Parenting is tough. There’s no rule book, you’re learning to be a parent, your baby is learning how to even baby, and each little bean is so different, you feel new at the whole gig no matter how many you have. But luckily we’re living in a time where if there’s a problem, there’s almost always a technological solution to it. So whether you’re a new parent or a new parent for the second or third time, we have some gadgets that should make all of this a little bit easier.
Humidifier, Diffuser, and Nightlight
Before we go any farther, you should know, that it’s all in one. This small but mighty gadget adds just a mist of cool water to the air while diffusing essential oils to promote sleep, and the color-changing nightlight gives your baby’s room the perfect dreamy ambiance. And the best part? It’s under $50. Buy one here!
Developed by a pediatric Gastroenterologist this device is simply a hollow tube that safely, naturally, and instantly relieves gas. In short, this tube is long enough to go where it needs to go but short enough that it doesn’t go where it shouldn’t. What we like most about this is that it’s a natural alternative to other gas relievers that must be ingested. Check it out here!
Baby Bottle Sterilizer and Dryer
This contraption uses natural steam to effectively sterilize and dry your bottles, breast pump parts, pacifiers, teethers, sippy cups, and toys in one easy step. And being a new parent means you think about something, then something else happens, and suddenly you have no idea why you even set foot in the kitchen, all of which to say that left in the unopened sterilizer, whatever parts and pieces you have in it will stay sterilized for 24 hours.

As parents, we’re always worried about one of our kids choking, while simultaneously pushing that awful thought out of our brains. The Life Vac is a great tool to have on hand for peace of mind but also just in case something happens and the Heimlich maneuver isn’t working. This is easy to use, does not require a prescription, works on children and/or adults, and only needs to be replaced if it’s been used. Buy one here.
Automatic Pan Stirrer
Have you ever tried making dinner with a screaming child in the background, at your feet, or in your arms? It’s not our idea of a good time. An automatic pan stirrer can help. All you have to do is push a button and the apparatus will start self-rotating for 1 – 10 minutes, however long you need. Because sometimes all you need is an extra hand. But sometimes there is no extra hand. That’s where technology comes in. Buy one here!
