Swarovski Sparkle Pacifier

Select the most important item in your arsenal for soothing the babe, have it encrusted in pretty crystals and plan on giving it to the one human in the house who loves a never-ending game of 'dropsy' (they drop it and you pick up -- if you can find it). Sold?

Hulabye Happy Changer

Your phone isn't the only mobile seeing some hands-free action these days. Thanks to this strap-them-in changer, you can wipe their bottom with one hand while you swipe through Pinterest photos with the other. (No worries -- their mobile isn't the talking kind, so your secret is safe with us.)
