Now that you’re a new parent—or about to be—keeping up with the latest gear that’ll make your (and baby’s!) life easier is your new pasttime. Lucky you: We’ve uncovered a handful of new and cool goods designed with busy parents in mind. From a game-changing new carrier to a stroller that weighs just 19 pounds, read on for the latest and greatest gear to recently hit the market.
Ergo Omni 360
We love products that grow with baby, and Ergo’s newest release, the Ergo Omni 360, does just that. Just launched, this carrier will adjust to your growing baby from week one to 36 months (no infant insert needed!). The Omni 360 offers all carrier positions, including the ergonomic forward-facing option, which was popularized by the brand’s 360 model. Expect the same quality design and ease of use Ergobaby products are known for.
Available at store.ergobaby.com, $180.
Cybex MIOS Stroller
For on-the-go parents who don’t want to sacrifice design for functionality, Cybex’s new MIOS stroller is a must have. Weighing only 19.2 pounds and measuring 19.7 inches in width, the MIOS is great for navigating busy city streets. It features a mesh back and bottom for breathability (there’s a padded inlay to use on colder days), a frame you can fold up using only one hand, and a sweet retro-modern design. The MIOS comes in multiple colors and is compatible with Cybex’s Aton Q and Cloud Q car seats.

Adventurous families deserve gear that fits their lifestyle. And, when a stroller just won’t cut it, turn to the all-new Veer Cruiser. Built to explore, the Veer Cruiser boasts an all-terrain suspension, frame and tires. But don’t let its durability fool you. The souped up wagon features front swivel wheels, which make it easy to navigate tight corners and turns. It’s geared towards kids 0-5 years old (there’s an infant car seat adapter for your littles), and the sides, seat-backs and handles fold down for simple stow and go.
Available at goveer.com, $599.
Britax Endeavours Infant Car Seat
Britax just added to their line of safe and secure car seats. Their newest release, the Endeavours Infant Car Seat, has a steel anti-rebound bar for extra protection when your baby is rear-facing. According to Britax, this new feature reduces rebound rotation by up to 30% when in a crash. Also, expect a European belt guide for added convenience when you don’t have your car seat base handy (read: when you’re traveling or using a ride-sharing service).
Available at britax.com, $299.99.
Bob Revolution Flex Lunar Stroller
You’re familiar with the quick jog to the park or power walk around the block. When your day is full, you fit in fitness where and when you can—no matter the time of day. The recently released Bob Revolution Flex Lunar Stroller is designed for outdoor jaunts morning, day and night. The new stroller from the #1 jogging stroller brand features their first-ever geometric print that includes reflective fabric for high visibility, which means you’ll stay safe and visible during your evening or early morning strolls.
