Nursing Pillow: Developed with a Lactation Consultant, the new Boppy Nursing Pillow was developed specifically for breastfeeding moms. We love that it has two distinct feeding surfaces: the firm flat surface features provides a stable platform for nursing, while the softer side offers a more snuggly surface. Best of all, the entire pillow is washable simply remove the foam insert and belt and toss the pillow into the wash!
Stroller: The handy Fuze Stroller by Summer Infant not only looks great, it’s incredibly convenient! It’s very lightweight thanks to its aluminum frame and it has both forward and rear facing seat options so your newborn can face you and as they grow older and want to look about you can turn them around. It includes a universal car seat adaptor, and also comes as a complete travel system including the PTPA-award winning Prodigy Infant Car Seat. Additional stroller features include: large storage basket, removable canopy, 3-position recline, adjustable handlebar, front swivel wheels, a one-step rear brake, and a flat, compact fold.
Car Seat: Be sure to invest in a good car seat, ideally one that grows with your baby by converting like the Euro Convertible Car Seat. It’s appropriate for children weighing between 5 and 35 pounds rear-facing or 20 to 70 pounds forward-facing. It features the RECARO Side Impact Protection System, which is designed to specifically protect each of the 5 vulnerable areas of a child in a side impact collision which means great peace of mind. You’ll notice its Safety Stripe System – it’s designed to alert a parent that a twist could occur, or has begun, thus preventing a safety hazard. Simple, safe and convenient!
Baby Monitor: Finding the right baby monitor for your needs is so easy now – there are many on the market you’ll likely be happy with.

It has a large, clear screen that allows you to pan/tilt/zoom, night vision up to 15 feet, and even takes photos and record video. It has over 750 feet of digital wireless range, an intercom so you can talk to your baby. Add in great battery life and you’ve got yourself your ultimate monitor!
Safe Crib Liner: You’ll likely be tempted to get the frilly, fluffy or padded crib liners for your newborn but think safety first. Yes, you can have safe and cute! The Fresh Air Crib Liner has breathable mesh sides to provide air flow while and keeping baby’s arms and legs inside the crib. We love that it was independent lab tested and certified for suffocation and CO2 rebreathing risks.
Hands-Free Cuddles: Bonding time for Mom and baby is important but it does get tiring on the arms! This handy product will help you ease some of the arm stress while you stay close to your newborn. The SleepBelt was designed to allow you to allow you to sit and relax and give you the option to use your arms or go hands-free. This is not designed to be a carrier.
Don’t Forget Dad: And we can’t forget about the dads-to-be! DaddyScrubs has you covered… literally! Wear their clothing that says, “I’m the Daddy!” as delivery room scrubs. Later, they actually make really comfortable PJ’s! What a cute way to show off new daddy pride!
