If you're a mom who has a postal address, you probably rely on Amazon more than most other resources when it comes to stocking up or choosing baby gear. I'll admit I rely on Amazon's recommendations more than my mom friends — in large part because Amazon is available 24/7, whereas my mom friends regularly go to sleep at night and leave me with major baby gear decisions to make all on my own. I've been so relieved to be able to turn to these
baby products with near perfect reviews on Amazon when I'm trying to make a decision about which sippy cup or diaper brand to choose. If there's one thing better than a personal recommendation, it's a whole list of awesome reviews on Amazon.
Amazon has a really helpful function that allows you to sort by average customer review, which means you get to pick the top rated diaper bag based on the collective positive experience of a whole lot more people than you even know! If you have a question about a product, someone has probably already asked and answered it, so it's like you've crowd-sourced your research on the product before you even click the 'add to cart' button.
Whether you're hunting for the most popular burp cloths or the highest-rated teething ring, here are some of the best reviewed baby products on Amazon.
Pampers Swaddlers Diapers
Pampers Swaddles Diapers Giant Pack, $153 for 3 boxes, Amazon
You know you're going to fly through diapers, so you might as well suck it up and buy 450 of each size at a time. And if you're going to commit to that many nappies, you want the average review to be 4.7 stars.
Elephant sippy cup, $12, Amazon
If you have a kid who seems to envy every cup of coffee you drink, this mug will help them keep their paws off your caffeine. It's made of dishwasher-safe silicone and the mug even has an elephant tail!

HUGGIES Natural Care Unscented Baby Wipes
Babyletto Lolly 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Bed Conversion Kit
Babyletto Lolly 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Bed Conversion Kit, $399, Amazon
When it came time to buy our baby's crib, I was paralyzed by indecision. I found it much easier to decide which bottle brush to splash out $7 for than to hand over several hundred dollars for the place our baby would spend hours up on hours sleeping for years to come. Thank goodness for the good-hearted strangers on Amazon who helped me narrow it down to a few within my budget and style.
Triple Paste Medicated Ointment for Diaper Rash
Triple Paste Medicated Ointment for Diaper Rash, $28, Amazon
Like most moms, I didn't buy diaper ointment until my daughter had her first diaper rash and I was in a panic that she wouldn't possibly go down to sleep unless her little booty felt better. I ended up looking at reviews on Amazon and then running to the nearest store to pick up one with great reviews. When it worked, I bought the big tub on Amazon and it lasted until she was out of diapers.
Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen
Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, $17, Amazon
If ever there was a contentious topic I never imagined spending hours thinking about, baby sunscreen is it. After giving myself a headache researching the safest, best baby sunscreen, I finally said screw it and asked Amazon. There may never be a final verdict, but for now, 700 reviews is enough.
Chicco Keyfit Infant Car Seat
Chicco Keyfit Infant Car Seat, $195, Amazon
When it comes to buying a car seat, arguably one of the most important purchases for a baby, you'll obviously want to do your own research, but considering the Chicco Keyfit is one of the highest rated car seats with some of the best reviews on Amazon, you might be able to take their word for it.
Evenflo Feeding Premium Proflo Venting Balance Plus Wide Neck Newborn and Infant Bottles
Evenflo Feeding Premium Proflo Venting Balance Plus Wide Neck Bottles , $12 for set of 6, Amazon
Babies are finicky when it comes to bottles. Some babies don't give a hoot where their milk is flowing from, but others might make you order a dozen options from Amazon before they will drink without putting up a fuss. You may as well start with the bottles that get near perfect reviews to heighten your chances of the former happening.
Munchkin Miracle 360 Sippy Cup
Munchkin Miracle 360 Sippy Cup, $13 for two, Amazon
Sippy cups are a lot like bottles: babies can be very finicky with what they'll use. Totally useless sippy cups can easily stack up in your cupboard before you know it, so you want to choose wisely. Thankfully, 4,000 people have already had a lot of positive opinions about these adorable and colorful cups.
Philips Avent Freeflow Pacifier
Philips Avent Freeflow Pacifier, $7 for two, Amazon
My daughter would have given a perfect review of her Philips Avent pacifier until she was 16 if we'd let her. She loved that thing! Thankfully, a whole lot of parents love these pacifiers for their kids and have left reviews to help the rest of us decide between way too many options.
Safari Special Edition Video Baby Monitor

Not just a near-perfect review for this baby monitor, a perfect review. Over 500 5-star reviews for the Safari special edition video baby monitor. Can you believe it?

Nuby Nananubs Banana Massaging Toothbrush
Nuby Nananubs Banana Massaging Toothbrush, $5, Amazon
I bought this hilarious banana for my son without realizing it's one of the best reviewed baby toothbrushes on Amazon. I'm feeling sort of smug now, knowing that it gets an average of 4.8 stars. No wonder he loves the thing!
The First Years Stack Cups
The First Years Stack Cups, $4, Amazon
If these aren't a baby rite of passage, I don't know what is. And at $4, it's no wonder so many parents love them for their kids.

There's something reassuring about knowing that over 9,000 other parents have these songs floating around their heads all day long — and still managed to leave glowing reviews for the thing!
Happy Kid Essentials Ellie Bath Spout Cover
Summer Infant Multi-Use Deco Extra Tall Walk-Thru Gate
Tree Sheep White Noise Machine Sound Machine
Organic Muslin Swaddle Blankets
Organic muslin swaddle blankets, $22 for three, Amazon
You may think that all swaddles are created equal, but according to a whole lot of Amazon reviewers, you are wrong. These measure 47 inches square, which is a significant increase over other leading brands.
Boppy Newborn Lounger, $30, Amazon
It could be that most parents are so delirious in their first weeks of being a parent that they would rate anything that allowed their baby to be put down for a few minutes with 4.8 stars. Or it could be that the Boppy newborn lounger is the real deal and you need it on your registry, stat.
SUMGOTT Baby Nasal Aspirator

Safety 1st Cradle Cap Brush and Comb
Safety 1st Cradle Cap Brush and Comb, $5, Amazon
Your baby's cradle cap isn't exactly something you want to spend a lot of time talking about with your girlfriends. Instead, search Amazon at 2 a.m. when you can't sleep and this is what you'll end up with.
Teether rings, $15 for a set of four, Amazon
With reviews that tout the lightweight design and the vibrant colors, these 4.9 rated teethers need to get in your kid's drooly mouth ASAP.
BEBE Cookie Teethers & Gum Massagers
BEBE Cookie Teethers & Gum Massagers, $15 for two, Amazon
Now the only way I'd give these a higher rating is if they were the real deal and they came in a pack of 20 that was sitting on my desk right now. But for teethers, they're pretty darn cute
and highly rated. Check out Romper's new video series, Bearing The Motherload , where disagreeing parents from different sides of an issue sit down with a mediator and talk about how to support (and not judge) each other’s parenting perspectives. New episodes air Mondays on Facebook.
