If you’ve gone to a baby shower lately, you’ve probably seen some of the super cool products that are on the market for babies, toddlers, and mommas! I saw a post the other day about some UH-MAY-ZING gear for littles and HAD to share!

 

Star Kids Snack & Play Travel Tray

This travel tray is PERFECT for those long road trips that you want your kids to be occupied with toys but don’t want to be spending your time dislocating your arm as you paw around the floorboard for that toy truck that Little Johnny dropped for the millionth time!

 

Sippy Sure The Medicine Dispensing Sippy Cup

I don’t know about you, but I loathe giving Huff the Tot medicine. For some reason when she sees that dropper of Tylenol, she loses her every-lovin’ mind! She flails her arms around and ends up spilling most of it down her shirt leaving me to try and calculate just how much she actually got in her system. This would help SOOOO much with those battles! The Sippy Sure has a removable dosage cup so you can get your little one to take their meds without spilling it everywhere!

 

PhillUp Hangable Kid’s Cups

These awesome cups were designed by parents that were sick and tired of washing tons of dishes everyday because their kids “needed” a new cup every time they got a drink of water. Phillup Cups stick to glass, metal, tile and fiberglass and are color-coded for each kid!

 

SnipSnap

There have been so many times that we’ve gone out to eat, only to realize we’ve left Huff the Tot’s sippy cup at home. And, unfortunately, not every restaurant has kid’s cups or lids (though you’d think they would). Enter, SnipSnap. This handy little device can transform any cup or glass into a spill-proof kid’s cup! They come in Snug Spouts (AKA, sippy cups) or Snug Straws (in the picture above) for older kids!

 

MilkSense

Milk-Sense

I don’t know about any other breastfeeding mommas, but I always hate getting asked the question, “How much is your baby eating at every feeding?” Uh, I don’t know. Its not like these milk makers come with an indicator that shows my kiddo ate four ounces. Until NOW. Meet MilkSense: The Personal Breastfeeding Monitor. This handy dandy tool calculates how much milk is in each breast before each feeding as well as after so you know how much he’s taking in! Awesome right?!

 

What about you? Do you know of any tech or gear that are helpful hacks for parents? Share in the comments below!

Baby Tech

I’ve been noticing that the running theme on my blog this week has been all about baby. So I thought, maybe I should shake things up a bit with a non-baby related post. But then Fat Amy popped into my head:

So get ready for another baby post!

I swear, this one will be fun though. Promise. Well, maybe.

Now that the baby shower is over and the nursery is almost completed, Huff the Hubs and I are starting to look over what we have for our spawn. There isn’t really anything we need but there are some things we want. Most of it is totally impractical but so awesome!

I mean, look at all these cool gadgets and gizmos (a plenty! <– Disney nerds unite!) I found on Pinterest!

This vest is from BobalongBaby.com. Its designed to put the whole “I’ll-drop-this-bottle-or-sippy-cup-and-see-how-many-times-I-can-get-my-Mommy-to-pick-it-up-before-she-freaks-out” game to rest.

One step closer to the Wall-E chairs...

One step closer to the Wall-E chairs…

The vest comfortably attaches to your baby and the bottle (or pacifier). When the baby drops the bottle, it goes NOWHERE. It stays right there in front of your kiddo, leaving you free to actually eat a warm meal. I wonder how long it’ll be before they make one for adults with adult beverages…?

 

All too often, I hear parents lament how they wished they new what their baby’s cries meant. Especially when its 2:00 a.m. and NOTHING seems to soothe the little banshee. Apparently, the Why Cry Baby Analyzer has the answer!

Does this remind anyone else of "Simon" from the 80's?

Does this remind anyone else of “Simon” from the 80’s?

You set the monitor up in the nursery and wait for the Little to start wailing. Then, the cry analyzer lights up, indicating why he or she is going bat-crap crazy. (I think Huff the Hubs would like one of these for me! Sure would cut down on unnecessary arguments. HA!) Allegedly, it has a 90% accuracy rating…

 

My Facebook followers have probably seen the onsie I got for Hermione. It says: “Future Engineer, like my daddy!” Yes, we expect great things from our padawan. So when I saw this book, I seriously contemplated purchasing it:

She'll be re-writing code by the time she's 3.

She’ll be re-writing code by the time she’s 3.

Help start your kid on the right path and get them some educational books! Especially if you expect them to take care of you in your old age; college won’t pay for itself!

 

All kids are different. They have their own personalities, their own quirks, their own preferences. But, if there’s one thing that makes ALL children the same, its the fact that they’re messy. My child will be especially messy. My nickname is “Messy Jessie”. I can’t go one meal without getting something all over me. To cut these inevitable messes down, though, there’s the Gyrobowl!

Gimme those Cheerios!

Gimme those Cheerios!

This is known as the kid-proof, spill-proof bowl. The outer ring keeps the bowl steady no matter how a child may drag it, topple it, or spin it. I truly want one for myself!

 

Have you seen any cool kid tech lately?
