New year means ‘NEW’ everything! be it tech or trend. But why should adults have all the fun?
Here’s a list of the hottest must-have baby products lined up in 2016.
Make your baby the coolest-tot on the block!
The ABC Kids expo, the largest baby gear expo, just wrapped up in Las Vegas, introducing us to the trendiest baby-products to look out for in 2016. Lets have a look at the most intriguing ones at first.
Let’s take a look at the daily-use products for your 0 to 3 year old, first.
1. The Austlen Etourage
P.C : babycenter.com
This is a clever stroller. Yes, we know parents – how difficult it is to pack up everything while planing an outing with your baby. Worry not! Super-stroller is on the market. This stroller can hold 100 pounds of stuff along with 5o pounds of kid in the combo. Or lets just say that this can hold two infant seats, two big-kid seats, a standing platform and lotsa other gear. Parent’s heaven, isn’t it? No worrying about those multiple shopping bags and the extra baby-gear.

2. OutSmart Collection
P.C : babycenter.com
Safety 1st brings you the OutSmart collection. It’s hard keeping those cookie drawers closed, what with you kids being born Einstein and stuff. Safety 1st has the perfectest and might I say the most hilarious solution to your problem- big lock with a big button (which does nothing and is a decoy). The result is that your kid will press the button and nothing will happen. The actual lock is in the back and has to be pressed with both the hands. These safety lock’s are the mark of a genius. BTW, the coffee cup has nothing to do with the collection, it just goes to show that our source was hard at work and needed caffeine. The market price has yet to be released.
3. Embe 2-Way Swaddle
P.C : babycenter.com
Swaddling is an art. Too tight and your babe won’t stop crying. Too loose and your babe won’t stop crying. That leaves us with finding the perfect kind of swaddle. Voila! embebabies has brought us the kind of swaddle that leaves the legs free. New indeed, the market has swaddles that leaves only the hands free. This on the other hand leaves those kicking legs free while keeping the hands wrapped up. This is meant for babies for 0-6 months.

4. DockaTot Bassinet
P.C : babycenter.com
Yup, this strange looking thing is a baby-lounge or bassinet if you will. Sleek and easy to drag around the house, it lets the baby sleep in its comfy embrace. it takes up no room and comes in two sizes- Deluxe(0-6 months) and Grand(9 -36 months) . Another perk is that it comes in a variety of pretty fabrics.

P.C : babycenter.com
Bathing your baby without him slipping or hitting his head is a big task. Bathing your baby outside the bathroom is messy but most parents don’t venture into the bathroom for fear of the baby hurting himself. Fear no more, here is CharlieChair. It holds your baby securely while he is sitting and you can easily take him to the shower and wash your bundle-of-joy while using both your hands. No, worries about holding your baby up.

6. Phoenix Baby GoTo
P.C : babycenter.com
The GoTo is a high-chair and doubles up as a car seat. It’s as new as it gets. Its portable which is another plus point. You can take it anywhere- picnics, when you go to a friends house for a visit or to a day out in the zoo. It accommodates a kid up to 3 years and can be folded up easily.

7. Hugaboo Nursing-pillow
P.C : babycenter.com
Most of the times nursing pillows slowly slide off, making it important to keep on adjusting them. So, hugaboo presents us these plushy nursing pillows that have cushy leg-holes which prevents them from sliding off. They are really comfy and let both you and your baby relax during the intimate moments of breastfeeding.

8. Peg Perego Duette
P.C : babycenter.com
Peg Perego is an Italian brand which has introduced the Duette. Though not an entirely original idea, it is still interesting. This stroller allows your twins (or siblings of different ages) to face each-other or sit side by side. Nothing better than the feeling of looking at your sibling eye-to-eye (or not eye-to eye). Either way, its entertaining! You can even look up The Contours option as well.
Find it at : Target
9. Pop n’ sit
P.C : babycenter.com
Summer Infant Pop n’ Playard has been our longtime favourite. It now has younger siblings ie . a pop out booster chair and a pop out high chair. The chairs are portable and here are hopes that they would be easy on your wallet. Its easy to carry and is easy to put up. Prices yet to be declared.
10. Mysize Potty
P.C : babycenter.com
Looks like any regular adult-size toilet, but it is only half the size. In short it is made for your baby in baby size. The good thing? since it looks the same as an adult-size thing, it will make it easier for your child to get toilet trained. The flush also makes a convincing noise!!!!

11. Moon Cocoon
Nini and Pumpkin have come up with this wonderful Moom Cocoon which is a sleep sack that grows with your tot. It zippers and is is made up of the softest material ever. When your tot outgrows it, the top portion zips off and it becomes a toddler size blanket. Isn’t it cool???

15. Newton Mattress
Winner of the JPMA award in the nursery category, this breathable mattress is a must have for your kid. The idea is that your kid can breathe through the mattress(even if he is lying facedown on it). That is if he is lying directly on the mattress. The more covers you put on it, the less breathable it becomes. The cover slips off and is washable. Interesting thing no? Would be far useful if it came in adult size versions, for those drunken new-year nights!!!

16. Tot 2 Walk
P.C : pregnantchicken
This is a walking aid that helps your child by going along with his natural grasping reflexes. They control their own balance, stability and speed so they ‘get it’ at their own pace. It’s actually a brilliant idea and we wonder why there are no other such walking-aids, others are all about supporting the kid back not going with them.
Find it at: tot2walk
17. Doodle Pop
Michelle and Nicki have come up with Doodle pop- a one piece soft silicone pacifier that pops back into itself when it’s released. This means that it stays clean and mostly germ free, which in turn means that you dont have to worry about washing the thing every-time it drops down or something. It also reduces the risk of nipple confusion. They will be around 10$ each and have good chances of being available by spring.

18. Summer Infant Kiddopotamus Jumpin’ Jive Jungle
Summer Infant is on a roll this year…woohoo! It’s coming up with a portable play-centre to leave your baby at when you require a few winks or a few shots of vodka. It is safe and it keeps your kid entertained and hence from crying. It should be coming out by May or June in 2016.

These pillows are a breast-feeder’s paradise. Pariday knows just how painful breastfeeding can be with sore breast, cracked nipples and what not.

They can even be used for headache (placed over eyes or on forehead), and as a cold-pack for an injury!!!! versatile!!!

Trust us parents, we know all about night-terrors! The result is kids creeping up in your beds resulting in you being in sleep-deprived-zombie-mode the next day. It is basically a vibrating pillow which slips under your kid’s mattress and syncs with an app on your phone. It asks you a few questions and figures out the child’s sleep pattern according to it , lulling him to sleep as required. The company was founded by a Father/Physician and an Engineer from Stanford University who spent years researching children’s sleep, so the research around it is reliable enough.

The baby-scientists have come up with Hatch, this small changing pad which enables the parents to track the baby’s growth, feedings, diapers, and sleep on their smartphones. It is operator friendly and I’d say a whole lot of convenient in our lifestyle now where we are solely dependent on gadgets and internet. It will be available by December, 2016.

This is a dream come true for all the mom’s of twins. You can carry both the kids together or you can split it so that each mom and dad have one to carry. It’s such a boon that I am wondering if the idea came from the parents of twins themselves. Makes lots of work easier.
