There are plenty of items and gadgets that will make it much easier for us to take care of a toddler. However, very often we forget about the most basic ones or we buy these items without paying attention to their specifications, parameters and overall design. This text contains 4 absolutely basic things, thanks to which taking care of a toddler will not be so laborious and stressful.

Loungers

For a mother whose child suffers from reflux, a daybed can be a great convenience. It’s not just the bouncing function, but the reclined position of the baby. Since babies with reflux have difficulty lying on their backs, a recliner can be a great way to keep your little one upright. Your child can even use a recliner until age 2. However, newborns can also safely sit in it while your hands are occupied. Thanks to the ergonomic design, the head is well supported and does not rest awkwardly (and dangerously) on the chest. Even if your baby doesn’t have reflux, a recliner is a must-have item to keep them entertained nearby while mom can take a well-deserved shower or get some rest.

Stroller

Check for a stroller that is appropriate for your baby’s age, height and weight. Newborns need to be able to lie almost flat because they cannot lift their heads. Also inspect the equipment for reliable tie-down straps. The best brakes lock the rear wheels by activating mechanisms in the wheels themselves, rather than relying on tire pressure. Some strollers have brakes for one wheel, others for two. Whatever brakes a stroller has, check that they are easy to use. It should also not contain parts that can pinch your baby’s fingers or pose a choking hazard. Leg openings should be small enough to prevent your child from sliding around. The stroller should be steered in a straight line when pushed with one hand, and the handlebars should be at waist level or slightly lower.Check for stability. The wheelbase should be wide and the seat should be low in the frame. The stroller should not tilt backward when you press the handles lightly

Also think about style. Are you aiming for a more modern look, or will you be happy with retro strollers?

Feeding pillow

If you are breastfeeding, a good nursing pillow is an absolute must have. It provides excellent support for you and your baby during feeding. In the early stages, when it can be really long, breastfeeding can strain your arms. The pillow prevents tension and pain in your arms and shoulders during this activity. Since the baby has the perfect height and position, this product allows you to nurse your baby hands-free from time to time. It is important that the nursing pillow is safe. It should be sturdy so that the baby cannot collapse in it and so that it does not roll down and place the toddler at the right height. Feeding pillows come in different shapes and sizes. It can be used anywhere and on the go

Night light

For night feedings and quick checks on your baby, it’s a good idea to have a night light. Bright ceiling lights are likely to wake the baby and make it difficult to fall asleep. Babies need to feel a clear difference between night and day. Soft, low light creates a calmer and less stimulating atmosphere, so it can help establish a better bedtime routine. In addition, nightlights can promote visual development. When your baby wakes up, their eyes are not as tired as they would be in a completely dark or completely bright environment. A dim, warm light that can be adjusted to your needs is recommended. In addition, some night lights, allow you to control the right temperature in the room, so you can be sure that your baby will sleep well and safely
