Kids are a precious gift, a bundle of joy and boy are they cute! But if we're being completely honest here, they're also pretty expensive. (Who knew a human so tiny and innocent would need so much stuff?) To keep a little one fed, comfortable and entertained, it usually comes with a financial cost — but we've come across a sale or two that can help.
Amazon dropped its February Baby Sale, and these deals are bound to help any mom, dad or parental figure stock up on the essentials they literally can't function without. From hypoallergenic wipes to silent thermometers to affordable strollers, we found deals as high as 55% off — and these markdowns will be around the entire month! Not only that, but Buybuy Baby is also offering big markdowns on a variety of must-haves during its Big Deal Baby Sale.
We can't help you get the sleep (or alone time) you might be lacking, but we can help you find some good deals. Happy shopping!

They continued, "This Ruvalino diaper bag is my absolute favorite! We were gifted the same diaper bag (in blue) as a gift for my son about 4 years ago. We loved how much space the bag has and even the many MANY compartments/pockets of the diaper bag. The Ruvalino diaper bag is so versatile that my daughter bought the same bag (in black) to use as her school book bag. I bought the diaper bag (in gray) to use as my book bag for work. It’s awesome that it doesn’t shout 'I’M A DIAPER BAG!' and can be used for more than just diapers and bottles."
