4. DOONA INFANT CAR SEAT
Why Parents Love It: There’s no getting around it – the Doona is pretty much the coolest thing in baby gear we’ve seen in a long time. The innovative car seat actually transforms right into a stroller in just moments, eliminating the need to buy both items separately. And at just $499, this state-of-the-art, 2-in-1 design is kind of a steal.
5. HALO BASSINEST
Why Parents Love It: The Halo Bassinest is definitely a step up (or two, or three) from the bassinets we napped in growing up. With a 360-degree swivel and retractable walls, baby’s always close by and easy to soothe at a moment’s notice. You can even play sweet lullabies or set it to vibrate with the push of a button!
