Nursery awards 2018

Stocking the nursery is a serious business – if you’re going to buy a baby monitor, how do you know which one is best for you and your baby? And what are the sleep products that really help your baby get a better night’s shut eye?

That’s where we come in. Our panel of mum testers have put all the products below through their paces, living with them for a month in order to bring you real-mum reviews to help you make your decision. From the best baby monitors for 2018, the Moses baskets and cots that make life easier and the sleep products our mums swear by, you can rest assured all the products that made it onto the shortlist have been rigorously tested.

You won’t know which products have won until 28th November 2018, but for now, take a look at the products our mums thought to be worth investing in. Doing the baby essentials shop? View the full Mother & Baby Awards 2018 Shortlist here.
