Consumer watchdog Which? has revealed a list of the most and least useful baby products ahead of the Black Friday sales which are gearing up to take place next week (Friday 27 November).
The list was compiled after speaking to 600 parents who shared their experiences with a wide range of baby products, revealing those which they rated most useful and others which had the potential to be a ‘waste of money’.
Unsurprisingly, the products which scored the highest were essential items such as car seats, pushchairs, cots and cribs.
Pushchairs were considered the most useful product overall, with 98% of parents saying they found them useful, while a similarly high 96% of parents stated that they wouldn’r be without their car seat.
Stairgates and highchairs also ranked highly in the list, as did play mats and digital ear thermometers.
Door baby bouncers, baby reins, sleeping pods, nappy disposal bins and manual breast pumps all came bottom of the list, with between 20 – 30% of parents saying they didn’t find them useful at all.
