It was another night of me and a basket of laundry to fold. As I marathoned my way through the latest home organization show, I couldn’t help but think about how I could make my own life as streamlined as possible — especially when it comes to the endless piles of kid stuff collecting all over my home.

I decided that step one would be to think ahead to what products myself and my family should have at the ready as we move into fall. Swapping tees and tanks out for sweaters and fleece is a great place to start, but what about all the other stuff we'll need so we can enjoy a happy, healthy autumn?

Especially for moms of babies, these seasonal transitions can feel like a whirlwind. Luckily, Romper and Target have teamed up to make your fall shopping super simple. From the tried and true classics to some brand-new favorites, we’ve got you covered.


Dr. Talbot's Infrared Thermometer

Now more than ever, moms need a quick, no fuss ways to monitor baby’s temperature. This thermometer is great for babies 3 months and older because it doesn’t even require skin contact. You know what that means? You can even take baby’s temperature while they’re sleeping. Give yourself a (quiet) high-five, mama!


Fridababy NoseFrida Nasal Aspirator

When my babies had colds, all I wanted to do was make them more comfortable. This nasal aspirator is pediatrician-recommended to help clear baby’s nose easily. It’s comfortable for baby and is dishwasher safe to keep everything hygienic. (Plus, it’s not nearly as gross as you think.)


Infant Optics Video Baby Monitor DXR-8

Watching your baby sleep is great, until you accidentally wake them up. This monitor is a parent favorite because it's portable, lightweight, and gives you full control of what you see. With the ability to zoom in, you can get a closer look without even opening that creaky door.


Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment

Diaper rash? Chapped lips? A tiny cut? Aquaphor helps — for real. A diaper bag essential, this ointment is the most recommended by pediatricians because it’s gentle on a baby's skin, but works hard to heal and keep them healthy. The 14 oz. jar is a great value, and you'll want to keep this five-star ointment handy, because I promise you’ll be reaching for it again and again.


Fisher-Price Quilted Harper Frame Bag

There’s nothing worse than trying to calm a baby while you rifle through a diaper bag to find what you need. This diaper bag has room for all the essentials like bottles, diapers, and wipes, plus zippered pockets for your phone and cash. The best part is the sturdy bottom feet that help the bag stand upright and the built-in wire-frame that holds the bag open when you’re looking for what you need.


Baby Delight Snuggle Nest Dream Portable Infant Sleeper

When babies have a cold or it’s just a chilly night, it’s nice to keep them close by. This portable sleeper is a great option for co-sleeping safely. It also folds up, making it a great option when you’re visiting grandma.


Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Sling 'n Seat Tub

There’s nothing better than giving your baby that warm bath at the end of a chilly fall day. This tub is great because it grows with the baby, making it one piece of equipment that will last you years. From the sling for those infant days to a tub perfect for toddler baths, you and baby will feel secure growing (and splashing) with this tub!


The Honest Company Truly Calming Shampoo & Body Wash

Some days we all need a calming nighttime bath, and this tear-free shampoo and wash helps bath time stay peaceful. Made with essential oils and no fragrances, The Honest Company is cruelty-free and doesn't use any animal byproducts.


Johnson's Head-To-Toe Baby Lotion

Soft baby skin is the best feeling, until the cooler weather comes and their skin starts getting dry and chapped. Johnson’s lotions have been a staple for keeping baby skin soft for generations. The pump makes it easy to use with one hand, and the formula is gentle enough for your whole family.


Infantino Flip 4-In-1 Convertible Carrier

Whether I was headed out for a doctor's appointment or enjoying a fall day of apple picking, I loved using a baby carrier. It helps free up your hands while still keeping your little on cozy. Plus, this convertible carrier grows with your baby, shifting from multiple positions like facing in, facing out, and even wearing on your back.


Hopefully, these products help you feel more prepared for the new season with your baby. Now it’s time to enjoy the cooler days, the cozier nights, and all those adorable baby snuggles!
