For Teething Terrors: Wink Naturals Cool Gums Teething Gel

From non-stop fussiness to sleepless nights, teething can be a literal nightmare for both babies and parents. That’s why we love Wink Naturals’ Teething Gel. Free from harmful chemicals like Benzocaine or Belladona that are found in similar products, this all-natural teething gel soothes and cools tender gums quickly.

For Calming Colic: Lollaland Anti-Colic Pacifier, Feeding Nipples & Bottle

Having a crying, inconsolable newborn is enough to give any new parent anxiety. Colic is often the culprit – with extra gas in the abdomen resulting in discomfort for your little one. Fortunately, our friends at Lollaland designed dishwasher-safe glass bottles with stage 1, slow-flow nipples that feature an anti-colic channel vent. By equalizing the pressure within the bottles, the amount of unwanted air swallowed by your baby is minimized. In other words, fewer tears and more smiles. Also, the vent is built into the nipple, so there are no extra parts to clean. In other words, more smiles for parents, too.

For Staying Organized: Storksak Diaper Bags

We may be a bit biased, but each of our diaper bags has been designed to meet the unique styles and needs of parents. From our ultra-functional Travel Backpack that dads love to our chic and versatile Emma diaper bag, there’s literally something for everyone. Since there is no “one size fits all” diaper bag, we have plenty of options to keep moms, dads and caretakers organized on-the-go.

For Bonding Time: XOXO Buckle Wrap Baby Carrier

From happier babies to better bonding with your little one, using a baby carrier can drastically improve the relationship between you and your child. When it comes to babywearing, we are smitten with XOXO Baby Carrier’s Buckle Wrap. This breathable carrier’s buckle makes it easy to use while providing the snug hug of a wrap.
