MadeForMums Awards 2018 winners: best parenting products revealed

After thousands of hours rigorously testing and judging almost 500 products in 85 categories, we can reveal the winners of this year’s MadeForMums Awards


We put hundreds of pregnancy, maternity, baby and family products under the microscope as we tested and deliberated to bring you the very best.


Industry experts, real mums, dads and their children, and celebrity parents joined the MFM judging team to scrutinise all the shortlisted products, while at-home testers shared their experiences using the products in daily life.

We’re obsessive about parenting products, so we are excited we can finally reveal our Gold, Silver and Bronze winners – and some very worthy Finalists!

It’s our day job to test thousands of parenting products each year to provide the best, most honest, comprehensive and useful parenting reviews.

With these awards, we’ve taken it one step further by finding, judging and awarding all the very best.

So here’s the full list of the 2018 MadeForMums Awards Winners…
