With so many baby products to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which ones are actually worth the hype. There are so many different variations of any baby product. No matter how many baby blogs you read or rewards the product gets, it can be extremely overwhelming when deciding what bassinet to order or what stroller to use. It takes a lot of trial and error to find the right baby product that works for you. Although one product might get all the best reviews and recommendations, it might not be what you need. Even if a product gets the best reviews, it doesn’t mean it’s the number one option out there. Since I know how difficult it can be to navigate the world of the top baby products, I wanted to put together a post rounding up 4 baby products that are actually worth the hype (in my opinion). We absolutely love these 4 products and couldn’t imagine our lives without them. Whether you’re a new mom, currently expecting, or looking for a baby shower present, these 4 products have my stamp of approval! Always remember, do what works for you and your baby! Every person I know recommended the snoo, so we purchased it thinking Sage would love it, and unfortunately, it didn’t work for her! It goes to show you that there is no right or wrong product. Listen to your baby and do what is best for them.
Keep reading for the four baby products I think are totally worth the hype.
Doona™ All-in-One Infant Car Seat/Stroller
This is hands down one of the best strollers out there. It's an all-in-one car seat and stroller and is insanely functional. Being a first-time mom, I'm all about function. Also, when a product can do more than one thing, it makes my life so much easier! The DOONA stroller is a must-have on your baby registry. We bring it everywhere with us and it's so easy for me to use when I'm without Sam. We always have so much stuff to carry, and the integrated wheels make it easy to unfold and convert into a stroller in one simple step.
As a first-time parent, you're always worried about pretty much everything! Whenever there is a product that takes away some worry, it's a must-have, in my opinion. That's why we love the Hatch Grow Digital Changing Pad. Not only is it an amazing changing pad, but it also has a built-in scale so we can keep track of Sage's weight. Especially when we first brought her home, we were so nervous about her weight and making sure she was being fed enough. You can download the app on your phone and also track their feeding. Hatch has so many other incredible smart products. I love this brand so much!
I had a tough time putting Sage down the first couple of weeks she was home. I loved holding her in my arms, but it got to the point where I couldn't get anything done around the house. As much as I loved holding her at all times of the day, I needed a rest, so we got the BABYBJÖRN® Bouncer Bliss, and it's been the best. It's battery and cord-free and is powered by you or your baby. I just put it down by my feet and bounce her while I'm on the computer. It's super lightweight and easy to move around. The rocking is also perfect for your baby because it helps them develop balance! Once your baby grows out of it, you can turn it into a comfy chair- such an amazing feature!
Before we had the HALO Bassinet, Sage slept in the snoo. The snoo was one of the top bassinets I saw, so I figured it was going to be amazing. Unfortunately, Sage did not like it at all! I'm sure it works for some, but it definitely didn't live up to its name for us. We switched her over to the HALO Bassinet, and she loved it right away. It has 360-degree rotation plus music, vibration, and a night light. You can keep it close to your bed if needed and just swivel it around without disturbing your baby. I also love how it has mesh on the sides so I can see Sage! This is such an incredible bassinet and won't break the bank like the snoo!
