5 Must-Have Baby Accessories That Parents Go Gaga For
There are plenty of gadgets that new parents don’t need. You get shiny new items during your shower, and you memorize all the lists of can’t-miss gadgets on your favorite parenting websites, but you won’t use half of what you think you want. It’s better to stock up on baby gadgets and accessories that make your job a little easier.
The Perfect Bath Cushion
Giving your squirmy, wiggling baby a bath is the most fun part of the day. Ensure that it’s comfortable and cozy for baby by introducing a soft, water-safe mat. Sit it in the sink or tub, place your baby in the center of it, and your tot is held in the perfect position for a gentle wash.
You always want to catch a fever as quickly as possible, but taking your baby’s temperature is sometimes an ordeal. The next time you’re worried about your little one’s temp, offer up a pacifier instead. You won’t have trouble finding one that doubles as a thermometer and effortlessly takes your baby’s temperature.
Teething accessories have come a long way. Some of them can be placed in the freezer or fridge. The cold numbs baby’s painful gums. There are also teething toys in which you can put pieces of fresh fruit or sweeter vegetables, such as carrots. Teach your child to love fresh produce from an early age!
A Bath Time Thermometer
Yes, a second thermometer makes the list, but it’s worth the double mention. Check out rubber ducks for the tub that simultaneously test the temperature of the water. You need to be careful with your baby’s skin. Using a floating thermometer, you can always bathe your baby confidently, knowing that the water will never be too hot.
A Baby Carrier
Every parent will choose a different carrier. It always comes down to what feels right to you and what your child likes. Whether you get one with an adjustable seat or a baby backpack, pick out something that lets you carry your baby while freeing up your hands; it’ll make life easier.
