Of course, the other experts we regularly consult are mums like you! We regularly check in with fellow mummas in our fast-growing social group #mumtribe and relay this information as best we can. We value your individual experience when it comes to pregnancy and motherhood, so the information and stories you share with us helps us to continue to provide the best information for mums who use our site.

M&B Recommends: How we work

At Mother&Baby we know that being a mum can be tough enough as it is, so shopping for the basics shouldn't be another stress. We strive to make things simple and fun, so you can spend less time on the computer and more quality time with your little one.

Our product recommendations are based on a combination of real-world testing from our burgeoning army of mum testers, and the extensive knowledge of our experienced editorial team and product specialists. Where we can, we also consult experts who specialise in that field to ensure you get the right advice along with the right product, and we listen to what you say as well. Our thriving mum community on our Facebook group #mumtribe also often hold great insights as to which products mums really like best and why, helping us highlight the products that meet what you really want.

Once our recommended products are chosen, we have a third party system set up that aggregates all the different prices on the web for that product. This means we can see the latest prices from a range of suppliers and show you the best price and where to buy it from. Some of these retailers offer us a commission, which, if you click, helps support our work, but the primary focus of our system is making sure you can find the best price.

For the essential products, our annual Mother&Baby Awards shortlist the top products tested, and you can find full reviews from our mum testers provided on the product page. The winners and runners up for each category then will appear in our top picks article for that product, along with other products that were rated highly by our team.

Because of the way our system is set up, this always means that choosing the best products comes first, then the retailer comes with whoever can offer you the best price. This way we can guarentee our product recommendations are independent and free from retailer bias.

Mother&Baby has been a trusted source of advice for over 60 years, and remains the UK's number one pregnancy, baby and toddler magazine. We take great importance in our responsibility to provide you with the best parenting and product advice, and hope our team and testers' hard work makes your life easier, and you and baby happier!
