Best Multi-Function Baby Gear Products

It seems as though baby product manufacturers are more tuned in on the trend of less is more. Everything is coming out more compact and portable now and baby gear is no exception. There are several items that I love which are really great space savers as opposed to some of the older, bulky models. These are some of the best top picks in multi-function baby gear that will save you space and money.

2-in-1 Swings

A swing is practically a necessity for babies because they love to rock. It was my saving grace for our son who was very colicky when he was younger. In fact, I still use it to this day when he’s teething or just having a rough night from a cold. I’ll use it until he reaches the maximum weight limit on it! I have come across two particular types of swings that I thought were really neat. I wish I would have owned one of these when we were living in a smaller place than where we live now. These are great for saving space and money!

This product combines a swing and baby seat into one. In swing mode, it rocks and lulls baby to sleep. Then you can lock it into place for the seat mode when baby is awake and wants to play or for feeding. It also has vibration features for soothing your baby. The compact design also makes it easily portable. {Read reviews}

This baby swing combines a swing and rocker into one. Basically it’s a rocker that sits in a frame to be used in swing mode. Then it can be easily removed from the frame to use as an infant rocker. The rocker is easily portable and can be moved from room to room or on trips. It features cute little characters that hang to entertain your baby and holds infants up to 25 lbs. {Read reviews}

Multi-Stage High Chairs

Not all of us have nice roomy kitchens. For those of use who are a little cramped for space, there is an easy solution for mealtimes with a baby. And yes, it has more than one use!

This particular item has been a big seller and a favorite among moms. This is most likely because moms love the idea that you can strap it onto a regular chair and sit baby at the table with you. It has multiple reclining positions for younger babies to an upright position then converts to a booster seat for toddlers. We have one and I know 3 of my other mom friends who also use these high chairs. I absolutely love it! {Read reviews}

This is a must-have multi-function baby gear item if you have (or plan on having) more than one child who are relatively close in age. It grows with your child transitioning from a standard high chair to a booster seat to a youth seat. It allows you to seat two children at the same time. It seats infants to toddlers up to three years in age! With space-saving features and wheels to make it easier to move without damaging floors, this high chair provides optimal versatility. {Read reviews}

Play Yards

A play yard is a really useful item to have for babies. Most play yards are already multi-functional serving as a portable sleeping option for babies as well as a safe place for them to play. These two options mentioned here offer many features to enhance its functionality.

Here is a great option for those who like to keep baby nearby at bedtime. This play yard features a unique co-sleeper that fastens securely to your bed so you can have your baby within arm’s reach (also a convenient feature with nursing moms for nighttime feedings). The co-sleeper is also great for travel as it can be used self-standing on its own. The play yard also features a full-sized bassinet for naps and a changer that easily flips away when not in use. If that’s not enough for you, this play yard also includes a music center with a built-in night light and vibrations.

The Pack N’ Play is definitely one of the most popular brands in play yards. This one features a newborn napper that cradles newborns while they sleep cozily with a canopy and also features a changer for quick and easy diaper changes. As your baby grows you can use the full-sized bassinet option for nap times. When your baby reaches early toddlerhood, use the play yard for a safe place to play. I have one similar to this and I got a lot of use out of it with both children. {Read reviews}
As a mother of two it really helps to have multi-function baby gear that grows with them and can be used for multiple purposes. This is especially helpful when you are moving, so if you’re expecting and plan to relocate at some point during your baby’s infancy these are really great products to consider. I hope you found these helpful and you can also head on over to My All-Time Favorite Baby Products list to check out more useful baby products that I recommend.


  1. If i do have the only one choice than i definitely go with the 2-in-1 Swing & Rocker as its very much useful in many ways compare to other products.
