20 Parenting Products So Effective Reviewers Called Them A “Miracle”

1.Bob Books, Set 1: Beginning Readers created by a preschool teacher for kiddos taking their very first steps into reading. The stories start with simple three-letter words and gradually build in difficulty so readers can take that leap from sounding out words to be able to confidently say, “I read the whole book!”

2.And a detangling brush that'll glide through knots to turn your kiddo's daily hair-brushing ordeal into a painless experience minus the *ouchies or tears* (for both of you). Just trust the 39,000+ people who gave it a 5-star review.

3.A set of starter spoons ingeniously designed to encourage your babe to self feed. These have crevices that purees and mashed foods stick to easily, letting little ones dip and explore exciting new flavors all on their own.

The set includes a stage one spoon and stage two spoon. The first stage spoon doubles as a teether, and is designed to introduce babies to holding utensils and exploring purees, as they soothe their sore gums. The second stage spoon is capable of holding more food and can even be loaded with solids for the child to grab and eat.

Note: The spoons don't have a stopper, so please supervise your babies to make sure they don't stick the spoon too far back in their mouth. Recommended for ages 6 months+.

Promising review: "I'm sorry, but these are the most brilliant things, ever. They totally work as described. They were a miracle for my developmentally delayed son!" —Beth

Get a set from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in three colors and packs of two, four, or six spoons).

4.The Ollie Swaddle to make bedtime less of a struggle. It wraps snugly to prevent your lil escape artist from breaking out and boasts an opening at the bottom to make diaper changes a breeze. The best part? Moisture wicking fabric to prevent overheating.

8.The Pink Stuff, a magical all-purpose cleaning paste so you don't need to go into full panic mode when lipstick (or Sharpie) marks mysteriously appear on your walls. (Good luck keeping the little Picassos out of your makeup bag though!)
