Are you having trouble thinking of a gift for your daughter-in-law's baby shower, or is your best friend is expecting and you don't know what to get her? Instead of defaulting to clothes the little bundle will wear only once, get them something they will use well into the toddler years.
As a mom, life can get overwhelming and it seems like your days are just whizzing past. You don't have time to look up product reviews for every new item you need, or frankly even head to the store to pick it up.
Since becoming a mom, I have relied on Amazon to deliver what I need, right to my door. It's especially helpful on those days where I am covered in baby spit-up, or I have been up all night rocking babe to sleep.
Skip all the extra work, and check out this list I have put together for the best baby and kid products that parents will love! Most of them I still use even now that my baby has become a toddler.
When your baby is still little, the Boba is the perfect wrap for around the house. Whether you need to get some laundry put away or you just want to have your hands free, snuggle up with your little one in the gorgeous wrap.
"I am not at all the type of mom who knows about specific wraps or is super into "baby wearing", I was simply a first time mom who thought the baby bjorn looked a little uncomfortable. So, I bought this, watched a Youtube tutorial about how to wrap it (VERY helpful!) and my baby girl loved it! Once in a while she would cry for no reason and once I put her in here she would fall right asleep. My daughter is 6.5 months old now and does not enjoy it even with her legs free (there is a different way to place older babies) and I really miss the days of her snuggled tight to me! Very easy and very useful. I machine washed and dried it several times with no issue! Also I am plus sized!"
The key to any successful baby product is multi-functional! This car seat canopy is everything you will need to keep you and your little one comfortable. From blocking the sun and wind in the car seat to acting as a wrap in the grocery cart, and you can even use it as a stylish nursing cover when you are on the go.
"I was extremely impressed when I opened this nursing cover because of how comfortable the material is! It is very soft, the perfect size, and costs MUCH less than other competitors. Most of the higher priced items I've seen do not come with the extra storage case and bandana bibs either. For the fantastic price, I will absolutely be buying this as a shower gift for my nursing friends. It has so many multi use functions and is just what I was looking for!"
This is a toy that will grow with your little one. From initially loving the sounds it makes, to being able to count the coins and identify the groceries, this cash register will be a hit for your kids.
"I purchased this Leap-frog cash register for my 3-year-old granddaughter for Christmas--and it was hit! Before she'd finished unwrapping the rest of her gifts, she was running to me to open it up and let her play. She loves the sounds it makes as she rings items up! She plays shop girl with her older sister, runs their "cards" to make their purchases, and so far, she's been meticulous about keeping all of the bits and pieces that came along with it together because she loves it all so much! Great gift!"
This is a really fun toy that will keep your kids occupied for hours. I initially bought them for a our first plane ride and it's amazing how much they kept my little one quite for the ride. It really helps build strength and dexterity in your kids hands.
"My son is a hard sell. He is 4 years old and I bought these for his birthday because he only likes to play with balls or things with suction cups. I thought "wow this is cool," then I got them...oh my goodness they were a blast, my husband was hanging them from the ceiling, and my kids were sticking them everywhere they could. at one point we had the entire package stuck together in one long string and hanging from the ceiling! HOURS of Fun for ALL ages!!!"
If you're tired of lifting your toddler to the sink or having them drag around the stool, this gadget will make your life easier. Attach it around any faucet and have the stream extend closer to them.
"I bought these and gave one to my mom to use at her house when my daughter (2 years old) stays there. Our faucets are completely different, but these worked great for both! My daughter loves washing her hands and watching the water come out of the froggie's mouth. Perfect for what we needed, and extends the water enough for her to be able to wash hands and brush her teeth."
If there is one thing that should be on every mom's registry is this outdoor blanket. I initially overlooked it, but then ended up buying it myself and it gets so much use! It goes into the washing machine so easily and folds up to the perfect size that you can hang it off the handles of your stroller.
"I did a lot of research before purchasing an outdoor blanket, and am so happy that I went with this one. As a new mom, I didn't realize that most of the time when you go to a park the grass has some condensation on it, so a water resistant blanket is a must! This blanket definitely did the job, no moisture soaked through it at all, and it was still soft enough to sit on comfortably."
Let's be honest, you change a lot of diapers. Whether it's 12 diapers a day of newborn poop or 2-3 poopy toddler diapers, this Diaper Genie will be your savior! I find I use it more now that I have a toddler, because those diapers stink way worse than when she was a newborn.
"We love our diaper genies. Our other has lasted through quite a few kids, so it's just time for another one. It holds a lot of dirty diapers and it doesn't stink. The refills aren't cheap, but this is one area that I just need it to work and work well. I'll pay for that!This one is slightly different than our last one, but it works just as well if not better. It has the same function and works the same way, but it's been re-styled. I'm really happy with it and I definitely suggest it!"
For breastfeeding moms this nursing pillow is exactly what you need. You know you can be trapped there for a very long time, so being comfortable is key! With a handy pocket to store your phone, water bottle or snacks, you can get ready to get settled for however long it takes your baby to finish eating.
"Using this now for my 2nd bub in 2 years and it has held up really well.I actually use it a lot to help me multi task - I work at my desk while feeding and just prop it up on the edge - has really helped me to be productive and be a work at home mom."
Protect your little one from bumping their head in the tub and give them something to smile at during bath time.
"This fits my tub perfectly! Super cute and functional. It easily went on and the spout still functions no issues! I definitely feel more confident my little one's head is safe from bumps with this. I would recommend this product to anyone!"

"I was skeptical about the quality of the tubs coz i was buying this for the # of tubs it comes with (wanted to have one in each room of the house), but i see no reason to complain about the quality of the tub, it snaps ok with a faint click sound and keeps the wipes fresh/wet. Now coming to the quality of the wipes itself, they are thicker than most of the other wipes on the market."
