Every baby needs a bassinet to sleep in. It's a great alternative to a regular size crib when the baby needs to nap in another room or at grandma's house. This one holds babies up to 25 pounds, or when they first roll over. The ribbons are interchangeable from blue to pink making this bassinet gender neutral for longer use. The wicker baskets below are great for storing diapers, wipes, and blankets.

This gate might look a little old school, but there is a reason parents still use gates like this. They are sturdy and effective. This extra wide wire mesh gate is 32 inches high and fits openings from 29.5 inches to 50 inches wide. It is pressure mounted so there is no hardware to install or damage doorways. This gate is perfect for a space you don't use very much, such as a formal dining room, because there is no little gate for you to walk through. I'm sure you won't mind since it also keeps your little one away from your good china.

You know you're living in the 21st century when even your unborn child has a Twitter Account. Now, you can share the joy of your pregnancy with friends and relatives without ever picking up a phone. The expectant mom merely places the spandex belt across her belly and a combination of a Bluetooth, home computer and a Java application work together to analyze the baby's movements. Then an appropriate Twitter text message is sent based on what the sensors pick up. Grandma can receive messages like "I kicked Mommy today." Move over Lindsay Lohan and Lady Gaga, this baby will have tons of followers before you know it.
