There are lots of Baby Kits & Health Care sets out there to get for your newborn baby. In this article, we will look at the best baby kits for you as you embark on your maternal journey. Stay connected.
What You Should Know About Baby Care
Child care, often known as daycare, is the monitoring and care of a child or a group of children ranging in age from two weeks to eighteen years.
Child care is a vast topic that encompasses a diverse range of experts, organizations, locations, activities, and social and cultural norms.
Early childhood care is a crucial but frequently disregarded aspect of a child’s development.
Care provided by children of similar ages has a wide range of developmental and psychological effects on both caregivers and those in charge.
This is because their brain growth is not progressing as it should be at their age. The child’s extended relatives may also play a role in his or her care.
Top 55 Best Baby Kits for Newborn
Do you ever feel like having the inside scoop on the baby gear that more experienced parents used and can’t live without is the key to deciphering the code of new parenthood?
Finding the goods can make life with your new baby much easier. Parents who have been there and done that are typically the finest resources for determining which goods to put in your cart and which to leave out.
The top Baby Kits & Health Care Sets to gain for your newborn are listed below.
1. Hatch Rest Sound Machine, Night Light & Time-to-Rise
This streamlined sleep solution is a perennial favorite among parents, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a nightlight, sound machine, and okay-to-wake clock all rolled into one package.
You can choose from pre-programmed light and sound settings or customize your own all controllable right from your phone. It also works as a toddler alarm clock as your baby grows.
2. Guava Family Lotus Travel Crib & Play Yard
We’re surprised it took this long for this much-loved travel crib to earn a spot on our Best of the list. The Guava Lotus is a favorite for families on the go.
It’s super lightweight at only 13 pounds, easily portable (it all folds up into a backpack), sturdy, and has a comfortable mattress.
The crawl-through zipper door gives you easy access to your little one (but also locks off so they can’t escape!) and the mesh sides allow for great airflow and total breathability.
3. FridaBaby Nosefrida The Snotsucker Bundle
Is the idea behind the NoseFrida sort of gross? Yes. Do parents love it anyway? Also yes.
Way better than a traditional nasal bulb, the Snotsucker helps you clear tiny nostrils and makes your baby way more comfortable when they’re feeling under the weather.
There are disposable hygienic filters so mucus and germs can’t transfer to you (phew) and the Snotsucker is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.
4. Fisher-Price Baby’s Bouncer
You can spend hundreds of dollars on a bouncer, or you can spend about $30 and get this parent-favorite that’s just as great.
Fisher-Price’s Baby’s Bouncer has been around for years (but has recently been updated with a new design, yay!) and is a comfy, safe, and affordable spot for your baby to chill.
It gently bounces along with your little one’s natural motions and is light and easy to move around wherever you need it.
5. Baby Shusher Soother
This ingenious baby product is often dubbed as something you never knew you needed, but couldn’t live without. It makes rhythmic shushing noises to soothe your baby—and save your voice.
It’s portable, affordable, and perfect to use in the car seat, stroller, at home, or whenever you need to calm down your fussy baby.
6. Halo Sleepsack Swaddle (Cotton)
You’ll want to skip loose blankets in your baby’s crib, especially during the first year, and that’s where this swaddle comes in.
It uses Velcro wings to keep your newborn’s arms close and recreate the snug, secure feeling they experienced in the womb.
It then transitions into an arms-out sleep sack once they’re older. We love the soft cotton that’s ideal for any temperature and the budget-friendly price so you can stock up.
7. Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Original Newborn Bottle Gift Set
Dr. Brown’s bottles are a longtime favorite for families, and we couldn’t agree more about just how great they are.
Although they contain a lot of small parts, making them a bit time-consuming to clean, the unique venting systems help eliminate air bubbles during feeds and prevent colic, spit-up, and general fussiness.
This starter set comes with five bottles of two sizes and two nipple types.
8. UPPAbaby VISTA V2 Stroller
The UPPAbaby Vista is a top choice for families looking for a convertible stroller. There’s so much to love here: beautiful design, durability, a full recline, an XL storage basket, great maneuverability, a cushy suspension system, and more.
The V2 comes with a bassinet for newborn days and can accommodate up to three children with the addition of a second seat and a ride-along board, making it an ideal choice for a growing family.
9. Graco Pack ‘n Play On The Go Playard
Durable, easy to set up, and under $100: what’s not to love? Graco’s On the Go Playard is perfect for both traveling with your little one or creating a safe spot to put baby when you’re busy doing other things or just need a break.
The push-button fold mechanism on this Playard makes setup (and takedown) quick and simple.
10. Chicco KeyFit 35 Infant Car Seat
There are so many car seats on the market, but Babylist parents come back to the Chicco KeyFit again and again for both safety and ease of installation.
The new KeyFit 35 edition has all the same standout features as the KeyFit 30 (easy to install with or without the base, tons of safety features, compatible with many popular strollers, and more) with one addition.
It now accommodates babies up to 35 pounds and 32 inches. This allows you to keep your little one in a safer rear-facing position for longer.
11. Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Essentia Series
A bassinet is an ideal way to keep your baby close during sleep while also keeping them safe in their own sleep space.
Halo’s Bassinest takes things one step further with this base that tucks under your bed and a 360-degree swivel so you can position the bassinet right over your mattress.
The sheer mesh sides help you keep an eye on your baby (and are also great for breathability) and drop for easy access to your baby for soothing or feeding.
12. Ollie Swaddle
Another swaddle favorite that snagged lots of votes is the Ollie.
While it has Velcro closures like many other swaddles, the Ollie stands out for its open bottom that’s tied off with a sewn-in elastic band right beneath your baby’s feet.
It makes it easy to customize the length and means this swaddle will last longer than many others on the market. It even works as a transitional swaddle with one or both arms out.
Just be warned; they sell out fast!
13. The Honest Company Club Box Diapers
Honest diapers are popular among parents for a variety of reasons, including their charming designs and sustainability.
These disposable diapers are made from plant-based materials and gathered from sustainably managed pine and spruce trees.
They do an excellent job of wicking away moisture and keeping your baby dry and happy.
They now have a wetness indicator (something parents have requested for years) as well as a newborn version with a belly button cutout.
14. 4moms MamaRoo4 Multi-Motion Baby Swing
A swing that mimics all the ways newborns like being rocked? Genius. With five natural motions like the bounce of a parent’s arms or a vehicle ride, the mamaRoo simulates all the ways newborns want to be comforted.
There are five different speeds, built-in sounds, plus the option to connect your own music and manage everything via Bluetooth.
15. Solly Baby Babylist x Solly Baby Collaboration Wrap Carrier
We hear repeatedly from parents about how much they love this baby wrap. The universal fit, buttery-soft fabric, and ease of being able to keep the baby close are just a few of its standout features.
There is a bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it we promise it’s the wrap you’ll reach for again and again, especially during those first few months.
16. Mockingbird Single Stroller
The Mockingbird is a newcomer to our Best of the list, and it’s a really incredible find: a truly wonderful stroller with luxurious amenities at a cheap price.
There’s a one-handed fold and never-flat wheels, and the modular seat faces you or turns outward.
A suspension system and mobility that rivals much more expensive strollers, a large storage basket and loads of style are among the other characteristics to appreciate.
A Single-to-Double model is also available.
17. Hello Bello Diapers
Another debut on this year’s list is Hello Bello disposable diapers. They’re stylish and really absorbent and are made with sensitive skin in mind.
They also feature a plant-derived core liner and sustainably harvested fluff pulp but cost way less than other comparable diaper brands, which we love. You can get them a la carte or via a subscription bundle.
18. Playtex Diaper Genie Complete
If you’re going to have to deal with dirty diapers (spoiler alert: you are), you may as well find a diaper pail that makes things a little easier and a little less stinky.
The Diaper Genie is a fave thanks to the foot pedal that allows you to open it even when your hands are full. It’s also designed to lock in odors to keep things a little less smelly.
19. Lovevery The Play Gym
The Play Gym by Lovevery was designed by child development experts—and it shows.
There are five “development zones,” each with activities for your little one from the newborn days all the way through to toddlerhood when the gym turns into a tiny fort for older kiddos.
There’s also a play guide with research-backed play suggestions for all developmental stages through the first year included.
Cute parents also showed a lot of love for Lovevery’s Play Kits Subscription, a Montessori-inspired toy subscription service that delivers developmentally appropriate toy kits right to your door.
20. DockATot Deluxe+ Dock
Another product to answer the eternal question of, “Where exactly do I put this baby when my arms need a break?” the DockATot is a safe, stylish spot for your baby to chill when you need to get things done or need a break.
The raised, the rounded outer tube creates a cozy, womb-like pod, and it’s lightweight enough to easily move from room to room. It’s also the perfect spot for tummy time.
Keep in mind: most babies will outgrow it after about eight months, and it shouldn’t be used for sleep or in a crib, bassinet, Playard, or other contained area.
21. Snuggle Me Organic Bare Infant Lounger
Think of the Snuggle Me like a warm hug for your newborn, making them feel safe and cocooned. The baby’s weight in the center pulls the bumpers in on all sides, mimicking the feeling of being held.
It’s pricey, but lots of parents swear by it for helping even the fussiest of babies calm down. And like the DockATot, you won’t want to use this lounger for sleep or in a crib or other enclosed space like a playard or bassinet.
22. Pampers Swaddlers Disposable Diapers
Pampers Swaddlers once again hit our Best of the list as a favorite among parents who are using disposable diapers.
They’re super soft, boast a flexible fit (which means fewer poop explosions) and the newborn size has a contoured umbilical cord notch.
There’s also a wetness indicator to let you know when it’s time for a change.
23. Graco Simple Sway Swing
If you’re not up for dropping hundreds of dollars on a swing, don’t worry; this affordable swing from Graco was one of their favorites.
It has a small frame so it won’t take up a ton of floor space and six sway speeds, two vibration settings and 15 sound options. Just remember, it’s not approved for sleep.
24. Water Wipes
Lots of parents love these wipes for what’s not in them instead of for what is. Made from 99% water and a drop of fruit extract.
Water Wipes are perfect for keeping your little one clean from head to toe. They’re fragrance-free and ideal for sensitive new skin.
25. Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment
And speaking of baby skin, there’s pretty much nothing that Aquaphor doesn’t heal. This multipurpose ointment helps protect your baby’s skin from diaper rash and helps to soothe and heal it if they end up with a rash.
It’s also great for chapped skin and cheeks, healing minor cuts and scrapes, and lots more.
26. Comotomo Baby Bottle Bundle Starter Gift Set
There are seemingly endless options for bottles, but Comotomo’s silicone bottles consistently rise to the top of most parents’ favorites list.
They’re made from silicone and have a unique shape and feel that mimics a breast. They work well for babies and feature a wide base with minimal parts for easy cleaning.
27. Elvie Breast Pump
Making its debut on our list is one of the best things to pump in years: the hands-free pump. The Elvie is silent, completely cordless, and slips right into your bra so you can pump anytime, anywhere.
The pump has variable suction with seven intensity settings and connects to Evlie’s app to monitor your milk volume in real-time and track pumping history.
30. Boon Lawn Countertop Drying Rack
Any new parent will tell you that the amount of stuff you’ll be washing (and drying) seems to quadruple the second your baby arrives.
This fun, modern drying rack will help keep it all contained—and will also look great in your kitchen. It holds a huge number of bottles, nipples, pump parts, and more and allows for air circulation and a tray to catch drips.
31. Yogasleep Hushh White Noise Machine + Travel Case Bundle
Baby sleep on the go can be a challenge, which is why lots of parents told us how much they love and appreciate this travel-ready sound machine.
There are three different white noise settings, and it also features a soft nightlight, a flexible clip to attach to just about anything, and a travel case for safekeeping.
32. Moby Classic Wrap Carrier
The Moby Wrap is one of the most comfortable infant carriers available, because of its t-shirt softness and adaptability to every body type.
It’s a single long piece of fabric (no rings or buckles) that wraps around your entire torso and over your shoulders to create a snug, kangaroo-style pouch for your kid while leaving your hands free.
Because it produces such a close hug, it’s especially helpful for newborns.
33. Snoo Smart Sleeper Bassinet
Invented by pediatrician Dr. Harvey Karp, the Snoo is one of the smartest bassinets around. It detects the baby’s crying and turns on sound and movement that mimics the womb, lulling your baby back to sleep.
There’s also an attachable swaddle that keeps babies in a safe position on their back. If the price tag gives you a sticker shock, check out the rental option.
34. Babybjörn Bouncer Balance Soft
This bouncer has earned a longstanding and well-deserved spot on our best of the best list from most parents.
Its simple, sleek, and ergonomic design moves in response to your baby’s movements and fits seamlessly into any decor. It also folds flat for easy storage and converts to a toddler seat once your baby gets older.
35. Baby Brezza Formula Pro Advanced
Think a machine that mixes formula for you is a little much? Think again. This amazing gadget will save you so much time if you’re giving your baby formula on the regular.
It instantly prepares warm formula with the touch of a button and can make up to 20 eight-ounce bottles at a time. It also eliminates air bubbles and gets the formula to just the right temperature.
36. Haakaa Manual Breast Pump
Almost every parent knows a brilliant product when they see one. This squishy silicone pump attaches right to your breast and uses natural suction to collect your milk.
You can use it for milk expression or collect milk from your letdown on one breast while you’re feeding on another. It’s also super compact and travel-friendly.
37. Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers
Parents love Huggies diapers for their affordability and their super absorbent liners that instantly wick away moisture.
They keep your little one comfy while also protecting their skin from becoming irritated, which can lead to diaper rash. The newborn size also has an umbilical cord cutout.
38. Ubbi Ubbi x Babylist Steel Diaper Pail
This popular diaper pail is a parent favorite and a top bestseller. Made from steel, it helps trap and eliminate odors.
It’s also easy to load and clean and uses regular trash bags rather than special inserts. This herringbone pattern is exclusive to lovely parents.
39. Spectra S1 Plus Electric Breast Pump
The rechargeable battery on the Spectra S1 helps make pumping a bit more portable. Pair that with the fact that this is a hospital-grade pump that’s powerful and quiet and it’s easy to see why it tops so many pumping parents’ best-of lists.
40. Boba Baby Wrap Carrier
Another favorite wrap is the Boba, a long piece of thick, soft French terry that’s one size fits all and lets you keep baby close in a forward-facing inward position.
The material is made from 5% spandex so it keeps its shape and helps the wrap stretch to provide a snug fit for your baby. Just take note that since the fabric is on the thicker side, it’s not ideal for warmer climates.
41. UPPAbaby Mesa Infant Car Seat and Base
Since so many parents are fans of UPPAbaby’s popular Vista stroller, it’s no surprise that the brand’s car seat also snags a spot on our list.
The modern design, vast array of safety features, and easy compatibility with both UPPA strollers and lots of other brands make this car seat a go-to for lots of parents.
It’s also super easy to install using LATCH connectors and a unique tightness indicator.
42. Baby Jogger City Mini GT2 Stroller
There’s a lot to love about this stroller, but the feature that we hear about the most from parents is its one-handed fold.
The City Mini is so easy to open and close in only a few seconds. It’s also an agile, all-wheel suspension stroller that works just as well for city families as it does for those in the ‘burbs.
You can create your own travel system using an infant car seat adapter (sold separately) and use the stroller from newborn days up to 65 pounds.
43. Chicco Bravo Trio Travel System
Because of its mix of features, pricing, and performance, this travel system is a bestseller in the Babylist Shop and placed high in our Best of a survey among Babylist parents.
The car seat is safe and simple to install, the stroller can be used as both a lightweight frame and a full-featured stroller, and it all comes at a reasonable price when compared to competing for travel systems.
44. Skip Hop Explore & More 3-Stage Activity Center
We adore any baby gear that lasts a long time, and most parents do as well. The multi-stage Explore and More begins as an activity center, then transitions to a play zone, then to a toddler-sized table.
There are enough activities to keep your child occupied, and we like how the design is more subtle than some other similar activity centers.
45. Infantino Flip Advanced 4-in-1 Carrier
No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you: this carrier is truly under $25 and completely fantastic.
The Flip holds its own against other similar carriers that cost hundreds of dollars, with four carry configurations and a comfortable fit.
46. WubbaNub Pacifier
Are you tired of having to replace pacis that have been dropped or rummaging through your diaper bag to find one? This pacifier with connected plush is easy for your child to hold on to and difficult to lose at the bottom of your diaper bag.
There are also a plethora of adorable creatures to choose from.
47. Earth Mama Organic Diaper Balm
One hundred percent organic and made with oils, herbal extracts, and botanicals, parents rave about this diaper balm for being gentle on baby’s skin while also being really effective in preventing and treating diaper rash.
A little goes a long way, so even a small jar will last you quite a while.
48. Philips Avent Fast Baby Bottle Warmer
This straightforward bottle warmer operates exactly as advertised: it warms bottles and baby food quickly and without hotspots.
It’s also fairly compact, so it won’t take up a ton of room on your counter. Lots of parents love to pair it with Phillips Avent’s Natural Glass Bottles.
49. Tubby Todd The Essentials Gift Set
This collection includes everything you need for bath-time and beyond, like hair and body wash, an all-over ointment, lotion, and bubble bath.
Tubby Todd products are made without toxins and other icky ingredients and use fragrances that are made from only natural, aromatic raw materials.
50. Keekaroo Peanut Wipeable Changing Pad
We think it’s always a good idea to reduce the amount of laundry we do.
The Keekaroo flips the standard changing pad on its head, turning a non-slip, waterproof, and the entirely wipeable surface where you may change your baby into a non-slip, waterproof, and completely wipeable surface.
This is a popular choice among parents and gear experts.
51. Doona Infant Car Seat & Stroller
There’s nothing quite like the Doona—and that’s what’s so great about it. This hybrid product morphs from an infant car seat into a stroller with the click of a button.
It’s perfect if you’re looking to cut down on the amount of gear you’re lugging around or if you’re simply looking for a seat that’s easy to get in and out of your vehicle.
52. My Brest Friend Original Nursing Pillow
Lots of nursing parents find that support pillows can be really helpful, especially during the beginning months of breastfeeding.
The My Brest Friend is loved for its extra support; it’s much firmer than other nursing pillows on the market, helping you to position your baby for a better latch and reduce the strain on you.
53. Boppy Original Nursing Pillow Cover
Another popular nursing pillow pick is the Boppy. This pillow functions both as a nursing pillow (it’s a bit softer than the My Brest Friend) and as an infant support pillow that can be used for lounging, tummy time, and more.
Confused about which one is right for you? Check out our head-to-head comparison.
54. Love to Dream Swaddle UP Original
Many babies like to sleep with their arms up, so the designers of the Swaddle UP designed a swaddle that allows them to do just that.
This popular swaddle features a sack-like design and an easy zipper that lets your baby self-soothe with their hands by their face while also calming their startle reflex, helping to promote longer stretches of sleep.
55. Nuna Pipa Infant Car Seat & Base
Babylist parents love this bestselling seat for a few main reasons. It’s one of the lightest infant seats on the market, weighing in at only eight pounds.
It’s also super easy to install, beautifully designed, and packed with safety features. If you prefer an even lighter seat, check out Nuna’s Pipa Lite; just keep in mind that it can only be used with a base, not with a seat belt.
