We know first-hand how overwhelming it can be to choose the right products for your baby. Which is why the 2016 Mother & Baby awards, sponsored by Babies “R” Us, seek to make it easier, helping Aussie mums find the best buys for their bubs.

Now in their fifth year, the awards highlight the best products in the baby care industry, from nappies and wipes, to big ticket items such as cots, cars and family holidays.

The Mother & Baby award rosette signals that a product has been exhaustively tried, tested and voted the best by real mums, and given the tick of approval by a panel of experts.

Here are the gifts to get new mums in 2017.

Bio-Oil, from $14.99, is a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It’s also effective for ageing and dehydrated skin. Bio-Oil’s formulation is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. It contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil, which changes the overall consistency, making it light and non-greasy.

The Babies “R” Us Mini Maternity Pillow & Wedge Set, $49.99, has everything you need for a comfortable night’s sleep during pregnancy. The long, curved pillow shape promises leg, tummy, back and hip support during pregnancy, while the wedge provides added back support. Both the pillow and cover are machine washable too.

Developed in co-operation with a paediatric dietician, the Philips AVENT Combined Steamer & Blender, $219.95, makes moving to solids a breeze. A fast and convenient way to prepare healthy, homemade baby meals without the hassle: simply steam fruit, vegetables, fish or meat then flip, blend and serve without having to transfer food.

The set that started it all! The Milestone Baby Cards, $29.95, are 30 photo cards that you can use to capture your baby’s first year in weeks, months and memorable moments. Add a card to your baby pictures and you will never forget when your little one slept through the night, rolled over or said mama for the first time.

Recommended by health care professions, SRC Recovery Shorts, $189.95, help speed up your post-baby recovery, reduce pain and increase pelvic and back support. The anatomical panels provide consistent gentle medical grade compression to C-section or perineal wound areas, while the lightweight breathable fabric provides superior comfort.
