Budget-Minded Mama

Just like our own medicine cabinets are stocked with everything from first aid to stomach remedies, little ones require their own set of items to ensure baby’s health. And babyproofing—though it won’t come for quite after a while after creating your registry—is a serious project in itself. We’ve compiled some wallet-friendly items to tack onto your registry for mamas concerned with health and safety (so basically, all of us).

  • Fridababy

    3-in-1 True Temp Digital Thermometer

    An LED backlight and 10-second temperature reading make nighttime temp-taking a breeze. This Frida Baby thermometer also has a 30-second double-check feature that doesn’t require reinserting, and it can be used three ways—orally, rectally or under baby’s arm.

  • Puj

    Soft Foldable Infant Bath Tub

    The Puj soft infant bath insert is one of our all-time favorite ways to simplify bathtime. The BPS- and PVC-free material resists mold and mildew while providing a flexible, soft place for your little one to relax during a sink bath. And when bathtime is over? Simply hang it up to dry in the shower before folding it and tucking it away in a closet or under the sink.

  • Wyze

    HD Indoor/Outdoor Video Camera

    You don’t have to spend a small fortune to ensure baby’s safety. This monitor touts color night vision, two-way audio, high-definition video capture, motion and sound detection, and compatibility with digital assistants like Alexa and Google Home. And at around $30, you really can’t go wrong.

  • Jool Baby

    Baby Corner Guards

    Mobile babies cover a lot of ground, so when building your registry, don’t forget to account for items you’ll need in your home as your child grows, like corner guards. These peel-and-stick little lifesavers will help minimize any sharp corners and furniture edges that could harm your baby.

  • Regalo

    Easy Open Super Wide Walk Thru Baby Gate

    Keeping your child contained once mobile is as easy as finding sturdy, reliable gates and installing them wherever needed. This pressure-mounted (read: wall-friendly) one by Regalo is 47 inches wide to fit even large door openings—it’s also adjustable and has an all-steel construction. Sorry, curious kiddos: A gated home is a safe home.

  • Crane

    Droplet Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier

    This tinier sister product to Crane’s popular Drop humidifier is perfect for baby’s room or any small space. For keeping the air moist during the winter months or just providing relief during a cold or flu, this product creates 15 hours of soothing moisture and cool mist.
