We pulled together 18 of the most popular baby bottles and put them to the test. Filled them, shook them upside-down, put them in the dishwasher, warmed them, froze them, fed 6 different babies with them, and tried out the various nipple flows. In the end, we found several top rated bottles that are high performing, low colic, and reliable. All of them are BPA-free, using either glass or BPA-free plastic (we strongly recommend glass baby bottles or stainless steel baby bottles). Here are the top 5 baby bottles of the year.

Below we list the top 5 baby bassinets we found (the best was the Halo bassinet), followed by our full reviews of about a dozen different bassinets.

We stuffed them with baby products, tossed them on the ground, tried out the insulated baby bottle pockets, spilled milk in them, forced the zipper open and shut, and put a 25-pound weight inside to make sure the fabric and straps were durable and comfortable. We found about a dozen great diaper bags, most of which come in several different colors and patterns - so don't judge only by the picture we provide! Here are the top 5 diaper bags we found, followed by in-depth reviews of about a dozen different options.
