If you've ever stood in your cluttered living room flabbergasted at how a tiny human being could require so much stuff, then you, my friend, are a parent to a young child.

Just when it seems like you couldn't possibly find the real estate (or money) for one more baby-related thing, there comes along some innovation that's so cute/genius/lifesaving you simply must have it — and we apologize in advance, because we're about to introduce you to precisely 18 more of those irresistible things.

All of these items made their debut last month at the ABC Kids Expo, which is the biggest kid-products trade show in North America and serves as a launchpad for the buzziest new gear around. Click through to see our top picks — some available right this second, others debuting early next year, all of which will make your life as a parent a bit easier.
