Even though there are more useful baby products out on the market than ever before, it sometimes can seem harder and harder to find gifts and items for parents and babies that are convenient and promote safety. There are those that have become almost a requirement when you have a child, and others that are nice, but not a necessity. From items for feeding time to gear for traveling, the world of baby products is full of inventive and useful gadgets and equipment.
Parents who have children and especially infants worry very much about germs. There have been many recommendations over the years for sterilizing bottles to washing clothing to sanitizing toys. It can be extremely difficult to properly clean pacifiers, nipples, bottles, and toys adequately, and of course it is impossible to tell if the item you have washed really is germ free.
Fortunately there are automatic sanitizers that kill more than 99% of germs that can attach to baby items in only about 30 minutes. There are no chemicals involved with these nifty gadgets, and popular ones only use dry heat for sterilization. They wont shrink fabrics or materials and will not distort or melt plastic or rubber. Some of the germs that these sanitizers destroy are those that can cause RSV, colds and influenza, pneumonia, ear infections, and they also kill E. coli and salmonella as well. The dry heat can reach temperatures of up to 170 degrees, many have automatic shut off mechanisms, and all you have to do is place objects in the container, secure the lid, and push a button.
Other popular baby products to use or give as shower gifts are covers that protect infants from the sun. There are protective covers that can go right over a playpen or stroller that lets children still see through them, they allow parents to still be able to see the child, but the UVA and UVB rays of the sun are blocked. They are also popular even when the sun is not out strong because they can keep insects from biting or stinging babies, too. The covers are very airy and breathable, not hot or stuffy, and they are cool enough and lightweight enough to use during the hottest summer months.
