For the tech-savvy and the ones that are not, there are a host of gizmos with very simple use that can make parenting easy and fun. These are toys, monitors and much more, we bring you a few interesting ones.
Aloka Sleepy Light
Aloka Sleepy Light is nightlight for the kids’ bedroom, which is not just a night-bulb, but doubles into designs of dinosaurs, spaceship and mermaid. Kids can choose between 12 different colours using a remote control and if they are in a mood for a splash, there is also a rainbow colour option. Brightness can be altered to reading or sleeping mode and the in-built timer automatically turns the light off after an hour.
This is the ultimate bouncer, which doubles as a car seat, and has five different motions and in-built nature sounds. You can also connect an MP3 player to play soothing music to your baby while it is swaying gently on the bouncer. It is Bluetooth enabled, which means parents can control the bouncer remotely with their mobile device to set motion and sound. The bouncer can also be used as a swing and is the ultimate toy for soothing your baby, plus that sassy bug-look makes it appealing.
A brilliant gifting option and must-have for every new mother or mother of an infant! It is the ultimate consoler for a crying baby and its only role is to soothe a crying baby with shushing noises. You may think that’s elementary, but a mother knows its value. Also, the machine mimics rhythmic sounds of the womb which triggers the baby’s natural calming reflexes, helping her calm down and stop crying.
House with kid/s must have a thermometer! You can opt for a simple Braun ThermoScan thermometer which checks the child’s temperature from the ear and is highly accurate. This would be suitable for older kids, for babies and toddlers; the pacifier thermometer is a good option because it comes with a pacifier built-in. it is ideal for those mid-night temperature checks when babies are in their most combatant mood!
Koo-di Retractable Lock
The buggy is the most expensive baby gear you own and it has to be lugged everywhere, malls, parks, playgroups to carry the baby and its many accessories. Of course, not all places are buggy accessible and your baby’s drive has to be parked and it is liable to be stolen. The Koo-di Retractable lock is a good size and nifty weighing lock for the buggy which sits unobtrusively.
Some of these gizmos are a must-have, while others just make life easier. You can take your pick based on how convenient you feel it will be for you.
