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.
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.
Make it easier for your baby (and you) to sleep every night with this sound machine that also works as a night-light. It features 11 sounds, such as rain, ocean and water streams, as well as three classic lullabies.
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.
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.
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.
Baby Brezza® Formula Pro Advanced Formula Dispenser
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.
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!
