There are a lot of things that parents have to buy before a baby is born: crib, changing table, stroller, infant car seat, skin care products, clothes, toys and more. These baby products are necessary and helpful too. However, there are few other essential things that can be very useful, but new parents usually don’t think about them.

These unobvious gadgets may seem unnecessary but in reality they can be a lifesavers for new parents, struggling with new responsibilities.

Here’s a list of gadgets that will help parents when they have a newborn in the family.

Kettle with temperature control

This product may be really useful for preparing baby formula. With this there wouldn’t be a need to check the water temperature; you will be able to set the correct temperature on the control panel. Usually they have six different temperature settings. There are also kettles with built-in thermometers so that you can heat the water to any temperature you want.

Portable changing pad

This can be a lifesaver not only for those parents who travel a lot, but also for those who are often out and about with their baby. Portable changing pad is made of waterproof fabric and has few storage pockets where we can put few diapers, diaper rash cream, and a bag for used diapers. The whole pad can be rolled up into a small package – which is light and compact.

Diaper can

Though many parents feel that this is an unnecessary expensethis can be very useful when parents have to change a diaper frequently. If you throw used diapers in the trash can with other rubbish, the basket will quickly become full and you will need to clear out the garbage often. Having a separate can for diapers is not just convenient but hygienic too.

Baby swing

Babies love cuddling, rocking ,and swinging. It’s a great way to comfort and soothe them. Rocking baby in arms can be pretty tiring for parents, that’s why electric baby swings are ideal. Parents can use baby swing to their child to sleep, to soothe if they are colic and fussy or comfort them if they have teething issues

Bath tub with stand

Many new parents put the bath tub on the floor and while bathing the baby they have to bend and lift a lot. It’s completely unnecessary. Bath tub stand is a very helpful gadget. With this parents can bathe their baby in a comfortable position. This is very useful, especially for moms who had C-section and can’t bend and lift right after the childbirth. —
