If there’s one thing we know around here, it’s products. From the most innovative gear to buzzed about brands and the hippest duds, we spend the entire year in search of the best of the best. As 2017 comes to an end, we’ve thought back on the past 12 months and rounded up the brands and products we’ve loved the most:

Still in love with the Austlen Entourage! It has been the biggest lifesaver this year, especially when traveling. People always comment on what a great stroller it is, even the flight staff. Now that we have two [babies], we appreciate it even more.  Nicole Delma, The Hamptons

I’m a huge fan of wool (keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer). Specific brands I go to for this are Nui Organics and Woolino (the sleep sacks are amazing).  Britney Harmon, Philadelphia

Too many to choose! My favorite brand discoveries this year are Little Goodall and Ciao Bimba, and favorite product, hands down, is the LILLEbaby CarryOn Woven. It’s so amazingly cozy, it’s brought baby wearing back to a regular thing for my 30 pound, almost-three-year-old. Favorite new website is rose & rex, my new go-to for toys and gifts — the entire site is impeccably curated and gives tons of educational and developmental tips.  Lindsey Rickard, Associate Editor

I’m so into Mini Boden lately. They’ve really stepped up their game and have great stuff …and amazing sales.  Megan Shroy, Columbus, OH

I’m obsessed with Pepper Kids. The clothes look straight out of a fairy tale. I can’t get enough of the accessories for my girls. And as the weather changes from mild to brutal, the soft and cozy hats from Skida have been our new go-to headwear.   Melissa Alcorn, StrollerTraffic President

One of my favorite brands of 2017 has been Inglesina. We have their Fast Table chair, which is super portable… and the optional tray fits in the dishwasher. We also purchased their Net umbrella stroller – it’s only 11 pounds and stands on its own when folded.  Rachelle Mallik, Chicago

Because it’s winter and we’re on a constant mission to keep the babies feet warm, one of my favorite products at the moment are the Zutano Baby Booties. They’re so warm, they last forever, they come in tons of different colors, and the babes can’t kick them off.  I’m currently obsessed with Little Unicorn quilts, swaddle blankets, crib sheets, nursing covers etc. [They come] in the cutest patterns and the material is amazingly soft.  Jessica Mason, San Diego

Cat and Jack by Target gets my award, hands down. I’m obsessed!! I’m constantly asked if the boys jackets are made by Burton.  Kristin Quinn, Boston

We love Kyte baby sleep sacks. They are so incredibly soft and cozy! Michelle Green, Austin

Burt’s Bees. I just discovered they have affordable, adorable and organic baby clothes. Erica Bowton, Nashville

I am sort of obsessed right now with Froddo shoes— they are the softest leather and so cute! They have great soles that are structured for each age group. Also I love the Roberta Roller Rabbit pjs. They are the softest pjs, and are made of such a high quality that both my kids wear them nightly and outgrow them before they ever get worn out. And the colors don’t fade!  Michelle Green, Austin

My favorite brand is Patagonia. Keeps my kids and myself warm with a little style.  Michelle Lindsay, Brooklyn

My favorite clothing brand this year is Black i Boys. [The] drop shorts grow with the child and come in a range of hip colors for those with a modern, minimal aesthetic. The price point is perfect and I love supporting a local, Mom-owned brand. [There are] awesome rompers and drop shorts for mama too — which I can dress up/down with ease and not fret if I have to get dirty with my boys too. The brand is fun, unique and unisex. It’s a winner in our house.  Nara Walker, LA

My favorite product of 2017 is my adventure-mobile: my Bumbleride Indie Twin.  Jesi Verchota, Chicago

My favorite brand was… is… and probably will always be RH Baby and Child.  Anne Cutler, New Orleans

The prints and detailing on Lenny Lemons’ baby and toddler clothes make me a little obsessive about checking their website so I can snag their newest pieces.  Dana Hardek, Editorial Assistant
