Baby-Tech: What's worth it & what can't you live without?

Hey guys. Need some help.

So recently my wife and I got the awesome news that she's pregnant and, as of March 2014, I'll be a new father. Seeing as this is an area of technology that i've never explored before, I'm wondering if The Verge and it's hive-mentality can help me out. Any kinda cool gadget's you recommend? What is worth it and what should I stay away from? Like, is an actual baby-monitor system worth it or is an IP-Camera sufficient? What about that crazy automatic-folding stroller from CES a few years back? Parenting via AR.Drone? What do you guys think?
