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.
Dreambaby® Room and Bath Duck Thermometer
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.
UpSpring Milkscreen Breast Milk Alcohol Test Strips
Moms, we get it. Sometimes you just need a cocktail. Leave your worries behind on Girls’ Night Out. You can rest assured that your Mother’s Milk is OK for baby consumption with these handy alcohol test strips. Get fast results so you can breast feed with peace of mind.
Some toddlers are professional sleep fighters. Major FOMO is to blame for this. Little ones just don’t want to miss out on a single minute of play time. A super cool nightlight that they can play with while chilling out in bed will be sure to get those peepers closed for the night in no time.
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.
No baby wants to sit still while you attempt to take their temperature. They apparently didn’t get the memo that it’s kind of your job to know when they are getting sick. This is perhaps the easiest way to get those important digits without a wiggling fuss from your little infant.
This smart snack gently wraps around your newborn or infant’s foot to monitor their heart rate, oxygen levels and sleep using pulse oximetry technology. This information is then sent to your smartphone via Bluetooth to keep you informed. You’ll all be able to sleep a little easier.
If over 25 minutes of soft music and lights won’t put Junior to bed, we don’t know what will. This little soother is one of the coolest nursery gadgets on the market, complete with a convenient remote control you can use from the other room.
Be sure to put this formula mixer on your must-have baby gear list. Easily measure and mix formula and water with a touch of a button because we all know how a few seconds seem to last a lifetime when your baby is screaming for a bottle.
Formula + disposable water bottle + this bottle cap adapter = instant and easily formula for baby. Never scramble to wash a bottle again while you’re attempting to have a life outside the home with baby.
Shushing may seem like an easy task but try doing it for 15 minutes straight and you will find out what a tongue cramp feels like. This magic machine includes a timer and volume control to have your baby out like a light in no time.
Some babies love car rides while others use it as practice time to perfect their wail. Ease those fussy passengers with the LED lights and songs to keep them entertained or soothing noises to get them to sleep.
Gentle vibrations often do the trick with fussy babies fighting sleep. Instead of using a bouncer or swing and then trying ever so gently to transfer your infant into a crib, just slip the Lulla-Vibe under the crib mattress. Genius, right?
This may seem like a lot of products, but we promise you’ll get plenty of use and be very thankful you have them! Don’t forget to shop with Rakuten for baby coupons and Cash Back on every purchase. You can earn Cash Back in-store, too!
