As any new parent knows, shopping for baby gear — or even setting up a registry! — can be completely overwhelming. Perhaps not as overwhelming as, say, staying up with a newborn ... but that fun part is yet to come!
As parents prepare for their little one, family members and friends will suggest "must-have" items ranging from the seemingly frivolous (wipe warmers?! For real?) to the chilling (SIDS monitors — gulp).
But, for all the diverse opinions about baby gear, there are two essentials that every parent must have: a good car seat, and a stroller that makes sense for their family's lifestyle. There are endless options in this domain, too, but one brand that parents can't stop raving about is Uppa Baby. (Seriously. Ask anyone you know who just had a baby. They'll light up!)
Items from brands like that don't come cheap, but leave it to Nordstrom to make them a bit more affordable. The retailer is having a massive sale on baby gear, and that includes a good selection of strollers and car seats for newborns and older babes alike.
Scroll down to see some of our top picks from the sale. And if you're not familiar with baby equipment and are just scoping for a friend's shower, here's a quick word of advice: stroller umbrellas are generally safest for babies four months and older, and car seats also accommodate different size munchkins. In the below selections, for example, the Maxi-Cosi Pria 70' car seat can hold babes of 9 pounds and up; the 85' model can hold babies starting at 14 pounds.
Oh, and if you ask us? No baby needs wipe warmers. Happy shopping!
