Game Changing Baby Gadgets For New Parents


By: Julius McGee Special to the Boca and Delray newspapers
Parenting is not easy, especially when you are dealing with a brand-new baby for the fist or 50th time. Every parent wants to react to every whim and fancy of his or her baby as quickly as possible, but boy does that get exhausting. Luckily, technology can make life a little bit easier by offering new parents peace of mind, and touch of convenience. So let’s get to these new baby gadgets.
VTech Safe & Sound Video Baby Monitor
We Nerds believe that every parent with a small baby needs a monitor, so why not opt for an cool techy monitor? This handy unit allows you to check the nursery’s temperature, talk to your baby, and you can even zoom in to get a good look at your baby (day or night, thanks to the night viewing capabilities). Even better, if you have other children you can expand the system! It will accommodate four additional cameras, so you can keep your eyes on all of them using the split screen on the handheld unit. Gives those eyes in the back of your head a rest and turn on the eyes in the palm of your hand.
Itzbeen Pocket Nanny
Everyone knows that new parents are sleep deprived. Those little humans can be demanding and a lack of sleep leads to forgetfulness. Unfortunately, babies need routine… luckily, the Pocket Nanny can keep track of all of those details so that your brain doesn’t have to. You can set reminders of the Pocket Nanny to let you know when the baby last ate, when they napped, or had a diaper change. It’s also a great tool for tracking medications. It has a built-in night-light, and a clip on the back so that you can literally keep it in your pocket. What could be better than a pocket nanny? Aside from an actual nanny, of course.
Baby Shusher
No one enjoys listening to the sounds of a crying baby. Parents run through a million tips and tricks trying to console their little one, but they’re missing one big one…the Baby Shusher. The Baby Shusher might sound like a strange device, but it literally shushes your baby. It’s a noise machine that mimics the sounds of the womb, which triggers the baby’s natural calming reflex… which means, your baby stops crying! Remember, your baby spent nine months in your womb experiencing all of the noises and sounds of the womb- the Baby Shusher is the ideal tool to recreate that. The Talkative Co-worker & Neighbour Susher is coming soon.
Pacifier Thermometer
No one wants to rely on the old-fashioned method of taking a baby’s temperature. Thankfully, the Pacifier Thermometer is coming to the rescue! There’s no need to undress and un-diaper your unwell baby, or deal with a wriggling, leg kicking, karate chopping baby- all you have to do is pop it in baby’s mouth and check baby’s temperature. Any device that can limit the disruption to your sleep is a total must. Even better, if your baby is unwell and you want to check on them in the night, there’s no need to wake them or disturb them to get a quick temp check.
These are only a small number of devices out of the many that will help new parents thrive in this Nerdy world. If you or someone you know just had a recent visit from the stork and is looking for some cool baby tech, help make the world nerdy again by putting it to good use.
