Enhancing Baby and Toddler Must-Haves: The Bump Launches Second Phase of the Best of The Bump Awards Series

Tested by Parents and Approved by The Bump Editors, the Second Phase of the 2023 Best of The Bump Awards Series Features the Product List for Babies and Toddlers 

NEW YORK, NY, October 17, 2023 — Car seats. Diapers. Monitors. Selecting the right products for babies and toddlers can be daunting, especially for new parents. To simplify the process, The Bump, a leading multi-platform brand for pregnancy and parenting, announces the expansion of the Best of The Bump Awards series. The second phase of these awards introduces some of the most effective and beloved products for both babies and toddlers in 2023. Featuring one winner for each of the 13 product categories, the Best of The Bump Awards incorporated parent feedback throughout the review process, including real-life usage and input from national surveys. Editors of The Bump chose the winning items based on extensive market research to identify the bestselling, highest-rated products that make parents’ lives easier. They evaluated every item based on ease of use, quality, effectiveness, style, and value. This marks the second iteration of the Best of The Bump Awards; the first one launched in June 2023, focused on pregnancy and postpartum products. 

“We are thrilled to unveil the second phase of the Best of The Bump Awards, signaling our continued dedication to helping parents find top-tier choices for both babies and toddlers. With stringent selection procedures, invaluable insights from real parents and comprehensive market research, The Bump proudly identifies outstanding products that truly merit the coveted Best of The Bump seal of excellence,” said Ashlee Neuman, Content Director at The Bump.

The Best of The Bump Awards series takes immense pride in involving real parents in the product review process. Experienced editors, who are parents themselves, meticulously identified and researched hundreds of top-rated products, carefully considering the specialized needs of parents. Parent testers then evaluated each shortlisted item in real-life scenarios in their homes with their own children, assessing factors like effectiveness, ease of use, quality, style and value. With this rigorous testing protocol, plus survey results from parents across the country, The Bump chose one winning product for each of the 13 categories in this second phase of the awards series. 

The award-winning products for baby and toddlers are:
