The Most Helpful Products for New Parents

Products that help make parenting a little bit easier

As a parent, I understand the difficulties that come along with parenting. Recently, though there have been more technological strides by companies to help make parenting a little easier. This is why I will share with you some of the products I have used with my own child and also products I wish I had known about before, or that I think are just an amazing idea and want to share them with other people.

Traveling made easier

Today, I saw this cool convertible suitcase that is designed to make traveling easier for parents who have babies. It can really be daunting just imagining traveling with a baby, let alone actually doing it. This product was developed in France and seems to be fairly new on the market. You can buy it for 20% off now on their website:

Here is another one that I think is a pretty good idea. Children need to stay busy on planes and bus rides, so this Hippococo Kids Travel Tray looks like it will help with solving this problem parents have while traveling.

Learning made easier

As a parent, you always want to make sure your child learns what he or she needs to learn for school. For me, I also want to ensure that my daughter will be an enthusiastic learner. I want her to be excited about learning new things. Learning how to read is one thing that can be made boring to learn or it can be taught in fun ways. Recently, I found this online and decided to try it out with my daughter and she just loved it. She put all of the puzzle pieces together and then started to categorize the words into groups. I recommend Star Right Educational Spelling Puzzle Game for preschoolers or kindergarteners for learning new words and phonics.

This is a great one as well for learning. The Smart Start Puppy Up by PlayMonster was another hit for my five-year-old daughter. She instantly wanted to start playing with this without even realizing she was learning math from it.

Mealtime made easier

Cleaning up can be a big chore for parents with toddlers and babies, but it does not have to be if you use things that minimize the cleanup time. I tried a lot of different types of bibs for my daughter when she was little and in the end, this type of silicon bib was the style I found easiest to clean after meals. This is just an example of one. There are a bunch of different brands with the same style of silicon bib.

Injury prevention for crawlers and toddlers

One of the biggest fears of parents is that their little one will get hurt. This is where these nifty little knee pads for crawling come in handy. I received some knee pads for my daughter and they helped in preventing her from hurting her knees as much when she was crawling and starting to walk. I found these really cute Sibosen baby knee pads on Amazon, but there are so many different styles you can find there that you can choose from to suit your style preferences.

I hope this list is helpful for you whether you are a parent or going to be a parent soon, or just looking for a gift to give a parent. Parenting can be daunting at times and we often do not know which thing will work best for our kids or if it is worth the money to purchase something, so hopefully, I have helped you a little bit with this list of things that could be helpful during your parenting journey.
