Playards + Infant Seats:

Hot New Item: 4moms mamaRoo is an infant seat, bouncer and swing that has different speeds, motions and an iPod dock.
Layette: Swaddles, sleep-sacks and bodysuits: make sure to choose the right ones for your swaddling abilities!
Customer Favorite + Easy to Use: Halo SleepSack
Pro Swaddle Choice: Aden + Anais are great; you just need to have your swaddle down pat.
Safety First: Know what you need in an infant monitor (Wi-Fi, zoom, remote access) and be sure to add baby-proofing items to your registry as well. Baby proofing a house can add up, so it’s a good idea to register for starter kits.

Registry Essential: Safety 1st Essentials Child Proofing Kit is a great starter set for new parents.
