You’ve taken your fair share of pregnancy tests to confirm, you’ve decorated your refrigerator with ultrasound photos of your little one, and you’ve begun the exciting journey of sharing the news with your loved ones. Next up: creating your dream registry!
A checklist is always a helpful place to start, along with consulting your more experienced mom friends. But what about all the new products just hitting the shelves and filling your social media feed? We’re here to help. We’ve carefully curated a list of the best newly-released baby products to help you feel confident about embarking on your newest adventure: parenthood!
For The Mama:
Frida Pregnancy Care Line (Release date, September 2022)
Let’s start with you, Mama! It is no secret that the Frida brand is a staple for your motherhood journey. Moms initially fell in love with the NoseFrida, and over the years, the Frida brand has become a one-stop shop for all things baby, pregnancy, and postpartum.Frida’s latest launch, their Pregnancy Skincare Line;, was released in September 2022. This line is designed to pamper moms from head to toe, offering body and belly essentials for pregnancy through postpartum.
There’s no better time to care for yourself than when your body is working overtime to grow your little one. This set includes a No-Friction stick, Stretch Prep Balm, Bump and Body In-Shower Lotion, and Leg and Foot Swell Spray. Sounds like the ultimate spa day if you ask me!
Medela Freestyle Hands-Free Breast Pump: (Release date, November 2022)
I would like to begin with a little disclaimer before we dive into this next product – as someone whose breastfeeding journey was anything but glamorous, I firmly believe in the phrase “fed is best.”
Pumping and breastfeeding might be part of your motherhood journey for a few weeks, months, years, or not at all–and that is perfectly fine!
For years, moms who wanted to pump had to stay close to an outlet or have somewhere to place a bulky breast pump. I’m happy to say that freedom has arrived in the form of hands-free electric breast pumps! Long known for their breastfeeding products and pumps, Medela released their hands-free electric breast pump version in November 2022. While this item is on the pricier side, do not let the price tag deter you from clicking “add to registry.” Consider adding a contribution option so multiple guests can contribute toward the value of this gift!
For The Baby:
Halo SleepSure Sleep Monitor (Release date, January 2023)
Whether this is your first or fourth baby, why do parents’ nerves start to spike once they are asleep? Enter the Halo SleepSure Smart Baby Monitor. With heart rate, skin temperature, and movement and rollover monitoring, this device will give you extra comfort during those beginning months.
For The Nursery:
Hatch Generation 2 (Release Date July 2022)
When creating my baby registry, I was beyond excited to add the Hatch sound machine! I had heard countless positive reviews about this device, and let me add to the hype by saying, “It’s totally worth it!” The Hatch Generation 2 was released in 2022 and includes a digital clock and a greater sound library should you decide to upgrade to the premium subscription option.Newton Baby Bassinet (Release Date, June 2023)
I am sure you have all heard of the beloved Newton crib mattress, known for its breathable Wovenaire core and designed with your baby’s health and safety in mind. We were so excited to see that in 2023, Newton released their bassinet and bedside sleeper!Just like Newton’s crib mattress, this 100% breathable and washable bedside sleeper utilizes the well-loved Wovenaire technology, making it the perfect addition to your child’s bedtime and nap routine.
For On The Go:
Evenflo Revolve 360: (Release Date, 2021)
Rotating car seats are all the rage nowadays! Oh, how I wish I had known about these when creating my registry. While this product was released in 2021, I felt it was necessary to include it because of its practicality and state-of-the-art technology (and because I don’t want any mamas to make this same mistake I did!)
With my due date quickly approaching, I was so excited to install our car seat in our family vehicle with the help of my husband. These final touches made the anticipation of life with our son so much more exciting!
Not long after our son was born, I met up for a playdate with my cousin and took note of her rotating car seat! My mind was instantly blown! Note to self: I’ll be sure to add a rotating car seat to my registry for our next child.
Whether you have the newest and best baby products or were blessed with hand-me-downs from a beloved mom friend, what matters most is the love and care you give your child! The memories you make in all seasons of parenting are something that money cannot buy. Before you know it, the rotating car seat will turn into a booster seat, and a cell phone alarm will replace the Hatch alarm. So enjoy these moments while they’re here, Mama!
