Remember when wipe warmers, electric baby mobiles and diaper genies were considered ground breaking? Maybe not for all parents-to-beâ€”like those who just knew theyâ€™d see the day when their bundle of joy would be a tech-toting babe before the sand boxâ€“but many who are greatly impressed by the latest baby care essentials. However, they come at a large price tag.
Whether youâ€™re a tech-savvy mom or dad (or not), Mashable pinpointed eight over-the-top baby gadgets that both parents and new baby can enjoy:
The smartphone-enabled ultrasound machine lets parents take a peek at baby-to-be whenever they want. Mobisante is designed for medical professionals, but those who can foot the bill for $7,400 can get their hands on one.
Bet you didnâ€™t know your baby could tweet or send texts from the womb! The Kickbee, which is an elastic band embedded with vibration sensors, automatically posts to Twitter or deploys a text message when the baby moves or kicks.
Why bathe baby in the kitchen sink when you can get a mini whirlpool for your bundle of joy. The luxurious baby bath comes equipped with whirlpool jets, a built-in digital thermometer and LED lights, among other relaxing features. Itâ€™ll cost new parents $2,600.
