Working from home can be rewarding in many ways. Sure, not having a boss nagging you is nice, but how about a crying infant when you have a deadline to meet? We understand juggling motherly responsibilities and work simultaneously can be tough, especially if you’re a first-time mommy.
Having the right items around the house can do wonders, keeping both you and your little one satisfied. Here is a roundup of baby gear that will help you to get everything done…
BABYBJÖRN Original Baby Carrier (from $54)
Mothers aren’t exactly Vishnu. There’s only so much you can do with two arms. Baby carriers on the other hand will work in your favor for everyday multitasking. This baby carrier shields your baby in thick well-guarded little pack, fully supporting your child’s neck and head.
BabyBjörn’s design perfectly suits mothers who aren’t mechanically inclined, since it requires no assembly. The padded material and adjustable straps cushion around your torso providing a comfortable fit for both you and your baby. So go, ahead and cradle your baby on the move.
Comfort & Harmony mombo (from $29.99)
Babies that aren’t yet able to sit upright should be provided with a comfortable means to sit alongside mommy. This delicate pillow will allow your baby to safely join you on the couch. The contour shape allows your baby to sit snugly, giving her adequate head and neck support.
The design perfectly accommodates the always needed tummy-time. Spills and the occasional baby dribble wash off easily thanks to the removable cover. Breastfeeding moms will even find mombo handy for nursing.

InGenuity Cozy Coo Sway Seat ($119)
Slings are great, but as much as mothers love their babies, we don’t possess an infinite pool of strength. Swing Coo will sway your baby sound asleep for you. The swing includes nature sounds, a harmonious tune, a vibrating mechanism, and lateral motion. This mix of maternal craftsmanship is sure to facilitate your baby’s much deserved nap time.
Moby Wrap ($48)
Our ancestors have not only given us the wheel, but the art of baby carrying. Like the BabyBjörn carrier, the wrap provides another alternative to carrying your baby. Proven crucial for neurological development, the Moby Wrap not only keeps your baby close, but its specific design was engineered to mimic a mother’s arms. This covert sling can easily match your clothing (it comes in a plethora of colors) and is sure to turn a few heads.
Bright Starts InGenuity Washable Playard ($159)
While it’s great to have cribs, changing tables, or playpens, it’s even better to have an all-in-one playard. InGenuity brings the baby household essentials and crams them into this masterpiece, which will save you the hassle of having to run from room to room when you need your gear. Its accessibility makes this versatile device a must-have around the house.
What makes this product even greater is its ability to stow its own carry case for travel—after all, you can’t possibly carry a crib, changing table, and playpen everywhere you go. Want another bonus? It cleans in a breeze—simply toss it in the washer and you’re good to go.
Whether you’re inside or out, the sun’s rays are an inevitable part of our lives. Setting aside the sun’s generous dose of vitamin D, there’s also the harmful effects overexposure can have, especially on a baby’s sensitive skin.
The SnoozeShade protects your bundle of joy from dangerous solar radiation. This accessory latches on to almost every stroller, playard, car seat or crib and is a practical means of keeping bugs and mosquitos at bay. Most importantly, your little one will sleep throughout the day while you breeze through last minute assignments.
