Taking care of a baby can be difficult, and going outside with them even tougher. The good news is that there are many gadgets on the market that can help parents keep their babies comfortable. So, let’s look at some of the best gadgets out there to help you have an easier time when heading outside with your little one.
Nobody wants to be that parent everybody side-eyes in public because of their noisy baby. A baby shusher acts like a sound machine you can place by an infant’s ear that provides continuous shushing sounds making it easier for them to fall asleep. Gro-hush is another similar product but instead of shushing noises, it provides a variety of tunes like white noise, a heart beat, or ocean waves that help lull your child into a relaxed state. The best part about these innovations is that they’re portable and easy to use, so carrying them around is very convenient.
Baby Bottle Warmer
This travel car baby bottle warmer allows you to heat bottles from cold to warm in minutes. It uses a flexible heating band with an adjustable strap that fits all types of baby bottle brands. The gadget also comes with a digital thermometer that connects to the car adapter plug. This displays the current temp and the remaining time the contents of the bottle will stay warm.
Tablet mounts are great devices for both babies and toddlers, since you can strap them on almost anything. They work well when attached behind car headrests, but are especially helpful when you’re taking your baby outside. Designs like the iLatch can be attached to strollers in order to provide your children with a distraction while you are out and about. This is especially useful if you are transporting two children at the same time as one crying baby will often set off the other. In iCandy’s list of double pushchairs they show how tandem designs allow “for spacious room between the baby and toddler.” This means that it is possible to attach a tablet without it taking up too much of the available space, keeping your children comfortably entertained. This type of gadget is perfect if your baby starts to get restless, as it will keep them distracted. If you don’t have a tablet however, don’t fret. Another option is to hand your child an interesting toy, like the Blipbox Toy Synthesizer, while strolling around. Just make sure you’re not in a place where you can’t make noise.
When your little one starts to feel uncomfortable, Best Products suggests bringing out this genius baby device. The gadget works as a soothing belt to warm your baby’s tummy and provide comforting pressure. Aside from soothing colic, it also serves as a cute toy they can play with.
Baby Bottle Sling
In times when you need an extra hand to feed your baby, you can use this simple but innovative baby bottle sling. It’s a device made out of cloth you can attach to a baby carrier or a stroller. This works best for older babies, since they can control the feeding without you worrying about the bottle falling or it being wrongly positioned.
