A convertible car seat is one that can face the rear or the front of the vehicle to accommodate babies of different ages or developmental stages. The Best Convertible Car Seat category is open to any currently available convertible car seat.
Baby carriers come in all different shapes, styles and patterns, and any of them are eligible for Best Baby Carrier this year. You can nominate any baby carrier that is available as of the beginning of the nomination phase. This includes all baby carrier types from small, handmade carrier companies as well as major manufacturers.
A travel system is an infant car seat and stroller sold as a bundle to work together or separately. Any travel system that is available during the nomination phase is eligible in this category.
Most parents end up buying more than one stroller before their child gets to pre-school age. What if you could only choose one? Which stroller would it be? You can nominate any currently available stroller of any type or style in this category. Lightweight strollers, reversible strollers, jogging strollers and other styles are all eligible.
