What are the affiliate products we feature and review?
The affiliate products we feature or review are not chosen by our advertisers, nor do the brands making the products have any input on the reviews we give the products. Our editors search for the best products that we know our readers will love. Companies often send us samples and if we think a product is amazing, then we feature it in a post to share with you.
How do we review affiliate products?
Often companies send us samples and we spend hours and often days researching the products that go into every product story. We only feature products we think are worth your time and money. Our mama editors make personalized recommendations based on a number of factors: reviews, ratings, brand recognition, features, pricing, value, and of course, personal experience with the product.
Why do we review and do we earn commissions off affiliated links?
We know that moms are busy so we do the research for you. We want to make sure you’re getting the best products out there. Our goal is to help you narrow down your search and make smart buying choices.
We also earn a small percentage of the money you spend when a reader clicks through to a product buying page via an affiliate link and completes a purchase. This revenue helps pay for our team of writers, helps us create more high-quality content, continue to tell the stories we love, and share our expert advice with you.
Tell me more about affiliate commissions.
Mothering.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, Etsy Affiliate, and other similar affiliate advertising programs, which are designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to such affiliates’ websites such as Amazon.com. We earn a small percentage of the money you spend when you click through to a product buying page and complete a purchase. If you choose to click, the URL will contain a small code that identifies links from our website, and lets the affiliate partner or retailer know to send us a referral fee. This does not mean we are bound to Amazon, Etsy, or any other retailer or affiliate partner, nor does it lead us to favor some products or companies over others. We earn the referral fee on any item a reader buys, and do not have a bias for you to choose one product over the other. Our product reviews are prepared independently by our editors and freelancers, without direction from our affiliate partners or retailers. Our editorial team is not responsible for monetizing the content and does not work directly with any advertisers.
