Best New Baby Products of 2019

Did you ever think you’d be totally obsessed with a cup that doesn’t spill? A pump that doesn’t make chug-chug-chug sounds? Or a teether that looks like a pineapple? Yep, welcome to parenthood…where these things are bliss. And better yet, they actually make life with a little one a whole lot easier.

From sleeping to feeding, potty training to strolling around town, these are the new products we think you should know about.

Because, You Rock

Rocking your baby is a special moment. But your trusty (heavy!) glider is bound to the nursery. Rock wherever you are with the Ready Rocker. All you need is a wall or a sturdy vertical surface to lean this portable, lightweight rocker up against (think: a chair, bed, airplane seat, park bench, couch). Gently push back to get the momentum going and you’ll be soothing and calming your kiddo in no time. The ergonomic design ensures you don’t strain your back or joints, and the stylish cover is stain resistant.

Wipes that Won’t Break the Bank

Want high-quality products, made with safe ingredients, at an affordable price? Brandless, an e-commerce fave, ships their products directly to you, eliminating the hidden costs between suppliers and retailers. Parents rave about their new baby collection, which includes everything from eco-friendly diapers to organic food pouches. Be sure to check out their gentle, plant-based wipes. They’re free from parabens, phthalates, sulfates, gluten, drying alcohol and fragrance.

A Car Seat That Lightens Your Load

To lug the car seat or not to lug the car seat…that is the question countless traveling families face. Now, bringing one along on trips is much easier. The Pico Travel Car Seat is super lightweight (just 8 pounds), compact, foldable and designed with sustainable materials. The frame is made of aerospace-grade aluminum engineered to absorb crash forces. And it passes the same U.S. safety regulations as traditional car seats. From rental cars to rideshares, airplanes to everyday use, toting and setting this seat up just may be the most seamless part of traveling with kids. (For 2+ years old).

Big Design, Lower Price

High-end strollers with all the perks (ie: various seating configurations, sturdy wheels, protective canopy with peek-a-boo window, large basket, one-handed fold, durable fabric) usually come with a hefty price tag. Mockingbird is changing the way parents shop for strollers—by cutting out the retail stores and markups—and shipping directly to your door. This super-stylish, well-designed ride is hundreds of dollars cheaper than other premium stroller brands, while boasting the same advantages. The brand ships it for free, gives you 30 days to try it out, and if you don’t love it—allows you to send it back at no cost.

The Miracle Cup

Stainless steel drinking vessels aren’t just for grownups who can’t live without hot coffee or cold water. Munchkin’s Stainless Steel 360 Cup is insulated and vacuum sealed, keeping your baby’s milk, water or juice cool for up to 15 hours. The spoutless 360° edge is dentist approved, promoting healthy mouth development. Plus, it seals shut when not in use, so you guys can go about your day, spill-free. And this sippy has no extra pieces to clean!

A Smart Wearable Pump

Ready to ditch the dangling bottles, messy cords and bras with holes? Yes, please! The wearable, silent Elvie breast pump is small and sleek enough to fit into your nursing bra. So you can pump anytime, anywhere—like at your desk, on your commute and more comfortably at home. Designed with smart technology, you can connect to the free Elvie Pump app to track milk production in real time, see pumping history and even control the pump. Keep in mind: It’s a single pump, so you’ll have to pump one breast at a time.

The Cool, Comfy Carrier

You have places to be and hands to use. That’s why the Tula Explore carrier is great to have from snoozy newborn days into busy toddlerhood. Designed for tots weighing 7-45 pounds, this carrier transitions between three ergonomic carry positions—front facing you, front facing out (a newer option for this beloved brand) and back carry. This versatile, machine-washable carrier is made from 100% breathable cotton and comes in tons of awesome patterns. Super comfy for you and your child, it has everything you need to head out, hands-free.

A Rest-Easy Monitor

Keep tabs on your snoozing baby with the Owlet Cam, a video and audio monitor that connects to your smartphone via Wi-Fi. Parents love the HD quality, room temperature tracker, wide angle view and easily adjustable magnetic base. The background audio feature allows you to listen in, while using other apps on your phone. It pairs with the Owlet Smart Sock 2 (sold separately or purchased as a bundle) for heart rate and oxygen level tracking while your baby sleeps.

Sweet Relief

Every tot needs a pal to help them get through bouts of teething pain and discomfort. Whether baby’s cutting front teeth or molars, Polly Pineapple is up to the task. Made of natural, 100% non-toxic rubber, the various textures on this fruity friend provide soothing relief to sore little gums. All that chomping goes toward charity—for every teether purchased, the company makes a donation that will feed a hungry American child for a week.

A Playful Potty

“Toilet” and “cute” don’t often make it into the same sentence, but this little potty (in disguise as Moby the whale) sure is. Aside from the adorable aesthetics, Moby makes potty training more approachable and imaginative for your child and less messy for you. It’s simple to clean the removable internal container and get back to your day. One more reason to love it: the company donates a portion of each Moby sale toward ocean cleanup.

Attractive Safety

Once your baby’s on the move, it’s more important than ever to have a safe place to play—away from the outlets, table corners, bookshelves and other potential danger zones. The Skip Hop Playview Expandable Enclosure contains your busy bee, while providing plenty of room for fun. The modern, low-key design fits nicely in any room.

A Standout Sleep Solution

Having a safe, comfortable, portable spot for your kiddo to snooze is key (especially when you travel!). Get more bang for your buck with the Halo Dreamnest, a 3-in-1 sleep solution that grows with your child, from birth to toddlerhood. During the newborn months, keep the bassinet next to your bed (you’ll love the removable rocking feature). Then transform the Dreamnest into a portable crib, and finally a cot for toddlers. The mattress and side panels are made with breathable mesh, ensuring open airflow so your baby doesn’t feel overheated. Plus, the mattress is removable for easy machine washing.

Tiny Utensils, Big Milestones

Your little one is destined to change the world and do amazing things (obviously). But they probably have to learn how to use a cup and a spoon first. Set tiny hands up for success with tiny utensils from ezpz. Both the soft silicone cup and spoon have non-slip grips and sensory bumps to help tots get the hang of self-feeding and drinking. Even the messiest meals are cute when you have these essentials at the table.

Go Easy

Obsessed with Ergo carriers? Their ultra-compact stroller is just as good. Perfect for city living and travel, the Metro is easy to maneuver (narrow doorways and public transportation have met their match). The cushy padding and ergonomic design make it extra comfy for your baby. And at just 13 pounds, you can wow passersby with your one-handed folding and lifting skills.
