Being a new parent is, without a doubt, difficult. Not only do you have to keep an eye on your baby for the entire day, but you also have to take care of other things, including yourself. It’s a mix of magic and disaster at the same time. However, you can reduce the latter description by just getting the right tools ready. Here are five of them that we think is a must-have for every new mom and dad out there.
One of the essential tech products every new parent must have is a thermometer. Knowing your baby’s temperature is crucial. A slight fever can instantly mean an infection. And without a thermometer at home, you will be in a fifty-fifty situation in deciding whether or not your baby should be taken to a doctor. Be at ease by reading your child’s temperature accurately with the ANKOVO Thermometer. It’s a non-invasive thermometer, so you can check his temperature without the need to disturb him/her. You only need to point this digital thermometer on your baby’s forehead (two inches away), and it should give you an accurate reading. It also saves the last 20 readings so you can track every little change in his/her temperature. Furthermore, it is super easy to use and can, obviously, also be used for adults. So not only are you taking care of your baby’s health but for the entire family as well.
Next tech product that we recommend for every new parent out there is a baby monitor, and we only recommend the best one, the Cocoon Cam Plus. Not only will you see your baby through your phone, but it also monitors your baby’s breathing, so you know if he/she is having trouble sleeping. It’s easy to install and provides night vision in HD video. With this tool, you can work on other things throughout the day with confidence. Moreover, you don’t always need to watch the live stream. Whenever your baby cries, it will instantly send a notification on your phone, and you’ll be aware right away.
Human milk is always the best and most recommended food for your baby. Although it has a lot of pros, it also has quite a number of cons. And one of them is that you can’t feed your child when you leave the house. Good thing there are breast pumps available and even better is that there are automatic ones, too. And the best pump on the market when it comes to that (price, function, and quality) is the Bellababy breast pump. It’s an electronic pump that allows you to do other things while it does its job. It stores milk either in a typical bottle or a plastic one, which can be frozen for later use. It’s also portable so you can bring it to work and help you out when you have excess milk.
Next on our list that we find super important and often ignored by a lot of new parents is a room thermometer. Did you know that your baby’s room should have a stable 65-to-70-degree Fahrenheit temperature? If it’s too hot, your child is prone to sweat and might cause some pulmonary health problems. And if it’s too cold, he/she might catch a cold or will frequently wake up at night. The best way to track your room’s temperature without a lot of fuss is the Gro-Egg Room Thermometer. It can accurately measure how hot or cold the room is and shows you not only through a digital screen but also by emitting colored lights. Each light represents a certain temperature, so it’s fast and easy to know when things get a bit too cold or hot.
Last on our list is, although straightforward and simple, is the Pocket Nanny. It’s an alarm for everything when it comes to taking care of your baby. Again, taking care of a baby requires a lot of focus and attention. You need to change his/her diaper every now and then, feed every now and then, and put to sleep every now and then. In a nutshell, a baby is a challenge with incredible rewards. That’s why this product exists so you can program the to-dos easily. It will remind you whenever it’s feeding time, sleeping time, or changing diaper time.
As you know, or are about to find out, being a new parent is difficult. For most parents, it means a total change in their daily routines. While no single gadget or combination of products will make your life a breeze, they certainly can help make it a lot easier. Congratulations on one of the greatest joys in life and good luck!
