SAN FRANCISCO, March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BabyCenter®, the #1 pregnancy and parenting digital resource, today announced the winners of its annual 2014 Moms' Picks Awards, the best baby and toddler products of the year according to the true experts: moms.

With a goal of creating the ultimate product recommendation engine, BabyCenter developed a three-step process to distill thousands of products down to the must-haves that moms love most. The months-long project culminated in an online voting event that generated more than 34,000 votes in 21 categories, as parents voiced their opinions and shared their experience.

"We know what a stressful and expensive task it can be for parents to find the right gear for their new babies," says Linda Murray, BabyCenter Global Editor-in-Chief. "Our research shows that the average parent spends more than $5,000 on baby products in the first year, and 52 percent feel overwhelmed by the experience. Our Moms' Picks Awards aim to make those tough decisions easier, with no regrets."   

These 21 "overall" Moms' Picks represent the winning products across multiple attributes. In addition, BabyCenter moms and dads chose their favorites in single categories such as looks, value for the money, ease of use, and quality. To see all the winners, visit
