You can find just about anything on Amazon these days. From toilet paper to tablets, the mega-popular e-commerce site has every item on your list and has quickly become everyone’s favourite one-stop shop. Heck, for some of us, perusing the site has started to feel like more of a hobby than a necessity.
It's no surprise that moms are some of Amazon's biggest fans. Baby waking in the middle of the night? Hop online and order teething medication at 2 AM! Toddler threw your phone across the room in a fit of rage? Order that protective case you've been meaning to buy in 15 seconds flat!
Affordable prices, crazy convenience and super fast shipping make it a great choice for busy families, but at times, the massive selection can feel a bit overwhelming. That’s why we love getting first-hand recommendations from people we know, so we asked all the moms at Mabel's Labels to tell us the BEST items they've bought off Amazon.

These are a must for travel with toddlers! They're super affordable, fit comfortably to any little head and have a lower maximum volume than regular headphones. They also feature a SharePort, so one device can be shared between two kids (read: less fights).
Car Essential Oil Diffuser
If you have young kids, you're probably driving a vehicle that's littered with dropped snacks and mystery spills.

It keeps your car smelling amazing and fresh without the use of chemical air freshener, and you can't beat the price!

They don't need greasing or spraying at all, they're dishwasher friendly, safe up to 480 degrees and nothing will EVER stick to them - even those cookies you accidentally burned when you got distracted playing with Lego.

Tub Hair-Washing Helper
The genius who came up with this idea had definitely had enough of washing a screaming 3-year-old's hair (haven't we all?). This simple-but-brilliant tool clips onto the tub faucet to create a gentle waterfall that kids can lean back into to rinse their hair. It also acts as a faucet protector and can be filled to dispense bubble bath. And there's no reason why a mom couldn't use it to wash her hair after a relaxing soak, right?
Maybe this one is for the dads, but for families who love to grill, this cedar BBQ scraper cleans efficiently and eliminates ALL of the risks associated with classic metal bristle brushes. It also looks way nicer than your typical BBQ tools.
Weighted blankets have been shown to significantly reduce stress and promote a sense of calm.
