16 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 anyway because there are no sick days, no vacation, and no coffee breaks (unless you enjoy coffee you brew yourself before getting caught 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 to make it the tiniest bit easier is a miracle. Alas, here are 16 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 always comes first with 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

We get it, moms. Sometimes you just need a cocktail. Leave your worries behind on girls’ night out, and rest assured that your mother’s milk is OK for baby consumption with these handy alcohol test strips. Get fast results so you can breastfeed with peace of mind.

Kiinde Twist Breastfeeding Gift Set

Owlet Smart Sock 3 Wearable Baby Monitor

This smart sock gently wraps around your baby’s foot to monitor their heart rate, oxygen level and sleep using pulse oximetry technology. The information is then sent to your smartphone via Bluetooth to keep you informed. You’ll all be able to sleep a little easier.

Owlet Cam Smart Baby Monitor

Keep an eye on your little bundle at all times and ease stress when transitioning to sleeping in separate rooms. This smart baby monitor features night vision and two-way audio, and it even lets you check the room’s temperature and humidity. After all, a room that’s too hot or too cold will result in a non-sleeping baby.

Baby Einstein Sea Dreams Soother

Munchkin Lulla-Vibe Vibrating Mattress Pad
