SnoofyBee

This unique changing pad is the first of it's kind and makes diaper changes easier for mom and dad and happier for baby. It's a changing pad, diaper-time play mat and diaper clutch, all in one. Your baby is gently distracted by a soft barrier, keeping their hands out of the mess down below. It also lays completely flat for a more traditional changing surface. When you're done, fold it back up into the portable clutch. It's so easy that it can be done with one hand! And the clutch lets you take it with you wherever you go for stress-free diaper changes. Available online. $29.99. snoofybee.com

Innovative Baby Bottle

Making fresh formula has never been so easy! The PopYum bottle stores the dry baby formula and water separately, and when hunger calls, you just press the button to combine the two and shake. It's designed for single-handed use, so you can hold baby or multitask with your other hand. The bottle has a wide nipple and natural latch to provide a smooth transition from breast to bottle and an anti-colic vent that returns air into the bottle and not your baby’s tummy. The included funnel makes loading formula into the nipple super easy. Water is completely sealed from the nipple and vent so there are no leaks. Made of only five parts, assembly and cleaning time are reduced. Available online. 5 oz. $13.99; 9 oz. $16.99. popyum.com
