New to Bounty?
As mums ourselves, we know first-hand how overwhelming it can be to choose the best products to set you on the path for parenthood.
And the nappy-bag is a doozy of a choice. There’s just so much STUFF to lug around. Nappies, swaddles, sippy cups, wipes, clothes, creams, bibs … and that’s just some of the stuff you need for bub. And when you add in the wallet, iPad, keys, phone and other stuff that YOU need and well … you’re basically a pack-horse now.
So do you go for minimalist and try to haul around less stuff? Or do you go for alllllll of the pockets? Whatever you decide, you can be confident that someone has come up with a stylish and practical solution for you.
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.
Last year the awards 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.
