2018 Baby Gear Trends You Won’t Want to Miss

If you’re on the hunt for baby gear this year, this list is for you! Now that 2018 is in full-swing, we can tell that these trends are going to define this year’s baby gear and we have to admit, we’re pretty pleased with what we’re seeing out there. Take a peek at some of these baby gear and style trends as you’re out shopping for your new arrival!
 
A Touch of Metallics
A trend that has been holding strong for a couple of years now, we’re still seeing little pops of metallics making their way onto strollers and more. For 2018, the metallics are showing their softer sides with muted rose gold accents and brushed gold touches that will make this trend into a classic. 
 
Take Us to the Tropics
Maybe it’s because moms are always dreaming of taking a tropical vacation or maybe it’s those bold green tones that they can’t resist. Either way, tropical prints are making a big impact in 2018 in both nursery decor and baby gear style. The best part about this trend is that it’s a gender-neutral dream come true!
 
Two-Toned Natural Style
A trend that’s starting to develop this year, especially when it comes to cribs, is two-toned design. In particular, we’re seeing natural woods and finished mixed with bright whites and even black, all on one piece of gear or nursery furniture for a statement piece in an instant. 
 
Baby Bags That Go Beyond Baby
We all know that baby bags are really for moms, right? There’s no denying that we’re seeing more and more diaper bags that look nothing like a diaper bag and the new 2018 styles are proving it. Don’t worry, new moms. These bags offer all the bells and whistles you need for hauling your baby’s diaper necessities around, but nobody will ever know!
