Our Top Picks for Baby, Pregnancy & Kid Gear 2018

Our Top Picks for Baby Pregnancy and Kid Gear 2018

The first annual SavvyMom Awards have wrapped up, and we had a fantastic time checking out the best of the best in baby, pregnancy and little kid gear in Canada.

The cool thing is, a bunch of our winners are available at Babies R Us Canada—so if you want to check them out or grab a gift for someone (or even for yourself) it’s never been easier to get this gear in your hot little hands. Some of these also make great baby registry picks!

Here’s what we voted the best:

Medela Sonata Double-Electric Breast Pump

Oh, the value of a great breast pump. It just can’t be put into dollars and cents. While this one is expensive, it’s got some great features, like the double-electric pump, which makes it fantastic for daily use. It’s designed for moms who pump several times a day. It’s also quiet, making it perfect for late night pumping sessions.

HALO SnoozyPod Vibrating Bedtime Soother

Soothing sounds and an amber glowing night light with gentle vibration? Sold. I’m already falling asleep. If there’s a product that will help me lull my babies and toddlers to sleep, I feel like it’s worth its weight in gold. This one is designed to fit most cribs, toddler and twin beds, and the sounds, along with the projection night light, creates a relaxing environment to help your child sleep.

Live Clean Baby

I still use this stuff regularly for my kids and they’re now well past the baby stage. The shampoo & wash is especially great. It’s both gentle and unscented, so your kids will be clean but still retain that amazing baby smell.

LeapFrog Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket

A classic toy by a company that knows their stuff when it comes to good baby and little kid toys, we love this little picnic basket. It’s great for pretend play and learning shapes and colours—and makes an awesome gift.

VTech Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe

Another awesome toy that we can’t say enough about, this activity desk is super cute and features an interactive desktop with five pages to explore that are filled with letters, numbers, music, colours and more. Plus, a lot of our kids love it. Tried and tested!

$79.99 | Available here

Marcus Marcus Silicone Bath Toys

Bath toys can get gross. But we love everything about these silicone rubber toys. They’re soft to the touch and easy for little hands to grasp. Plus, the dark blue silicone changes colour based on water temperature and goes white if the water is too hot. The best part is, they have a detachable design, so you can clean it easily and then allow it to air dry to prevent mold. AND they’re top-rack dishwasher safe. Sign. Us. Up.

LeapFrog LeapStart

Ah, LeapFrog again. The LeapStart 3D Interactive Learning System is great for visual or auditory learners because the touch and talk activities enhance your kid’s learning with interactive animations. Kids can work on math, reading, problem-solving skills and more with activities for two to seven-year-olds.

$59.99 | Available here

VTech KidiZoom SmartWatch

Just a little personal side note on this one—my kid has been begging for this one for the holidays. The SmartWatch lets kids take pictures, videos, play games, tell time and more. It also features two cameras that allow your child to capture video and even selfies that can be customized in the Silly Me app and made into new watch faces. Sounds super cute!
