A - Z Of The Best Pregnancy & Baby Gadgets
There are so many choices out there when it comes to items we “need” for pregnancy and baby, it makes it very hard to know what the best options are so I have compiled a list of some of the more interesting gadgets I have come across. Check out my A-Z guide of the best on the market…
A. Angelcare Baby Monitor
The higher end monitor that not only allows parents to listen to their baby, but also detects movement. Parents are alerted when there has been a lack of movement for 20 seconds. It works out quite affordable for the level of peace of mind it can provide for new parents.
A revolutionary system that was developed with baby’s comfort in mind and designed to help those with reflux and colic issues but no doubt something any baby would find great comfort in.
A very comfortable cot insert (can also be used alone) which mimics the comfort of the womb and holds baby in a semi-foetal position.
D. Digisense Nappy Sensor
A sensor which attaches to the nappy to provide parents with information about baby’s hydration levels and other vital information.
E. Ewan The Dream Sheep
Super cute and cuddly, Ewan plays soothing sounds including the familiar sounds of the womb providing great comfort for your little one. He also has a gentle light feature.
F. Fetal Doppler
For those among us that question everything during pregnancy, a fetal Doppler allows you to hear your baby’s heartbeat from the comfort of your own home, giving you peace of mind. (Obviously major concerns should still be discussed with a doctor and the Doppler is not intended to replace professional medical care).
This little device gives you an accurate temperature reading and has a lovely gentle glow and an adorable design.
H. Hatchbaby Changing Pad
This genius little invention connects to your smart phone and can provide you with information about your little one’s nappies and even whether they are gaining weight!
I. Isofix Base
The handiest way to keep your baby safe in the car. Simple to install and very user friendly.
My kids loved this one. They get hours of enjoyment while fully supported.
K. Kiband Child Tracker
There is a waiting list for this one as it is not available to purchase just yet. A simple band that connects to your smartphone and allows you to keep track of your child using GPS.
L. Lil’ Helper Baby Bottle Holder
This handy little object fits perfectly into little hands helping them learn to hold their own bottle.
Ok, this is on the pricey side. It is however a sleekly designed seat which smoothly and gently rocks baby side to side and has a mobile element overhead to entertain your little person endlessly.
N. Next 2 Me Crib
I am currently using one of these for my little girl and I must say it is by far one of our best purchases. It allows us to be close to her with easy access without the risks involved in co-sleeping. It is particularly good for breastfeeding mammy’s as it makes transfer before and after feeds seamless.
O. Origami Self Folding Buggy
This is definitely one for the gadget lovers among you! Very pricey at $849.99 but the latest in baby-related technology.
P. Prince Lionheart Evo Wipe Warmer
Yes, I know what you are thinking, it is unnecessary but at £31.86, it is not overly expensive and sometimes we parents need to do whatever it takes to make our job easier!
Q. Quinny Buzz Jogger
If you are a runner, this is definitely the buggy for you. Made to take the speed of running as well as different terrains, it is a must for any mom/dad that wants to spend time with baby without sacrificing their exercise routine.
R. Remi Sleep Trainer
Track your child’s sleeping patterns and how they change during different development stages. It allows you to customise sleep and waking times teaching your child when they should shut down for the night and when it is time to get up. An invaluable way to make sure everyone in the house gets a full night’s sleep!
S. Shnuggle Bath
A comfortable and sleek design, this bath allows your child to be in a more upright position while they are getting washed. The soft area supports their back without feeling hard so baby is happier and more comfortable making bath time a pleasurable experience for both of you!
T. Tommee Tippee Bottle Prep
Takes the guess work out of bottle preparation. It makes the perfect bottle at the perfect temperature every time. The hot shot of water it injects into the bottle also kills bacteria making it extra hygienic. Cost: €129.99
U. Uvicube Sanitiser
This device uses uv light to sanitise bottles and other items. As a bonus, you can even use it to sanitise items like mobile phones and remote controls! Because there is no moisture, you don’t risk any damage.
V. Vicks Starry Night Humidifier
An effective humidifier with an adorable light feature that projects a starry night scene onto the ceiling so your baby can breathe and sleep soundly.

An innovative new product which allows mothers to move around, walk, work etc. while you pump. It couldn’t be simpler and allows mothers to pump while going about their day. Pop over to willowpump.com for a look.
X. Xylophone Toy
The best of everything a baby/toddler likes... plenty of colour and noise and a bargain price too!
