HALO SleepSack IdealTemp Swaddle, $29.99
This cozy swaddle has a lot going for it, including features for both safety and comfort. The HALO SleepSack Ideal Temp Swaddle gives parents options when it comes to positioning baby for sleep. Arms in? Check. Arms out? That works too. The inverted zipper also helps with easier diaper changes. But the coolest part of this swaddle is the temperature-regulating fabric that absorbs, stores and releases heat depending on baby’s body temperature. That technology helps your little one get a more restful night’s sleep. And who doesn’t need that? The gentle reminder of “Back is Best” on the front of the swaddle reminds parents about the recommendation from pediatricians to place baby on their back for safe sleeping.
Munchkin Fresh Feeder 2-Pack, $6.97
When it comes to feeding your baby safely, these colorful and easy-to-hold Fresh Feeders from Munchkin are super helpful for parents. The BPA-free feeders, which help reduce the risk of choking, allow your child to practice independent eating while keeping solid foods safely tucked into a mesh pouch. Parents and caregivers can place fresh or frozen fruits or vegetables in the pouch, so baby can snack on smaller bites. Keep in mind that this product is for kids ages 6 months and older.
Keeping baby safe during bath time means making sure the water temperature is just right. The b&h Baby Bath and Room Thermometer is an adorable bath toy and digital thermometer that helps with just that. While the default setting is 102 degrees Fahrenheit for the high-temperature alert, parents and caregivers can manually set the temperature (in Fahrenheit or Celsius). Keep in mind that the Mayo Clinic recommends bath water be around 100 degrees Fahrenheit. When the water is too hot, the device will blink red with a sound alert, letting parents know that the bath is not safe for baby.
