Earlier this month, the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas showcased the hottest new electronics to look out for in 2015.

The editors at BabyCenter, a pregnancy and parenting digital website, attended and found gadgets and gizmos parents won't want to live without. Take a look:

SleepIQ Kids Smart Bed: Do your kids constantly get out of bed throughout the night? If so, you can now track them. This smart mattress tilts up for reading or stuffy noses, and features a sensor to track when kids get out of bed. Parents can download an app to be alerted of unexpected risings. The app also comes with a Monster Detector that may comfort anxious kids.

Pacif-i Smart Pacifier: The Pacif-i connects to an app and transmits baby’s temperature, according to BabyCenter. The app also has a medication tracker, a temperature graph that can be shared with doctors, an alert that can be set to notify parents when babies wander a specified distance away and a “find me” buzzer in case the pacifier is misplaced.

TempTraq: The TempTraq system continuously monitors a child’s temperature, sending data to connected smartphones, with an alert that pops up for temperature spikes. Parents can record when children eat, drink or take medicine, and share a sick child’s temperature history with a doctor.

Baby Glgl: With a plastic sheath that fits over any baby bottle, Baby Glgl monitors a baby’s feeding patterns, sending data on volume consumed and feeding duration to smartphones, reports BabyCenter. A built-in inclinometer calculates the best angle to reduce gas-causing air bubbles.
Grush: This Bluetooth-equipped toothbrush acts like a video game controller. According to BabyCenter, with visuals displayed on a connected smartphone, users pretend they’re chasing away tooth monsters, conducting an orchestra, or grooming a pet as they brush. The system praises users for solid brushing technique, and allows parents to monitor tooth time.
