Women have been having babies for thousands of years, and while the basics of caring for a newborn have remained much the same, the technology around us has evolved dramatically. Thanks to so many advances, we have some amazing products to care for our babies in revolutionary ways. If you love babies and you love gadgets, this post is for you. Check out some of the most tech savvy toys of the future!

There is nothing worse than stumbling in a dark kitchen, trying to heat up a bottle with a screaming baby in the middle of the night. This combo bottle warmer and cooler is a godsend! You can store two bottles in the cooler portion, which will be kept cool for up to 8 hours. Then pour water in the warmer section, which holds enough for 2 warms, and your bottle will be warmed in minutes. This works great for formula, breastmilk and even baby food jars! Oh, and it’s also portable!
2. Pipila Pacificer Sanitizer
If your baby takes a pacifier, you know how often they get tossed, dropped and spit out on the floor, and often in parking lots or dirty restaurant floors. This amazing portable pacifier sanitizer uses UV lights to safely eliminate 99.9% of germs! It takes just three minutes and your pacis are neat and clean!
3. Munchkin Lulla-Vibe Vibrating Mattress Pad
Do you have a baby that loves to be held, rocked and swung all the time? This mattress pad may be the path to some hands free time for you! Stick this neoprene covered device under your infant’s mattress and pick from 2 vibration settings, to create soft vibrations that will soothe your fussy baby. It even begins to taper off and stop completely after time, so your sweet baby can catch some sweet dreams.
4. mybaby HoMedics SoundSpa On-The-Go
Not all babies sleep comfortably while they are out and about. They can get easily distracted and exhausted. This inexpensive sound machine will help provide the background noise your baby needs to get some rest. You can choose from 4 sounds that will auto-turn off when finished playing. It’s lightweight, battery operated, and just a great gadget to keep around.
5. Baby Brezza Formula Pro One Step Food Maker
If you’re a formula feeder, you know how quickly making bottles gets old. It’s very important to use the right amount of both formula and water to make sure your baby is getting the right nutrients and to maintain safe conditions. This machine takes care of all the variables: water temp, appropriate mixing of water with no air bubbles, and has room to make up to 20 eight ounce bottles. So amazing and so worth the price.
6. Pacifier Thermometer
Taking your baby’s temperature can be super frustrating because they never hold still, are feeling just awful, and as a parent you never want to even think about using a rectal thermometer. This simple concept combines a pacifier and a thermometer in one. Just have your baby hold in their mouth until you get a good reading and hopefully some peace of mind.
7. B Kids Watch Over Me Dream Station
Gone are the simple mobiles of yore, because this dream station has it all. It comes with 18 melodies and a wonderful assortment of lights. It has a universal crib mount and sensors that will start displaying soothing lights if your baby wakes in the middle of the night to help them get back to sleeping.
8. ZoLi Nail Trimmer
If the thought of using nail clippers and potentially cutting your baby makes you squeamish, then check out this nail trimmer. Newborn nails are often paper thin but still very sharp, and cutting them doesn’t work because they bend when you pinch between nail clippers. This product is actually more of a battery-powered buffer and comes with 4 different pads of varying coarseness. It will get the job done and give you peace of mind.
