The GRASS drying rack from TOMY holds just about everything from bottles to pacifiers. The flexible blades ensure each item dries and keeps the water completely contained. This is another great item for on-the-go travel.

3. Philips Avent My Bendy Straw Cup
These cups are amazing because they don’t leak, beverages don’t spew from the top, and you can buy the replacement straws. If your little one loves to chew on straws, you won’t need to replace the entire cup!
4. OXO Tot 2-in-1 Go Potty
Going out in public or taking a trip while in the middle of the potty training stage can be the worst. They don’t exactly give you much of a warning. We love the OXO Tot 2-in-1 Go Potty because it’s easy to store and opens quickly for potty emergencies. It can be used as a stand-alone potty or placed over public restroom toilets.

Steam and serve baby food with just one bowl. The Olababy silicone steam bowl retains nutrients when you warm baby’s puree. It’s heat safe for up to 428 degrees Fahrenheit and is dishwasher safe!

This might not be the cutest thing on the list, but trust us, it’s worth every penny.

The disposable filters are hygenic and prevents the transfer of germs.
