Every new mother will experience some difficult days. But don’t despair! We can tell you that the sunnier days will come. But don’t despair!

  1. Ingenuity Boutique Rocking Seat: For when you can’t move your arms anymore

    The first few weeks of a child’s life are often the most difficult. You can soothe the fourth trimester blues by taking a nap on the couch. You can invest in an elegant rocking chair like the Boutique Collection Rocking Chair. The seat reclines in three different positions to accommodate your baby’s preferences. It also plays soothing melodies and nature sounds to calm any sudden tantrums.

It’s easy to take the soothing power of this seat with you thanks to its lightweight design. It’s great for taking into the bathroom while you prepare.

  1. Mommy’s bliss Gripe water is a great gasser.

    Gas can be a major distraction for a baby. We love Mommy’s bliss gripe water as a herbal remedy for air bubbles, hiccups or stomach discomfort that is disrupting your child’s sleep and play. Bonus: It also helps when teething season hits.

Pro tip: Keep a second bottle in your diaper bag. We’re sure of this.

  1. Ingenuity Boutique Swing and Rocker: For soothing with the touch of a button

    Even the most experienced mamas can get tired of fussy babies. That’s why we love Ingenuity’s two-in-one SmartSize Swing & Rocker with smartphone connectivity. After you have placed your baby in the comfortable seat, use your smartphone or other device to customize images, music and even nature sounds. The headrest and seat pads are machine washable, making cleaning a breeze.

On the move? The Boutique Collection Swing ‘n Go Portable Swing is a great way to calm a tantrum, even outside of your living room. It features a SlimFold design that makes it easy to store and transport.

  1. Ergobaby Adapt carrier: hands-free cuddletime

    Did you know that infants who are worn by their parents cry less? (Mind = blown.) We love Ergobaby Adapt to wear our babies. The Ergobaby Adapt is a new design that can be used for babies (without the awkward inserts) and toddlers up 45 pounds. The innovative design can be worn in three different ways once your baby reaches six months of age. It also features lumbar support to make it more comfortable for moms.

Pro tip: Need extra support? For a customized fit, cross the shoulder straps.

  1. Ingenuity Boutique Smart and Simple Playard for overtired babies

    Sometimes you need to get to sleep, just like your mom used to say. When it’s so luxurious as the Ingenuity Boutique Collection Smart & Simple Playard, it might not be a fight for your child. The playard is equipped with a DreamCentre and bassinet for smaller babies. It’s made of plush fabrics with breathable mesh to provide a better rest. There’s also a Soothing Sounds Station that features five soothing tunes and three natural sounds to soothe even the most grumpy baby into sweet slumber. Did we mention everything your baby touches? (Even the changing table!) Everything you touch (even the changing table!)

One Less Step allows you to fold this playard quickly without having to remove the bassinet. This will make it easier for you to travel with.

  1. For fitful sleepers: Copper Pearl Swaddle Blankets

    Swaddled babies sleep better and longer, according to studies. This is the best cure for a fussy child! Copper Pearl’s knitted swaddles are a great option for a warm, cozy wrap. They are light and can be used as a play mat after the swaddling phase is over.

Tip: These pretty babies will not lose their softness when washed in the machine.

  1. When you are too tired to wrap up: Halo SleepSack Swaddle

    The Halo SleepSack is a great option for parents who are too distracted by their child’s crying to properly swaddle them. It offers all the benefits of a swaddle without any origami knowledge. This “wearable” blanket can keep your little one warm without the risk associated with a loose blanket. It can also be worn in three different ways, if your child prefers his arms to be out.

Pro tip: Diaper blowout? Do not worry. The inverted zipper on this sleep sack allows you to unzip the bottom of the sack for quick changes without disturbing slumber.

  1. MAM Pacifiers are a better option for a soothing suck

    A pacifier is a great distraction for a child who’s irritable, or if you just want to keep them occupied until their next meal. MAM consults orthodontists and pediatric dentists when designing their pacifiers. This ensures that the designs are anatomically accurate for a child’s mouth. The air holes in the shield help prevent skin irritation. And the silicone nipple has an anti-slip texture to reduce the number of lost binkies.

Pro tip: Get yourself some pacifier clips to be on the safe side.

  1. California Baby Calming lotion is the perfect massage oil to calm down your baby.

    It has been proven that baby massage can positively impact infant hormones which control stress. It’s no wonder that babies enjoy massages just as much as adults do! Calming Everyday lotion from California Baby will calm a grumpy child with a soothing massage after bath time. Calendula, rosemary antioxidant extract and a pure oil blend including French lavender combine to calm your child for a restful night’s sleep. And, bonus! This works for moms as well.

Use circular strokes when massaging the lotion into your baby’s skin.

  1. Hatch Baby Rest Sound Machine: For when they finally fall asleep

    The Hatch Baby Rest is a sound and light machine that was designed specifically for fussy babies. Hatch Baby Rest’s best feature is its complete customization, from the color and amount of light projected to the pre-set and personalized sound themes which promote healthier circadian patterns. Even better? Even better, you can manage everything from your smartphone.

Tip: The Hatch Baby Rest can also be used as a clock that tells you when to wake your baby. This could give you more sleep, mama.
