22 of The Hottest NEW Baby Products You Should Know About

The baby product industry is a revolving door of innovation — new products, new improvements, new designs.

Although there are plenty of big releases set for later in 2013 (more on that to come), there are some recently launched baby products that you should know about before making your baby registry.

From baby essentials to stylish new-mom must-haves — and quite a few exciting updates — here are some of the hottest baby products that recently hit the market:

  • New to the Baby Product Scene… 1 of 22
    Click through to see 20+ new products from aden + anais, Oeuf, ERGObaby, and more.
  • Aden + Anais Easy Swaddle 2 of 22
    aden + anais makes the most recommended swaddle blankets on the planet — and now they've introduced an even easier version of their popular muslin design. Rather than traditionally wrapping and folding your baby up like a burrito, their new Easy Swaddle secures the swaddle with simple snaps. But, of course, they're still made from the same soft, breathable muslin fabric.
    Buy from aden + anais, $24.95
  • NEW Boppy Nursing Pillow 3 of 22
    When I was breastfeeding, I regarded my Boppy pillow as one of my most prized new-mommy possessions. And now they've come out with a new version — this time with reversible surfaces (one side firm for nursing, the other soft for snuggling), a wide-arm design, and a removable belt. And once you remove the belt and the foam insert, you can wash the entire pillow (rather than just the cover).
    See more about the Boppy, including an in-depth video.
  • Comfort & Harmony mombo Deluxe with Taggies Fashion 4 of 22
    The mombo — which is a double-sided nursing pillow (one side firm and the other soft) with optional vibrations — is now covered in bright, silky tags. For some reason, most babies love to touch and rub those little tags, so it's a smart idea to put them on a pillow that can be used for Tummy Time.
    Buy from Babies R Us, $49.99
  • Angel Care Bath Support 5 of 22
    This bath support seat ($29.99), with mold-resistant soft mesh, gives Baby a comfortable, safe place for bathing. (Available at Target and Amazon.)

  • BabyBjorn Rocking Harmony Cradle 6 of 22
    This was a highly researched, carefully designed new release for BabyBjorn. Their first-ever cradle uses mesh fabric for better air circulation, and baby's natural movement gently bounces the cradle, lulling your little one to sleep. It's pricey for a short-lived bassinet ($308.52), for sure, but some parents might be willing to splurge.
    Read all about the science behind the design from BabyBjorn.
  • Skip Hop Grand Central 7 of 22
    If you haven't decided on a diaper bag yet, I'd direct you toward Skip Hop — affordable, stylish, and durable. And they keep adding more styles to their extensive selection — like their newer Grand Central bag, which is a sophisticated carry-all tote that's way roomier than it looks.
    Buy from Skip Hop, $90
  • Skip Hop Lady Bento 8 of 22
    Skip Hop also recently updated their "Bento" diaper bag — a previously gender-neutral bag that comes with travel-friendly snack containers and an insulated food pack. This Lady Bento version is a much more feminine design.
    Buy from Skip Hop, $99
  • ERGObaby Winter Edition Carrier 9 of 22
    If you're having a baby in the next few weeks and have yet to pick up a baby carrier, maybe you'll consider the newest design from ERGObaby? They upped the style and warmth with their Winter Edition Carrier — which comes with a quilted lining and sheepskin trim, plus a removable sheepskin-trimmed muff for mom's hands. If you're in a chilly area, looking to combine style with functionality, then this might be your answer.
    Buy from giggle, $195
  • Skip Hop Giraffe Safari 10 of 22
    Fans of Skip Hop's popular bedding sets (which include "Complete Sheets" that have the look of a baby bumper without the SIDS controversy) will love their newest gender-neutral Safari theme.
    Buy from Skip Hop, $24 - $99
  • Skip Hop Pink Elephant 11 of 22
    They also recently introduced an elephant design to their expanding line of baby bedding.
    Buy from Skip Hop, $24 - $99
  • Skip Hop Springtime Birdie 12 of 22
    And cheerful chirping birdies! And all of the new Skip Hop designs have corresponding wall decals for $20.
    Buy from Skip Hop, $24 - $99
  • Babycook Pro2X 13 of 22
    Babycook recently introduced two new additions to their baby-food-making line: The Babycook Pro and The Babycook Pro2X. Cook up healthy food for your baby (cook, puree, steam etc.) quickly and easily. And the Pro2X allows you to make even more food in less time.
    Buy from giggle, $150 - $200
  • aden + anais Laundry Detergent 14 of 22
    aden + anais' new laundry detergent is — I'm not even kidding — the best laundry detergent I've used. Not only is it safe for baby (and sensitive skin), but it makes all of the clothes smell deliciously fresh.
    Buy from giggle, $22.95
  • Mountain Buggy Mini 15 of 22
    Mountain Buggy's newest stroller is their lightest, most compact stroller yet. Typically Mountain Buggy makes heavy-duty all-terrain strollers, but this is their more urban design. It's even car seat compatible.
    Buy from Mountain Buggy, $349.99
  • SwaddleDesigns + Disney 16 of 22
    SwaddleDesigns — maker of some of my favorite swaddle blankets — teamed up with Disney for a variety of pretty designs. I especially love the vintage sketch-like Minnie and Mickey designs.
    See all of the SwaddleDesigns + Disney swaddles.
  • Bébé au Lait Monogramming 17 of 22
    Bébé au Lait introduced their four-sided bibs last year (which are reversible with double-sided magnets), but now they can be monogrammed for a personal touch. (You can now personalize everything from blankets to bibs to nursing covers.) Besides that, they introduced a slew of new fabric designs, and my favorite has to be the hot air balloons.

  • Oeuf Rhea Crib 18 of 22
    Oeuf makes some of the most beautifully crafted, highly coveted baby furniture on the market. And now they've come out with a brand new design — the Rhea Crib — which, like everything Oeuf makes, is gorgeous. The walnut finish is a little more rustic than their past designs, but it absolutely has that clean, modern, sophisticated Oeuf style.
    Buy from Fawn and Forest, $670
  • Baby Jogger Versa 19 of 22
    Out of all the strollers I've tested (and that's A LOT), the Baby Jogger Versa is the one I'd choose for myself. It has everything I love about a Baby Jogger (compact, crazy easy to fold, simple design), except it has a reversible seat! AND the stroller can quickly snap closed no matter which direction the seat is facing. You can use this one stroller from the beginning to the end of your stroller-using years.

  • Joovy Caboose Ultralight 20 of 22
    If you're expecting your second child, and if your first child is set to outgrow the stroller in a year or so, you might want to check out Joovy's Caboose Ultralight. The sit-and-stand stroller has a bench in the back for an older kid to sit down or stand and ride — but they recently added a second seat attachment! So it can be a double stroller, a part-time stroller, or even just a single.

  • Phil & Teds DOT 21 of 22
    If you're in the market for a new double stroller, the Phil & Teds DOT is the most compact double stroller I've ever seen.
    Read my full stroller review.
  • Phil & Teds Navigator 22 of 22
    Phil & Teds also came out with a Navigator inline that's a little bigger than the DOT (handles broken-up gravel and uneven terrain better), but much more streamlined than their past inline strollers. I'm a fan.
