If you love technology and you have also just become a father or mother, it is very likely that you are one of those who constantly search for the best invention to solve the little problems of everyday life. Perhaps the best camera to monitor the baby while he/she is asleep? A vault of colored stars with relaxing music? What if you could get a spoon that tells you if the temperature of the porridge is too high?
They are inventions that exist and that you can find in any online store. They all have a technological component that makes them interesting and above all, makes things much easier for us. Here are 10 cool gadgets for tech moms and dads.
1. TP-LINK NC260 A HD DAY / NIGHT WI-FI CAMERA
There is nothing that gives us more peace of mind than being able to see our baby sleeping peacefully through the camera. And to know that anytime he cries we can easily hear him/her. That’s what gadgets like the TP-Link NC260 are for. It is a day and night WiFi camera in HD, which will allow us to control the status of our baby at any time.
It is a system that provides us with high quality HD video on your smartphone, tablet or computer. It consists of night vision (ideal for nights), two-way audio (so that we can communicate with the baby and that he can hear our voice before we go for him), sound and movement detection with instant notifications and card storage SD.
The best of all is that when our babies are older, we can continue to use this system, to be aware of the little ones while they play in their room, take care of the elderly or have the house watched while we are away. The TP-Link NC260 costs 71 euros.
2. TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SPOONS
What are you going to start with the porridges? Well, in addition to making them very tasty, you will also have to take care of something else: that they are at the ideal temperature. It will be something that you will check countless times so that your baby does not burn. If you don’t want to be tasting the porridge every now and then, you have another interesting solution: the spoons with temperature control.
They are so useful that (I guarantee it) you will not be able to stop using them. These from Munchkin feature a patented technology, called White Hot, which turns the tip of the spoon white when food is at a temperature of 43.3 degrees or higher. They are also very cheap: you can get four for just 6 euros.
3. BRUNOKO, A NIGHT LIGHT
As long as your baby is a baby, you will have to go to his room many times at night. If they have a little cough if they are hungry if they need a diaper change… The nights are long, so you should prepare. In order not to be constantly turning on and off the lights in the room, which can also be very annoying and probably wakes the baby, it is convenient to always have a small companion light or night light on.
This BRUNOKO rabbit is available in different colors. It is made of silicone, so it is soft and not dangerous if the baby wants to touch it. It is a good option to create a pleasant environment. It works with remote control and consists of a rechargeable battery, capable of operating up to 12 hours. BRUNOKO costs 19 euros.
4. A PORTABLE BOTTLE WARMER FROM CHICCO
During the first year of your baby’s life, you may have to warm a lot of bottles. If you breastfeed, you may sometimes have to defrost your own milk, to give it to the little one at any time. That is why it is important to have a portable bottle warmer. It may be a home one, but make sure it has a car adapter.
Yes, it is a super simple gadget, but it will get you out of a lot of trouble. In the market, you can find countless similar options, but this Chicco model is a good fit. It costs 30 euros.
5. PHILIPS AVENT SCD630 / 01, A BABY MONITOR WITH A CAMERA
We have tried it and it is one of the best inventions that we have used the most in raising our daughter. It is a simple baby monitor, in the sense that there are other types that are much more expensive, but it has everything you need to be calm while your baby rests.
It consists of an 8.8-centimeter (3.5-inch) color screen, with intercom and vibration mode. It also includes lullabies, night light, and temperature control. Unlike other devices, this Philips baby monitor will allow you to talk to your baby from another room. The Philips Avent SCD630 / 01 costs 150 euros.
6. LOLALOO’S AUTOMATIC ROCKING CHAIR
If there’s one thing that really calms babies, it’s movement. Although there are always exceptions, the rattle of the car is one of the best lullabies. In fact, if you are a father or mother, surely you always have a mania to be on the go. It does not matter if you are holding the baby or if it is in the stroller .

LolaLoo’s automatic rocking chair costs almost 200 euros.
7. BABYLED, A LIGHT SIGNAL FOR THE CAR
It is important that when you have the baby and start taking him in the car, you install a baby tag on board. What you can do is add a sticker to the rear window of the car or, for more security, opt for this luminous device . We found it a great idea to warn other drivers of the presence of children.
All you have to do is install the triangle with LEDs with a silicone adhesive. This is connected to a mat in the baby’s seat, so when the system detects the baby’s weight, the device lights up instantly. This luminous baby on board sign costs 50 euros.
8. BUZZ, A BABY NAIL CLIPPER
Babies are born with very long and sharp nails, but they are so soft that it is not possible to cut them as we would with an older child or an adult. The only thing we can do so that they do not accidentally hurt themselves is to file them. And Buzz is an ideal gadget to do so.
It works by vibration and is especially suitable for newborns and young children up to two years old. It includes four discs with different textures, which are distinguished by colors: pink (from 0 to 3 months), blue (from 3 to 6 months), green (from 6 to 12 months), and orange (more than 12 months), and two power levels. The Buzz costs 44 euros.
9. A MUSICAL PILOT LIGHT WITH MOONS AND STARS
Soothing music and lights can help babies fall asleep. They also serve to stimulate them, so they are a very good option to install in the room. The effects they produce are spectacular and the truth is that to achieve them it is not necessary to spend too much money.
This one from PABOBO, for example, works with energy-efficient LED bulbs that project blue, green, and orange moons and stars onto the ceiling. It’s portable, runs wirelessly, and automatically shuts off after 45 minutes. It costs 30 euros.
10. WISHBONE, THE THERMOMETER THAT CONNECTS TO THE MOBILE
Little ones get sick too many times during their first years of life. Your immune system is still very fragile, so be prepared. This Wishbone thermometer can be connected to the mobile and record the child’s temperature in just two seconds.
It is very useful to take the baby’s temperature without having to wake him up and it can also synchronize the measurements made on the mobile. The Wishbone infrared thermometer costs 40 euros.
