3. Baby perfume
MORE Parenting Essentials
There’s nothing like the smell of a newborn baby, or is there? Clearly, French babies need to step it up a notch with perfumes made just for bubs like this one from Bonpoint which apparently evokes smells of fresh-cut grass cos’ we all know the lawn is where it’s at. It’s also deemed safe for baby skin so you can ‘spray without fear’ (image credit: Vogue)
4. Zaky hand pillow
This idea was actually born out of a heartwarming story of a mother whose premature baby survived only because of constant kangaroo care touch from herself and the hospital staff after a tropical storm in Texas left them without power. However … they look super creepy and they’re not safe to leave in babies’ cots. (Image via: The Zachy)

7. Potty mitts
Kids can’t stop putting their hands all over the toilet when they’re toilet training, so if you’re a germaphobe then this is the product for you! Disposable mittens so they can touch everything to their heart’s content – good luck trying to get these on when they have a sudden urge to poo at the shopping centre.
