It's no secret that having a baby or growing your family is expensive, and a lot of that upfront cost is on baby gear. Car seats, strollers, travel systems, high chairs—it all adds up. Which is why mamas are always on the lookout for the best savings.

The good news? You don't have to sacrifice your dream item because of the price tag. For all of September,'s Best of Baby Month has savings on so many baby items.

Here are the best savings—hurry because they won't last long!

Graco 4Ever 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seat, Cameron


This car seat has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews and for good reason. It's made to grow with your child (up to 120 pounds!) so you don't have to continually purchase multiple car seats. Your little one will stay comfortable with the 10-position headrest and 6-position recline. And mama will love the FussFree harness and InRight LATCH system that makes installation and getting in and out of the seat seamless.

Price: $199.99 (regularly $269.99)


Graco Blossom 6 in 1 Convertible High Chair, Studio


If you're looking for a high chair to grow with your family, this one offers six height adjustments and multiple recline positions to take it from an infant high chair up to a youth chair. With a super comfy and (score!) spill-friendly seat pad, you can easily wipe it down or throw it in the washer for easy cleanup.

Price: $131.99 (regularly $189.99)


Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Travel System


Looking for a quality travel system without breaking the bank? Look no further. This will work for your newborn up to 50 pounds, or 42 inches tall.

Price: $132.22 (regularly $143.99)


Fisher-Price Cradle 'n Swing, Sweet Snugapuppy

Price: $106.99 (regularly $127.90)


Safety 1st Grow and Go Sprint 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat


If you'd prefer a non-bulky car seat, this one takes up less space in the back seat without compromising on safety. It has harness holders so you can place them out of the way while you're getting your kid in and out. Plus, it grows into three stages—up to 100 pounds.
