"Back when I was your age, I didn't have this 'Amazon Prime' to turn to when the family needed things!" Surely someone reading that sentence has heard their parents say something along these lines. Back then, any consumer packaged good was normally purchased in a brick-and-mortar store. This required someone getting in a car or walking to the nearest store -- taking time out of their day to complete the errand. Ah, the inconvenience. Now, these brick and mortars are going out of business, and generally having a hard time keeping up with the overhead of maintaining stores, warehouses, employees, and to accommodate delivery opportunities.

Enter: Amazon. The kingpin. Amazon is the largest e-commerce site in the world. What started as just an online bookstore, Amazon quickly expanded its portfolio to include videos, software, clothes, shoes, furniture, electronics, and so on. With Amazon, not only could someone order literally anything they wanted, but it was also to be delivered to their doorstep with absolutely no hassle. This opportunity ended the need to go to the store to get something and it also let people order what they need from one location and not multiple stores. The introduction of Amazon Prime in 2005 was a complete game-changer. For an annual fee, Amazon Prime subscribers could order -- again -- literally anything and get it on their doorstep in two days. (Some places even offer one-day delivery service.) For parents, this is a lifesaver. Life is simply too busy these days to find the time to head to the store to get something that's needed quickly. 

With that, here's a fun list of 20 things parents should Prime right this minute.

  • Legendairy Milk

    1

    While fed is always best, the choice to breastfeed a newborn comes with its own (amazing) ups and (stressful) downs. Painful nipples, issues with latching, and lack of supply can really bring a new mom down. A lactation supplement like Legendairy Milk, can help produce more milk to boost supply. 

  • Fresh Monster 

    2
    Fresh Monster is a line of safe, natural, and toxin-free hair care items for kids. The brand, created by two moms, recently launched a Strawberry Smoothie Conditioner to tame kids' manes, leaving hair soft, silky, and tangle-free.
  • Wyze Cam

    3
    If parents could have eyes in the backs of their heads, life might be easier. But they don't, obviously. But the Wyze Cam certainly comes in handy. The smart home camera can be set up anywhere there's Wi-Fi. Parents can pull up a livestream view day or night and know exactly what's going on at home at any given moment. This is great for naps and bedtime, to watch a caregiver when parents aren't home, or check in on how an older child is behaving (is he actually doing his homework?!).
  • Regalo Safety Gates

    4

    Regalo is a family-owned brand that makes convenient products for any family. Its safety gates, a must for anyone who has children, are extremely easy-to-use and versatile. This model is one of few on the market that extends to 192 inches.

  • Snooz

    5
    White noise has been proven to calm babies down and make them feel cozy and comfortable while they sleep. This is because it mimics that "whooshing" sound they heard in the womb. Snooz is a white noise machine that creates a natural and comforting sound with customizable levels. The Snooz app lets parents control volume and turn it on or off without disturbing baby.
  • 'The Ultimate New Mom's Cookbook'

    6

    Navigating through the journey of prenatal nutrition, food introductions for babies, and recipes that work for picky eaters is a fete in itself. The Ultimate New Mom's Cookbook is a must-have resource and provides a starting point for new parents.

  • ZUS Smart Backup Camera

    7

    When there's a house full of toys inside, chances are that same house has a lot of toys outside, too. Parents can never be too safe when pulling out of their driveway. Nonda's ZUS Wireless Backup Camera is a great tool to have and use. Safety first!

  • Emergency Stain Rescue

    8

    Carrying around an extra set of clothes is a must for any parent of a young baby. OK, maybe even up into the toddler stage. Kids are always getting dirty, dropping food all over themselves, and are generally super messy. Emergency Stain Rescue does exactly what one would think: removes stains in a pinch. The on-the-spot stain remover works on berries, makeup, and even wine (for the mamas, of course!).

  • BuddyPhones

The Coway Tower is an air purifier that's specifically designed for small rooms. It cleans the air of dust, pet dander, pollen, and harmful allergens.
  • Amazon Echo

    We're suggesting placing an order for an Amazon Echo off of Amazon Prime -- how meta! But it's with good reason. Every parent needs help, and Alexa brings that. Alexa reads the news, checks weather, sets alarms, plays music for a family dance party, and even keeps grocery lists for the next round of food shopping.
