Infant car seats fit small babies best, but they have a limited shelf life. Opt for a convertible car seat that can be used rear- or forward- facing from birth. The Evenflo Titan convertible car seat ($99; evenflo.com) gets high marks from safety experts and is a breeze to install...
Infantino's classy Style Rider carrier ($40; Target) offers extra lower-back support and handy pockets for your keys and wallet.
Offering a smooth ride, an easy, compact fold, and weighing in at just 17 pounds, the versatile Chicco Liteway stroller ($130; Buy Buy Baby) will navigate bumpy sidewalks and narrow store aisles. The seat fully reclines so your infant can snooze, and the removable basket doubles as a backpack.
We like that everything in the chic DwellStudio for Target Baby Bedding Collection ($11 - 35; target.com) is sold separately -- fitted sheets, changing pad cover, bed skirts, and more -- so you only need to buy what you know you'll use. (Skip the pricey comforter and bumper pads because they're SIDS hazards.)
What doesn't Tiny Love's Gymini Musical Kick & Discover activity gym ($70; toysrus.com) do? The playmat itself is loaded with fun toys and textures for your baby to explore, plus a kickpad that lights up and plays music with every swat. You can also use the kickpad as it's own toy or with the pillow for tummy time.
