New to Bounty?
Ain’t nothing sweeter than a freshly bathed baby. They sure smell good (most of the time), so when it comes to lathering up our pure little bundles of innocence, we want to make sure that we’re using the best of the best on their little bodies.
Fortunately there is no lack of eco-friendly, chemical-free washes on the Australian market, and they’re perfect for that brand-new skin.
The winning baby products of the year have all been exhaustively tried, tested and voted on by real mums, bubs and Bounty’s expert panel.
This year the awards, proudly brought to us by Babies ‘R’ Us, saw more than 40,000 Aussie parents plus a panel of industry experts cast their votes on a range of products from nappies and car seats, to prams and breast pumps, judging each one on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
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.
