7 Shark Tank Baby Products You Wish You Invented
Published: January 15, 2017
Any parent will tell you that raising children is not easy. But if we think back to how it was to raise children 20, 30, or even 40 years ago, there have been many advances that have made having a family a little easier and safer. Traveling with a child has never been easier and let’s be real, there has never been more options for dressing your child in the most stylish and creative clothes. Many of the benefits we have are due to some pretty useful inventions.
Shark Tank is one of the most popular television programs around the world, and it regularly showcases products developed by new parents and entrepreneurs who have ideas for making baby care safer, more efficient, and more fun. Here are three buzzworthy Shark Tank baby products that you’re sure to love. These can all be found on Amazon – be sure to add them to your registry! These also make excellent gifts for new parents.
Hatch Baby is the company behind the world’s first smart baby changing pad, and it’s one of the most buzzworthy Shark Tank baby products of them all. Not only does it provide a safe and comfortable place for you to change your baby, but it also allows you to track your baby’s weight, feedings, diapers, and sleep – all from your Android or Apple smartphone. It provides new parents with unprecedented peace of mind.
The Hatch Baby changing pad is so much more than its name may entail. “Grow” is a new app technology incorporated into Hatch Baby products that allow parents to track their baby’s weight, sleeping patterns, nursing sessions, heart rate, and much more. The changing pad is equipped with the latest technology, similar to a smartphone. Used with the Grow app, parents can keep track of vital statistics which can be reassuring to many parents. Parents of premature babies or low-weight babies have found this to be an essential product for tracking their child’s progress. This Hatch Baby product has allowed many parents to feel reassured that their child is on track and progressing as they should be.
Mealtime for toddlers can certainly be a chore. No matter how hard you try, it seems that your child would rather play in his or her food than eat it. Chances are good that more than one plate or bowl has hit the floor, but the EZPZ placemat can change all of that. It is made of high-grade silicone that sticks to the surface of your table like magic, keeping your little one’s meal securely in place. It’s dishwasher safe, too, which makes cleanup a snap.
I have tried similar products before (a bowl with a suction cup), but they didn’t really work as advertised. The EZPZ placement isn’t just useful because it stays in place on the table or highchair top, but it comes with three different compartments for food separation, and it is deep enough to hold cereal or oatmeal. Not only that, they are easy to transport, use, and clean. The placemats do not contain any harmful contaminants like BPA, PVC, lead, or phthalates) which is definitely an added bonus. The EZPZ placement is certainly an invention many parents are quite thankful for.
Freshly Picked Baby Moccasins
A baby’s first steps is one of the biggest milestones in their transition to toddlerhood. Many parents have expressed concerns about the right shoes for their baby to wear in order to make that transition with proper growth. With Freshly Picked baby moccasins, you can be reassured they will benefit your child’s growth without sacrificing style. You will be hard pressed to find shoes cuter than the Freshly Picked baby moccasins. The colors and patterns are super cute and original. They have soft soles, so they do not interfere with a child’s ability to walk. The moccasins actually help a child with balance and coordination.
There’s nothing cuter than tiny baby shoes, and that’s why Freshly Picked baby moccasins are one of the most popular Shark Tank baby products of all time. They’re made of real leather, and they come in a variety of sizes to fit your baby or toddler. The best part? Not only are the available in a rainbow of colors to please the eye, but the textures of the soles vary to accommodate your little one’s progress as he or she learns to walk, too.
Multitasking is vital to my survival in those first few months of infancy, and it still is today. As seen on Shark Tank, Beebo is a hand-free bottle holder that allows a parent to make the most of feeding time. With this product, a mom or dad can hold baby, the bottle, and still have a hand free to read a book, give them a nice little massage, or finish up packing lunches or making dinner. Beebo is lightweight at just over a pound, and it is also BPA-, Phthalate, and lead-free. This product is a great companion for any parent who could use just one more free hand! Beebo has a few different color options, and it is simple to use and maintain.
If you have a child that uses a pacifier (I’m guessing this is most parents, kudos to you if you’re one of the lucky ones), then PullyPalz is definitely a product you will want to check out. Not only is Mo-Mo the Monkey adorable beyond words, but he also has a purpose that benefits you and your child. Mo-Mo has hands that can hold just about any type of pacifier (it should be noted that it does not come with a pacifier, you supply those yourself), so you’ll never search for another pacifier again. When baby spits out the pacifier, it remains attached to Mo-Mo’s arms, so it remains in baby’s view. This helps baby develop right- and left-brain coordination, as well as hand-eye coordination. You’ll be blown away when you see your infant put the pacifier back in their mouth! PullyPalz will help keep your baby entertained, and can be attached to just about anything – a stroller, car seat, or crib just to name a few. This is a fun product that is not only functional, but helps your baby develop in order to achieve those all-important milestones.
Twin Z nursing pillow
If you are expecting twins, triplets, or more multiples, or if you have more than one young infant in your care at the same time, then the Twin Z nursing pillow was invented just for you. This Shark Tank specialty comes in a variety of colors and prints, (you can even order custom embroidery) and has a 6-in-1 functionality. The Twin Z pillow offers back support to nursing mothers and allows for that special bonding time during feedings. It can also be used as a “seat” for baby and will keep their head elevated and comfortable, and it comes with a strap so it is easily adjustable to your baby’s size. No matter your size or shape, the Twin Z pillow can be adjusted to fit your and your babies perfectly.
Buzzy is a product that was made to help kids get through their vaccinations (or any other shots) with less fear, pain and stress. Buzzy is a bee made of medical-grade plastic that uses cold and vibration to distract your child from the needle that’s about to get stuck in their arm, thigh, or other relevant body part. It is labeled as a hand-held personal pain management device and is approved by the FDA for controlling pain associated with injections and for temporary relief of minor injuries.
Buzzy is reusable and battery-operated (for the vibration aspect). It has been particularly useful for children with a horrible fear of needles (i.e. screaming bloody murder pre- or post- needle stick), or for use at home for pain relief or for those who need everyday injections (like for diabetes). Every parent should have a Buzzy on stand-by. Chances are, you will need it one day and will be thankful you have it on hand.
