28 Baby Products That Save Time & Make Your Life Easier

by Katlyn Joy | July 29, 2014 8:22 AM

Time will become a precious resource beyond pre-parent imagination. With so many options now available to us, which products actually get thumbs-ups from veteran Mommies and Daddies?

Baby carriers, slings, or wraps

While your folks, and certainly Grandma, made do without one, parents who start out using one early, swear by them. Today, there are myriad choices, from style, to fabric to features.

Top-rated products:

Baby Swings, Bouncers or Jumpers

Baby is used to motion, after all, when did you stop when pregnant? Now baby finds movement soothing, and anything that soothes baby makes parents' lives easier. Many a night a swing enabled me to cook a complete meal, or fold a load of laundry without tears from baby or me.

Some favorites among Moms and Dads:

Baby exerciser

When baby outgrows the swing, it's time for one of these blessed contraptions. Here are some popular types:

Editor's Picks:

Electric breast pump

If you plan to breastfeed more than a few weeks, a breast pump is essential. An electric one is a lifesaver. Forget the thought of 'I'll hardly use one, so I'll just manage with a manual one.' With an electric one, you'll save so much time and trouble, and it'll make going back to work, or out to dinner a distinct possibility.

Top rated products:

Food Mills and baby food makers

You don't have to stock your shelves with baby food. You can let baby join you in eating the family meal, perhaps modified a bit. Options range from the quite low tech, to lightning-speed high tech.

Our favorites include:

Here are some recipes for making your own homemade baby food.


Life has changes, and so have bibs, thankfully. Now you can find bibs that save on after-meal clean up and laundry chores.

Diaper Changing Kits

It's hard for expectant parents to believe, but they too will join the ranks of parents who can change a diaper in the dark, or blindfolded, with one hand. However, a good diaper changing kit can make the merely possible quite simple.

Editor's Picks:

Diaper Pails

No one wants to arrive at a family's home and know instantly there's a baby in the house, not because there's a baby crying, but because of toxic waste smelling diapers. One of the greatest advancements in humankind are today's diaper pails and systems.

Here are some our favorites:

Baby bathtubs and helpful aids

Giving baby's first bath can sometimes be a less than serene scene. Subsequent may not go much better without the right products. To save time and tears, think about getting a better-than average tub, an organizer and a handy-dandy device to keep shampoo out of sensitive eyes.

Editor's Picks:


In the old(er) days, a baby monitor was a new gadget, and was as likely to pick up your neighbor's baby's cries as your own. Today's monitors are higher tech and most feature video feed so you can SEE not just hear, what baby is doing, saving you from running back and forth constantly to check and see if that was a gurgle or a gasp.
