The following is a look at five trends in baby gear. The trends change every year, but the one thing that is not changing is that babies need a lot of stuff.
Chairs: It used to be that babies needed a bouncer chair, a high chair, and that was about it. Today there is the Bumbo, which is a chair designed for kids ages 3-6 months. It is formed to fit a baby’s contours and be extremely supportive of them. There are more elaborate bouncy chairs and high chairs that grow with your child. However, in addition to that one of the big trends is sling chairs. Instead of a sling that you wear that your baby sits in, it is a sling that goes around a chair and supports your baby so that they can sit no matter where you are as long as there is a chair around.
