Nice-To-Haves You Didn’t Think About:
These Power Gear Flex Safety Outlet Covers are a game changer for parents! The flexible duplex outlet cover can be removed one side at a time, allowing access to power from one outlet while the second outlet remains covered and protected. The clear covers are convenient and difficult to lose, perfect for toddlers who enjoy playing hide-and-seek. Discreet finger grooves on each end are easy for adults to operate yet challenging for children. And that's not it! These clear outlet covers will accommodate multiple rooms throughout your home or business!
Long Charging Cable
Don’t get stuck in the nursery with a dead phone or tablet and no way to charge it. An extra-long cable like this Cordinate 6ft. Charging Cable keeps your device fully charged and ready for use.
Power more at once with our Philips Outlet Extenders. Create a centralized location for powering a room’s worth of electronics, lights, nursery decorations, and more!
There’s no need to strain to reach switches in tight spaces or move furniture to access outlets. Simply connect your lamps, sound machines, humidifiers, and more to our Cordinate Tabletop Switch — extending an ON/OFF power button up to 6ft.
Whether you want to match your lights to the color of your baby’s room or adjust them for a warm, less-harsh glow, UltraPro Smart Bulbs are the perfect product! Connect the smart bulb to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network to control and schedule lamps, wall and accent lighting, or other fixtures. The easy-to-use UltraPro app with hassle-free pairing options is available on the Apple App Store and on Google Play. Direct compatibility with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant allows convenient voice commands without a hub.
Motion-Sensing Night Light
Lights By Night Mini Motion-Sensing LED Night Lights are the perfect addition for those late-night moments with your new baby. This high-quality night light provides light when you need it the most and is ideal for any room in your home. This night light automatically turns on when movement is detected within 25ft. It is also cost-effective without sacrificing quality — turning off after 90 seconds of inactivity.
These items aren’t entirely necessary, but they will make your life so much easier. When it comes to being a new parent, why not take any easy route given to you?
