Most of us grew up with the same child-rearing products our parents did, but the kids of today are starting to have a lot more options. While the essentials like soothers and baby bottles aren’t going anywhere, the advancement of technology has resulted in a wide array of new contraptions that aim to make parents’ lives just a little bit easier.
It might be a little while until you see some of these innovative products on baby registries, but there’s no denying that they will be game changers for most parents. From strollers that fit in your purse to tech-savvy cribs, these contraptions change the way parents monitor, play with, and nurture their little one. Here are 25 genius inventions for kids that truly modernize the art of parenting.
1. It’s not easy for new parents to have their baby so far away from them while sleeping, but the risks associated with sharing the bed outweigh that yearning. However, the Culla Belly Co-Sleeper from Bimbi Si offers a safe alternative. This portable baby crib attaches to your bed so that you can be in close proximity while still having your child safely separated during the night.
2. All parents know that most meals tend to end up on the floor rather than in their kid’s stomach. However, this Gyro Bowl makes dishware more kid-proof and spill-proof than ever before. The inner bowl rotates 360 degrees so the opening is always facing up — even in the grips of destructive toddler hands.
