Spring 2014 New Baby Gear: The Inside Scoop

Forget Mickey Mouse and the Magic Kingdom—I went to Disney World to see new baby gear! At the ABC Spring Expo in Orlando, I got to check out all of the latest mid-year baby gear releases, and I’m here to give you the inside scoop on my favorites.

The Doona Infant Car Seat + Stroller is one of the most innovative products I’ve seen in a while. Perfect for urban dwellers, the Doona transforms from a car seat to a stroller in one easy motion. It’s ideal for parents who frequently take cabs and fabulous for air travel. You can check out my video demonstration here.

The Clek Fllo car seat is designed for parents who want the look of the stylish Clek Foonf but prefer something a bit more lightweight. It weighs 10 pounds less, and at $100 cheaper, it has a lighter price as well.

Tired of slicing grapes? Get the Oxo Grape Cutter! Slide a grape into the grape cutter, push the trigger and the grape is easily sliced for your toddler.

Rhoost’s modern safety products for baby have such a great aesthetic, so I’m glad to see they’re branching out into other product categories! The Rhoost Baby Grooming Kit has all the essentials, including a hair brush, an easy-to-use nail clipper, a wooden comb and an adorable, innovative washcloth that doubles as a playful puppet to get baby giggling during bathtime.

Made of eco-friendly materials, the B-eggy Changing Pad is shaped like an egg and has a convenient strap to keep baby secure during diaper changes. It also sticks to your dresser or any flat surface without hardware and can be removed without damaging your furniture!

    That stroller/car seat is amazing! I’m having my second child in august. Hopefully when it comes out, it will be affordable.

    The Doona is going to be about $400, and unfortunately I don’t think it will be out by August.
