6 baby items you never knew you needed

You know the big ones, of course – your car seats, strollers, cribs, and diapers, to name a few. But once baby arrives, you’ll want to make your life as easy as possible. Here are 6 baby items you never knew you needed!

  1. Back seat mirror
    Sure, so your baby is a perfectly well-behaved, sedentary little angel in your belly (other than those late-night kicks), but once she starts exploring the world, that can change fast. A back seat mirror for your car lets you keep an eye on your little one(s) while you drive along to wherever your flock is headed.
  2. Night light and white noise device
    A night light will help you navigate baby’s room when it’s time for a midnight feeding! A dim room will help keep baby from totally waking up, and allow your little one to drift peacefully off to dreamland as soon as you’re done.
    Many parents also swear by a white noise device, which creates soothing, repetitive sounds similar to those baby might have heard in the womb, while drowning out the distracting ones like phones, the doorbell, or you!
  3. Wipe warmer
    Just put yourself in baby’s booties for a second: would you rather a cold wipe, or a warm one? Wipe warmers aren’t at the top of most registry checklists, but they’re a nice extra that keeps baby as comfy as possible (which often makes your life as a new mom easier, too).
  4. Sterilizer
    Designed to be efficient and easy to use, this nifty accessory allows you to spend less time with chores, and more time with baby. A microwave sterilizer sterilizes bottles, nipples and pacifiers in minutes, while the intense steam of an electric steam sterilizer eliminates 99.9% of bacteria.
  5. Forehead thermometer
    The role of healthcare provider is an important one for any parent, but you’ll probably need a thermometer to know when to call in the real experts.
  6. Medicine-dispensing pacifier
    Giving medicine to a baby is a notoriously difficult endeavor and has been known to be challenging to many parents, just dreaming of the day that medicine comes in a “Just Like Mom’s Breast Milk” flavor. Instead of battling against baby, go for a medicine-dispensing pacifier. It’s just like a regular pacifier, but serves as your handy little assistant when you need it.

Although some of these items aren’t must-haves for every baby, they’ll all make your life easier, and keep your baby more comfortable.

You can find these items, and even more baby products you never you needed (and all of those you knew about, too) at Babies“R”Us.
