  • Stina & Mae

    Organic Cotton Bibs and Burp Cloth

    This bib and burp cloth set will help you stay on top of spit-up, drool and whatever else might come up. Functional, durable and machine-washable, we suggest keeping a burp cloth and bib on hand.

  • IKEA

    Antilop High Chair

    This minimalist high chair is a Scandinavian favorite for a reason. Sure, the price tag helps, but it’s also sturdy, easy to take apart and take with you, and the BPA-free polypropylene and steel construction is super simple to clean.

  • Evenflo

    Classic Clear BPA-Free Plastic Baby Bottle (3-Pk)

    With micro air vents to help prevent nipple collapse, plus a twist shape that makes them easy to hold, these 8 oz. bottles are tried-and-true favorites. BPA-free and available in an array of colors, they’re also compatible with the Evenflo breast pump.

  • Mommy's Bliss

    Gas Relief Drops

    Designed to provide relief for babies suffering from gas, fussiness and stomach discomfort, these simethicone-based drops are free from gluten, dairy, soy, alcohol and parabens. As always, consult your pediatrician first.

  • Benzara

    C Shaped Polyester Upholstered Baby Nursing Pillow

    Nursing pillows provide additional support for your baby’s head—and this gender-neutral one gets the job done at a fraction of the cost of some others. It’s also machine washable with a soft cotton fill and removable polyester outer shell. Repurpose it as a tummy time or seating prop for more bang for your buck during baby’s first year.

  • The First Years

    Take and Toss Spill-Proof Sippy Cup

    Sooner or later, your baby will transition from bottle to sippy cups. When that time comes, these spill-proof cups are BPA- and Phthalate-free, come with a bonus travel cap and are dishwasher safe. Most importantly, they are affordable enough that you won’t mind when they inevitably end up where sippy cups do—the floor.
