This classic toy is one of the first balls your infant will be able to grasp and play with—possibly even when she’s only a few months old. Watch her puzzle over the patterns and colours and proudly pinch and fling it. (Editors’ note: Check to make sure your O-ball was not part of a March 2017 recall. Almost 700,000 of the design with the beads—the rattle ball toy version, not pictured—have been recalled because the clear plastic disc on the outside of the ball can break, posing a choking hazard. For more info and the recalled model numbers, click here.) Bonus: if you manage not to lose this toy under the couch/in the park/in the back of your car, your little one will still be tossing it around as a ball or using it as a bath toy as a toddler. $8,

OxiClean Baby Stain Remover

Nope, it’s not cute or glamourous, but this product is a pragmatic, thoughtful shower gift for new moms. The reality is, between naps and feedings and coffee-shop outings, you will be spending a significant portion of your mat leave scrubbing spit-up and poop stains out of onesies and sleepers, especially in the first few months. This stain remover does the trick. $6,

Boogie Wipes

Why can’t you just use a regular old tissue, you ask? Well, you can. But if your little tyke has a cold or runny nose straight through from October to March, their sensitive skin can get red, chapped and shellacked with snot. The saline in Boogie Wipes helps clear stuffed-up nostrils when your baby’s too young to know how to blow his own nose, and the soft wipe is soothing and gentle. $5,

Sudocrem Twin Pack

Truth: you’re gonna be wiping butts, changing diapers and slathering on the diaper cream for many, many months. (Years, even.) Buy the biggest, bulk size of this zinc-oxide based barrier cream for your change table station, but these mini pots are great for travel or for stashing in your diaper bag, purse, or stroller organizer. You never know when a rash will rear up. (See what we did there?) $8,

Bumkins Pacifier Clips

If your baby likes soothers (some are passionate paci-protestors, no matter how many different brands you try) these clips will save you from fretting over every dropped binkie. While a little dirt can be good for a baby (science says so!), the pacifier clip is especially great for extra-germy places like planes, playgrounds and doctor’s offices. $7 for two,

Lansinoh Lanolin Nipple Cream

This product is technically for mums, of course, but a breastfed baby directly benefits from happy nipples. When the going gets tough, even the toughest ladies among us need some soothing nipple TLC. $10,
