time to break out the champagne. But, how can you be sure that your breastmilk is baby-friendly? Milkscreen
has designed a test that can analyze a small sample of your milk and detect traces of alcohol. It's best not to consume any alcohol wile breastfeeding, but many moms feel that motherhood sometimes requires a stiff drink, and this at-home testing device may keep your baby healthier.
Itzbeen Pocket Nanny Baby Care Timer
When you're a sleep-deprived new parent, it can be hard to remember your own name, let alone remember when the baby last napped. Wish you could afford a nanny to help you handle such basics? Try an electronic one: The Itzbeen Pocket Nanny Baby Care Timer
can keep track of the last time the baby napped, ate or had a diaper changed. The gadget also features a soft-glow night light.
Earcheck Middle Ear Monitor
Ear infections are common among infants and toddlers, but it's difficult to determine if your child is really sick without seeing a doctor. The Earcheck
monitor painlessly detects fluid in the middle ear to alert you to an infection.
4moms Cleanwater Collection
A Digital Bath Spout Cover
keeps your kid from getting bumped and bruised in the tub, and conveniently displays the water temperature to make sure it's safe and comfortable.
Are you already imagining your baby's college career? Overachieving moms don't let Baby's unborn status delay his intellectual development; learning can start in the womb. BabyPlus
is a prenatal educator that teaches Baby with sound and rhythm lessons.
AVA the Elephant Medicine Dispenser
Well, you can't give Baby a spoonful of sugar, so what else will help the medicine go down? Enter AVA the Elephant
. This talking medicine dispenser features a "trunk" that includes a medicine dropper. After parents fill the dropper with the correct dosage and press the button, Ava encourages the child with cheerful instructions: "One, two, three... open wide! Good job!"
The slogan for this mom-invented product says it all: "One Bib a Day Keeps the Moisture Away." Parents may appreciate the Dribble Bibble
because it offers a reprieve from changing wet bibs and shirts all day long. The reversible bib is made to handle saliva, milk, and solid foods. One side is covered with a super-absorbent fabric that dries within minutes to accommodate your favorite little drooler, while the other includes a pocket to catch wayward mushed-up carrots and more.
My Blue Bumbershoot
Forget singing in the rain—try strolling in the rain while staying dry. This hands-free stroller umbrella
is specifically designed to attach to a stroller's handlebars and fits at least a dozen stroller brands. Plus, you don't have to worry about visibility—the bubble-shaped umbrella is clear (its canopy is made of ethylene vinyl acetate) to keep stroller users from bumping into other pedestrians.
When going out for a walk with Baby on a sunny day, keep harmful rays at bay with the SnoozeShade
. Made of a breathable, lightweight fabric with UPF 50+ sun protection, the SnoozeShade is made to fit over conveniently over strollers. "Twin" versions are available for double strollers, while the SnoozeShade Plus (pictured here) features a "lookout" window that can be zipped shut when it's time for a nap.
Got a sink full of baby bottles ready to be washed? Steri-bottles
might give you the break you need every once in a while! These inexpensive, pre-sterilized bottles are designed to be used once and then tossed. But don't worry too much about waste: the bottles, including nipples, are totally recyclable. Pre-packaged in sets of five or ten in a resealing bag, they're perfect for travel or out-and-about with Baby.
Summer Infant Peek Plus Internet Baby Monitor System
Modern video monitors let you peek in on your infant from the next room, but what about from halfway around the world? The Summer Infant Peek Plus Baby Monitor System
lets parents and loved ones see the baby anywhere, anytime thanks to an app that syncs your iPhone, Blackberry or Android to the camera in Baby's room. The system also includes a standard handheld baby monitor for home use.
