Our Product Review Guidelines

At Parents, we are by your side for the big life decisions and memory-making moments. Our mission is to lighten the load and provide you with trustworthy advice as you raise the next generation of confident and compassionate kids. When it comes to the many purchasing decisions you make for your family, we’ll do the heavy lifting through our well-developed process for vetting the items we recommend.

Our team of qualified, experienced writers and editors thoroughly research the marketplace and speak with industry experts (including pediatricians, OB-GYNs, and registered dietitians) on what to look for and how to evaluate each purchase. 

While we do receive affiliate commission on some of the items purchased through our content, the product recommendations are purely editorial. Parents’ recommendations are curated based on performance, test results, and hands-on experience. 

As the parenting space is ever changing, we want to note that all products, including those we review and recommend, may be subject to recalls or revised use recommendations. We, therefore, urge you to monitor any official announcements from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) that may be related to items you purchase.
