Anyone who has had a baby or is about to have a baby knows that stocking up on baby gear before and after your little one arrives can help save your sanity when the days get tough. Some baby gear is great for making life easier on a day-to-day basis, while others help you through a specific situation like spending the night out or traveling.

It’s true, whether you have a newborn or growing baby, there’s always something new to ease your day or stock up on. That’s why savvy parents always keep an eye out for the best or most popular deals on baby gear. To help you out, here are six of the most popular baby items on Bestbuy.ca right now.

Prelude Play Yard from Safety 1st

Having a play yard is great for traveling, but any seasoned parent will tell you how handy it is to have one at home. The Prelude Play Yard is a popular item because it gives you a full-sized bassinet and elevated change table, but you can also remove the bassinet for when your baby is older. With a toy bar and plenty of storage, it’s the perfect place to put your baby down when you need a little hands-free time.

Safety 1st Enspira 65 Car Seat

Nothing is more important than keeping your baby safe while in a moving vehicle, and the Safety 1st Enspira 65 can do that while keeping your child snug and comfortable.

It has 3 different modes including rear-facing, front-facing, and booster, and with a five-point harness you know that your child is secure while you are driving.

Eddie Bauer Home & Travel Bouncer


I credit my baby bouncer for keeping me sane when I had two kids under the age of two. I could put my son in the bouncer and keep him close while my daughter and I spent time together. I didn’t have the Eddie Bauer Home & Travel Bouncer when he was a baby, but I wish I did. The soothing vibration comforts baby while the toys keep your little one engaged. Plus, it folds up so it’s quick and easy to take it with you on the go.


Ergobaby Performance Collection Ventus Carrier

There are a few things no one tells you before you bring home your first baby, and one of them is that carrying your little one around is going to cause serious pain in your arms, neck and back. My first baby was fussy when I put her down, so I invested in a carrier and it became my go-to baby gear.

The Ergobaby Peformance Collection Ventus Carrier will be your favourite baby gear. It distributes your baby’s weight between your hips and shoulders so can save on back and neck pain, and it’s so cozy it will be your baby’s favourite place to nap.

Motorola MBP41 baby monitor

Video baby monitors are a lifesaver. I swear, I can’t believe how I managed before them and I can’t imagine any parent getting along without one anymore. You know all those trips you take to your baby’s room to make sure he or she is OK? The Motorola baby monitor lets you do that without disturbing them.

The Motorola MBP41 baby monitor gives you a crystal clear picture, infrared night vision, remote pan, tilt, and zoom, and two-way audio so you can hear and talk to your baby. That way you can kick back and relax when your baby is sleeping, instead of making constant trips to the nursery.

aden + anais swaddles

You’ve given your baby a bath and he or she is ready for bed. What do you wrap them up in? For the most comfortable sleep, parents are turning to aden + anais super snug swaddles. They’re created from muslin cotton that gets softer the more you wash it, and the breathable fabric keeps your baby from overheating. When baby is swaddled they sleep like a dream, and so will you.

These six baby items are available now, and be sure to check out everything baby on Bestbuy.ca.
