As a mom of four kids all born within three years of one another, I’ve become a more savvy shopper by hitting up sales like Amazon February Baby Sale—happening right now. Babies may be tiny little humans, but they sure do need a lot of stuff. Trust me, the costs add up quickly. But you don’t have to sacrifice your weekly mani just to feed your child’s pouch addiction. You can score everything from breast- and bottle-feeding essentials to personal care items and diaper pail liners to high chairs and car seats. Oh yeah, and all of those snack pouches they’ll finish before you can blink. With some of the best deals as much as 44% off, there’s no time like the present to shop.
Any parent who’s ever crafted a baby shower registry can attest: gear, gear, and more gear. Not to mention, there are some things you’ll be buying for years to come: diapers, wipes, shampoo, OTC medication, snacks…oh, the snacks! (“Mooom, more!”). Over the years I’ve bought the things my little ones need for less by perusing second-hand stores for the best baby clothing brands, but right now you can save big on highly sought-after baby items.

Baby feeding essentials deals
Padding your freezer supply lends so much freedom to new moms, but buying those expensive storage bags is such a drag. Scoop them up for more than 40% off during the Amazon February Baby Sale.
When my kids were in the pouch stage, I was constantly doing the math to see which brands gave me the most bang for my buck. Right now, you can’t beat this deal from Plum Organics, which scores you a dozen pouches for just about $1 each.
You can never have too many baby bottles, especially if you’re formula-feeding. They’re constantly going missing, and nobody wants to get caught in that precarious midnight situation in which they have to wash a bottle because there aren’t any clean ones while baby screams in hunger.
I learned pretty early on that your standard bib doesn’t do much to keep your kiddo’s OOTD clean. Babies are constantly lifting the bib up, tugging it off, and just flat out dipping their sleeves in their food. These shirt-style bibs were outfit-savers for my family. Plus, they’re great for toddler arts and crafts, too.
PSA: Any product that converts into something else your little one can use later is a total home-run. This high chair converts to a stool that can pull right up to the dining table once your child is older and more stable.
You might already have a changing mat, but here’s your sign to buy a second one for the living room. Yep, I said it: If you live in a two-story home, you don’t have to hike it upstairs just for a diaper change.
It’s a white noise machine, night light, and soothing light show all in one—and it’s the perfect addition to baby’s nursery. My kids all started drifting off to sleep on their own once we added projectors to their rooms.
If you’re thinking about transitioning your toddler to a big-kid bed, consider this your sign. This pint-sized bed, offered at 25% off, is the perfect size for your little one. It’s also Greenguard-certified, which means it’s a nontoxic option to boot.
You’re going to need a mattress for that bed (especially if you’re saving the crib mattress for a younger sibling on the way), and this organic and hypoallergenic option is currently 24% off. I love that it’s waterproof and has a washable cover—perfect for the potty training days in your immediate future.
Gliders are nice to have for midnight feeds and storytime as baby gets older, but they’re undoubtedly expensive—and they don’t go on sale often. Right now you can save $80 on this model, which swivels, rocks, reclines, and even has a built-in USB port to power up your device in a pinch.
If you don’t have a monitor—or need a second one—there’s no time like the present. One of the most popular models on the market is 15% off during the Amazon February Baby Sale. That’s nothing to scoff at, either. It’ll save you $60 on the pricey item.
Baby accessories and entertainment deals
I loved the lovey-paci combos for my kids, because they were easy to spot if they ever dropped (a very frequent occurrence). And trust me: You don’t want to lose these things. Not only because they’re expensive, but also because kids become seriously attached to their favorites. This brand is great, because the pacifier detaches from the lovey for easy cleaning. Stock up while they’re more than 20% off.
Do you want to cook dinner in peace? Maybe find a split second to fold the laundry? A baby activity center is the answer, and this one is more than 30% off right now.
During the Amazon February Baby Sale, one of the top toy brands for babies—Baby Einstein—is offering huge discounts on its products. One of the best we peeped? This light-up musical toy bar is a whopping 44% off.
A learning tower is a really fun piece of furniture for toddlers, since it allows them to (safely, with supervision) get up close and personal to whatever’s happening in the kitchen. We used ours for everything from arts and crafts to “helping” with dinner (i.e., snacking on the carrots I was chopping, mostly).
Baby travel gear deals
We may be in the depths of a gloomy, cold winter in much of the country at the moment, but spring is coming, so be prepared for that first warm day with a brand-new jogging stroller.
So many of my friends swear by this travel crib for good reason: It is ultralightweight (a rarity for these things!), is easy to unfold and fold (also hard to come by), and has backpack straps for maximum portability (unheard of!).
Remember what I said about those two-in-one products? Well, this is a four-in-one. It can be used from birth through age 10 (seriously!). Use it as a rear-facing infant car seat, a rear-facing toddler car seat, a forward-facing five-point harness car seat, and a forward-facing high-back booster seat. And right now you’ll get $50 off, instantly upping the overall value.
Diapering and personal care deals
When you have a dirty diaper in hand, you really don’t want to have to walk to the other side of the house just to pop it into the dedicated diaper bin. So why not pick up a second while it’s 15% off?
I’ve talked to a lot of dermatologists about personal care products for both babies and adults, and Cetaphil is a brand they’re constantly recommending for sensitive skin. Scoop it up while it’s on sale right now.
Save yourself money now by adding a swim diaper to your cart during the Amazon February Baby Sale. Disposable swimmies are absurdly expensive when you calculate the per-unit cost and if you add up how many you’ll need throughout an entire summer. Trust me when I say: The small hassle of washing a dirty (parents, you know what I mean by that) reusable swim diaper is well worth it.
