Your to-do list is never longer than when you learn you’re expecting a baby. And one of the trickier tasks is ensuring you have what you need for that transition into parenthood. With so many baby products on the market that claim to be essential, and with parents, often, having some financial stress breathing down their necks (raising a kid is expensive, it turns out!) narrowing down what’s worth budgeting for isn’t always easy. This is especially true for luxury baby products that carry large price tags.

So, how do you know which pricey baby product is worth the money? The truth is, babies don’t really need all that much. Certain products can make caring for a baby easier or more convenient, or that can ease your new-parent anxiety, but as long as you have a safe space for the baby to sleep and a way to feed them, you’re doing great.

If you’re able to spend extra money on certain key pieces, or you have generous friends and family and are building out your baby registry (or if you’re the generous friend, looking for the perfect gift for an expecting parent), there are certain items that most parents we speak to gush about, swearing that they’re worth their weight in gold. These 11 luxury baby products come up again and again in conversations about splurge-worthy baby gear. They may not be need-to-haves — but they’re nice-to-haves.
