Whether you are space constrained or not having baby products that have more than one function is a nice perk. Not only is it space saving and practical but budget friendly too. There are lots of baby products that are multifunctional but these five are some of our favorites. Do you have a favorite multifunctional product? How important is it to you to have a product that has multiple functions?
1. 4moms Breeze. The Breeze can functions as: 1) a bassinet 2) a pack n play for travel 3) a play yard 4) a changing table with its waterproof changing pad that comes with purchase – 4 functions that last you until your little one is 35 inches tall. Not to mention, the Breeze is one of the easiest baby products – seriously the set up/pack up is easier than words can even describe. If you’d ask Tyler, he’d name this as one of his all time favorite products (and he is a tougher critic than I am!).
2. BABYBJORN Baby Carrier ONE. The newest carrier from Baby Bjorn allows for front facing in/out carry as well as back wearing. It can be used from newborn (8 pounds) up to 33 pounds so for most of you will last until the age of three or so. This carrier is comfy to wear and easy to use – both important features when selecting a baby carrier – our review, here.
3. Summer Infant 3-Stage Super Seat. An editor favorite (review here), the three in one seat does three things – first, serves as an infant support seat, second, an activity table with fun toys and lastly, a toddler booster seat. This seat gets rave reviews from parents all around and its price point (averages $45) its budget friendly and a piece of gear you are sure to get your use out of. If grandma and grandpa are every looking for a piece of gear to keep at their house – this is safe bet – takes up little space and serves many purposes.
4. UPPAbaby Vista Stroller. The Vista comes as a single stroller with both a bassinet and toddler seat which allows you to use it from day one. A secondary, rumble seat can be purchased to accommodate a growing family and a piggyback board can be purchased for an even more growing family or one with an older, older sibling. Function 3 – a bassinet. UPPAbbay sells pretty bassinet stands that allow you to use the bassinet bedside/in your home. Function 4 – a laundry hamper. Well, not the stroller but the bassinet stand converts to a sleek compartment laundry hamper with the purchase of an insert. Pretty cool, right? Not to mention, this stroller is a “real mom favorite”!
5. Evenflo Exersaucer Triple Fun Learning Center. We’ve featured this multifunctional marvel several times. It converts from an overhead playmat to an exersaucer to a activity table – truly a product that can and will be used from birth to two years old. This was a favorite in our house with Miss Eloise, you can see our full review, here but the bottom line is this little set is loads of fun and while its actually footprint may not be small is saves you from having to store three separate products since it transforms along the way.
Obviously, there are many more awesome multi-functional products out there – which is your favorite?
