New to Bounty?
When a new baby comes into the world it’s only natural to want to buy things for them – and we’re all for that because baby shopping is adorable – but there’s some wonderful products that will make a new mum’s life a little easier to.
We’ve rounded up some of the best, and most useful, products for mum in the gallery below.
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.
