Being a parent is one of the greatest pleasures in life, but it’s also one of the most difficult. That’s why we love whenever we find cool stuff for our kids. Especially when that cool stuff makes the life of a parent easier! We’ve rounded up 15 of the coolest things for kids that were definitely designed with the busy parent in mind.
1. Baby clothes with a built-in activity monitor.
Not only is this onesie adorable, but it is also high tech. The little turtle on it actually monitors your baby’s sleeping habits and then sends the reports to your smartphone. It’s great for learning more about your baby’s sleep patterns.
2. A translator for your baby’s cries.
Crying is a baby’s first form of communication, but unfortunately, you still don’t alway know what they need. With The Infant Cries Translator, you can get a translation of your baby’s cries that are said to be 92% accurate. This is great for newborns!
3. Compact Strollers
This is perfect for the parent on the go! This compact stroller is completely safe for your baby and it folds up so well that you can fit it in a backpack. It’s no wonder this stroller has set world records for being the most compact out there!
4. Turn toothbrush time into a game.
This toothbrush can be connected to an app on your smartphone using Bluetooth. The app tracks the movements of the toothbrush. Kids gain points in the game when they hit certain spots while brushing. It’s great for you because you know your child’s teeth are being cleaned, and it’s fun for them because it’s an interactive game. Win-win!
5. Try cute bath toy storage.
This frog is perfect for bath time! The handle allows you to easily collect all of the toys, and the holes in the design make it easy to wash off all of the bubbles. Once everything is clean, just attach the frog to the tub wall and you’re ready to go for next time!
6. Self-Heating Baby Bottles
Now, this is great! Never again will you worry about heating up a bottle while you’re out with your baby. This one can heat up in under four minutes using a single-use cartridge filled with salt and water.
7. Sticker Thermometers
If you’ve ever had a sick child, then you know how difficult it can be to get their temperature. That’s why this sticker thermometer is so great. You can leave it on your child’s skin while they sleep or rest, and the sticker will monitor their temperature and send the results right to your phone.
8. The hands-free way to rock your baby to sleep.
This little device attaches to the handle of any stroller. It mimics the movement of rocking a baby in your arms. It’s the perfect tool for a busy parent.
9. A food container that’s also a spoon.
Don’t we all want to cut back on dinner time messes? This handy device keeps everything contained and neat. It’s also perfect for feeding your baby when you’re traveling. Whatever they don’t finish can be sealed and saved for the next time.
10. Child Safety Bracelet
Safety bracelets for children connect right to your phone. No longer do you have to worry about losing your child. If they move beyond the radius you’ve set in the app, you’ll get a warning signal. You can even add people to the app, such as your partner or babysitters.
11. The Teething Pacifier
This binky is a pacifier and a teether all in one! Its simple design stimulates all areas of your baby’s gums. In addition to that, it’s dishwasher safe making it super easy to keep clean.
12. Make dinner fun with these plates.
No playing with your food is an outdated rule. These fun plate designs create fun food presentations that will leave any picky eater content.
13. Illuminated Balls
These are perfect for any little one who is afraid of the dark. The little light up balls won’t interfere with their sleep in bed, plus they can be carried when they get up from bed in the middle of the night.
14. Here comes the airplane.
This is another solution for picky eaters! This cute set makes dinner time fun for the baby, and–if we’re being completely honest–for the parents, too.
15. A bed designed for new parents.
If you’re a new parent, this bed is going to change your life. The inset crib keeps your baby close by without completely disturbing your sleep when they wake up. How great is that?
