Especially in Winter, the heated air in your baby’s room can quickly get too dry, causing discomfort and other potential problems. Instead, you can easily keep it at a healthy level of humidity with the Ultrasonic 360 Humidifier from Safety 1st, and “gently sooth baby with moisture-rich air.”
The humidifier “brings moisture-rich air to the nursery or any room of the house you choose,” the company says. “With variable mist control and 2 fully rotating outlets, it’s easy to adjust the moisture to the level you prefer.” It’s quiet, and it’s water tank lasts for 12 hours.

“Nobody likes to see their baby sick,” Pipila says, “and a pacifier is a common breeding ground and transporter of harmful germs. Sterilizing your baby’s pacifier is essential in preventing the spread of these germs.”
To help prevent the spread of germs, the Pipila sterilizes your baby’s pacifier in about 3 minutes with simple ultraviolet. It helps eliminate up to 99.9 percent of germs, the company says, and is ideal for parents and babies on the go.

This pacifier from Summer Infant is also a full digital thermometer, letting you take your baby’s temperature in a comfortable, non-invasive way. The pacifier beeps when the reading is complete. It not only displays the temperature, it shows a “Fever Alert” when baby gets too warm, glowing red if the temperature registers at 99.9 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. This gives you a “quick visual reading, especially when taking a child’s temperature at night.”
