13 Of 'Consumer Reports' Top Rated Baby Gear

I'm usually the hurried shopper who looks for the best value on a budget, and that's it. When it comes to baby gear, however, I tend to keep safety in mind, too. Consumer Reports top rated baby products makes up the best combination of safety and popularity in products. That's a treasured resource to moms whose concern for their little ones is enough to make them dig deep into online ratings and product reviews, paralyzed by information overload.

Safety assured by the Consumer Reports researchers, as well as real parent reviews after using those products, is a winning combination that will leave you confident that you've got the safest products for your kiddos. Not to mention, it will keep you from becoming bleary eyed from researching the depths of the internet into the wee hours of the night.

One of the nice things about Consumer Reports ratings for baby and kid products is that they look at a few different categories (ease of use, safety, and weight and maneuverability, to name a few), which you can compare in a handy chart. That means you don't have to compile your own spreadsheet to compare 12 different strollers or car seats. Amazon's star rating system makes it easy to quickly see whether those products really pan out with day-to-day use, too. Go ahead and give yourself a break from hours of research, and let the pros at Consumer Reports put in the work for you. If you like any of these top-rated baby products, they're just an easy click away on Amazon.
