Three final winners in each of 12 categories will be selected from member reviews (including photos and videos), member wish lists, polling in forums, profiles, and the advice of our expert panel. The top product in each category will receive the Mothering Seal of Approval.
Plus we have some huge prizes to give away to those members who participate the most (see below).

How to Participate
Polls are now closed!
We are tallying results, and will announce next week!
Review Products
Reviews may still be submitted, but any reviews submitted after November 28th are not eligible for the contest.  Winners are being selected and will be announced next week.
Visit the categories below and leave your personal reviews about the products you have used. Share all of the reasons why you love (or hate) a product. Upload a video of you or a family member demonstrating the product, or post your favorite pic of the product in use. See our how-to on how to write a truly helpful review.
How to Win
Members will win too. Two reviews will be selected each week and each of the winning reviewers will receive a $25 Amazon gift certificate. These winners will be announced and featured in our weekly newsletter, MyMothering.
Once the contest has ended, we will select the three members who have been the most active during the contest. Winners will be selected based on member reviews (including photos and videos), member wish lists, polling in forums, nominations and seconds in forums, and profiles.
