Top 5 Baby Accessories

Top 5 Baby Accessories

New parents need baby clothes, baby food, baby accessories… and a lot of time and patience. There are a lot of accessories out there that can make a new mom or dad’s life easier by helping out with a task, providing physical relief or making baby safer. Here are our top 5 choices for baby accessories to have around the house.

Baby tub

Baths are too big for newborn babies; there’s always a risk of drowning of you’re not 100% attentive. And then, there’s always the kitchen sink, but who wants to disinfect their kitchen sink several times a day to make sure that baby doesn’t get sick? A baby tub is the perfect choice. Fill it with water at a good temperature, bathe baby and clean the tub after. No food germs. And most models can be made bigger as baby grows up.

Choose a tub made of soft plastic with cushioning. Plastic is easy to clean and disinfect and cushioning will make bath time more comfortable for baby. It’s like a baby spa!

Swing chair

A swing chair or bouncy chair will give you a little break from holding baby all day long. Sometimes you just want to sit down with a good book while your baby is occupied with toys and activities, and a swing chair will keep your baby safe. Choose one with both stimulating and relaxing activities—soft music will put them to sleep and mirrors and lights will attract their attention.

Of course, safety is always the priority so choose a good quality swing chair that has received high security ratings. Reviews abound on the Web, so it won’t be hard to find one.

Diaper bag

This one is a no-brainer. It’s not like you spend your days inside—you’ll have to go out and bring your baby into the world, eventually. So get yourself a nice, fashionable, durable diaper bag. Even celebrity moms carry them around! There are so many models and styles to choose from, you’ll be sure to find one that suits your tastes and your needs.

Nursing bra and top

Nursing moms swear by these… they make life so much easier. You can nurse in public without having to take your whole top off and you minimize the amount of spills and stains. Nursing tops especially come in stain-resistant fabrics that are easy to clean.

More and more public places are “nursing friendly”, so don’t be afraid to show how much you care about baby by nursing him or her naturally.


Well, most of us have cameras these days, but still, it’s good to remember to always have one on hand to capture those special moments with baby. Memories are great, but there’s nothing more special than sharing them with your kid when he or she is grown up.

So these are our five favourite baby accessories to have around the house. What are your favourite baby gifts? Anything we’ve missed that has saved your life?
