Some parents prefer to go with what they know, relying on practical and effective traditions to decorate and structure their baby’s nursery. A few toys, a changing station, and a comfortable, safe crib are really all you need to keep baby happy and create a safe space for them to grow. But, as we continue to make technological advancements in all areas of life, many parents are turning to technology to help them create their dream nursery.
If you’ve been curious about what kind of tech is available to you and your little one, read on to find out more. All products listed are available on Amazon so you can add them to your baby shower registry, take advantage of 2-day shipping, or add to your lists to save for later!
Hatch Baby Rest Sound Machine This gadget is great for babies who struggle to sleep through minor disturbances, or families whose homes are often a bit noisy - street traffic included. This device combines a nightlight, sound machine, and even a gentle alarm if needed, all controlled through an easy-to-use app for your smartphone. This device helps any family create a peaceful, more consistent sleep experience for their little ones. Nanit Pro Smart Baby Monitor We’ve seen the future, and it looks a lot like this device. This baby monitor features an easy-to-use smartphone app and does more than just show you a livestream of your baby’s crib, it also monitors their breathing, measures sleep stats, and provides guidance to help you and baby sleep better. It also includes two-way-audio, so you can hear and speak to your little one. SNOO Smart Sleeper Baby Bassinet This innovative crib from SNOO claims to boost sleep by 1-2+ hours at night. The SNOO can detect your baby’s breathing patterns, listens for cries, and pays attention to restlessness to adjust accordingly, rocking, bouncing, or soothing your baby back to sleep when necessary. It can even respond with white noise to help lull your little one back to bed. If the price tag on this one makes you cringe, you’re in luck, you can actually rent SNOO devices for your home to save money. Newton Crib Mattress We were sold on this gadget when we saw a demonstration in which a parent put their face directly into the mattress and was still able to breathe, inhaling and exhaling fully. Unfortunately, suffocation is a huge risk to little ones, but Newton mattresses are 100% breathable, hypoallergenic, and easy to clean (seriously, just rinse it off in the shower or with a hose). Bissell Air Purifier Our bodies feel better when we pay attention to what we put into them, and that’s why it’s important to make sure your baby benefits from clean, pure air while they snooze, play, and grow. This air purifier, and others like it, make a great addition to the nursery because they’re quiet, compact powerhouses that will churn out breathable, clean air all day or night.
