You can pair the stroller with the Uppababy Mesa or other compatible car seats. The included Bassinet is perfect for naps on the go and we also love the size and maneuverability of the stroller.

There is so much to like about this soft baby carrier. First, it will help you carry the little one close to you and the baby will be cozy. Second, you get the convenience of a wrap without actually having to fuss with the wrapping. And, it provides plenty of support so you won't feel the strain of baby wearing on your back.

A diaper pail will help minimize the smell of dirty diapers in the gorgeous nursery. This Ubbi Diaper pail does just that and will also look sleek in the nursery. Plus, you can use regular trash bags versus buying special liners, thus saving some money!
With a little baby at home, taking a shower or getting a bite to eat can become quite the chore. The BabyBjorn bouncer allows you to take a moment to yourself while the baby is strapped securely to the bouncer with proper head and back support. The baby will be comforted by natural rocking that stimulates your baby’s development and you'll be able to get a moment to yourself.
INFANT OPTICS DXR-8 VIDEO BABY MONITOR

With a reliable baby monitor on hand, you can tend to chores around the house or relax. This Infant Optics monitor allows you to zoom in on the baby, remotely adjust the camera and features a 12 hour power saving audio only mode. The picture and sound quality is awesome as well.
HOMEDICS mybaby SOUND SPA
White noise machines come in handy when you want the baby to fall asleep and not get interrupted by startling noises. We love the MyBaby SoundSpa because not only does it provide white noise but also plays lullabies and projects slowly moving images of animals on to the ceiling or walls to lull a fussy baby to sleep.
BOON NAKED COLLAPSIBLE BABY BATH TUB
Bathing your little one just got a whole lot easier with the Boon Naked Bath tub which collapses on one end to recline for bathing newborns while expanding back down so older babies can sit up. The tub looks modern and can be used either on a counter top or in the bath tub.
