Best Baby Products of 2023

There’s a steep learning curve when you become a new parent, especially when it comes to the ins and outs of baby gear. But do you want to know a secret? The best way to learn about what you and your baby may love (or not) is from experienced parents who have already tried all the things—so you don’t have to.

That’s why we surveyed thousands of Babylist families (almost 3,000, to be exact) and asked them to share the baby products they love and why. And share they sure did. These are the best baby products of 2022 according to Babylist parents.

Strollers

A stroller is one of the most popular—and most utilized—items of baby gear most parents own. Parents shared their favorites across a range of price points and noted the most important features: suspension and maneuverability, easy fold, ability to hold more than one child, basket size, durability and car seat compatibility.

UPPAbaby
Parents love this stroller’s all-wheel suspension, extra-large storage basket, high-end details and that it expands to accommodate up to three kids.
Graco
A single-to-double stroller with 15+ configurations and a super affordable price point.
Doona
This genius infant car seat + stroller hybrid makes new parenthood a lot easier.
Baby Jogger
Agile, affordable and the most effortless one-handed fold of any full-size stroller.
Evenflo
A travel system that won’t break the bank and includes a modular stroller and infant car seat.

Travel and Jogging Strollers

Many of you don’t own more than one stroller (or haven’t had the need for another quite yet), but of those who do, travel and jogging strollers top your list. The travel strollers you love share two essential features: a compact fold and a light weight. As for joggers, it’s all about suspension for a smooth ride over all types of terrain.

Babyzen
Easy to carry (11 pounds!), a one-hand fold and a removable, washable seat cover.
UPPAbaby
Can work as an everyday stroller or a travel stroller—there’s even a bassinet attachment.
Chicco
Affordable, lightweight and a four-position recline.
BOB Gear
Souped-up suspension to help you tackle any terrain.
Graco
The most affordable jogger on our best-of list.
Thule
Sleek, modern and perfect for a quick run or an off-the-beaten-path walk.

Car Seats

Deciding on a car seat can feel overwhelming. Your favorites focused on safety, weight and investing in a seat that will go the distance.

Nuna
The overwhelming parent favorite thanks to its light weight and clean, modern design.
Chicco
Affordable, safe, easy to install and compatible with lots of different strollers.
UPPAbaby
Parents love this seat that snaps right into UPPAbaby’s popular strollers (and lots more) and its easy installation system.
Graco
The only seat you need from the baby days through the big-kid years.
Nuna
This car seat rotates (really!) to make getting your baby in and out of the car a breeze.
Britax
Another all-in-one favorite: invest once, use it for years.

Bassinets

Lots of parents told us they skipped a bassinet and used a playard or a crib instead. (Which is totally fine and a great way to cut down on the amount of baby gear you own.) But of the parents who did choose a bassinet, these are their top picks.

Halo
This bedside bassinet adjusts so you can find the perfect position and keep baby close.
Baby Delight
Parents love that this bassinet slips right under the bed so it works even in small spaces.
Happiest Baby
A smart sleeper that auto-responds to your baby’s cries and promises longer stretches of sleep.

Nursery

These are the products that came up again and again when we asked Babylist parents what they couldn’t live without in their baby’s nursery. Nursery priorities? Safe sleep (breathable crib mattress FTW), a snug swaddle, soothing sounds and a clear monitor for a 24/7 view.

Newton Baby
Parents told us again and again that this breathable crib mattress gave them so much peace of mind.
Graco
A wallet-friendly pick that’s safe and comfortable.
Hatch
Over 60% of Babylist parents we surveyed agreed: this multi-function sound machine is a nursery must-have.
Yogasleep
This tried and true white noise machine has been soothing babies since 1962—and parents still love it.
Halo
Easy to get on (and off), even at 2 a.m.
Love to Dream
A unique arms-up swaddle that helps babies sleep in a more natural position.
Kyte Baby
The softest sleep sack around.
Nanit
Sleep stats and the ease of viewing your baby on your phone made this the #1 baby monitor pick.
VTech
Simple, reliable and ultra affordable.
