22 Smart Baby Gadgets to Make Parenting Easier

As a parent and baby wrangler, there are days when you just “can’t even” but then you do it anyway because there are no sick days, no vacation, no coffee breaks (unless you enjoy coffee that you brew yourself before getting caught up in a diaper disaster, then try to reheat in the microwave, then forget about, then give up and drink cold). Taking care of a baby is rough stuff (even more so when they’re a newborn or infant!) and any little thing on this earth to make it the tiniest bit easier is a miracle. Alas, here are 22 little miracles  of technology in the form of super smart baby gadgets you can get with Cash Back at Rakuten.

Safety is always first when it comes to bath time. Be sure your infant’s bath water is a safe temperature every time with this easy-to-read thermometer in a super cute duck shape! The best part–a red light means the water is too hot and a green light means the water is too cold.

Kiinde Twist Breastfeeding Gift Set

Even when breast feeding comes naturally to new moms, it is still a time-consuming and physically draining (pun intended) task. With this all-inclusive breast feeding set, you can pump, store and feed with the same pouches so you don’t lose a drop of that liquid gold. 

Vicks Digital Pacifier Thermometer
