An elephant soothes with vibrations
This perfectly plush pal “is always ready to snuggle and snooze,” Fisher-Price says. With the Calming Vibrations Soother, your child can press the elephant’s heart to “hear 10 minutes of music and soft humming sounds with calming vibrations.” The device “helps your baby understand when it’s time to wind down and go to bed,” the company adds.

Projector soothes baby in the crib
There are plenty of camera monitors that show you your baby in the crib — but what about showing your infant something interesting as well? The Moonbeam will do just that: not only keep an eye on your child for you, but also display interesting images through its projector. [ More ]
Babies R Us warms the tub
How do you keep your baby cozy during bath time? With the new and safe warming technology Babies R Us built into the “No More Chills Bathtub.” “Bath time should be both calm and soothing for your baby, providing them warmth and relaxation to help them get ready for a sound sleep,” the company says.

Sprout is a “personal pregnancy app”
With “stunning color images and 3D models,” the Sprout app delivers “helpful information about you and your baby,” says developer Med Art Studios. The app also provides tools for tracking weight, counting kicks, and timing contractions. You can “scan your entire pregnancy at a glance,” and “see when tests and procedures occur.” The info was written by doctors and mothers-to-be, the company adds. [ More ]
Monitor your baby with a touchscreen
You can view your baby from a 3.5-inch portable color display — and control the camera’s pan, scan, and zoom with the touchscreen. Summer Infant says its set-up “ensures parents peace of mind, day and night.” The system also provides two-way audio communication so you can talk with your child through the touchscreen and camera with a 400-foot range, and “give comfort and reassurance, or gentle reminders from another room.” There is also automatic black & white night vision “to clearly see baby in low-light and darkened rooms,” and sound-activated LED lights.

Low-tech: carry your baby in a wrap
Want to easily carry your infant while keeping your hands free? Despite the name of this column, we’re not recommending a robot this time: instead it’s a simple wrap made from 95 percent cotton with a little Spandex thrown in, and “free of buckles, straps or snaps.” The Boba Wrap is comfortable for newborns and infants up to 35 pounds, and holds “snug against your body to achieve a perfect fit every time.” It is also ideal for breastfeeding, the maker says, adding that “carried babies sleep better, cry less, and are healthier and happier.

Affordable adjustable rocker

From Fisher-Price comes a portable and adjustable rocker that “grows” with your baby from newborn to toddler. The seat supplies soothing vibrations as well, and has two toys built in. (You can see the reviews on Amazon are very good, except for one that notes it looks as low-cost as it is.) It’s $38 here. [ More ]
Free app for your baby bump
With the BabyBump pregnancy tracker, just enter your due date (or calculate from the last menstrual period) and the personal countdown screen shows the remaining weeks and days — with schematic embryo pictures of a baby for each week, as well as details about your baby’s size, weight and development.

Clean water flows in, dirty water flows out
Sounds like magic to me, but, 4Moms claims its Infant Tub lets the clean water flow in whole making the dirty water go out. And with the built in color-coded temperature gauge, “it’s easy to get your baby’s bath water to a safe and comfortable temperature,” the company says. [ More ]
