The year is 2020 (said in a Barbara Walters voice) and there are some really cool new pregnancy and baby products coming out. I checked out the Kind + Jugend show in Germany in September 2019 so I got to see all the global goodies that are sure to be a hit. Some are available now and some are still in development, but I will keep updating the list.
Here’s what’s cool and new in pregnancy & baby products for 2020!
Milestone is the original creator of the Baby Milestone cards and it doesn’t surprise me that Gemma is upping her game, but the Boutique Collection is truly beautiful. It comes in a green linen box with gold foil letter (it has no barcode or any store markings so it’s a true keepsake) and contains 40 photo cards – familiar and new – to capture special moments of baby’s first year. Each card has beautiful watercolor print and prompts on the back. They should be out shortly and you’ll be able to find them on the Milestone site.
If you’ve been coveting the Snoo but not the steep price tag, the new 4moms mamaRoo Sleep Bassinet might be a dream come true. This new, smart sleep solution integrates the same proven motions of the 4moms mamaRoo infant seat and features five unique motions (car ride, wave, kangaroo, tree swing, and rock-a-bye), vibration, and five speed options. The mamaRoo sleep bassinet also adheres to the American Association of Pediatrics (AAP)’s safe sleep guidelines by providing a firm, flat sleeping surface and tight fitted sheet. This, combined with its reasonable retail price of around $330, earns it a best new baby product of 2020 badge. It will be available in early 2020, and more info can be found on the BuyBuyBaby website.
Two dads came up with a simple solution for a frustrating problem – the need for two hands to screw and unscrew bottle/cup lids. The bökee is the first and only bottle feeding accessory that lets you make a bottle with just one hand – it also works for pump components and sippy cups. Brilliant, right?
Snap up an original though because I know other companies are going to try to rip them off and the authentic version is always the better product. You can find all three colors on the bökee site and they are available now for $20. If you use the code PREGNANTCHICKEN10 you’ll get 10% off too.
These ball pits caught my eye because they were truly beautiful – like a big soft pit of pearls or marbles. They are made in Denmark from plant-based foam and the balls are made with LDPE plastic and are CE approved. You can customize everything from the shape and fabric on the pit, to the color of the balls – I think they have 31 colors. (On a related note, I looked high and low for something like this to hold my son’s LEGO and couldn’t find anything. Clearly, I needed to search in Denmark.) They start at $150 so they aren’t cheap but it’s made well and doesn’t look like a pink-eye pit you’d find at a carnival, which is why we’re slapping a best baby product of 2020 badge on ’em. You can shop them on the Kidkii site.
