Babies need a variety of dresses to suit different seasons and occasions; let’s look at some of the latest trends in apparel for baby.
Boppy: A Boppy is a pillow that supports the baby when mom nurses and later supports the baby as it learns to sit on its own. One can buy a pillow, and cover it in different colors and patterns.
Gender-specific gear: Pink and blue are passé now, but buying a car seat with a specific theme is more popular than something that suits both genders. People are buying durable stuff which can work for both genders for different purposes.
Strollers: The new trend is buying jogging strollers with large wheels that make them easy to push and steer while running, and those that are foldable to carry easily in a vehicle, in a trunk and on a plane.
Accessories: Accessories like bracelets and hair bows for baby girls, to pacifier holders, designer pacifiers, and personalized sipper cups/bottles for both boys and girls are the most popular. Apart from cribs, car seats, and strollers, cup holders that hang on the stroller handle bars, feet warmers in car seat, and mobiles on the crib are a rage.
Fashion trends: When it comes to fashion apparel, babies do not lag behind. The craze is to dress a child like a mini-adult, adorning them with pea coats, designer jeans, and shoes.
Baby food-makers: Health conscious parents are moving away from processed and preserved food and are now turning organic for the well-being of their kids. There are a wide range of food makers in the market—some hand operated, and some plug-ins which chop, dice, and mash. They help the children get fresh and wholesome food.

Rhinestones: These are artificial gems made from paste, glass or faux quartz. Apparel baby stuff like pacifiers, baby shirts, jeans, jackets, baby sunglasses and encrusted diaper bags are available with rhinestones.
Wipe warmers: Wipe warmers are a big trend in baby gear with the best kind having a switch that can be turned off and on. During the night, or when you leave your house, you do not have to warm up the wipes and dry them out.
Purse/diaper bags: Super ugly baby bags have given way to trendy oversized purses.
Covers: While taking babies out in public, they need to be protected from germs. Now covers akin to a slip cover for a couch are now used for shopping carts, high chairs and changing pads. They are washable and are available in different patterns or colors.
Travel systems: Travel units that combine a stroller, a car seat and a diaper bag are now popular.
Changing mats: These usually fit in a standard diaper bag, can be taken out to change diapers, then folded and stored when done, as all places where a baby needs a diaper change are not clean.
Lilly pads: These reusable nursing pads for the breastfeeding mother not only prevent leaks, but also stop them. They stick to the breast, and when the nipples are inverted the milk does not flow into them.
