Target

Promising review: "I love this brush set! Admittedly I did originally just want it because of how cute it was, but the brushes are great, there’s a brush for every bottle or pump piece you can think of. The bristles aren’t hard so they are easy to get in and out if bottles, and won’t leave scratches. The stand is great too, I love finally having a place for brushes so they don’t end up all over the place or contaminated with gross food in the sink." —Rachel

Price: $16.99

2. A Fisher-Price calming hedgehog perfect for when their baby gets fussy. They can hand their baby the vibrating *and* musical hedgehog to help soothe their cries. The electronics can be removed so the little hedgehog can take a bath in the washing machine.

Promising review: "My 5-month-old son loves this so much! I have it in his crib and the vibrate/sound combo soothes him instantly. He turns his head to look at it and it helps to calm him and regulate him as he stares at it. I love that it’s mobile and I can take it in the car. It works like a charm on the go! The music is very sweet and soft. It has a high and low volume control and options for vibrate mode as well. One of the best purchases that I’ve made, hands-down!" —ashadele

3. A baby carrier to give new parents' arms some free time so laundry, cooking, and cleaning can become a breeze. They can carry baby newborn mode, baby facing in mode, and baby facing out mode.

Promising review: "Baby is now 6-weeks-old and I use this every day. Was hesitant to buy since I thought baby might outgrow it quickly but you can twist the bottom to adjust for size and we’re still twisting the bottom twice so there’s plenty of room for it to expand. I will probably be able to use it for a few more months I would guess! Love this carrier because it’s just as comfortable as the Solly baby (really soft stretchy fabric) and it’s also way faster to get on and easier to adjust. Husband loves it too and also uses it daily. Great for doing chores, cooking, walking the dog so we don’t have to take the stroller etc." —SD

Price: $99.99 (available in six colors)

4. A floor blanket and play mat that can double as decor in the baby's nursery. This quilted play mat has interactive elements to encourage baby to play. Plus, it's machine washable which the new parents will be sure to thank you for.

Promising review: "I personally love it! does the job when I can't stay in the room with my son! very easy to mount as well. it can also cancel out other noises which is PERFECT! it was very hard to find a monitor that I would like, they all had bad reviews but this one is fantastic. I've had it for almost 3 months and it's doing the job. the only thing is the camera will shut off after a certain amount of time and you have to press a button to get it back on. but the noise still works with it off." —dev
