As soon as their baby is born, parents are often eager to try all the baby products that they have bought or which they have received as gifts.

Keep in mind that some baby products, like the Bumbo Baby Seat or a Baby Jogger jogging stroller, have specific age and/or weight requirements. For example, you should use a Bumbo Baby Seat until your baby is at least six to eight weeks old and you shouldn't use the Baby Jogger jogging stroller until your baby is at least six month old.

Best Baby Products

There aren't necessarily any "best" baby products or essential baby products that you just can't do without. Some are rather helpful though and will make taking care of your baby a bit easier.

Baby products that we have found useful with our baby include a:

  • Graco SnugRide Baby Car Seat
  • Medela Pump in Style Breast Pump
  • Boppy nursing pillow
  • Graco Mosaic Stroller
  • Maya Wrap Sling
  • Graco Pack N' Play Playard, which includes a removable bassinet and changing table
  • Fisher-Price Cradle Swing
  • Safety 1st Sight and Sound Baby Monitor
  • Fisher-Price Baby Papasan Infant Seat
  • Infantino Sling Rider
  • Fisher-Price Aquarium Bathtub
  • BUMBO Baby Seat
  • Fisher-Price Rainforest Melodies & Lights Deluxe Gym mat
  • Fisher-Price Soothing Motion Glider
  • Playtex Diaper Genie
Keep in mind that it is more the products (which are displayed in bold type above) -- not necessarily the brands -- that make these baby products useful. So while it might be nice to have an $800 Stokke or Bugaboo baby stroller, you don't necessarily need one.
