Despite this crazy year, it’s rolling full steam ahead.
I’m constantly amazed at all the new baby gear moms have when they come in for their session at my Mustang Oklahoma Newborn Photography Studio!
It’s been almost 7 years since I had a newborn… and man there is some cool stuff out there!!
If you’re expecting a little one during that time, you may be wondering what’s the best new baby gear for the new year. Don’t worry mama, I have the details on all the must-haves, so bookmark this page and get your baby registry ready.
I’m starting with storage solutions because this is one area that often gets ignored, until weeks (or even months) after the baby arrives. Speaking from personal experience, getting in the habit of keeping all things baby organized from the beginning will greatly benefit you in the long run.
Get easy access to on-the-go essentials with this chic stroller caddy from Itzy Ritzy. Made from pure vegan leather, this water-resistant caddy attaches easily to the handles of your stroller and features a spacious interior and exterior pocket so you can store your things in style!
Keep all of your child’s essentials organized and free up more space to play with this 48-piece nursery storage set from Delta Children. It’s perfect for infant and toddler clothing, easy to clean, and easily folds for transport.
Whether you choose to co-sleep or place your baby as close as possible in a bassinet or sleeper, these are some must-haves for 2021.
Whether at home or traveling, you can attach your nuna MIXX bassinet (with no need for special adaptors) to this lightweight yet sturdy aluminum stand for an overnight sleep solution. It folds compactly with one hand, so you can quickly get it out of the way, and features a large storage basket to keep baby’s essentials close at hand.
The Deluxe+ dock is the ultimate Stage 1 docking station for your baby ages 0-8+ months old. Multifunctional and multitasking, the DockATot Deluxe+ offers a safe and comfy spot that lets baby rest, lounge, play, cuddle, do tummy time and get diaper changes. Deluxe+ docks are lightweight and portable, allowing for easy travel. Additional covers are available for purchase to match your mood, room and style.
Make your transition into parenthood as easy as possible with new and improved BassiNest, the one and only bassinet from HALO. It’s the only bassinet that swivels and rotates 360° for the ultimate in convenience and safety. Your little one can sleep as close as you’d like, while still in their own separate space, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
One of the most-needed baby gear items that will follow your precious bundle through toddlerhood is the stroller. Get an even better deal when you opt in for purchasing an entire stroller system (car seat, stroller, and bassinet convertible). You can’t go wrong with one of these:
This 3 in 1 stroller with car seat contains: stroller frame, baby bassinet, car seat (secured by seat belt). The car seat can easily snap into the stroller or be used independently. The bassinet has a seat mode and lying down mode to accommodate sleeping (or awake) babies. Follow your child from newborn stage through 3 years old.
A stylish stroller for active parents, the Baby Trend Jogger/Stroller Baby Travel System offers you the convenience and versatility you need while on the go. Whether you prefer to stroll the streets or hit the pavement for a jog, this innovative baby travel system will keep your child safe and comfortable. The jogger seat can be locked to different reclining levels, so your baby can catch a power nap or sit up and take in the visuals of the outside world.
Easily go hands-free with a baby carrier. If you haven’t considered getting one of these, you should! Wearing my babies was an absolute game changer! I could actually use BOTH HANDS to get stuff done while they were sleeping on me!
One of my favorites was just a regular ring sling! When you learn how to use it, it can be used from birth all the way to ages 2+!
The unique design of the Contours Love places the buckles in the front for quick and easy access. Simply buckle the waist belt and slide to your comfortable position. When ready, one arm can hold your child and the other hand easily places the back strap over your head. As your baby grows, it’s easy to adjust the carrier as needed. The Contours Love baby carrier also provides lumbar support for long-wearing comfort.
This can be worn as a front or back carrier! Enhanced ergonomic positioning and an integrated newborn booster keep your little one well supported whether facing in or out, while mesh ventilation boosts breathability and cooling. The extra-thick waist and padded shoulder straps still adjust for a great fit, while the magnetic buckles have improved grips for easy in and out.
Follow the baby from newborn to toddler. With this smartly designed baby carrier and sling, the baby is snug and happy, while the momma has her hands free! It’s a magic combination.
