A lot of people turn to Amazon for the big ticket baby items: Strollers, carseats and pack 'n' plays are often better deals online than at the mall and you don't have to drag them to and from the car with a cranky baby in tow. Even when we're talking lower-end items, though, Amazon can be as cost effective as it is convenient.
Here are some of the baby products on Amazon that parents are loving—both for the prices and quality:
1. Summer Infant Lil' Loo Potty, $8.89
No one wants to spent a lot on something your child is going to (hopefully) soil, right? This plastic potty is a good deal for parents who would rather save the extra cash for a real bathroom reno and a toilet the whole family can use.
2. Munchkin 2-Piece Snack Catcher, $6.99
With a lid that lets in little hands but keeps Cheerios from escaping, these to-go containers and genius and worth every penny. (Pro-tip: Go ahead and buy two sets while you're at it. These will get that much use!)
Because sometimes you don't want to take your $10 sippy cup with you to a birthday party: These little cups are spill-proof enough to save you from extra laundry—but cheap enough that you won't worry if one gets left behind.
4. 3-pack Munchkin Stay Put Suction Bowl, $6.99
Because nothing is more fun for babies than tossing food from a highchair tray, these suction-bottomed bowls are bargains and sanity savers.
These bottles will save your baby from tummy trouble—and you from shelling out too much: Snagging three bottles for less than $10 is much better than you'll find in most retail stores.
6. Sassy Developmental Bumpy Ball, $4.59
For less than the cost of fancy coffee you can get a developmentally appropriate toy that will keep baby entertained... While you drink said coffee. ?
7. The First Years Stacking Up Cups, $3.46
On the floor or in the tub, these cups keep little hands and minds occupied for just a few dollars. (They'll also keep baby from stacking with your good Tupperware.)
8. 6-pack Munchkin Soft-Tip Infant Spoons, $2.77
The dishwasher and the dryer must be in cahoots because baby spoons seem to go into the same blackhole as socks. At this price you can stock up and prevent mealtime drama.
9. Nuby IcyBite Keys Teether, $3.99
Every teething baby needs a set of colorful, gum-soothing keys. This set by Nuby is affordable and provides peace of mind for parents with BPA-free plastic.
10. Nuby Octopus Hoopla Bathtime Fun Toys, $6.88
For an inexpensive underwater adventure, check out this bath toy set from Nuby. The four-piece set includes three BPA-free rings and a friendly octopus. So you're really getting four tub time toys for the price of one.
Even if you buy everything here, the pre-tax shopping basket adds up to less than $60. Go ahead and stock up without guilt, mama!
