Slumber Helper

Baby needs a nap outside the nursery? MyBaby SoundSpa On-the-Go re-creates the soothing whir of a larger sound machine. Choose from heartbeat, ocean, lullaby, or, of course, white noise, then set the timer for 15 to 45 minutes. $10; homedics.com.

Fix-It Cream

Our beauty director always keeps the Sensitive Baby All Natural Hydrating Stick in her baby bag. Made with medical-grade colloidal oatmeal, it can soothe a sore tush, take the itch out of a bug bite, or heal a chin that’s chapped from too much drool (#babyproblems). $10; babobotanicals.com.
