I don’t know about you, but when my first child was a baby I had Amazon showing up at my door at least 5 days a week. Anything that was an Amazon best seller— that promised to make my life easier, help us sleep better, or ease our baby’s crying was in my cart faster than I could say “buy it now!” As the first grandchild on either side, I had absolutely no insight from family or friends about what top baby products were the best gifts for newborns. I went seriously overboard buying baby gear, only to later stress about decluttering. Let me save you the trouble! 

This is a curated list of best baby products– the kind of items I buy for friends and some that I still use to this day, over 6 years later. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have and that it gives you a bit of ease, time, or sleep back in your life. You deserve it!

20+ Best Baby Products of 2024 from The Formula Mom

1. Organic Baby Formula, Bobbie Baby Formula

Best baby formula

Bobbie’s simple, clean recipe makes it a top recommendation for babies with no known allergies or sensitivities. I love the high levels of DHA (which meets E.U. standards!) and organic, grass-fed dairy from local U.S. farms! Whether you’re fully formula feeding, combination feeding or considering letting your partner do a night-time bottle of formula, I recommend a great quality formula to get everyone started.

2. Best Infant Probiotic, Bobbie Organic Probiotic Drops

Best baby probiotic

Probiotics are one of the only research-backed means of increasing gut flora and treating colic symptoms. I love this one as it includes multiple strains of good probiotic bacteria, is vegan and made without the Top 9 Allergens. It is USDA organic and Non-GMO plus it is Clean Label Certified and has been granted the Pesticide Free Award.

3. Best Formula Mixing Pitcher, Dr Brown’s Baby Formula Mixing Pitcher

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

A formula pitcher is a game-changer for formula-feeding parents! Did you know that you can prepare a batch of formula all at once and that it stays good in the fridge for up to 24 hours? Combo-feeding or pumping parents can also use this to combine expressed milk throughout the day.

Shop Baby's Only Organic Formula

Baby's Only makes affordable organic infant formula in the Heartland of the US. Beloved by parents, it's available at most retailers nationwide and is the most affordable organic formula in the U.S.

4. Best Baby Bottle Dispenser, Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Baby Bottle Formula Dispensers

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

Having previously tried the more popular tri-segment circular dispenser and hating it, these changed my life. They are SO small (perfect to fit in a bag or even a pocket) and the narrow spout makes them easy to pour no matter the bottle width.

5. Best Baby Bottle Cooler Bag, Mancro Breast Milk & Baby Bottle Insulated Cooler Bag

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

This baby bottle cooler bag is a must if you’re going to travel with expressed milk or previously prepared formula. The ice packs surround each bottle while the insulated walls help to maintain an appropriate temperature.

6. Best Compact Electric Kettle, CHACEEF Travel Electric Kettle Water Boiler with Keep Warm Function

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

Need warm water on the go for mixing a fresh bottle? This kettle is a great option! Simply add water and press to heat. The best part? No need to plug in.

7. Best Baby Bottle Warmer, MomCozy Portable Bottle Warmer

Best portable bottle warmer

If your baby is accustomed to warm formula or breastmilk, the MomCozy is a must-have for bottle warming. Not only does it warm in 3-5 mins, but it keeps the bottle warm for 60 minutes. Not only for milk warming, this bottle warmer can also warm up all the baby supplementary food no matter in frozen, cold, or fresh status. Fit for more than 95% milk bottles and milk bags.

8. Best Bottle Drying Rack, Boon Lawn, Twig & Stem Countertop Baby Bottle Drying Rack

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

This fun drying rack comes with the lawn, a twig and a stem. I had so many of these I started referring to it as a “golf course” instead of “grass.” The twig accessory is great for hanging bottle collars and nipples!

9. Best Baby Bottle Dishwasher Basket, OXO Tot Dishwasher Basket

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

Here’s a tip– you DO NOT need to wash or sterilize your bottles by hand! Throw ‘em on the top rack of the dishwasher and use a basket like this to keep all the bottle (or pump) parts in one place. Make sure your parts say ‘dishwasher safe’ and you’re good to go.

10. Best Bottle Sterilizer Bags, Medela Quick Clean MicroSteam Sterilizing Bags

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

Traveling and don’t have access to a dishwasher? These bags are a great option to sterilize used bottles while on the go or in a hotel room. Simply add water and steam in a microwave!

11. Best Baby Sleep / Eat Tracker, Talli Baby Infant Sleep and Eat Tracker

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

I’m a more-is-more kind of gal, and I would’ve killed for something like Talli when my first was born. Easily track feeding, sleep, and wake times with the push of a button while also providing real-time data to other caregivers via the synced app. Bonus? You can even tell Alexa to track for you! Use the code FORMULAMOM for $10 off of your purchase.

12. Best Baby Wipes, WaterWipes Original Baby Wipes for Sensitive Skin

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

If you have a baby with sensitive skin or chronic diaper rashes, Water Wipes are a great option! Made with 99.9% water and a drop of fruit extract, these are super effective while also being super gentle on the skin.

13. Best Organic Yogurt Melts, Amara Organic Yogurt Melts for Babies & Toddlers

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

Amara is changing the game for what convenient, nutrient-dense baby food looks like. These yogurt melts are free from added sugar and preservatives and are organic to boot!

14. Best Baby Sleep Sack, SleepingBaby Cozy Baby Sleep Sack Wrap

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

These sleep sacks are great to transition from a swaddle or for babies who tend to scratch at night (since their hands are covered). They also go up to size 2T-3T and come in the cutest prints!

15. Best Sleep Canopy, SlumberPod Sleep Canopy with Fan

Slumberpod sleep canopy

This is my ultimate MVP favorite for parents of littles! SlumberPod is a portable blackout solution that goes over a pack-n-play or toddler cot and creates a separate, dark sleep space. Perfect for room-sharing on vacation or at home. We still use ours for EVERY trip we take. The added fan shows that they thought of everything!

16. Best Cream for Drying Up Milk Supply, Cabo Creme Breast Cream for Engorgement, Weaning, and Suppression of Breast Milk

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

Many people don’t realize that milk production is a physiological process that occurs whether or not you initiate nursing or pumping after birth. I recommend CaboCreme as a natural means for easing discomfort and facilitating milk production reduction for those who want to dry up their breast milk supply.

17. Best Baby Bath Products, Tubby Todd Bath and Skincare

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

Our second child had sensitive skin and was rashy by nature– Tubby Todd All-Over Ointment was the ONLY thing that worked for him. We still use their lotion and bath products for both our toddler and kindergartener! Use this special link for The Formula Mom and get 10% off automatically in cart.

18. Best Toddler Training Cup, ez pz Silicone Mini Cup + Straw Training System for Infants + Toddlers

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

I love a multi-functional product! This cup can be used with the lid and straw to promote sucking skills or can be used without the lid as an open training cup. Made of silicone, this cup is easy for little hands to hold and won’t clang or break if dropped.

19. Best Lightweight Baby Stroller, Chicco Mini Bravo Plus Lightweight Stroller

The Formula Mom's 20 Essential Products

I bought and sold 7 strollers in a single year before landing on this one. It’s lightweight, compatible with the Chicco KeyFit and Fit 2 car seats, and has an easy one-hand collapse system. Super great for travel or daily use!

20. Best Toddler Formula, Baby’s Only Organic Dairy with Whey Toddler Drink

Best organic toddler formula

This toddler formula is a great option for parents who want to ensure their 1 year old gets adequate nutrition! USDA organic and with exclusively lactose as the carb source, Baby’s Only Gentle Toddler formula does not contain corn syrup like most conventional toddler formulas. I also love it as a shelf-stable option in place of whole milk when on the go or traveling!
