Our Story

The Baby Gear Essentials Team is a passionate group of friends, parents, and pediatricians who understand the frustration of not finding reliable and unbiased reviews online when it comes to choosing the best baby products for our little ones. That’s why we took matters into our own hands and created this website.

Our Responsibility

Our aim is to give you clear, in-depth and reliable information on baby products that you can trust. To do this we gather information on the top products out there to test. Then we purchase each product, run them through our tests, and write in-depth reviews to help you find what’s best for your family.

We currently review several categories of baby products, including: baby monitors, strollers, infant car seats, travel systems, baby carriers, high chairs, and baby swings.

We focus on products that meet and exceed safety requirements and guidelines.

We use subject matter experts, including pediatricians and parents, to test products and write in-depth product reviews.

We use high quality sources to gather information and also perform hands-on product reviews.

We provide honest reviews by calling out all of the information we can about a product: the good and the bad.

We want to stay impartial, and we don’t accept advertising or sponsorship from manufacturers of baby products.

We regularly revisit and update our content to ensure we provide the most accurate information.

We use affiliate marketing to keep the website running. This means we receive a small commission from Amazon or other affiliates if you decide to buy something via one of the links on our site. This comes at no extra cost for you.

We sometimes accept products from manufacturers for review, which we explicitly state in the review. This in no way impacts our review of the product, and we do not accept payment from companies to review their products. We only review products that we think are worthwhile for you.
