Looking to add the newest baby gear to your registry this summer? We’re always adding the best of the best to the Babylist store—but these are the products that really caught our eye this season.

Here’s our favorite new gear we think you need to check out.

Does this come in our size? This organic lounger is the perfect spot for your baby to hang. It’s designed to curve around your little one’s back and cradle them in a cozy, calming position that’s just right for hanging out or for supervised rest. You can use it without a cover or add one on for easier cleanup in case of a mess.

Gathre is one of our favorite modern baby brands, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to the Babylist store. Their bonded leather mats may look simple, but the sky’s the limit on how you’ll use them with your family. They’re ideal as a playmat or beach blanket, perfect for a picnic at the park or a day at the lake, and can even be used as a craft mat or under any space where you don’t want to deal with a mess. (And when a baby is involved, there are oh so many of those.) They’re easy to wipe clean and come in a rainbow of gorgeous neutrals.

Joovy’s Nook high chair has long been one of our favorites, which is why we were thrilled when the Nook NB came along. While the original Nook can be used when your baby is about six months old, the NB can be used right from birth. The fold on the NB is also faster and smoother than its predecessor—and that’s saying something, as the fold on the original Nook is pretty great. This seat is a great choice if you’re short on space and need a high chair that stores compactly or if you’re looking for a full size high chair that’s easy for travel.

Modern design, clean lines and 100% vegan material put this diaper bag squarely into our category of brand-new favorites for the summer. It boasts tons of pockets for storage and comfy backpack straps that make it easy to carry. We also love that it’s large enough to carry all of our must-haves but not too big and bulky that it’s heavy or comfortable.

If a modern aesthetic is your jam, you’re going to want to give all of dadada’s furniture a second look—but especially this rocker. It’s minimal and modern without sacrificing one bit on comfort. (We love the high arms and the back support pillow.) It’s a fairly slim chair that fits well in any space but especially if you need something for a smaller space.

Baby gear that does more than one thing—and does them both well—is always a favorite. The brand-new Sway from Baby Jogger is a bouncer and a rocker all rolled into one. So why should you add it to your registry? We promise it’s going to be a favorite spot for your little one to chill, and you’ll save space by registering for one thing instead of two.

Lots of parents tell us that breathability is a big concern when considering their baby’s sleep space. (And we completely understand why.) Nook’s Pebble mattress is made from special technology that increases airflow through its core. It’s also completely organic and non-toxic, so you’ll definitely want to consider it if you’re shopping for a crib mattress with these things in mind.

Aden + Anais is a longtime go-to for the best muslin swaddles around. Their newborn essentials are just as great and easily earn a spot on your baby registry. Each set comes with a knotted gown (ideal for those early days when you need easy access for lots of diaper changes), a hat, a bib and an extra-soft blanket.

Attention Anglophiles: we’ve got the stroller for you! Reportedly the stroller brand of choice for Kate Middleton, Silver Cross makes beautiful baby strollers that are as luxurious as they are functional. The Wave offers seven configurations right out of the box (with the ability to create up to 30 modes with add-ons) and is a great choice if you want a stroller that will grow with your family. Other features we love include a well-ventilated bassinet, an impressive suspension system and hand-stitched leather details.

Not all baby gear gadgets are created equal, but the Bokee’s a winner. It’s a simple, smart solution that solves for one of the most frustrating pain points of parenthood—trying to prep a bottle using just one hand. (Because you’re usually holding your baby in the other, of course.) Simply push it down on any smooth surface and nestle the bottle inside and you’re good to go.

You can never have too many cuddly friends. These stuffed animals, made from soft, organic yarn, work as whimsical nursery accents or as your baby’s new best friend. (Once they’re a little bit older, of course.) We love Meri Meri’s cool-meets-whimsical aesthetic and think you will as well.

There are lots of sleep sacks you can choose from when building your registry. We’re particularly excited about this one due to the bamboo fabric, which is super soft against baby’s delicate skin. It’s extra long so it will grow with your little one, and features a double zipper for easier diaper changes. It’s lightweight and best for the summer months or if your nursery is on the warmer side.

We’re not giggling, you’re giggling. (Fine, we’re giggling too.) Giggle all you want—this product is actually pretty genius. These boxer briefs cover the “sensitive” areas, let’s call them, on some parents’ lower halves. They’re especially useful if you do a lot of babywearing, since those tiny little kicking feet tend to line up with all the wrong spots.

We’re always excited every time we see a new drop from Little Unicorn in the Babylist store. Their prints and patterns are the perfect combo of unique and whimsical, and these bandana bibs are no exception. The absorbent material is ideal for soaking up baby drool and looking stylish while doing it.

Baby monitors just keep getting better and better. The Miku is a smart monitor, meaning it offers the perks of a traditional monitor like a camera and a speaker along with added features like breathing tracking, motion sensors and even a temperature and humidity sensor for your nursery. If you think a smart monitor may help you sleep a little easier, this one is definitely worth checking out.

Teeny tiny little crocheted baby booties. Need we say more? Your IG feed just called and said it needs you to add these to your registry right now.

Figuring out your baby’s sleep can be one of the toughest parts of new parenthood—which is why we were so excited to add this new sleep program to our store. Owlet’s dream lab is an online, interactive program that offers step-by-step coaching and personalized sleep training programs to get your little one’s sleep on track. It was designed by two expert sleep coaches, and helps make one of the most challenging parts of parenting a little bit easier.

These. Pacifiers. Are. Genius! Truly. Babies love pacifiers, but so do older kids. And if you’re looking to break the habit, start here. Each pacifier gets shorter and shorter, reducing the satisfying sucking sensation for your little one and hopefully making the transition to going paci-free quick and painless.

This fun star teether offers lots of sensory fun for babies and toddlers. It’s made from soft BPA-free silicone and features five different textures for your baby to explore. There’s also a hole where you can attach it to a pacifier clip.

This may not be one of the most exciting adds to your registry, but it may be one of the most useful. This drying rack was specially designed to make cleaning and drying your pump parts easier and more efficient. It includes special brushes and a rack with ridges and prongs to help your parts dry through. It folds up compactly and fits easily in any diaper bag or tote.
