Best New Products for New and Expecting Parents

 

By Alexa Vogue, BBP Blogger
From car seats and strollers to swim diapers and sunblock, there’s no doubt about it – having a baby has changed a lot over the last few decades!  Fortunately, many new innovations have hit the market to make it easier than ever to keep baby (and mom and dad) safe, happy and healthy.
As President of Brilliant Baby Products and Editor of our Blog, I get to see a lot of new products come across my desk but only the truly “brilliant” ones get the nod of approval.  These are just a few of my favorite “latest and greatest” baby products to make parenting in this day and age easier.
The Brica Infant Car Seat Comfort Canopy
  Why it’s “Brilliant”:
The infant car seat carrier definitely makes life easier for new parents but it doesn’t protect them from the elements and those people at the grocery store who want to reach in and squeeze their cheeks. The Brica Infant Car Seat Comfort Canopy creates a barrier to protect baby. It’s made from breathable mesh to let the fresh air in while keeping out bugs, rain, wind, and germs from overly friendly strangers.  It’s innovative design works with your car seat/stroller travel systems or lets you carry your car seat with the canopy on. The large zippered opening allows for easy access to your baby. The cover also blocks over 98% of damaging UVA/UVB rays and can be tucked away in a zippered pocket when not in use.  The Comfort Canopy is sold for $24.99 at Target, Babies R Us & Amazon or on the Brica website.
 
Peek Away 4-in-1 Nursing Essentials Kit
  Why it’s “Brilliant”:
Today’s mom is always on the run. The Peek Away 4-in-1 Nursing Essentials Kit comes with everything a nursing mom needs to feed baby while on-the-go.  It includes a nursing pillow, built in changing pad, removable wipes case and a coordinated nursing cover that ensures privacy even in public.  Best of all,  it’s all stored in a fashionable, easy-to-carry bag.   The Peek Away 4-in-1 Nursing Kit is sold for $46.98 at various retail stores in California or on the Peek Away website.
Dolphin Organics Shampoo/Body Wash, Hypoallergenic Lotion and Bubble Bath
  Why they’re “Brilliant”:
Babies are known for their soft, tender skin.  Dolphin Organics products help keep it that way.  The products are dermatologist tested and made from all natural, certified organic materials to give baby the gentle clean she needs.  The fragrance free, tear free Baby Shampoo & Body Wash uses organic aloe leaf juice to gently cleanse your baby’s hair and skin without stripping their natural oils.  The Norfolk Lavender Bubble Bath uses a natural blend of lavender oils and extracts to scent our gentle bubble bath with the relaxing aroma of lavender.  Organic calendula and oat kernel help soothe and protect your baby’s delicate skin, but the whole family can indulge their senses with our Norfolk Lavender bubble bath. The Simply Citrus Lotion is made from a complex blend of organic aloe leaf juice, organic calendula flower and certified natural and organic citrus ingredients designed to rehydrate, protect and nurture sensitive skin. The products are sold for $11.50 – $13.50 each on the Dolphin Organics website.
Preggers Maternity Leggings 
  Why it’s “Brilliant”:
Swelling, tired legs and feet are just one of the not-so-fun complications of being pregnant.   The solution is compression stockings and if you’ve ever had to buy them you’ll know that they come in two different styles:  ugly and uglier. Not anymore!  Fashion meets function with the Preggers Gradient Compression Maternity Leggings.  Mom looks AND feels great by layering Preggers leggings with their favorite maternity tunic or dress. The gradient compression delivers a controlled amount of squeeze that’s greatest at your ankle and gradually gets lighter up the leg helping to improve circulation, prevent swelling and energize tired legs and feet.  Support top expands to comfortably fit a growing belly and does not have a “Panel” making it a product you can wear before, during and after pregnancy. They’re sold for sold for $36.95 each.  Go to rupreggers.com to find a retailer near you or to buy online.
The Ultimate Thermometer
 Temp Traq Why it’s “Brilliant”:TempTraq is the first and only 24-hour intelligent thermometer that continuously senses, records, and sends alerts of a child’s temperature to your mobile device. This wearable Bluetooth thermometer that continuously monitors body temperature and provides convenient alerts to give parent’s peace of mind and their sick children the rest they need to get better. A soft comfortable patch is placed under the arm and continuously senses, records and transmits temperature information using Bluetooth technology to a compatible smart device. This allows parents to monitor their sick child from the next room via the TempTraq app on a device up to 40-feet away, every 10 seconds for 24-hours. Alerts will let a parent know when a child’s temperature is higher than desired. Parents may conveniently monitor multiple thermometers simultaneously, and also email temperature data to healthcare professionals or family members with one touch. Each is sold for $24.99. Visit temptraq.com for more information and to purchase.
