Musluv - Baby Sun Shade


A new entrant to the awards this year, Musluv, offers a great solution to the stroller category. The Baby Sun Shade Covers are a portable shade solution that shields delicate baby skin against the sun's UV rays and provides excellent UPF 50+ protection.


With their soft cotton ties, they can be used in lots of different ways such as a nursing cover, baby blanket, shade for an on-body baby carrier (for example a Baby Bjorn or ergo carrier) or car window shield. They are especially popular as a stroller (or bassinet) cover because they can be tied on it in a multitude of ways with gaps to provide good airflow into the pram to keep it cool and comfortable. They are baby-friendly and breathable, made of 100% layered cotton muslin finished with a UV treatment that follows the Oeko-Tex standard of safety.

Jackson Reece Kinder by Natural Plant Based Baby Wipes


There is no question in our mind on how Jackson Reece has managed to maintain their title as best baby wipes as all of the products from the Jackson Reece brand are made from plant and vegetable extracts only! They source the finest natural and organic ingredients and use only those that are proven to be nurturing to the skin and good for the planet. One of the most notable features of their baby wipes is their use of 100% biodegradable wood pulp that is obtained from FSC certified forests. Their wipes have been tested by an independent laboratory that shows in a compost or landfill their wipes will decompose naturally in 12 weeks. While many companies are now jumping on the bandwagon to reduce single-use plastics in their products, Jackson Reece continues to produce wipes that are 100% natural fibers that are 100% biodegradable and compostable.


We cannot tell you how many conversations we have had with parents about reducing soreness and reactions on their baby’s behinds by simply understanding what is in the wipes they are using. Our skin is our largest organ and it is susceptible to everything we put on it. Jackson Reece is honest and upfront about what they use in their products, so they provide explanations on all of their labels for the purpose of each ingredient. That way consumers will feel more comfortable with the substances they are using on their skin. We have never had a bad experience with these wipes nor the company.

Erbaviva Nursinig Balm


It is no secret that breastfeeding has its discomforts, pains, and complications, and you should always consult with a doctor in regards to your experiences. But for discomfort, you should absolutely try nursing balms. Our winner makes a certified USDA organic solution to safely hydrate dry, cracked, sore skin for better breastfeeding. There is no need to rinse off prior to breastfeeding. It is excellent also when using a breast pump as it provides a better seal between the breast and the breast pump.
