Baby Gear Reviews

After you’ve done your research, looked at your lifestyle and decided what types of baby gear you want to buy, how do you sort through the assorted makes and models? Many parents will tell you that talking to other families can be helpful in choosing, say, one crib over another. But if you don’t know anyone who has had a baby recently, don’t worry. Many parents have posted thousands of reviews online.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • When looking at a product’s overall ratings, keep an eye on how many reviews it is based on. A high rating based on a few reviews may not be as reliable as a high rating based on several reviews.
  • Remember to keep your individual needs in mind. What works for someone in a small town may not work so well if you’re in an urban setting, and vice versa. Many neighborhoods have listservs for parents—you may find it helpful to join one so you can find advice from parents in a situation similar to yours.
