#1 Precision Pro Digital Food Thermometer

The Precision Pro Digital Food Thermometer does more than you ever imagined. Not only does it instantly check the temperature of your dinner, but it’s also useful for many baby-related tasks. When warming baby formula or reheating expressed breastmilk, it should be a bit below body temperature (98.6 F). Simply place the food thermometer directly into the milk or formula, and you’ll have an accurate readout within five seconds. Food thermometers can also be used to test the temperature of bath water. Babies should be bathed in temperatures around 100° F. Price: $14.95 on Amazon

#2 Travelwise 5-Piece Packing Cube System

The TravelWise 5 Piece Packing Cubes are a travel essential that allow clothes to stay folded and neat when packed in their own "small drawers". Constructed of lightweight, durable nylon, these multi-sized cubes allow mom to compartmentalize similar items such as her clothes, her husband’s clothes, the baby’s clothes, and electronic accessories to streamline packing. The open mesh top makes searching for misplaced items a thing of the past and our five color choices allows each mom, dad and baby to have their own individual set. Price: $24.95 on Amazon

#3 Precision Tracker Digital Bathroom Scale

The Precision Tracker Digital Bathroom Scale will track mom’s weight during pregnancy and her subsequent weight loss after delivery. The typical weight gain ranges from 20 to 50 pounds, and this scale makes it easy to track weight gain during pregnancy. This handy dandy scale allows her to monitor her health at-home. At each weigh in, the scale will display three readings: current weight, weight change from the last weigh in, and total change from starting weight. A healthy weight gain equals a healthy baby and quicker recovery after birth. When she’s ready to lose the baby weight, the Tracker will track her progress as she sheds the extra pounds. Price: $24.95 on Amazon

#4 Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scaleeatsmart-precision-pro-baby-food-measurement

Once the baby starts eating solid foods, the Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale takes the guesswork out serving sizes.

It’s also a handy tool to help mom with calorie counting and portion control.

Price: $19.95 on Amazon

#5 Precision Voyager Digital Luggage Scale

The Precision Voyager Digital Luggage Scale makes a great stocking stuffer for new moms who are planning to fly anywhere this holiday season and beyond. Price: $12.95 on Amazon

Being aware of body composition is an important way to monitor your health, and as any fit mama knows, health is more than a number. Price: $44.95 on Amazon
