Baby registry

20 black and white baby products

Welcoming a baby doesn’t mean your home has to look like a daycare. Check out these on-trend black and white baby products for nursery inspiration.

What’s black and white and monochrome? This year’s biggest baby-gear trend, that’s what. Perhaps to the relief of modern-décor-obsessed parents, baby product designers are replacing the bright and garish look of yesteryear with sleeker, simpler options for the nursery. You can now get a classic black-and-white bouncer chair or Rock ‘n Play that blends in with your living room, instead of one covered in red and brown monkey faces (just for example). Maybe you want to forego the enormous plastic Exersaucer with a million attachments and splurge on a more minimalist baby activity centre that could pass as a side table in a high-end condo.

There’s also an added benefit for your little one: newborns only see in black, white and grey for the first few weeks. These bold, geometric patterns with lots of contrast will stimulate their visual development.

If you gravitate toward neutral basics instead of all things loud and multicoloured, this roundup of black and white baby products is for you.
