From the latest in strollers to smart items and diaper subscriptions that will save you time and money, our list is full of the latest trending innovations, classic favorites, and genuinely useful baby gear.

expert tip
The most helpful way to ensure your baby’s sleep stays on track while traveling is to recreate their sleep space. Bring familiar sleep associations from home, such as a sleep sack, lovey, or sound machine.

Car Seats

According to Michelle Pratt, founder of Safe in the Seat, this lightweight seat has a seat belt lock-off that makes installation very easy. It even fits preemies and is great if you need to fit three car seats across in the back seat.
This infant car seat is also recommended by Pratt because of its quick installation, added safety features, and compact design. “It’s one of the most compact infant seats available, so it’s a great option for families who have smaller vehicles and/or tall front passengers," she noted.
With a great safety rating and sturdy convertible construction, this car seat feels more durable than some others—which is a major plus. The seat’s straps are also easy to use and it’s, overall, easy to install in a car.
According to Pratt, this car seat has the same shell and features as other, higher-priced models but this one is at a much more affordable price for $159.
At only 17" wide, this new release by Britax is one of Pratt's top convertible car seat picks to fit three across. It's easy to install and uses naturally flame retardant—and machine-washable—fabric.

When doing the final car seat installation check, ensure it doesn't move more than 1 inch when checked at the belt path. The belt path is where you connect your car seat to your car! Give it a handshake and make sure it's in there nice and tight.

The Best Baby Registries of 2024

everymom tip
Mamas can begin building their registry as soon as they find out they’re pregnant—or adopting. It’s best to start early, although many expecting parents wait until around 12 weeks.
