In January 2024 we put out a survey asking parent readers of Cubby, Apartment Therapy, and The Kitchn to share their most trusted, must-have nursery and baby gear with us. We received over 1,000 responses from parents eager to tell us about the nursery products they actually used and loved, from which bedside sleeper was worth the money to the baby bouncer they bought in multiples. We asked parents to weigh in on the best crib, crib mattress, nursery glider, diaper pail, changing pad, humidifier, sound machine, baby monitor, baby activity gym, baby bathtub, high chair, travel crib, and nursery storage essentials — and our editors even voted on the cutest nursery decor items

In the end, we came away with a stellar list of parent-tested and parent-approved nursery essentials to make nesting just a little bit easier.
