Would you try them? From smart outlets to advanced strollers, if you’re looking for a guide on some of the best baby gadgets out there that will help you out as a parent, keep reading.
Best Baby Gadgets Out There
Now the wizards at places like Amazon haven’t invented a robot to help with everything yet, but we have a few runner ups.
Not all of these things will work for your child though! Remember that! Every child is different and some things will work miracles while others might take up valuable closet space.
Check out our list and see which ones will help make your life a little easier.
The Snoo Smart Crib
Are you falling asleep reading this because your infant started crying at 1 am and didn’t stop until all of five minutes ago?
Do you get tired rocking your baby to sleep, only to set them in their crib and trigger another round of waterworks?
If you count rocking your baby as a workout, the Snoo Smart Crib my not be an interest to you. But if you are hoping to fall asleep at a reasonable time, check this masterpiece out.
The Snoo Smart crib not only rocks your baby to sleep, but it also monitors and reads your baby while they sleep.
With its technology, the Snoo Smart Crib listens and feels for your baby’s sounds and movements, and then works in a rhythm to put them back to sleep for you. No more getting out from underneath your warm covers to go stand in the dark for an hour!
The Hatch Baby WiFi Scale and Smart Changing Pad
Nobody likes changing diapers. If you do you might be a saint.
But, did you know human refuse says a lot about health?
Yep…disgusting…we know. But true. And chances are good that you’re not a gastroenterologist. The Hatch Baby Changing Pad with a Wifi Scale can help you out, though.
This device will track the intake and outtake of your baby when you change it. Lay your child on the pad and it will read it’s weight, track excrements, and then sends all the information to your pediatrician so they can assist in reading the data.
This is a way to help you worry less.
No need to fret over how much your baby is eating and if their bowels are growing okay. This machine does it for you!
Who said diaper changes we’re only about taking out the trash!?
The Owlet Baby Monitor
The closest thing we have to a robot right now.
This little device is actually a sock. Yep…a sock. But it’s one clever sock.
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night worrying if your baby was sleeping okay, or if they were stuck under too many blankets or caught on something bad?
It’s a realistic threat and many parents struggle to get a good night sleep because of it. But with The Owlet Baby Monitor, the game has changed.
This smart-sock monitors your baby’s heart rate and pulse oximetry. What’s pulse oximetry you ask? Basically, the amount of oxygen in your blood. Your child suffocating is a real threat, but the Owlet will make sure it doesn’t happen.
All the data gets sent to your smartphone so if something goes wrong in the night, you’ll get an alert rather than having to make random check-ups.
A baby being struck by Sudden Infant Death Syndrom (SIDS) is a very real threat. This device is out there, like the Owlet, to help prevent it.
The night is when you rest, recover and prepare for all of tomorrow’s adventures. The night is not when you’re supposed to worry.
The Mimo is a device that’s attached to a baby onesie, and it monitors everything from position, temperature, heart rate, and breathing patterns.
Like other devices, this data gets sent to your phone so while you’re laying in bed, about to GO TO BED, you can look over all the stats and make sure your child is safe and sound. If something goes wrong in the middle of the night, fear not. Alarms will get triggered and you can spring into action!
But with a device like The Mimo, hopefully, you can rest all night and save your springing energy for the morning.
Has your child ever woken you up or called your attention in the middle of the night?
Does this ring a bell: “Dad….dadddd…….DAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDDDDDD.”
Or Mom. Or Auntie? Or (you fill in the blank.)
Whether it’s crying or language, our loved ones want attention at wild hours. The Toymail Talkie is here to help.
These little plush characters look like fun stuffed toys, but inside they have a mic and speaker that syncs with your wifi. From your phone or another Toymail Talkie, you can send messages to your child’s Toymail Talkie.
The talkie will transmit it to them like a walkie-talkie. But these are more fun than walkies because they also interact with physical play as a stuffed animal should.
So, before you get up, walk down the hall, and check to make sure the Boogie Man isn’t in the closet for the 976th time, check out the ToyMail Talkie!
The Baby Brezza Safe & Smart Bottle Warmer
It’s official, among The Baby Council, warm formula is the best formula.
(We made The Baby Council up but maybe we’ll see a feature in the next Boss Baby film.)
Nevertheless, cold formula takes a backseat compared to warm formula. But heating the formula is tricky. Too hot can harm your baby and too cold causes a hissy-fit.
So why not have technology help you out? The Baby Brezza Safe & Smart Bottle Warmer is here to help.
This machine is specifically designed to heat your baby’s formula to the perfect temperature every time.
What’s great about The Baby Brezza is that it will mix and prepare the formula for you, heat it up, and send you an alert when it’s ready. No more leaning over your counter in the middle of the night, rubbing your temples, listening to your baby scream while you wait for the formula to settle.
This machine handles all of that for you, as a personal restaurant service might. As an added bonus, The Baby Brezza will defrost frozen breast milk and formula as well! No more microwave-errors!
The Brio Safe Smart Outlet
Smart outlets are a necessity in homes with small children! Death by voltage is a very real concern for parents with baby’s crawling around.
Baby’s like to grab small things they find lying around and they end up wanting to play with those things. For whatever reason, they think the outlet is where those little elements belong.
It’s tragic but the thing we use every day for power can kill your child or significantly harm them. That’s why we recommend the Brio Safe Smart Outlet.
This device reads things put in it before delivering a voltage. So, you don’t have to worry about your child finding a metal prong or taking a fork to the outlet. The Brio will know that the element is unsafe and will save your child from a zap.
Kinsa Smart Thermometer
The key word here is “Smart.”
The Kinsa Smart Thermometer is what you want when checking your baby’s temperature. Why? Because most thermometers out there are junk.
Cheap, off the shelf thermometers, are bad thermometers. They do not give good readings or even reliable readings, and when it comes to your little one you don’t want to risk it.
What’s great about the Kinsa Smart Thermometer is that it isn’t wildly overpriced, and it packs a reliable punch.
The device also comes with the app, which allows you to track temperatures overtime, record medications, and make multiple accounts if you have more than one child and need to keep things organized.
If you’re looking for something you can trust when your baby is running the risk of a fever, we recommend the Kinsa.
We don’t throw this one in as a whim! The Amazon Echo has a lot to offer beyond playing music or answering funny questions!
For parents, this is your buddy that will help you stay on schedule and remember vital information like checkups, medications, and appointments.
But the Echo is also a wild card when it comes to random needs. Think about singing a lullaby in the middle of the night…do you want to do that? Why strain your voice — you’re already exhausted! Have the Amazon Echo sing for you or have it play some white noise while you’re hoping to get some shut eye!
On top of that, the Amazon Echo is great for you as well.
It’s not there to just be your assistant in raising a child, it’s there to help you de-stress, relax, and surrender some worry! The Echo is great for handling little things like adjusting the smart thermostat or dimming the lights too!
The 4-Moms Self Installing Car Seat
Getting that darn car seat in and out is an absolute hassle!
If you haven’t had to work with car seats, just you wait! Thanks to the company 4-Moms, we finally have the car seat of the future!
The 4-Moms car seat is not only safe, but it’s also high tech.
As the name suggests, the 4-Moms Self Installing Car Seat self installs. But beyond that, it has a verification process to make sure your child is in and good to go.
While in transit, this car seat has over 20 features that sense for data, which is then sent to the mobile app. This way you don’t have to check back on your baby every ten seconds and can keep your eyes on the road!
Say goodbye to clunky car seats that take forever to get into place. Say goodbye to ordinary car seats that are only plastic and cloth. Say hello to the smart-seat that’s designed to grow with your child up into their early years!
The 4-Moms Moxi Baby Stroller
Speaking of high-tech…4-Moms has another great baby gadget.
This stroller is about you and your baby.
Not only does it come with tons of features that monitor data, like the car seat, but it also has features for you as well. When you’re out walking have you ever wondered how many miles you’ve gone? Calories burned? What about how fast you’re moving?
If you’re into fitness or want to know the data for other reasons, The 4-Moms Moxi Baby Stroller is FOR YOU.
It can even charge your phone! How cool is that! Speaking of charging…don’t worry about plugging this thing in after a stroll or making sure it’s charged before you start your commute. The wheels have built-in chargers that will auto-charge your stroller while you’re cruising!
Talk about innovation!
