Buyer’s Guide 2002: 278 of the very best products for babies, toddlers and their parents

Martina Witte

FROM THE HIGH-TECH TO THE OLD-FASHIONED, BABY PRODUCTS ARE proliferating. While choice is a good thing, so is not wasting time, money or patience on inferior goods. That’s why we’re bringing you the safest, easiest-to-use and fairest-priced products available. Every item that made the cut was rested and approved by babies, toddlers or parents. If a toy didn’t pass muster with a baby, out it went. A nursing mom couldn’t negotiate a breast pump? Consider that pump dumped. And if a parent found a car seat difficult to install properly or a stroller tough to push straight, we nixed those models, too.

But that doesn’t mean we’ve overlooked fun and style. Sure, your newborn won’t know what he’s wearing or care what the dresser in his nursery looks like, but you will. We didn’t ignore you or your own needs, either: You’ll find luscious maternity clothing and underwear and, for the first time, stuff just for new dads, including a manly-man diaper bag he’ll be proud to carry.

We and our testers, large and small, had a lot of fun putting this Buyer’s Guide together. We hope you find it an inspiring and informative resource.
