Our inboxes are flooded with the latest and greatest in new parenting products every day. From exciting new toys and clever innovations for baby to tools that help make raising kids just a little bit easier, our editors have selected some of their favourite launches this month.

1. Dr. Seuss x Billabong Collection

"The line of kids' clothes that came out of this collaboration between Billabong and Dr. Seuss—mostly sweats, tees, shirts and bathing suits—manages to be cool and cute, but not cutesy." — Kim Shiffman, Editor-in-Chief 

from $23,

2. Knix postpartum collection

"You know how your midsection feels completely like jello after you have a baby? I gifted the postpartum leak-proof undies from the Knix postpartum collection to two friends who just had their second kids. They’re high-waisted (which is good for C-section incisions), yet somehow manage to still be a little bit sexy and sporty? The supportive, velvety diagonal stripes help stabilize your core and hold everything together at a time when you kind of feel like your body is falling apart and leaking from multiple locations (the absorbent fabric on the crotch of the underwear helps with that). Speaking of leaks: Knix is also now making sleek nursing bras and nursing tanks (from $68) with removable, washable pads, as well as a hands-free pumping bra."—Ariel Brewster, Senior Editor


from $42,

3. The Diaper Genie Quick Caddy

“I can finally say goodbye to the revolting bag of diapers we carry with us on road trips. This pail keeps the odour sealed in, is easily transported by a sturdy carrying handle, and has an organizer to keep wipes in, freeing up space in our diaper bag for more charming things— like stray cheerios and noisy toys. All in all, a great travel companion!”—Amy Van Es, Deputy Editor


4. TrustyTrunks Leakproof, Waterproof, Sandproof, Diaper Covers for Swimming

"Whether you have a pool at home or just a simple garden hose, TrustyTrunks are a must-have for babies who love water play. This silicon diaper cover is leakproof, so water won't get in and uh-ohs won't get out. Plus, when we can finally hit the beach, they're great for keeping sand out, too!"—Kevin John Siazon, Assistant Editor

$34 US,

5. HBC x Sesame Street collection

"This summer, The Hudson's Bay Company is telling us how to get, how to get to Sesame Street. This adorable loungewear collection features Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird and the crew in iconic HBC stripes. The PJ sets are available for the whole family, but I'm hoping to pick up one of the adorable Cookie Monster sleep masks for my little one."—Simone Olivero, Senior Editor

from $15,  (available summer 2020)
