New to Bounty?
Fact: every baby will get some kind of nappy rash at some time during their nappy-wearing life.
Sometimes it will just be a mild rash and your baby won’t even be aware of it – but sometimes (in fact, often) it can be so inflamed that your baby will wince every she wees.
The best thing is there are some very good lotions and potions out there which can ease your baby’s discomfort almost overnight. These are our faves.
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: real-life situations, a retail environment and online. The products submitted were assessed on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
