Welcome to our second annual Essential Baby awards program.

We launched the inaugural Essential Baby Awards in 2014, and were thrilled by the 5000 votes for the best prams, cots and baby paraphenalia, helping us award 10 very deserving winners.

After listening to your feedback on the voting process, we've made some important changes to how the awards are run, giving our readers more control to share their opinions on their favourite baby products.

In 2015, we gave you free reign to nominate any product you like. Quite simply, the product with the most votes in each category will win. It was completely up to you as mums and dads to share your faves with us. Here, we published the winners and runners-up in each category, giving new parents a great guide to tried-and-tested products on the market today.
