Mother and Baby Awards

We are thrilled to finally be able to announce the winners of this year's Mother & Baby Magazine Awards.

The winning baby products of the year have all been exhaustively tried, tested and voted on by real mums, bubs and Mother & Baby’s expert panel.

Products were put through their paces over a period of six months in three different settings: at home in real-life situations, in a retail environment and online. The products submitted were assessed on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
