Baby Safety

As a new mom is all too aware, her first job is to keep baby safe. The amount of baby safety gear that’s available is mind-boggling and the spectrum of products runs from totally essential items (outlet plugs) to entirely superfluous ones (knee pads for crawling babies). Baby safety products are important but mom should also know CPR, basic first aid, and how to childproof her home. It’s enough to send a mother haywire but don’t worry, we have you covered - our top-notch advice and answers to moms’ common safety questions will make you a baby safety pro. How can I keep baby safe in the car? What should I do to make my nursery safe? Are there any cute baby gate options? These questions and more are expertly addressed in our Q&A’s and baby safety guides.

LEVANA Astra with Oma+ Baby Video and Movement Monitoring System

This trio from Levana offers all the reassurance you need as a new parent. The battery-powered Oma+ component clips on to baby’s diaper, sensing those slight abdominal movements that indicate baby’s doing just fine. But after 15 seconds of complete stillness, it gently vibrates to encourage movement. And if there’s no movement for 20 seconds, you’ll be alerted from the monitor. In other words, you’ll never miss a thing. $230, Target.com
