Raising a child is one of those things you have to experience firsthand before you can fully grasp the satisfaction, joy, and — of course — the unimaginable energy and exhaustion it often entails. This is precisely why some of the most genius baby products were invented by moms. When it comes down to it, real parents have the everyday inspiration that comes from taking care of a baby or toddler. They've felt the desperation elicited from needing a certain product to fix a specific issue, but that product just doesn't yet exist.

Mothers know firsthand what it's like to have a child who won't sit still, a stroller that won't stop tipping over, and a pacifier that's been dragged along every inch of the mall floor. Consequently, some of the highest rated and bestselling products in the baby world have come from brilliant women who decided that enough was enough — it was time to design and bring to life these solutions on their own.

The best part? Since these inventions were all manufactured with mom and baby in mind, they're all smartly designed to incorporate safety, convenience, and style. Here are some of the most genius baby products created by moms who just get it, so you'll never wonder, "Why hasn't somebody invented that yet?" again.
