Top Baby Gadgets of 2018

Certified Professional Photographer | Newborn Photographer

There are literally MILLIONS of baby gadgets out there & the process of choosing may seem quite daunting. We’ve polled our clients & consulted some trustworthy resources to bring you a list of some of the best baby gadgets of 2018. As a parent, I always looked for products that would make life with a baby easier. I always valued data like this. Who has time to research it all? We use some of these in studio & just love them.

The Baby Shusher – Sleep Miracle Soother. We LOVE the baby shusher & use it during our newborn photo sessions. It provides a constant shushing sound that soothes baby back to sleep. Many of our parents have purchased one & say they’d never go without it.

Fisher Price Rock ‘N Play Sleeper with Smart Connect has two speeds & two customizable modes for nap-time or nighttime. It plays soothing sounds & music, has a light show & optional vibration. Control the rock ‘n play sleeper from the convenience of your smart phone. Let’s face it – sometimes you just need a safe, soothing place to entertain baby while you’re making dinner.

Baby Brezza Formula Pro – this thing is unreal. It’s like a Keurig for babies! Fill the separate water & powdered formula reservoirs then, at the push of a button, get a bottle of perfectly mixed formula at the perfect feeding temp. No more measuring, mixing or heating in the middle of the night.

Infant Optics Baby Monitor – has an interchangeable lens so you can get the best viewing angle of your baby. This may seem silly but not all nurseries are created equal & sometimes you need to zoom in or prefer a wider angle. You can pan/tilt/zoom remotely as well.

Baby Brezza Food Pouches – baby food is pricey & many parents prefer to know exactly what baby is eating. These pouches are great! They’re inexpensive, reusable, durable, have a wide opening to easily fill them & they’re dishwasher safe!

Nested Bean Zen Swaddle – can’t swaddle to save your life? No problem! These little swaddle sacks are awesome! They are so easy anyone can use them. Our parents have reported the swaddle sacks with velcro closure often startle their babies, so this one is a top pick. The sacks are lightly weighted to mimic the feeling of being held. Parents say their babies sleep longer & more soundly within a few days of using these. Who couldn’t use a little more sleep?

We hope this list was helpful & you’ve enjoyed learning about some of the top baby items our parents can’t live without!

Capturing Addison’s newborn photos was a bitter sweet experience for me.  You see, I watched her mother grow into a young woman.  She use to babysit my own children, and I photographed her wedding a few short years ago.  First of all, it made me realize that I am getting OLD.  Secondly, it made me realize how quickly time passes.  I realized in that moment, that my kids are about ready to fly the coop.  Where did all of that time go?  I started thinking back to when my own children were newborns and now, they’re both driving & nearly out of high school.  I hope I’ve given them all of the survival tactics they need to encounter this crazy world we live in.  Anyway, I digress.

Addy was just perfect for her newborn photo session!  She didn’t make a peep & seeing the pure joy on her parents’ faces gave me a warm fuzzy feeling.  I really am very blessed to have such wonderful clients who have become friends through the years.  It’s truly an honor to watch their families grow.  Tiff & Jake, thank you so much for sharing your sweet little 7 pound, 4 ounce bundle of joy with me!  She truly is a treasure & I look forward to watching her grow.
