The Best Full-Size High Chair

Between bites of pureed peas and finger foods, you'll scrub down your baby's high chair hundreds of times. Rather than tear your hair out, buy a chair that makes cleaning simple, while offering a safe and comfy seat for your little one.

The Best Play Yard (or Playard or Play Pen or Baby Jail)

Of the dozens of play yards on the market today, we think Graco's Pack 'n Play On The Go ($70; Amazon.com) is the best one out there. It's a simple play yard with practical features and a reasonable price from company known for inventing the packable portable crib.

The Best Baby Bottles

If I were in the market for a no-fuss baby bottle, I'd go with the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Bottle. ($24 for 3) It has minimal parts to wash (or lose!), the contoured shape makes it easy for older babies to hold, and—because it's plastic—there's no risk of shattering (as with glass versions). The bottle's wide… » 2/03/14 8:08pm 2/03/14 8:08pm
