Parenting is hard, and we understand that being a parent for the first time can be stressful. Fortunately, there are a lot of tech gadgets that can make your life a whole lot easier.
This tech buying guide will provide an overview of the essential tech gadgets that help new parents navigate the challenges of raising a newborn.
Baby monitors are an essential piece of technology for new parents, providing a way to keep an eye on your baby while they sleep. With the advancement of technology, there are now several different types of baby monitors available, from basic audio monitors to those with video and movement sensors.
Video monitors provide a live feed of your baby’s room, allowing you to see and hear your baby in real-time. Movement monitors track your baby’s movement and alert you if there are any irregularities, giving you peace of mind.
Our recommendation would be the IMILAB A1 360 PTZ smart CCTV camera. It has human motion tracking, cry detection, and two way audio to help you keep track of your baby in the crib even when you are in a different room.
It can even be repurposed as a smart surveillance camera once your baby grows up.
Taking your baby out can be a messy affair. They tend to drop their pacifiers and small toys on the ground, and soap are not always within reach.
A mini steriliser is a nifty gadget for parents to bring outdoors. All you have to do is rinse the dirty pacifier with water and store it inside the compartment. The steriliser will emit UV light to kill bacteria, making it safe for use.
All-In-One Baby Bottle Warmer
Many new parents prefer to store pre-packed breast milk or baby formula in the fridge, ready to go when the baby gets hungry, especially late at night.
This is where a baby bottle warmer comes into play. It can warm up a milk feeding bottle to the correct temperature with ease. Some more advanced models come with a built-in steriliser and dryer function to help clean the bottles afterwards.
Our pick is the Autumnz All-In-One baby bottle warmer and steriliser, which has a large capacity to sterilise up to 6 bottles and accessories, while a dedicated bottle warmer chamber ensures the right milk temperature for the baby.
It is tough to have to hold and swing the baby with one hand, while busy with work or chores. A great option would be to place the baby on a rocker swing or chair and let them fall asleep.
The Mamakiddies baby swing is an excellent gadget to help put your kid to sleep. It supports up to 18kg weight and comes with a sun canopy and mosquito net. It is remote controlled as well, allowing you to adjust the duration and speed on the fly.
Investing in technology can be a great way for new parents to navigate the challenges of parenthood. From baby cameras to smart bottle warmers, there are several gadgets available that can make your life easier and provide peace of mind during this stressful period.
