The 14 Best Baby Products Of 2021
1) Antimicrobial Humidifier
But the not-so-great part is that a moist humidifier can also be a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. To keep the grime away, go with an antimicrobial humidifier with an LED disinfecting light.
2) Hydrating Bubble Bath
Bubble baths are a staple for any family with kiddos, and a foamy, sudsy bubble bath is nothing new. But a bubble bath that makes five-star bubbles and moisturizes your little one’s skin at the same time? Now that’s something to talk about!
The foaming bubbles of Mustela’s Multi-Sensory Bubble Bath make bath time both therapeutic and fun for your little one.
Our biodegradable formula is dermatologist- and pediatrician-tested and is composed of 88% plant-based ingredients, including marine extracts to help maintain the skin's water balance.
Bubble baths will never be the same again.
3) Pacifier Weaning System
But, as all parents know, when the time comes to ditch the pacifier, weaning your little one off of it is easier said than done. That’s where a pacifier weaning system comes in.
With five pacifiers that are each less satisfying than the one before for your baby to suck on, all you have to do is introduce the binkies in the right order.
4) Breathable Crib Mattress
When you lay your little one down to rest, you want sound sleep for them and peace of mind for you. A breathable crib mattress can help your baby stay comfortable and safe all night long.
It not only helps to do away with sweaty backs, but it also allows your baby to breathe straight through the mattress in case they roll over in the middle of the night.
Comfy and safe is the name of the game!
5) Skin-Soothing Pajamas
Speaking of where you put your baby to sleep, what they’re wearing when they snooze is also important, especially if your little one has eczema-prone skin.
Mustela Stelatopia Skin Soothing Pajamas are 100% cotton pajamas made using microcapsule technology to deliver soothing moisture to the skin throughout the night.
6) Wearable Breast Pump
Breastfeeding doesn’t work out for every mother and baby, and you shouldn’t feel ashamed if you aren’t able to breastfeed for whatever reason. But if you are nursing, a wearable breast pump can make your life much easier!
Opt for a pump that is tube-free, easy to wear, and frees up both of your hands so you can pump no matter where you are or what you’re doing.
7) Nipple Cream
Breastfeeding can be a wonderful experience for both you and your baby, but it can also be challenging and uncomfortable at times. You can ease discomfort with a natural, high-quality nipple cream. It’s an essential for every nursing mom!
Our Nursing Comfort Balm is just what it sounds like: a soothing balm for sore nipples. The lanolin-free formula moisturizes and protects your nipples, eases discomfort, and helps to replenish and restore skin during and after breastfeeding.
8) Glass Baby Bottle
For bottle-taking babies, we love glass baby bottles! While it isn’t your traditional baby bottle, a glass bottle allows you to stay away from the chemicals that are found in plastic bottles.
And if the combination of glass and babies sounds like a disaster waiting to happen, don’t worry — the glass is wrapped in rubber to prevent breakage.
9) Baby Wrap Or Carrier
A baby wrap or carrier is probably already on your must-have list. But we decided to list it here just to be sure because it really is an essential!
The right wrap or carrier will be comfortable and easy to wear, soothe your baby, and keep your hands free.
And, while they’ve been around for quite a while, new models are always coming out, so you’ll definitely be able to find one that’s just right for you.
10) Mineral Baby Sunscreen
Instead of using chemicals to absorb and deflect the harmful rays of the sun, mineral sunscreen uses skin-safe zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. This makes it safer for your baby’s sensitive skin and also for the coral reefs and the sea creatures we all love.
Protect your baby’s skin with Mustela’s SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Lotion. This fragrance-free sunscreen is made with non-nano zinc oxide instead of chemical UV filters and contains no parabens, phthalates, or phenoxyethanol.
It’s gentle enough to use on babies and effective enough to provide sun protection for the whole family. It provides protection from UV rays while hydrating your little one’s skin with coconut oil, macadamia oil, and vitamin E.
And when you’re on the go, be sure to toss our SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Stick in your bag! It offers easy and effective broad-spectrum sun protection for babies, children, and the entire family.
As you’re enjoying the sun, you can rest easy knowing all of our suncare products are NEA certified. Win-win!
11) Natural Diaper Cream
Diaper cream is in every parent’s diaper-changing stockpile, but we’re not talking about any old diaper cream. We’re talking about a natural, moisturizing, calming cream made with ingredients you can feel good about putting on your baby’s irritated bottom.
Mustela’s Diaper Cream with Olive Oil and Aloe is an easy-to-apply, talc-free formula that leaves a moisturizing layer on your baby’s skin to soothe and diminish redness at every diaper change.
It’s made with 99.7% naturally derived ingredients, including aloe vera, sunflower oil, and olive oil that is sourced from family-owned groves in the South of France.
Plus, our Diaper Cream with Olive Oil and Aloe is designed to be environmentally conscious inside and out. It’s EWG-verified, and the packaging is made from sustainably sourced sugar cane, and we’ve gotten rid of secondary cartons.
12) Organic Lotion
Don’t tend only to your baby’s behind. Moisturize the rest of their tiny body, too! But not with just any lotion.
Our Organic Hydrating Cream with Olive Oil and Aloe is not your run-of-the-mill baby lotion. It’s an EWG Verified™ organic skincare product that nourishes and moisturizes your baby’s delicate skin and is safe for the whole family.
This fragrance-free cream is composed of 99.6% naturally derived ingredients, including organic aloe vera, organic sunflower oil, and organic olive oil sourced from family-owned olive groves in the South of France.
For the littler babes who aren’t walking yet, there’s no need to put them in a pair of shoes. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have cute options to keep your baby’s feet warm.
We love shoe-socks — comfy socks that look like adorable baby shoes. Take your pick of various colors and patterns. There’s nothing cuter!
14) Organic Micellar Water
When it comes to the best products for your baby’s skin, we’ve got one more for you — Mustela’s Organic Micellar Water with Olive Oil and Aloe.
If you aren’t familiar with micellar water, here’s how it goes: use micellar water and a cloth or cotton ball to gently clean your baby’s face, body, or diaper area.
That’s all there is to it! There’s no need to rinse it off with water, making cleanup quick and easy.
Organic Micellar Water with Olive Oil and Aloe is EWG Verified and carefully crafted with only 8 ingredients, 99.7% of which are naturally derived. Take it with you wherever you go so you can keep your little one clean no matter what adventures you have together!
